I am back...life sometimes offers opportunities to grow beyond what is expected.
Challenges to say the least, but I see it as all good. It has given me the opportunity to
emerse myself in positive words and thoughts. When you stop and think about it how
much of the "self talk" that goes on in our minds is negative? By my observation it can be a lot
if we do not keep a watch over our thoughts. Think about how our very thoughts that we are thinking on a regular consistent basis are sent out and create the very things we are thinking about...good or bad. Science can now prove that our thoughts create our reality. So, I decided to create a book of positive words, thoughts and goals/dreams to read over each day.
I kept hearing in my spirit, "The Magikal Book of Certain Events".
You may wonder why I chose that title...well, for one there is magic all around us. A sunrise in the morning is a magical event, a butterfly showing up at the ocean, (which happened to me, by the way.) etc. Just the little things in life can be special and magical. Again, what we focus on we create, therefore it becomes a "certain event".
Through all this I have to say that, "It's all good!"
On a crafty note: I simply bought a $2 notebook with a vinyl cover and cut out all the words and pictures from magazines for my Magikal book. I found pictures that meant something to me and would represent all the elements of earth that are so important to me. Air, Earth, Fire, Water and Spirit.
Also, I have been spending any free time I have at Pinterest. A fun spot to create a gathering of pictures.

I celebrated my birthday by going to Hampton Beach with my family. I saw some amazing Sand Sculptures and although this one appears small it is not! They were huge! I really wish I would have spent more time studying all of them. So much thought went in to each one.
My youngest daughter had not been to the ocean since she was younger. It was amazing to see her delight at the smallest things. (She is 13 going on 14).
She was amazed at the streaks in the sand left by the water and the vastness of the ocean....it was such sweet moments with my children.
Stitching the words, "from the stars"
A birthday gift to myself...a book I have been wanting for the longest! It is by Aminah Robinson.
An artist I admire and am so inspired by. I was delighted when I opened the package containing the book. The book has a "puffy" book cover and it is rather large. I did not expect that....
another surprise...foldouts in the book. This particular one shows how long her work is. She makes dolls to attach to her work.
Check out her website...it will tell you all about her art and how she does it. Also there are fabulous videos...
