Pinterest Curated Images for International Women’s Day

Yesterday, I posted about Carrie Green’s phenomenal business book “She Means Business” (pure gold, get it now, run don’t walk, what are you waiting for?), which arrived on International Women’s Day. Then I got carried away waxing lyrical about the book and about Female Entrepreneurs in general, and that’s why this post is a day late.

But wait…my half of the world may be in a different day, but it’s still International Women’s Day in America. So yay, happy dance, I’m still on time!

I found these quotes on strong women and woman’s solidarity on Pinterest:

International Women’s Day + Carrie Green

Today is International Women’s Day. Today is also the day I received my copy of Carrie Green’s book “She Means Business”. It’s not just any business book. It’s a business book geared specifically towards women entrepreneurs. It’s Motivational, Inspirational and dare I say it, Fun. 

If you’re in the USA, use this link to to purchase your own copy of She Means Business: Turn Your Ideas into Reality and Become a Wildly Successful Entrepreneur:

The fact that my copy of this book, a book geared towards Female entrepreneurs, arrived today, of all days, on International Women’s Day, hasn’t escaped my notice. I’m of the view that there are no coincidences in Life, things happen for a reason and at just the right time. 

So I’m taking this as a sign that I NEED to read Carrie Green’s book very carefully, and pay close attention to the information, advice and exercises within it, and just BE DARING to put myself out there, to start my intented Crafts Business NOW instead of procrastinating. 

Go take a look at Carrie’s site for Female Entrepreneur Association, of which she is the founder, there’s a plethora of juicy extras and bonuses that can be had there. If you’re already in receipt of the book, don’t forget to leave a review on Amazon for a chance to win freebies. Here’s the link with information on how to claim your freebies:

To all my Sisters in The Universe, if you’ve been waiting for a Sign to help you kickstart your life, this is it! We are Women, hear us roar!

30 Days of Gratitude: #1 & #2

Ok, so I’m going to start a 30 day Gratitude exercise. And I’m using this graphic (see below) that I found on Pinterest. 

Let’s see what changes come about by the end of this exercise. If nothing else, it’ll be a cathartic exercise and help me focus on my intentions.

As it’s the 2nd of January, 2017, I’ll start with the first 2 today.

#1 What smell are you grateful for today?

– it’s got to be my new handwash – sweet orange and almond. 9 out of 10 of the homes of my petsitting/dogwalking clients seem to have this particular handwash in common, and I like the smell so much I bought a bottle of it myself for Christmas. A bonus? The brand name is “thankyou”, how apt is that? πŸ˜„

#2 What technology are you grateful for?

– the internet and WiFi. Without which I could not do half the things I want to, or explore the world from my armchair, or learn new skills; or meet new people, or admire artists and inspirational figures, etc. The internet is my window to the world at large. So yeah, I’m grateful to have ready access to it. 

New Year, New Life

Firstly, HAPPY NEW YEAR 2017 to everyone! I sincerely wish everything Good upon you all, may your innermost desires be manifested and all your wishes come true. 

2016 is finally over. What a year that was! A real sobering, eye-opening, tear-filled, death-strewn, emotional rollercoaster of a year. 366 days of ups and downs. Mostly downs, as global general concensus indicates. 

2016 is the year everyone wants to forget about. Sweep it under the carpet and never look at it again. Only The Universe knows why all those bad things happened and were allowed to happen. Scientists have not found the answer to the reason behind 2016’s apparent mass accummulation and dissemination of bad luck, death and destruction. 

I have an idea. Self-Fulfilling Prophecy By Mass Hysteria. No, seriously…I may be still a Novice at this Law of Attraction thing, but I’ve experienced for myself the Manifestation of things just by tuning in and concentrating on my thoughts.


Imagine if one person’s negative thoughts can bring about a bad situation. It stands to reason then that these vibes can also influence other people. We’ve all felt it before – entering a workplace when the Office Dragon is in, and the atmosphere is downright freezing. Or, conversely, going to a rock concert where you get caught up in the euphoric atmosphere and have the time of your life. 

Our vibes really do rub off on other people. Imagine the ramifications of this if not one but millions of people were feeling the same sense of insecurity or fear. Humans deal with situations in their own way – some withdraw, others act out, some take up extreme sports, some attend psychedelic festivals, but most go shopping. The Media Moguls control a lot of what’s going on inside our heads, giving us the illusion of Choice, telling us that we’re too fat, too poor, too ugly etc and that we must buy these products in order to feel better about ourselves. Or to vote for someone you don’t particularly think is a good candidate, but have you heard what the other side is proposing to do?

So there we are, vibing off each other in ever widening ripples, each one of us causing more ripples of our own and setting into motion events on a global scale. 

Think that’s too big of a leap of the imagination? Imagine then getting out of bed today, New Year’s Day 2017, with a massive hangover, feeling like death warmed up, wanting to kill the bloody neighbour’s yapping dog. You snap at your other half for being late making breakfast/brunch. You snarl at your children for getting under your feet, for making so much noise playing. You stub your toe in the shower and curse the day. You curse 2017. 

Whatever you believe becomes real. The Universe hears your thoughts and aligns itself accordingly to suit you. YOUR THOUGHTS CREATE YOUR REALITY. So now 2017 is going to be another annus horribilis for you, as you’re setting your own expectations, and The Universe is merely saying “Your wish is my command”.

And then you go out and spread your dis-ease to everyone who comes into contact with you. And pretty soon some gun-toting madman shows up a thousand miles away, or some dictator in a distant country decides to start a war or genocide, and it just goes downhill for everyone. And then we’ll all be wishing that 2017 was over already and could 2018 be THE Best Year, pretty please? 

We’ve all seen it happen in 2016. Let’s not repeat history, please.

2017 has just started. It’s a brand new year full of opportunities. It’s a blank slate upon which we’re to write our own personal future. Let’s welcome it in with open arms, open hearts and open minds. Let’s infuse 2017 with Love, Good Will, Hope, Kindness, Positivity. Let’s spread those juju vibes all around, do good deeds, speak kindly of others, help our fellow human beings, pay it forward again and again and again. 

Together, let’s make 2017 Our Best Year Yet. We CAN do this, folks! 

If you think this post of mine can help others, feel free to share away, make ripples on the pond! Let’s do this! πŸ–’

Here’s a FREEBIE to get you started! Take it, with my Love and Blessings! See, 2017 is already shaping up to be a GREAT YEAR! 

Christmas Cheer

2 Freebies for everyone today! Feel free to copy, paste, print, share!

Happy Christmas, Merry Xmas, Happy Holidays, whatever you wish it to be known as. What’s more important is that we treat each and every day of the year, and each and every person we meet, with the same Happiness and Utmost Respect that we would want to receive ourselves. Every day is a good day, why reserve it just for Christmas, when you, yes YOU, can make every single day one filled with Love, Laughter and Life! 

Let’s appreciate the people we have around us, our friends and chosen family, now while they’re still with us on this beautiful and bounteous Earth. It really doesn’t matter if we are not of the same race or creed, Goodness is in every one of us, and it is our duty to perform good deeds, think good thoughts, say positive things. If every one on Earth did just that, each and every day, with humility and compassion, Humankind would evolve into higher beings in no time at all, and there would be no more wars, religious prosecution, discrimination, poverty, hunger, homelessness.  

Your Thoughts create your Reality.


Law of Attraction Quotes

Just sharing with you some of my Pinterest curated quotes on how the Law of Attraction works. It’s working for me, and there’s no reason why it shouldn’t work for you too. Give it a try! 

Gratitude Word Art (Freebies again!!)

Just a few word art images I’ve created for you, my dear readers. Yes, feel free to take them and share them with your family and friends. I reckon they’d look good printed as cards or gift tags.

I love to surf Pinterest, it’s so full of interesting images that lead to exciting websites and blogs. Here are just some of the most recent ones I’ve found, that I’d like to share with you all.

Happy Halloween!

Just wishing you all a Happy Halloween, whatever the holiday means to you. It could be of religious significance to you, like the Mexican Dia de los Muertos, or it could just be an excuse to go Trick-or-Treating, or for having friends or relatives over for some quality time together. 

For me, it’s the celebration of the day my son Jack arrived on this Earth, 14 years ago. Happy Birthday, my not-so-little-anymore Jack-o-lantern! I’m so proud of what a great chap you’re turning out to be. ❀❀❀

Feel free to save and use the Halloween greeting card I’ve created, below. Send it to your friends, share it on your Pinterest board, print it out, etc. Enjoy!

Being broke but luckily still in posession of my old iPad 3, a simple factory setting reset later et voila! a “new” iPad for Jack to use in his new school and for his Art. That, and the 2016 Minecraft Annual magazine (better late than never lol), and Jack’s a happy bunny. 

Photos of Jack at his birthday dinner at the Hog’s Breath last night:

Freebies : Kantha close-ups

I’m gifting my 3rd Kantha scarf (see previous post) to a dear friend in Ireland. I won’t have the physical scarf anymore, but I did take a number of photos and close-ups of it hanging from my orange tree, for posterity, so I’ll always have the memory of that.

So here today I’m sharing these photos with you all, my dear readers. They are FREEBIES, meaning if you want to save them to your computers or mobile devices, use them as computer wallpaper, turn them into cards, use them as backgrounds for image editing, print them out for your own pleasure…you have my blessings. πŸ™‡

This girl can’t sew in a straight line, as you can see. But the wonky stitches and exposed knots sure add to the charm of it being all handmade, right πŸ˜„. Worthy of a Crafts stall or Etsy…
