invite happiness

P1000729 (1)

Appreciate all of what life offers.  When we find beauty in all we encounter, we will be rewarded.

“PL calendar day 14  Be a Person who invites Happiness

Live your life with good timing and respond quickly to whatever appears in front of you.  By doing so, things will keep getting better and better.”

Change is a constant in life. Learn to accept changes in your life, when we flow with the Universe, life is easier, and our state of mind, more balanced.




zen tangle mini 3.4.18When we begin, there is only one line, by the time we have done, we are looking at what these  days is called a Zentangle.

I take my time, and use no end in mind, nor do I try to contemplate design, or a theme.  It is relaxation for me, so I simply allow myself to doodle.

zen tangle mini 3.6.18

Last night I began to colour in the various spaces.  Leaning towards greens, I  don’t try for perfection, and I don’t really try to stay within the lines.  I will be interested in seeing IF I finish this “expression”, or will I let it lie on my desk, forgotten, waiting for me to “catch” the “mood” again. If and when it is finished, will it look anything like it started out.  That is the beauty of these doodles. They allow, the mind to wander, and the hands to stray.

Mid week already.  Hope you have all had a good start to the week, and that today, will be a “stunner”  I challenged myself to do something creative every day.  Sunday I tried my hand at Origami

origami 3.4.18Hey, they aren’t perfect, but trying to learn something new and doing something creative every day, for me is relaxing, and by jim-minie  I can do with the R & R

Blessings everyone! Let your light shine through in all you do!



dolls – thrift finds

img_0245.jpgI found a YouTube video the other day that showed how to shrink a doll’s head.  It is amazing what one finds on YouTube.  Although I had heard about custom dolls, and I saw finished products on eBay and the like, this was my first “how to” video on how to shrink the dolls head.  How doll artist were taking thrift store finds and recreating them into super models, fashion models, fantasy characters.


This got me thinking. I knew I had or could have some interesting dolls to play with should I want to try this technique.  However, to shrink a head, I would need a doll with a wider face.

The other information I got was on how to take off all the make up that was  factory applied.  That meant I could redo their faces into any other kind of face that appealed to me when I started to reconstruct the doll.  These artist not only redo the face, they change the whole makeup from head to toe.

The doll on the far left will be a good candidate because her leg is broken at the knee.  She needs a new leg, someone had tried unsuccessfully to perhaps undress her and snapped her knee at the ball joint, it is ruined, unless I can dig out the broken stem.  If I replace the leg and totally repaint her, the different skin tones won’t matter.


The Monster High Dolls, I love their faces,  so doubt I would play around with them, I have a collection of these little ladies that are just waiting for me to get to them to clean them up.

The two dolls on the end of the middle picture, I don’t know them, when you move their bent arm, they talk.  Actually the three of them, are not of too much interest to me, only the one I want to “change”.  Sometimes it is not till you get them home and have a good look them, that attraction either holds or it doesn’t.

Isn’t that what life is like too.  We think we want something, and we go in search of, and find what we think we want, only to discover when we have had time to be with the “object” or in the situation we thought we would enjoy… that we go.. “What!!!”

Time is a factor in all of this.. In 24 hours your mind can go through many warren holes and different doors.  Seen and taken in, sights and sounds, it hadn’t known when your first impulse came .. or an idea formed.

On the other hand, when you act on the spur of the moment, you can find that ..  “wow, that was a wasted effort”  That is what makes life so interesting, it can be so unpredictable, and if you say.. ” life is the same, day in and day out”  then my friend, you need a new viewer.

The only constant in life is change.  Think carefully, you are not the same person, from one day to the other.  The change might be miniscule, but change there is.



From me to you… have a great day.. be kind to one another, share a smile, say hello!

sleepless in

piglet bedtime Thursday 22I want to cheerfully say…

Good Morning everyone… however, having been awoken to activity, and then have 2 full-grown whippets try to snuggle down with me.. ((((who let me add, wanted their breakfast))))  shall we just say, “happy Saturday” and get up to meet the day.

I know you have met little Piglet, but I have been working on texture, I think that you are able to glimpse it. What you can’t see is Piglet’s nose is shiny, with a wet look.  I’d love to know what is at the bottom of the cup, she seems so pleased with herself.  From the smudges on her face, ?? anyway, she seems happy.  That is all we can ask for isn’t it. A happy Piglet.

In life there are circumstances we can control, and other’s we can’t.  A wise person once said, “know when to pick your battles”

Today’s PL Calendar page reads,   “Listen” and “See” With Careful Attention and Accept Each Other.

“Focus your “eyes” and “ears” towards the expression of others without any preconceived notions.  Then you will be able to see their true intentions.”
