💙BARGAINS💙 Who loves a bargain? 🙋 Well, did you see my post yesterday? I was wearing my 'Foxy Lady' wire headband and mentioned that these two headband prints are half price! 😲 I found an extra stash of this fabric and as these are both older prints which I retired long ago it seems only fair to offer you lovelies a total bargain. .
I am now down to one of each left 😲 Don't miss out!

A happy accident...

Really love the random patterns you get when marbling clays together. Each piece is totally unique and will turn out differently each time. Swipe left to see how different this large bowl looks before 2 firings & when it's just been made. This beauty is unglazed but will have liquid quartz applied which doesn't alter its appearance so will look raw and naked but will be food safe and water proof. It's 25cm x 3.5cm deep and is for sale . . Unless I change my mind coz it's stunning 😬 .

We are designed to spend our lives making things. Every human soul has the need to create. Often we get into the habit of sitting around passively waiting for stuff to happen to us. We go into reacting mode and become a prisoner of our circumstances. Our ego is at work. .
.
Switch back into creative mode. Creative mode means aliveness, fun, excitement and joy. It also means to give up the need to be right, to dominate and to compare. Creative mode is based in the future while reactive mode is based in the past. Switch gears now and go play! .
.
Citrus Bliss - Invigorating Blend is the Oil of Creativity.
It can motivate us to to use our true creative power by letting go of old limitations and insecurities. Place a drop over the solar plexus to restore confidence in your Self and in your creations.

Did you know that lapis lazuli's dark blue energy is perfect for enhancing respect and compassion in ourselves? The dark blue colored stone helps us act more charitably, and focus our efforts on service to others. It teaches us grace, sensitivity to the needs of others, and tenderness in our dealings with others. I think the world could use more Lapis Lazuli! This Lapis mala necklace is up for grabs, DM for details.

I rolled out my yoga mat this morning. It's been sitting in my closet for weeks - neglected. Time to get back into the flow! .
.
I picked a 20 minute practice from my Shiva Rea DVD and set up my diffuser with 3 drops each of these two oils: .

A little something I made as my contribution to a silent auction benefiting Autism Speaks. Louisiana the state I'm in...cut out of "tooled" vinyl and stitched onto a grey and white wood grain fabric and framed in my 6" diameter "Brandish" metal frame.

🎉July doTERRA Bogo week is coming!!! 🎉

I received an email a few days ago that ended with "Thank you for speaking up". I was stunned. "Speaking up" has always been something I've struggled with. .
.
I used to be the one who tried to blend in and stay under the radar. The part of me that was terrified of being judged, was very dominant and the voice that said "you are not relevant" "who cares what you have to say", "see you didn't get any "likes"/recognition" was very loud. .
.
I've had to learn to embrace this part (and I am still learning) and to appreciate it as a sign that I am going in the right direction. Growth ALWAYS comes with fear. .
.
I developed a ritual that I use every time I share something I am passionate about. I picture one person in my mind who reads my post and it resonates and it will make a difference. .
.
I truly believe that sharing is caring and I encourage you to share YOUR passion. And if your inner critic says "don't", face the fear and DO IT ANYWAY! .
.
DōTERRA's Passion Inspiring Blend encourages us to take risks, to confidently face our fears, and to break free from the limitations we place on ourselves. .
.
Diffuse in the morning or apply to pulse points and heart throughout the day. .
.
If you feel inspired to bring this amazing blend into your home, message me!
