The Fox And The Child Trailer - from Pathe in Spring 2008

This trailer just makes my heart skip a beat and open up to the possibilities of such beauty and magic. I can hardly wait for it to come out...Enjoy!

Artfully Yours,



Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart.
Try to love the questions themselves
Like locked rooms and like books
That are written in a very foreign language.
Do not now seek the answers,
Which cannot be given you
Because you would not be able to live them.
Live the Question now.
Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it,
Live along some distant day into the Answer."
~Rainer Maria Rilke~

Sometimes a quote just comes your way EXACTLY when you need it!! This was the one that showed up for me today....
Artfully Yours,

PS: Did you get one?

Another tag has my name on it...from Zura...
This is how you play...

Moonshadow at KSBorn tagged me for this meme. Here are the instructions:

Step one is to take the first book you lay eyes on that fits the rules. Not your favorite book, but the closest at hand:

The rules are as follows…
1. The book must be over 123 pages.
2. Find page 123 in the book.
3. Find the first 5 sentences.
4. Post the next 3 sentences.
5. Tag 3 other people

So, the first book I saw was “Life, Paint and Passion” Page 123 only has a couple of sentences, so here they are….

“When you encounter a block, look inside for a rule to break! Remember: It’s not the painting that’s important, it’s you. Once the painting is finished, it’s just a piece of paper with paint on it - and there will be hundreds more! ”

"I am so grateful that I can give myself permission to have fun. And So I will! God is happy when I am happy." (One Day My Soul Just Opened Up...Iyanla VanZant)

Happy Saint Valentine Day...

Happy Saint Valentine Day to all who enter here today! Wishing you heartfelt blessings from me to you... I received my monthly newsletter from Jill today, and if you haven't had the opportunity to sign up for her newsletter, do your self a favor and sign up today! She always has fun little things to get your brain creatively thinking...Here are a few she offered and I will share what I did....
Make an acronym out of the word HEART...
and then there was the series of words ....
adjust,fascinating, implore, finally, red bow, running water, mingle, figure, door, stop, ramble, story, hear no, after, fringe, red, fence, order

After standing at the fence for a long time, she decided to adjust her red heart and hear what her spirit was saying. She finally would open the door to the story. She would ramble on trying to keep it all in order. She would implore her mind to figure out and remember the fascinating moments. There were many fringe benefits to doing this she thought as she mingled her past and her present together. Finally she had to stop and turn off the running water and replace it. There would be no more tears. For she had replaced them with a red bow of love.

One World Give Away...

What IS ONE World-ONE Heart?

It is a blog-wide giveaway event. The original idea behind this was to bring bloggers together from around the world who may never ordinarily meet. It closes the gap of the blog community and enables us to interact, discover new and wonderful people, and in the process possibly win a prize or many prizes along the way. Last years event had nearly 100 participants and many connections were made because of it......friendships that are still going strong. Visit HERE for all the links of all the bloggers involved...Or better yet, GET INVOLVED TOO! Your hostess for this event: Lisa Oceandreamer of Heart of the Nest and Imagination Cafe.

I have been prompted by my heart to join in this event... So leave a comment for me and I will add your name for the drawing on the 14th of February.... This is an altered 5 by 7 canvas, done with raw art. The words Believe..dream..and wish are on this piece. GOOD LUCK!!

Another 7 weird things about me...

Karen tagged me for the meme 7 weird things...I think this is the 3rd time I have done this one...and I am wondering if I am running out of weird things!! LOL... Here we go..
1. I like scrambled eggs with spaghetti sauce poured over them...but only home made sauce as I will not eat jarred spaghetti sauce.
2. I do not wear nail polish on my fingers because no sooner is it on when I start to peel it off...It feels funny to me...
3. I am most creative when my studio is a mess!! LOL
4. I love silly songs and tend to make them up..(I call them "squirrel songs" ...I think you can get that one!)
5. I tend to be very shy...go figure...and I bet you wouldn't even think that of me!!
6. I only like white cake with white frosting..not yellow cake, not choclate cake..
7. I can fall asleep almost anywhere...and have been known to do it at parties....

Artfully Yours,
