Inspirational Blog Party! ...

Hello Sweet Bloggieland Friends! Here's a little post today to remind you all of a fabulous Blog Party at Inspiration Avenue. I hope you find some time to visit - better yet, participate! The gifts offered to the participating winners are scrumptious!

Our wonderful Team Leader, Sharon of Mana Moon Studios, asked each of us Inspiration Avenue members to share our thoughts on the following - my answers are from my heart:

"What inspires you most about our team?"

Without question, it is the beautiful people that it is comprised of. Not only are they extraordinarily talented in their own medium, they are some of the kindest, most compassionate women I've had the sincere honor of coming to know. They are selflessly supportive of one another and provide a tireless source of encouragement to each other. The on-line venue for artists is immense to say the least, and to have found such a treasure as Inspiration Avenue amongst the vastness of the internet is like finding the perfect home for the creative soul.

"Out of all the work you've done, what piece of your own creation inspires you the most and why?"

One of my most treasured digital creations is the Starry Nights Digital Collage. I have many passions and interests and my art always reflects them. But this particular piece is full of elements that inspire me each and every day - things that I carry with me in thoughts to always move me forward in my life's journeys. The endless sky of Stars reminds me that the Universe is full of lessons and gifts if I remain open to its teachings. The gates represent the entrance and exit in to each journey I will travel. The butterfly represents safe passage through my journeys on its graceful wings. And on the wings of the butterfly are steadfast reminders to me that there is always an Angel to watch over me while my feet are planted on the earth and my dreams are reaching for the moon and stars. May we all have safe passage through our life's journeys and always listen to our dreams and wishes because they are the whispers of our authentic selves.

If you find Inspiration in this particular Digital Art piece I created, I welcome you to download it and print it out for your own personal use. If it gives you a little smile and comfort when you look at it, then know that I am smiling with you and I am honored to share a little piece of my Inspiration with you!

Happy weekend to you all and don't forget to drop by Inspiration Avenue for the "5 Degrees of Inspiration" Blog Party and leave some love for the beautiful people behind it! xox♥

A Lovely Blog Award...

I'm always so very grateful to receive such lovely awards for my little place in Bloggieland. Thank you so much to Push the Button Alpha for thinking of me for this sweet treat.

You must, must go visit this beautiful person's Blog. I adore it - mostly because the writings there inspire me so. I love to be encouraged to be philosophical and to think outside the box and every time I visit there, I do just that. So to that I say a big Thank You - for the award - but especially for gracing your readers with such mind candy! xox♥

I haven't been here much lately... tomorrow I will share a little why - til then! xox

I'm back - refreshed and happy!...

I had such a lovely time away - just me and a dear friend for a few days. I missed my girls of course, but sometimes a gal needs a little time away for just herself♥

My summer plans include lots of time spent with my girls and hopefully another 'holiday' coming again soon - probably won't venture too far away - summer is wonderful though, isn't it?

Hope you all are able to make some wonderful summer holiday plans of your own. xox♥
