Here is my little Peppermint Christmas Fairy all inked and ready to be colored. I think she is going to be a really cute peice. I'm going to color her in lots of different reds, pinks and greens. I'm sure alot of other colors will be added (cant help myself, I'm a color junkie!)
Hope you like her. You have all motivated me to get crackin! So thank you for that!
In honor of my "Peace Fairy" being sold on my etsy shop today (thank you!) I decided to post her and to write about how much peace is so important in my life.
I have been on a mission over the last few years to find more peace and harmony in my life. Inner peace is so important to me. I am not a drama queen, in fact I cant live with drama, I am the exact opposite.
I not only wish peace for myself but for everyone else. I wish you all much peace and would like you to share some peace today with someone, either thru your blog postings or just walking down the street. A smile, a kind word or just feeling peace and love in your heart today would be wonderful. What if we all did that today, the sun would shine a little extra bright! :)
As I was walking to my car in the mall parking lot tonight I saw two little girls just jumping up and down with such joy I thought to myself, "That's me!" I do that all the time! That is so me, and thank god!
I have always had and always will have a childlike spirit and I intend to keep it that way. I find bliss in the littlest things and I just hope that in some little way I pass it on to you thru my art. That is why I am posting "Tutti-Frutti" today because she is so fun and playful.
Here's hoping that you get a little happiness from her and I hope you get to jump up and down and clap today! Try it, its really fun! :)
Carpe Diem. (Seize the Day) Last night I was watching the movie, "Roxanne" with Steve Martin and Darryl Hannah (a really cute one!) and Steve's character mentioned these words.
How often do we actually do that? How often do we wake up and live this day as it was our last? I try to get out of bed everyday with enthusiasm and usually do because I get to work on my art everyday and that immediately gets me in a great mood. But this morning I thought, what could I do today that would make it special? What do I keep putting off that I need to do? How can I make this day one that I take hold of and at the end of the day say that I truly lived!
I immediately made a list and thought that I have so been putting off submitting my work to licensing companies so I found 2 online today that I am going to submit to right when I finish this post!
As I was out walking dogs today, I smiled at everyone I met and said hello. I kissed every one of my little doggies and told them that I loved them and thanked them for being good kids today!
On my walks today I said thank you for all that I have in my life, my lovely mother, my brothers, my good friends, my art, my peppermint mocha coffee, my food, my strong legs that took me on my walks and to the gym today and all of the wonderful people who comment on my blog everyday. I am grateful for all of you!
I am going to have fun making a collage tonight that I have been putting off for months! And of course, I will be working on Peppermint fairy and going to bed a happy and inspired little girl! :)
I am an artist who believes that the world can always use more kindness, innocence, color, inspiration and of course, more enchantment!
I am deeply passionate about my art and inspiring the world by sharing love and joy thru my art and my words. I hope my art has enchanted your life a little bit more and I would love it if you became a blog follower! Thank you for visiting my enchanted and whimsical world!
