April a Month of Inspired Creativity

Last month I decided to challenge myself and create something every day in April.  OK it may not happen every day since I already missed the very first day.  I don’t know why but I totally forgot that yesterday was April 1, even though my son played an April fools joke on me, and yes I fell for it, I still forgot and I didn’t create anything.  But, in my defense, in the morning I was busy getting ready for Easter Sunday with family.  The food was delicious as always, and I had a really great time seeing everyone and I got to meet our new sweet baby girl her name is Layna Rae.  And yes, I can’t believe myself I didn’t take any pictures, but I’ll get one and post at another time.

One reason why I wanted to create something every day in April is because last year I decided to create a 44 card oracle deck “Magical Journey”   It all came to me in one moment, and it’s been a process of love.  I already have several cards which I can’t wait to post and share with you.

day 1

I signed up for a year long course, Soulful Scribe, given by Belle Coeur  Today I got the first email, and the theme for this month’s contemplation is all about “cultivating and nurturing your listening heart.”  While reading I was inspired to create this card – listen to your heart!  It just may wind up being one of my “Magical Journey” oracles.

Not to worry I won’t overload you with my daily creations, but I will update every so often.

If you feel inspired, I’d love it if you will join me. No obligation.  Doesn’t have to be anything big, it could be a picture you were inspired to take that made you feel good.  A quote you read that sparked a feeling in you.  Or something you wrote.  Feel free to post your inspiration here in the comments bellow, love to see it.

B a l a n c e

I was looking through the pictures that I took that morning and this one jumped out at me, I just love these flowers and their vibrant colors of purple and yellow, and as I was looking at it thinking I’m going to use it in my next blog post, the word balance came to me and I immediately knew that it’s the perfect word and it has to be here.


When I was finished with the photo, I was trying to write how balance has come just when I needed it, but no matter how I said it, it just wasn’t right.  For two days now I’ve tried to write what balance means to me, how sometimes I’m out of balance, why we need to create balance…but I haven’t been able to.  The words just get stuck and I can’t get them out, it’s like there’s a wall stopping them from getting through.

It finally hit me that there isn’t anything for me to say, that what it means to me, my interpretation of it, is not the glory of this word.  That the word wants to be on it’s own allowing it’s message to unfold naturally for everyone and not as interpreted by me.

So, here it is – b a l a n c e – welcome it, carry it around with you, bring it to your mind throughout the day, think on it, let it unfold for you, and allow it to reveal it’s wisdom to you.

And if you’d like to share here in the comments bellow, I’d love to know how balance revealed itself to you, what message does it hold for you.



It’s Spring…YEEEAAAHHH!!

Spring is showing herself, I can feel her in the air, time to let go of the heaviness you’ve been carrying around with you and bring in the fresh.

Bring yourself out of hibernation and step into spring with lightness, leave all the heaviness behind you and open the door to expectations for new growth.

Welcome change, revisit your dreams, keep the ones you still want, let go of the ones you’re not ready for or the ones that are not for you anymore.


Your life is a magical journey; find the joy and magic in the small and ordinary.

Get curious, plant new seeds, and let the magic sprout.

Maybe start a new ritual practice. Doesn’t have to be anything big and heavy. You can repeat an affirmation a few times,





Just stopping for one minute every day and placing your focus and attention on your self, will create a change in your self that will transform you.

You’re welcome to use my affirmations above or create your own.  Do what feels good for you and if you can come and share with us here in the comment section bellow, love to chat.

Happy Spring Blessings


My Photos at the Chinese New Year Display

Last week when I was in Las Vegas visiting with my son and family, my son took me to see the Chinese New Year display at the Bellagio hotel.  Just amazing!!!

In Chinese astrology the dog occupies the eleventh position in the zodiac and this is the year of the Earth Dog.  If you were born in 2018, 2006, 1994, 1982, 1970, 1958, 1946 and 1934, you were born in the year of the dog.  It’s believed that a person’s characteristics are determined by that year’s animal and element.  I was born in the year of the ‘Fire Dog’ and some of my characteristics are, intelligent, hard working, and sincere… 🙂


There are 18 dogs on display representing the year 2018.  Among some of it’s attributes the dog is loyal, intelligent, honest, and playful.  We are reminded that these are some of the energies of this year.


There are Chinese lanterns hanging all over and cherry blossoms and a big money tree for prosperity.



The conservatory was crowded which made it a bit difficult for me to get the shots I wanted.



In the middle of everything there’s koi pond, with lots of gold fish swimming around.



Flowers, flowers and more flowers everywhere.  I love the mannequins, all the outfits are made out of flowers and I was wondering how they keep the flowers from wilting.  My son noticed looking closely at the flowers, that you can see that they’re wet and water is dripping down, so I’m assuming that there’s a water system inside the mannequin to keep them fresh.




Oh and here’s my favorite son.  (don’t tell my other kids that he’s my favorite)



The displays change with the seasons and I love that when it’s taken down 90% of the trees, plants and flowers are recycled to celebrate and honor our earth.

I had a fantastic time taking these photos, everything was so beautiful, the colors are gorgeous, the creativity of this display is amazing.  We ended the day with a delicious caesar salad and pizza at Grimaldi’s.  I loved being with my family, and now I’m home wiped out.  🙂

Celebrating My Writing

I’m so happy, look at what came in the mail, my ‘Writual Blessings’ illustrated cards by Cynthia Morris. Love Love Love them.

After I cleared any negative energy from the cards I asked the question, what can you give me, and the card that flew out of the deck as I was shuffling is “celebrate your writing” oh wow, the most perfect card.

I don’t think I’ve ever celebrated my writing. I have thanked my writing. I say affirmations for writing, but never honored it by actually celebrating all that writing has blessed me with.

writual blessings

Writing has helped me to open up within, to declare who I am, to get over fears that were blocking me and uncover fears I didn’t know I had. Through writing I have gained strength and courage.

I have found my true voice and stepped into and opened to a universe that was waiting within me, a treasure chest full of creative gifts.

Writing has helped me to sort out ideas. Spill my guts out on the page. Get clear about things. And while writing I’ve received answers to questions, guidance, and inspiration.

Writing has been and is my divine gift.  Through writing I’ve been able to light the way for others, open doors and inspire, uplift, encourage others, and make a small difference in other peoples lives.

So this is my first celebration honoring my writing, my creativity, my inspiration, and my Source.

My own writing blessing –

I am grateful for my highest inner voice

I am grateful for my highest creativity

I am grateful for my highest inspiration

I am grateful for my highest writing

That is for my highest good and that of all, and so it is.


Writing is my joy, my sanctuary, my love.  Writing every day has made me a better writer.  And so I continue to CELEBRATE and say YES to my writing.

Come and share your own celebration you have about your writing, in the comment section below.  Love to hear from you.
