Manifesting My Life!

This week has brought about some really eye opening thoughts and feelings for me. I apologize for being away, I needed this time to get myself together. So much has happened to me in my life, and much of it wasn’t good. To be fair, this is not about bad situations, it is about rising above them, climbing past the, and finding myself in a world of dreams and happiness! It has been difficult at times to stay in a positive place, and I haven’y always succeeded, but I do persevere. This has been one of those times in my life. Slowly though, like some turning my head gently to the side, so I can see clearly, I begin to see my future.

Today, I woke up realizing, that all will be well, and all will be better than I can even imagine. Once again, I am refocusing on all my dreams. Slowly things have begun to change. I wanted a new car, I am getting it very soon, in the next day or so., It isn’t some show room new car, it is new to me and the beginning of a newer car to come. I wanted a break from work, a mini vacation, and got it by ending up in an E.R. My boss got mad that I needed a couple of days to re cooperate, and took me off the schedule for a week. Not the way I imagined it, lol, but arrived non the less. So now I am working on bringing money my way, and the wish should arrive soon! Maybe in the form of a big lottery check! That would be great!

All and all, life is in a good place, so many changes on the way, and in my heart I know they will all be good ones. My dreams manifesting themselves into my reality. This is what I dream for and wake for everyday. The potential, to bring magic into my life, and experience everything I always wanted. I smile at the thought of my new cars, new homes, vacations, travel, art galleries, art studios, and all the things I can do to give back. I want to help children with illness, use my art to cheer them and sell my art to heal them! I want to spend my money and time to help clean up the planet, especially for the oceans and all the sea life, that is depending on us to survive! I fill myself with these thoughts for the day, and wish for the ability to do it all and more!

So, as of yet, my lottery check is not here. But, I am sure it is on it’s way to me, now even as I type this. I know that all the worries I have are silly and a waste of time. he time serves me better, by realizing it is only in this minute, that things seem of course, that tomorrow or the next minute all will be at peace again. I have to believe it, wish it, envision it, taste it and feel it! Once I do, it is already here! Wishing you all the best for this holiday season and even more now at the end of this year, and the brink of a new year. The year of plenty, and the year of all possibilities, that is what I am claiming for me! So, whether I am working or not, whether I am at home or not. On this new year I am making a wish for m=not one or even two, I am wishing for all my dreams to come true, I also send that same wish for you and anyone else that needs it.

Sending my love to you and yours, as always, diana

Spectacular Saturday!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on March 12, 2011 by dianaswonderworks

Well, the weekend is with us. My special delivery arrived as hoped. She came on Friday around lunchtime, and we have been busy visiting each other and meeting the new boyfriend. She looks as beautiful as ever, we got some paintings together she wanted, and got frames switched out yesterday. Now she is busy measuring the dresser she wanted to take home with her. I am so very happy to see her, and realize even more how much I miss my girls.

Funny thing today, we drove into Knoxville, on the way a funny thing happened. It was like I could breath again, the fresh air and the sunny sky, taunted my brain. It seemed to get in there and whisk away all the cobwebs. Suddenly as my mind cleared, a stranger thing happened, it felt like stone was falling off my body. Wings broke free from my back one and all of a sudden I felt like I could fly! Not in a crazy, get my meds way, but like this was the beginning of a new opportunity to fly. It wasn’t like I thought it, I felt like I could fly, in every way possible. All the things that seemed to hold me here, started to fall off of me, and I found myself saying goodbye to a town I love. A town I will miss, but a town that is now part of a different me. The new me is so ready to burst out, and venture out into a big huge world and see what adventures await me there!

She is finding things I forgot I had, a baby book, from her. She needs to take that too! So much is hers for the asking, and I hope she cherishes every bit of it. She now has a collection of paintings, I need to remove from my shops. There are also several things from the kitchen and crocheted projects that she has claimed. It is a pleasing sight to see her so excited about these things.

No big news on the lottery. I haven’t had a chance to watch American Idol yet this week, still on DVR. I noticed the tabloids have out all kinds of stuff on The Bachelor, apparently he is engaged to Emily. I will still enjoy seeing it all play out, I was thinking from the beginning, that she would be his choice. He was extremely attentive to her. That is usually a good sign.

Took pictures of the newest paintings, finally got them frames, so here they are! Hope you like them, one is for my girl, the one that is all broken up in pieces. I will add them this week to my shops online. I really think the next painting I do will be a fun Giraffe, I may even start it today! Everyone here seems so mellow and quiet, I might be able to play with my paints while they are here. So, off  of here I go, got some cooking to do, and then I think some painting. Have a wonderful Saturday, sending out my love to you as always, diana

Whatever The Weather We Will Be Together!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on March 10, 2011 by dianaswonderworks

Today is D-day for me! My daughter is going to come and visit me, I am so beyond excited! So much to do. I dropped off some art at the frame shop. It will be ready later today! I cannot wait, plus that means all I have to do is take some pictures and them new stuff to show you and new stuff for the store! Hooray! The weather outside is frightful (bet you’ve heard that before), but as long as she is careful, I will be seeing her nice and early in the morning. I just can’t wait!

Got the bills paid, not much left to save for the move, but hoping that will all change soon. New roomie moving in next week and yard sales on the horizon. Save, save, save! Lots to do before the big move. Would love to trade some art for a better running car, not so thrilled about taking her up there, she is not very young and I think she is tired. Going uphill takes the wind out of her sails! Since, I am not moving to the plains (more hill country), this could be rough on her. So, I keep wishing and praying that something will break loose. Winning the lottery could really hep! I am still waiting. News is the check is in the mail. Seeing as it is God promising, who do you complain to, when there are delays! Big smile for all of you who just freaked a little, I am a silly girl and will remain so. He knows I am joking around, not about receiving the money I am not, just the part about the check being in the mail. It will arrive at the best time possible, for sure!

Picked up my numbers for the weekend, ready to win. It would be so wonderful to have the money to spend with my daughter here! I am happy no matter what, it has been a while since I have been able to spoil my girls, and I look forward to that day again, plus spoiling my grand-babies! I am definitely keeping my fingers crossed! You do the same!

Quick note, I have a couple of friends, whose husbands a really ill right now. Would love it, if you could send some love and good wishes their way. I know they would appreciate it too! Both are wonderful women, and their husbands are really great guys. It seems age and illness are getting the better of both of them. It would be really nice if they could stick around a while longer.

So the weather man is apparently calling for rain (so I hear, need to watch the forecast to be sure). I am hoping whatever may come is gentle, so my sweetheart can make it safely to my door. On the other hand, I do know she would be thrilled to see snow again. Keeping my fingers crossed for the best of both scenarios. No matter what seeing the smile on her face, is all I dream of! In no time at all, it will be the reunion with my other daughter, that makes it a winning year, full of love and life and beauty! Can’t beat that with a stick! Hoping you are having a lovely day, sending joy and love to you as always, diana

What Do March Showers Bring?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on March 9, 2011 by dianaswonderworks

The old poem goes “April showers, bring May flowers”,  just wondering what they thought of March showers. Are they just a precursor to April showers? My silly thought since I got up this morning is that silly poem, and reminding myself it isn’t April yet so it does not apply. I love spring, it is all about new beginnings for me, and one of the most restless times of the year for me. It seems no matter what year, in the spring there are always changes and deliberate one for sure. It is worse than cabin fever, it is a driving need to do something new, even if it is a hair cut, color, clothes, to a move, career change, just something.

This year seems promising, a major move, new job, and hopefully new career in art too. It is very exciting, and almost more than my brain can handle all at once, but I did say almost. It will be a wonderful new year for me, of that I am sure. Grabbing something new in the spring feels like a renewal, like a start over button, every year I feel this intense need to fix anything that seemed to not fill it’s greater purpose the year before. I do not believe in stagnating, and every spring I can look at my life and see what has not been working since the last spring. Out with the old, in with the new seems to be a good statement for me in the springtime. If it hasn’t improved my life in a year, than what are the odds it will the next. One year is a pretty good marker on how well something is working for you. If even slight improvements are noticed, that deserves another year, but stagnating or sliding backwards is not part of my plan.

Okay, so next, no word on a big lottery win for me. However, to any one who did win some or a lot of money, just a quick “YAY!”. I am very happy for you, good luck next time to all of you who did not win, hoping your minute is coming as well!

As far as work goes working on a painting for my youngest, she will be arriving in less than 48 hours, so I have lots to do, just to get ready for her visit. Today, is all about finishing projects for her. I am very excited! Getting ready to make some banana bread today too, and made some chicken and dumplings last night. so, she will eat well when she is here, she is also requesting eggs in a window (some call then eggs in a basket). Stay safe sweetie, see you soon!

Today, as you may well know is Ash Wednesday. If you celebrate this as part of your religion, hoping you have a blessed day! If you do not, send some love to those who do, for the religious aspects of our lives are important to each and every one of us.  No matter who you are, I am hoping you have a wonderful day, a day full of love, life and the pursuit of happiness! Sending out my love to you all, as always, diana

Aging Gracefully!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on February 13, 2011 by dianaswonderworks

Wow, got a look at Susan Lucci today, did you know she is 64!? I am mean wow, she looks awesome! There seem to be so many women these days who seem to be aging with such grace and beauty, it is hard to believe. I can only walk away from those glances with the sincerest hopes, that I will be so lucky. I will say this, I know diet plays a part in it, and exercise, but I am beginning to believe there is more to it than that! The more I watch and see these women, i am convinced more and more it is about attitude than anything else. What I mean to say is that it seems the ones that look the best seem to be the most at peace with themselves, their lives and just full of love in their souls. There has to be something to that, the stressed out people we see on TV, really do show their age more, even when they have plastic surgery. Just a thought I wanted to share. I am really going to focus and bringing that peace and serenity into my life in a big way. I already do work everyday on being more loving in spirit, but I need to step it up a notch!

Got to make the best of the body and face I have! I do not mean it in a vain way, but there is something to be said about a healthy glow that goes far in others perception of who you are.  First impressions are al;ways on the way a person looks and carries themselves, and being business minded, if you want to make money, you have to look like you care about yourself as much as you do about your business. In this tight economy, if you want to stay in the game of business, you really have to look at how you are perceived.  This is not to say, you have to be twiggy, or that you should buy ridiculously expensive clothes, or even wear a ton of make up. It is to say, that no matter what you think you look like, maybe it would be good to get some one else to help you with what other people see. Just a note. I am going to look long and hard in the mirror today, see what I can do inexpensively to improve my impact on the world around me!

Lottery update, is that I have not won yet, or I would be paying someone to help me with my image, and getting my business out in a big way. Like a new gallery, with my name on it, and really looking hard into doing some really serious charity work and environmental work too! Hoping you are having a wonderful week, I am feeling very good these days. But for you and yours, I send my love and wishes, that today is the best day you have had so far! All my love as always, diana

Who’s That Girl?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on February 13, 2011 by dianaswonderworks

Well, off I go to the land of art. Been a while really, not for lack of trying, just been trying to get to feeling better. Since the last flu bout, and other personal stuff, it just seems like I am more tired than usual. So, every night I go to bed determined to shake it off, and do some work, but before I know it, morning has arrived and got to do this and that, before I know it it is the afternoon, and I haven’t had a chance to do any artwork. today it appears is no different, except, I am dragging out my art tools, if I have to stare at them all day or not! I will push myself, maybe it is just about having been sick and not playing with my markers and paints, that has me out of focus. Anyway, once I leave this blog, it is off to work I go. With any luck artists’ block will not be an issue. Who knows, once I get going, I may just unclog the damn and the creative juices will overwhelm me, it won’t be the first time.

I feel like I do not recognize this new person, I am. It is good though, almost wish I could have figured it out sooner, maybe it is just age. It could be the new found interest in my soul too, or the new determination to get my art career going. It could be just the acceptance of my spiritual gifts, and my ability to give those a chance to grow as well. I look into the mirror and wonder who is this girl?  Truthfully, it doesn’t matter who she is, I have determined that I like her very much! She can stay as long as she likes, I welcome her. As it is, no ideas in my brain, but that does not mean a blank piece of paper or a blank canvas won’t inspire me. I am feeling much more at peace with myself no matter what. I am convincing myself, that because I worked so crazy for so long, my body just needs some rest to catch up. Since, I don’t feel depressed or sad, I actually feel good, happy, and just quiet inside, that is really new to me! It seems to work nicely though, it is a change, so used to my mind reeling, but now the quiet seems to feel like a warm blanket. It is good! Hoping you had a wonderful weekend, not matter where you call home. Wishing you lots of smiles and laughter, sending out my love to you as always, diana
