Please note that instead of reinventing the wheel, I’ve made some changes to an earlier post announcing the open registration for the “Bloom True” e-course. Another class begins October 13, 2014, and if you have any interest in painting or learning to paint, I cannot urge you strongly enough to take this class. After reading this post, check out the link to an earlier post wherein I reviewed the course more indepth.

Have you ever thought of being an artist and expressing or discovering your creativity? How about learning to paint? I did. In 2012, I decided to stop procrastinating, and signed up for my first drawing and painting e-courses. Doing so was a huge step on my journey, and has become a dream come true, and a burgeoning passion. I discussed it in-depth in this earlier post. In that post, I also reviewed one painting course in particular, Flora Bowley’s e-course “Bloom True.” I am here to tell you that the course was both life-changing and a blessing for me.

I am excited to tell you that her next “Bloom True” e-course begins October 13, 2014. Registration is ongoing and the class fills up quickly, so if you are interested in taking the course and losing yourself in color and meeting your true self, click on the “Bloom True” badge on the lower right sidebar of my blog page. Click on the link and it will take you directly to the course page where you can get additional information, register, and prepare for an incredible experience. I promise that it will be one of the best gifts that you’ve ever given yourself. You will not regret it. In fact, I am seriously considering re-taking the course. The experience was just that powerful.

The course is equally relevant for those with all levels of experience; so even if you’ve never picked up a paint brush, are an established artist, or are well on your way to becoming one, the class is for you! Just do it for yourself. It’s worth it.

Pink skies, luck & Summer time

Pink skies, luck & Summer time
I’ve realized that it has been much too long since I created one of my Polyvore digital collages, bad, bad Lydia. If you are new to Polyvore, you can read about it in this post. Anyway, I had a little down time today and headed to Polyvore to create something worthy of my amazing readership. This collages reminds me of Summer time filled with carnivals, beautiful sunsets, hand fans to stave away the heat, butterflies, delectable ice cream cones, the proper hat and more. I hope that it evokes in you, your own version of Summer time filled with the things that you cherish and love about the season. Happy Summer! Go out there and live it!

Golden Contrast

Golden Contrast, by LKW created on Polyvore 5.2.14

Happy Friday. I am feeling under the weather so I decided to play around with Polyvore and to create a collage. I love creating these collages as it helps me learn color combinations for my mixed media work.

Anyway, you may be wondering about the significance of the numbers 4 and 5. I included them in the collage because they keep cropping up everywhere. Now, this may sound woo-woo to some, but having been born and bred Catholic, I believe in angels and in their presence among us, so I ask that you indulge me.

In the book “Angel Numbers” by Doreen Virtue, she lists the various meaning of each number from 00-999. She attributes the following meaning to each number. Number 4 means “Angels are with you. Call upon them for help, guidance, and feelings of love and security.” The number 5 means “This number relates to change, transformation, transmutation, and alchemy. Something in your life is changing, or about to change, for the better.” Now whether you believe in them or not, I find the thought comforting that there are beings waiting in the wings (no pun intended) to guide me as I travel this journey called life. Yet, I have enormous repeat for those who do not share my beliefs, because that is what makes life interesting–the amazing differences between us. Now, go out there and have a stupendous weekend!
