Want Peace?

Dove Photo compliments of Microsoft Clipart

Surely at one time or another we have all heard or said, "I wish (or Pray) for world peace."

Wishing or praying for it is great but we can't just simply wish or pray for it! We have to create it!

It all starts with just one person! One person doing a kind thing for another.

Our soul purpose on this earth is to help each other and in return we create happiness and ease suffering.

Can you just imagine this world being peaceful and a happy place to be?

I know I can!

Ever wondered what your purpose on this earth was? Well, now you know!

Maybe today your day is just not going well. You can make it better! Each day we are given we have a choice to be happy or the opposite...sad. It is totally up to you!

Yes! Really!

So, start by saying, "Today, I am going to be happy!" and then spread happiness to others!

I have been doing this for the last week and let me tell you...It works!

I feel no stress, even though I am broke and not knowing how I will get through the month. I let it all go! I am not going to worry about it, I am not about to let it stress me out. Money is one of our biggest stressors. Let it go! Whatever it may be for you...let it go!

Let the things that are bothering you just shed away. Let them fall away from you. Let the chips fall where they may and deal with them as they come to you. If you are in a happy place and not stressed out, these dealings will come easier and you'll be able to deal with them head on without wanting to pull your hair out! ;O) *wink*

Now, what is one nice thing that you can do for someone else today and not expect anything in return? Smile at someone! Offer to share a meal with someone homeless. Even if it's just Mickey D's! Help some one who dropped their things on the ground! Make a dinner for your immediate family...light candles, get out those nice dishes and glassware! Lend an ear to someone who just wants to let it out! Offer a shoulder for someone to cry on! The list goes on and on!

There is one person out there that has it way worse than you right now, a person sitting next to you may be suffering something and you have no clue. Every one suffers from something. Making someones day will definately lighten their day as well as yours!

Now go! Start creating peace!

Much love, hugs & blessings,

New Pages and A Muse

Borders-mostly scrap bits leftover from collage sheets.

Body- Horns-Scrap from leftover sheet from Teesha Moore.
Shirt-One Eyed Monsters Kit from Crowabout StudioB at DeviantScrap
Feet- ( I forgot LOL)

Fish-Personal Stash

Hi there! So many new and exciting thing happening at Crowabout StudioB! Some of which I can share with you now and for you to keep an eyes open for NEW fun things in upcoming posts!

I can hardly stand the anticipation! It will be something really good!!! But for now I can only tease and taunt! hee hee

This weekend, I said to myself, "I really need to just do some art for me." SO I did! I finally got around to joining Roc's 2011 Journal Prompt group on Flickr HERE ! Sorry it took me so long Roc! My life has gotten pretty busy over the months! These art journal pages were much needed to be done!

They were done in a smaller art journal that I made from plain file folders. Well, it's not actually a put together art journal just yet. I plan work all the loose pages and then bind them all when they are finished. Something I haven't done before now. Usually I have an art journal ready made for play.

The first art journal page (above) was created with this prompt in mind: "what is one important thing you've learned in your life so far?" I chose Resolve and added a quote to go along with it.

Most everything from my 'leftovers/scrap bin (teesha moore, anahata, magazine tid bits, personal stash etc etc etc.

As to catch up in the group, I am working backwards through the months journal prompts.

This one was for Sept. 2011 and the prompt given was: "what quote moves you in your everyday life?"

A favorite quote of mine...

"Remember, all the answers you need are inside of you; you only have to become quiet enough to hear them." ~ Debbie Ford
Almost forgot to share about the wonderful and newest edition of the October Muse! So much yum to be found in this edition! Go check it out and grab one up for yourself! It's totally free for the taking! You deserve a treat! Find it HERE !!

Thank you for stopping by!

OMG! Today I called myself a............

Goddess! Really? Yup! Not the Goddess of worshiping type. But in the sense of "it's ok to give to myself freely and be a little selfish without the whole "guilt trip" aspect" kind of thing. What I mean is that, it is OK to give to yourself, a little treat that makes my day that much brighter and easier going and not concentrate on the negitivty of being selfish. And the sense of being open, passionate and you and your spirit radiating light!

This is from
ra·di·ate   /v. ˈreɪdiˌeɪt; adj. ˈreɪdiɪt, -ˌeɪt/ Show Spelled [v. rey-dee-eyt; adj. rey-dee-it, -eyt] Show IPA verb, -at·ed, -at·ing, adjective

2. to emit rays, as of light or heat; irradiate.
3. to issue or proceed in rays.
4. (of persons) to project or glow with cheerfulness, joy, etc.: She simply radiates with good humor.

youIt's ok, YOU give a little treat to yourself. Whether it be a relaxing bubble bath or take a little nap! Just because! This is what I mean about being selfish. People around you will notice a change in you and in return their world feels a bit more easy going and happy!

If you haven't already guessed or maybe you have...I have treated myself to

WOW! I can feel the transformation building within myself, my spirit and self-esteem as well as in my heart! It's an evolution baby! YAH!

ev·o·lu·tion   /ˌɛvəˈluʃən or, especially Brit., ˌivə-/ Show Spelled[ev-uh-loo-shuhn or, especially Brit., ee-vuh-] Show IPA

Oh ya! That's what I'm talking about!

There are so many inspirational speakers at this event...totally free! Some of the speakers grabbed my attention more than others!

I am really excited about all this! And wanted to share my experiences so far with The Worlds Biggest Summit all brought about by the lovely and enchanting Goddess Leona Dawson - A beautiful spirit she is, inside and out! THANK YOU FOR YOU LEONA and all you are doing to share this gift with the world! I actually have that excited feeling know the kind when you get good news! Ya that one! And good goosey bump thing going on!

I am alive! I can feel it! Sure I am breathing....but there is so much more to being alive and actually FEEL it in you! WOW! I love this feeling! Keep it coming!!

Today, I went outside to sit in my chair on my extremely small porch...if that is what you want to call it...but it is my space of solitude. And for the first time I felt the world around me! The birds seemed to be singing so much louder and clearer than ever! My sense of smell was enhanced! The sights were brighter, sky was bluer, the trees were that much more beautiful! The sun was shining that much brighter! My senses are alive too! It's great! A great feeling to know I am alive and with passion and wanting to give back to the world!

So, treat yourself and join The Worlds Biggest Summit! You won't be sorry! Some of the speakers will maybe not catch you...but some will speak to you in volumes!!!

Again..taken from
speak volumes,
a. to be very evident or significant: Her testimony spoke volumes.
b. to be expressive or meaningful: Your eyes speak volumes.

I hope you join in, in this event and feel what I am feeling right now!! Hope you will come back and share your thoughts and feelings with me!

Love and Hugs,
