Well...I survived the Reserve Art Event. The Universe gave me sales...but, not a sell out. Turned out the Universe was listening to another underlying request deep in my heart. That request has been going on for quite some was to develop a new art technique and take my paintings to a new level. Because the sales were a little slower than I had hoped...I had the time to discover and develop this new technique. I know it will take my artwork to all the places I dream about in the future.

My challenge now is to completely turn my studio around in 6 days. It's a mess...a disaster after preparing for the online show. I need to open the doors to the public December 21. Yikes.

So...starting today...I'm on a mission accomplish this.

My card for today said: All-That-Is...Is Benefiting from My Existence.

"No matter what has caused your unique point of view to come about-it has come about. You do exist; you are thinking; you are perceiving; you are asking ---and you are being answered. And All-That-Is is benefiting from your existence and from your point of view."

Wow... this is so good to know. Instead of getting down about creating a huge mess in my studio, I need to realize how many people benefited from the great artwork that was created. Not the mess. I wrote about this 6 day challenge on my art blog to help me meet my goals. I also need to realize that others will find inspiration and help through my shortcomings and accomplishments.

I will meet all of my goals in the next 6 days. I'll get this place turned around and looking fantastic. Because there will be a lot of people who will walk through that door and benefit from my work...and my existence.

I've got a lot of work to do. But, I'm up for the challenge!!!! Love to ALL!!!!

Today is my Reserve Art Event. I have loads still to do by 7pm.

I'm thankful that everything is coming together. I'm thankful for the computer and Internet. I'm thankful for my talent. I'm thankful for my family. I'm thankful for Danny. I'm thankful that the coffee didn't leave a spot of my nice shirt today.

I will get everything done by 7pm with ease and no stress. All the items will be listed, video shot, and the invitation will arrive in every one's email at 7pm. I have the power to make all this happen.

From the universe I need a sell out show.

Thank you so much. I love you.

Beside my bed, I have a set of Ester and Jerry Hicks "Ask and It Is Given" Cards. They are magical cards that help you to return to your personal power. Unfortunately, I'm usually too tired at night, and too busy in the morning to use them. So, I decided to bring them to the studio with me to help me get into the best frame of mind to start my day. I tried it yesterday, and it worked much better. I chose a card, and thought and studied it. I found myself remembering it's teachings throughout the day. So, I'm going to try to make it a daily habit.

This is my card for today: I Will Do My Best To Make The Best of It. On the backside it says - A key to regaining your feeling of empowerment is to decide, right now, no matter how good or how bad you are feeling, you are going to do your best to make the best of it. Do that again and again, and in a short period of time you will find yourself in a very good-feeling place.

I know this is so true. But, it is so hard right now. I am worried and stressed over my Reserve Art Event this Friday. I'm going to bed late, and not sleeping well. Deep down, I know it's totally silly. I've already had several customers contact me about buying several of the pieces. I've had wonderful people in blogland write about the event to promote it for me. I have some really great, pieces for it. Some of the best that I've done in years. But, still I worry. I worry that it won't be good enough, or that I won't have enough items. I worry that I'll disappoint someone. I totally need to get over this and change my mindset or all those worries will manifest.

So, today...I will do my best to feel great about myself and my show. I will enjoy the feeling of it's success before it gets here. I will take care of myself, and get rest.

Today, I'm thankful that my kids sprung into action and managed to get to school on time, even though Mom was running behind. I'm thankful that my wonderful husband called the electrician to meet today to get more light into my studio. I'm thankful that I have this great big, fabulous studio to create in everyday. I'm thankful for my talent.

From the Universe I need a sell out show. Thank you. I love you.

What a wonderful feeling it is to wake up and be so excited to start the day! I couldn't wait to get to the studio to create today. I love my work. Getting dressed reminded me of being in high school again and wanting to get to school as fast as I could to tell a friend a secret or see a boyfriend. Remember we didn't have cell phones back then, and Mama and Daddy would only let me talk on the phone 1 hr a night. Anyway...I digress... Just to come to the studio and create things I love....I feel so blessed. Thank you for allowing me to do this.

Today I'm thankful for the happiness and fulfillment I feel in my heart from being able to do what I love so much. My studio in the picture. I'm thankful for my life partner who reminded me last night that I'm not the Queen, and should help out around the house a little more. I'm thankful that my 6 year old listened to my "firm, most serious, Mom speech" about her behavior and took it to heart. I'm thankful that my 13 year old is such a responsible young man, and helped out in a rush this morning without being asked. I'm thankful I finished the painting for the book, and the author seemed very happy with it.

My intentions for today are to create with love and passion. Enjoy my life. Be considerate of others and not get too wrapped up in myself.

From the Universe I need....more folks to buy my artwork at the reserve art event. I need more people to discover and love my work on the Internet. Security in all aspects of my life.

Thank you for everything. I love you.

I haven't posted in a while because I've been in Atlanta packing up our old house, and having Thanksgiving with family.

I learned a lot packing up our old things that I haven't seen in 6 months. I realized how long I was living with my eyes shut, and feeling like I always needed more. I was on autopilot. Not good. It gave me a new appreciation for what I have in my life now.

Today, I'm thankful for my incredible, wonderful husband. My friend, my love. I'm thankful for his unconditional love. I'm thankful that he doesn't have to work a stressful job in Atlanta anymore. I'm thankful for how he provides for our family, and never asks for more than an occasional foot rub. I'm thankful that he bought a CD I had been wanting and surprised me.

I'm thankful for my children. My wild little girl, with the carefree heart. Who can spin a million messes in less than a minute and make you laugh at loud with her silly jokes. I'm thankful for my serious 13 year old artist...who already knows that he wants to attend a highly acclaimed art college. If I had only known that at 13. I'm thankful that he is an individual who doesn't follow the crowd. Even though he gets picked on and has a bad day, he is still proud of who he is at the end of the day.

I'm thankful for my husband's family. Being the adopted misfit kid my whole life, I finally feel like I fit somewhere.

I'm thankful for my new house and waking up to see the ocean this morning. I'm thankful for my studio.

My intentions for today: To finish the art for the book deadline with ease. To make art for me, that captures my emotions and beauty. Art that will appeal to others because it came from my heart.

I need the Universe to take care of getting folks interested and excited about my Reserve Art Event. I need the Universe to provide the sales needed to support my new studio and give my family the extra income they deserve.

I love you,

Yesterday, didn't go at all like I had hoped, expected or intended. So, I need to focus and relax more today.


I'm thankful for my strong husband, who always stands beside me no matter what. My children who just make my world a better place by simply smiling. The sunlight today. My studio. My talent.

My intentions for today: to get shipments out. Work on new jewelry with more focus. Have fun with my art and not get so serious and worried about it. Spend an hour cleaning the studio.

From the universe: more etsy and ebay sales. To find a good friend on the island who enjoys the things I do, the ability to let go and create more freely.

Keeping on Track

I'm starting this blog today as a personal mission to keep myself on track with the Laws of Attraction. I know they work...I have changed my life in less than a year from watching the movie, "The Secret", studying the Laws, and keeping my thoughts, words and actions all firing together. But, sometimes it's hard to stay on track. So, from this day forward, I plan to write about things I'm thankful for in my life, set my intentions and send out lots of love through this blog. The Laws of Attraction are very powerful, and the Internet is very together...I don't think you can go wrong. Please feel free to post your thoughts, gratitude and intentions in the comments...we'll work together and design our lives.
