Hula Hamster JOY

hula hamster xyThis precious handmade hamster, makes my heart sing.  She puts a smile in my heart just by sitting there smiling back at me.

hula hamster xThe last few days have been difficult for me.  I have found myself drifting into a state of “low drive and little interest ”   When I could I retreated to my bed,  the quiet of a darkened room and the desire to sleep.  My sleep mates were only too happy to crawl under cover and enjoy time out from the weather that was raging outside.

Today I had to go out, there were errands that needed doing, so after a lazy start to the day, I took myself off to do what needed doing.  When I arrived at the church I was surprised with JOY, the adorable Hula Hamster.  Oh what a gift.  I melted and was totally taken in by her charm.

Loving caring friendships are priceless.  JOY lifted me out of the shadows , back into the sunshine.  Olinda weaved a magic spell,   I am blown away. Thank you.  I am reminded that in life,  in a split second, the sun can break through the clouds, and all is right again.

Colour riot Saturday

October abstract 5

If you haven’t guessed already, I love October, and the energy that seems to gather and explode in the shops around this time of year. I can’t at this moment in time, over haul our living quarters into a stage set, but I can dream about it. So, some of my time today was wandering the shops and taking pictures of items I’d want to collect and bring home, if this was the right time for me to do so.

October 2

How fun to have this at the back door to greet unsuspecting visitors.

October 3

Could it be the colours, the designs, or just the witching fun.

october 6a

Back when I was  really keen on redoing the “home” with such colourful and creative items, we had to make them ourselves.  Now, they are all over in the shops and so available.  I love the black, the way it sets off the bright yellows and glowing oranges.

I have been feeling more creative these days, the top picture is my bedtime activity, some people write in journals, I like to paint.  I have art journals, and junk journals, they are everywhere, so when I feel an urge, I can just pick one up and add to it.  Even the act of preparing a page so that it will take paint, or other medium is joyful.

Ripping up a magazine for the splotches of colour that have caught my eye is very relaxing…. then to see it reborn in a totally “MY ” way  is absolutely satisfying.  Same applies to fabric, wool, threads, cord, ribbon, tapes, the possibilities are endless.

The best part of visual expression, is that it is very personal, subjective, and really only needs to be enjoyed by me, myself and I.  If someone else likes it, that is bonus.

Life is what we make it.  There is an artist in all of us. We all choose to express ourselves differently. What is important is that we do so.

When a challenge looms before us.  How we deal with it, shows are creativity.  We are offered so many possibilities during the day, I am always amazed that not every one gets the  feeling of satisfaction at having a full day.

If you are in Canada, you are well on your way to enjoying a long week-end.  I am looking forward to mine.  It is a daunting task, but I am going to try to rearrange my studio/work area.

Happy, wonderful and productive Saturday !!  Let the colours shine.

 

bloomer painting

bloomers painted on Pepsi

Pepsi needed a skirt, shorts, or jeans, I couldn’t find anything suitable, so we painted a pair of bloomers for her.  I think that she looks pretty “neat”.  Next I will dig up a pair of shoes for her feet.

Life is Art  (Precept #1)

PL Precept #2  To live is to express One’s self.

This was fun.  How was your day?  Have a good start to a new week.

Chop Suey Monday Aug. 14

logo, old

Good afternoon, thought since I’m doing a bit of this and that, I would share with you my logo from years gone by.  It was a phase in my life when I was doing silver jewelry, combined with healing semi and precious stones.

I came across an older piece of marketing I had done.. back then.  I no longer do “TalisMoons” but I do still believe in the energy we keep on or around us.  You all know that my husband and I are on a journey .. with my husband’s “illness” has come the need to really asses and look at our lives.  The changes that will be required etc.

This morning I had to take our precious “senior” dog child” to the vet, she is now with the angels and no longer suffering or tied to this mortal dimension of life.  Another difficult emotional challenge, an opportunity to thank God for the blessings she brought into our lives.  She gave me so much… through her I knew unconditional love  which helped me to be a better person.

The following is part of what I had written many “moons” ago.

DyMoon is  Love unbounded, cosmic and universal –

Transcends ALL mortal boundaries and ALL that is known

DyMoon –  – is timeless and eternal

Each Dymoon TalisMoon is created with magical thought that rests on a belief in ONENESS with the Universe.  They only have POSITIVE value for their owner and are ver personalized in the giving and wearing.

Follow your heart

along the feeling path

ignite inner flames with just a glance

welcome today with glass raised high

salute tomorrow with joy of mind

travel through fantasy and life

capture the spirit of imagination

ride the winds of time

enjoy an original “dyMoon”

Over the years, people just began calling me dyMoon, and to this day I am dyMoon.  Reading what I wrote all those many years ago.  I am still a moon maiden, still believe in the ONENESS of the Universe, and LOVE.

Yes I shed tears this morning, but they were of love, I will always cherish my Canaille and the many joys she brought into my life.  It is never goodbye, It is always, till soon.

Best start of the week to you all.  I love and feel blessed that you are part of my life.

Q  aka DyMoon.

for those who do not know. DyMoon is an anglo version of my Chinese names.

Anticipation

as the days grow warmer the anticipation grows

soon, not only will we celebrate a new day

the new buds of spring will come alive

and the art of the bloom

will bless and bring colour

to skies that have been winter gray

Bees will actively tend their hives

and our toes will be free again

=^_^=

YAY !!!

Wordless Wednesday =sunshine yellows and….

and lovely bright yellow bracts

reaching for the skies 

the magnolia tree is preparing to shine

in a day or two

these delicate  fuchsia buds will open

the deep defined leaves of the ivy 

have started their climb

soon the buddha will be covered

not smothered,

but dressed in a living cloak or vest

next to the corkscrew hazel

this Amur maple has

started to protest the long winter

and is showing her strong desire

to break free and thrive again

DSC00377

all around

new growth abounds

the ground has come alive

and so my dears, have I

for like the seasons

each day is a new beginning

as the bees stir and begin their quests

the delicious dandelions

awaits their visit

Yay another day has begun

Happy Wednesday everyone!
