Art Is Food For The Soul!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 25, 2010 by dianaswonderworks

I am still working on the sunflower painting, hopefully I will be done today or tomorrow. It should be obvious that I did not make it to the art show today. My tooth is killing me again, so I am trying to heal up, in the hopes that I can avoid another bill, and save the tooth. We shall see. So many things on my mind right now, so many choices before me, and not clear answers  on which way to turn. Time is running out and choices will have to be made. The crazier it gets the more I immerse myself in my art. Both to keep myself calm and feel the happiness art brings me and to trigger those problem solving skills that are definitely right brain activities. Like art which is right brain, problem solving skills are also right brain. I can honestly say that my biggest obstacle is fear. I do not trust myself to make the right decision, it seems so many of my choices have led to more problems. I am tired now and am seeking relief. Unfortunately, that does not mean my struggles are over, wanting something and getting it are generally two different beasts!

At this point in my life caution is definitely the rule of the day. Impulsiveness, which has always been my way, is now retired, and that worries me as well. Because, the truth of it is that sometimes being impulsive can lead to good things. I feel like I am taking a huge exam, and this one could change my life forever, for good or ill. It is a timed test and time is running out, so a choice has to be made, and I do not know the right answer. Today I will paint, and hope, and pray that somehow in all of this I can find my answer, and that the answer I choose is the right one! Searching my soul, my heart and my mind, while I work to complete my newest artwork. I will work also to find the answer to the next path I choose in life. Wish me luck ( the good kind), I need it!

Time is ticking away at me, and I have lots to do before the sun sets for the day. The lottery jack pot is not mine as of yet, and I have been working on a thought to do some good in this world, while I can. I truly want to give back in some way, since money has ever been a hardship for me, I must find another way. A plan has been formulating in my mind for quite sometime, and I must fix on it and make it happen. As I work out the smaller details and move forward I will be sharing with you, it does have to do with charity, and there are several that are dear to my heart.  I believe my choices are at hand, and my wishes for my destiny in art are not about me, but to help others with the gift I have been given. Send me your good will, and I will work hard on making you proud to know me. That I can promise! Sending you all my love, diana

All That Remains Is Love!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on August 8, 2010 by dianaswonderworks

Well, for starters, I did go to the craft and art fair yesterday. It was a bust, nothing, nobody, and so very hot! I had an opportunity to talk to one of the ladies in charge, and we hit it off well. Even though, it was a bad day, I will continue on, with the hope, that as word gets out it will improve. I plan to talk to her tomorrow and make plans to do a Grand Opening event soon, that way we can get the word out to the locals for buyers and more sellers. Hopefully a big jump start will bring things together for us. I also have a couple of ideas for the kids, and am hoping to get enough funds together to get that going as well. Business online is still at a dead spot, but I continue to learn new techniques and push forward every day. In time it will grow, and hopefully it will be sooner than later. Work, work, work and stay determined, do not let the bad days ruin you, faith must prevail! Anyway, that is what I keep beating into my head. So far this week I have been unlucky in Love, but with any luck with will open a door to Lucky In Finances!

I am going to continue on, and not let my love life interfere with my work, that has been and will be the one thing I will focus on. I am meeting new people everyday, and making new bonds. These will be the bonds that help me make it through the tough time I am having now. As one door closes another always opens, and I do believe this and that fact that it will lead to newer and better things ahead. I can’t let a speed bump in life deter me from continuing down the road. There are many kinds of love in this life, and as I get older, I am realizing that the love I have for myself is greatest of all. it can and will sustain me, and bring me to higher places in my soul and in my heart!I have the love and support of my children and my friends and these too, will bring me to the place I dream of in my mind. It is the place that brings me peace in all this ciaos. It is only a small minute in the expanse of time, and I cannot let that be the minute that destroys all my hopes and dreams for a better and brilliant future!

No big wins in the lottery drawing, so it will be another day. I think maybe it is time for me to focus on my dreams, and that would only distract me at this time. Completing the life I dreamed of as a child is what I must create, that will be the solace that soothes my soul. I do hope you are having a wonderful weekend, today no one is at the fair, so for me a day off. Tomorrow, will be another day to move forward. Anyone interested in any of my items online, be waned, I do take them with me to the show, so if it sells, it will be removed from my shops. Also, today a friend of mine is coming by to do a custom order for her, so hopefully at least that will be one small job to get me by. It will be nice to have some work! With any luck I will be able to work on it at the craft show the next day or so, not sure yet how big it is, may take a few days. I am looking forward to finding out. All for now, sending you and yours my love, hoping your Sunday is filled with it, and that you start out your week full of joy! Love always, diana

A New Coviction, A New Life!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on July 25, 2010 by dianaswonderworks

Just saw the movie Invictus, what a great movie! I love the poem and am inspired by it. Thought I would share it for those of you who haven’t read it, and those that have a reminder of how powerful it is! Hoping your weekend is going great! I have been busy working on a new shop I will share with you. It is on Zazzle and I can put my prints on t-shirts, coffee mugs, posters and all kinds of cool things! I am excited, it is on this blog, if you get a chance look it up and let me know what you think. Love hearing from you.

Anyway, got to get back to work. Nothing exciting on the lottery yet. Haven’t got on the charity book yet, still in process. As soon as I find out, you will be the first to know. Love to you as always, diana

Invictus

by William Ernest Henley; 1849-1903
Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,

I thank whatever gods may beFor my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstanceI have not winced nor cried aloud.

Under the bludgeonings of chanceMy head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tearsLooms but the horror of the shade,

And yet the menace of the yearsFinds, and shall find me, unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,How charged with punishments the scroll,

I am the master of my fate;I am the captain of my soul.

Learning Efficient Sales Online, New Painting And Soul Rejuvination

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on July 15, 2010 by dianaswonderworks

Well, today is a new day, and full of new beginnings. I have mentioned my luck has been less than pleasant lately, and after much soul searching, and philosophical thinking, I think I am finally able to answer my own questions. Those little breaks from counseling everyone else gave me some time to reflect on myself for a change. The new light bulb moment, things I always knew before, but some how forgot, is it is me! I am not myself, and understood that, but I was spending all my time blaming everything around me for that change. Once I sat down and looked at it all, I realized some where along the way, I lost me and that is why my life is not what I want it to be. Life beat me into a corner and I started second guessing myself, and tried to do it the other people do it. But, that will never work for me, individuality is the creator of a unique life. By giving away my uniqueness, I got that crazy, stressful, meaningless life that so many others had. Thanks, but no thanks, I am done with that plan. I want my old crazy, but fun and exciting life back! So, I am putting myself back into my own therapy, and getting it right again. Being like other people is very over rated. For me originality with all its side ways glances, and snickers and even those snide remarks is still much more fulfilling. I feel so much happier in just a day, and so excited to get me back again, I liked me!

In other topics, currently I am reading a book on how to sell on Facebook. I keep falling asleep, not sure if it is me just revitalizing, with my new epiphany or if the write  just is not my speed. Some books make me sleepy, that is not to say it is a bad read, I actually find it interesting, so in a few days I should be able to decide what is causing the drowsiness.  I am happy to say, that I am working now on a picture or pictures of bull dogs for a calender idea for a group I am involved in, It may take a couple of days, but at least I can share my other painting I mentioned in earlier blogs. Hope you like it, it was tough cutting all those lines, but I think the end result is very much my style.

Tomorrow is the day I get lottery, I did not update you this week because the lady I purchased them from did my tickets wrong. There should have been numbers for Friday, Saturday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Unfortunately, I did not notice till I was home that she just gave me double numbers for Friday and Saturday. But, got to roll with the punches, so hopefully this week will be on track again, that lottery pot is getting quite large again! That would be so wonderful! Hoping you all had a wonderful week, and that your weekend is joyous and full of adventure! Drop me a line anytime, love to get feedback, and as always with love, diana
