For those of you who don't know me, I have STICK STRAIGHT hair! I mean, I will NEVER need a hot iron to straighten my hair. I literally blow it dry and it is straight for good! I have had on my list to buy a quality curling iron for months, and today I FINALLY took time to make the purchase! 5 minutes...and voila--big, beautiful, luscious curls!
Each day I take care to treat my mind, body and soul with care so that I shine from the inside...but sometimes you just have to make it happen on the outside!!!
As Mary J. Blige would say..."Work what you've got!"
And as Mary Beth would say, "Let your light shine"

Affirmations about love....inspired by my friend Molly, one of the most loving people I know. The proof shines through in the face of her little one.
Whenever I'm in doubt, I remember love.
I look with eyes of loving kindness upon my world.
My loving words comfort and soothe and create peace.
I allow tender, loving feelings, tempered with wisdom, to guide my actions.
I can trust love to handle all challenges.
I notice and acknowledge the loving actions of others and feel gratitude.
I find creative ways to express the love that I am.
Love draws me to every desire of my heart.
The aura of love that surrounds me keeps me in perfect health.
Love is the greatest power in the world and nothing can defeat it.
I choose to love without conditions. I love everyone all the time.
I love myself enough to be good to me...every day!!!

The Peace of the Wild Things
When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children's live may be
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds,
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
The miracle is not to walk on
water. The miracle is to walk
on the green earth in the
present moment, to appreciate
the peace and beauty that
are available now. There is
no enlightenment outside of
--Thich Nhat Hanh

The Spirit within me makes all things new.
Every negative thought or condition is erased from my experience.
I am aware of my union with Good.
I am conscious of my oneness with Life
I expect more prosperity, more happiness, more harmony than ever before.
I walk in the joy of ever-increasing good.
--Ernest Holmes, "This Thing Called You"
In December I decided to start my own design studio and show at Surtex in May! I wasn't sure how to pull this all together in five months, but Wow! The months have flown by and somehow it is all coming together. Pink Light Design will be showing approx. 700 pieces of artwork at Surtex this year. We have 4 artists working on new pieces and lots of great supporters! Thank goodness for wonderful friends, family, and understanding children! Things are coming along amazingly and I am excited for a wonderful and fun learning experience!
I have started this blog with the intention of sending positive quotes, sayings, words of the day, and any type of inspiration to those who would like to find little gifts in their mailbox. I hope to attach an image to the inspirational text and I hope to bring a smile to your face and peace to your heart. Here's to peace, love, abundance, and a successful show!!!
Thank you to all who have supported me! There will be a gratitude party. It will be so fun!
