happy new year's eve!

as i await the midnight hour, thoughts of

intention + love + harmony + union + focus + concentration + imagination

fill my head. this year i am closing doors and putting to rest old habits of negativity, fear, and doubt. i fully embrace this coming new year with my mind set that this is the one ::: the magical year of transmutation! love. light. peace. calm. courage....may these things be a part of your mindset for creating the life you want in 2010!

breathe in the power of the universe.
breathe out the power of the universe.

breathe in the love of the divine.
breathe out the love of the divine.

breathe in the light of the Absolute.
breathe out the light of the Absolute.

as you inspire the power, love, and light of the universe, you exhale sharing love and light with all living beings. as you breathe, experience yourself expanding into the eternal light of all life. you are not a seperate entity, you are one with all that is.

deck the halls, walls, ceiling & floor...

I'm not so much on the fur skin rug, but besides that I love the colors, the clutter, the layers, the fullness. Collections like these are inspirations of a true bohemian~gypsy inner/outward presence. I have such an appreciation for {such} wonderful 'things', many that I find on the curb.

I've been meaning to repaint an old chest...I think I'll go with this green shade. Oh, and how I love the built in bunny den!!! I know three little rascals that could use a piece like this!

I love the idea of using a spare room for your dressing room....I mean LOOK at that! It's incredible! And don't you just want to crawl into that bed and curl away with a stack of books! {all of these wonderful images are from livingetc.com}


:My new stack of books:

Spiritual Nutrition.Gabriel Cousens, MD.
The Medicine Wheel Garden. E.Barrie Kavasch
Spirits of the Earth. Bobby Lake-Thom


~Merry Yule Body Butter~

1/4 cup grated cocoa butter
2 tablespoons light sesame oil
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon avocado oil
1 tablespoon grated beeswax

melt the oils & butter in a water bath

paper. once, twice, 3,4,5 times maybe.

{reading material}

{newspaper yarn}

{tiny paper buildings ~ sweet story}

upcycled..recycled..what the heck is the difference???

{I asked word spy, and this what she told me.}

upcycled ~ a process that takes used or *already* recycled materials and creates a new product with a higher quality or value than the original materials.

recycled ~ current recycling is actually what we call downcycling—reducing the quality of a material over several lifecycles until it is no longer useful.

♲ ...notice how after you look at either word long enough they really look funny and incorrect.
after making the catalog trees, i was inspired to continue my paper 'cycling' activities. i quickly found these beautiful examples!

each photo is linked to the original site ~ just click!

{paper city}

:::what else:::

a few books.
Vastu in 10 Simple Lessons. Bilkis Whelan
Life Magic. Susan Bowes
Daily OM. Madisyn Taylor

pandora station.
Boozoo Bajou

embark upon the journey.

foolin' around

ⓛⓘⓕⓔ is sooOOO wonderful....

home fries II

the sweetest little bunny in the world!

upcycled catalog trees....this particular tree was made from a paper bulb catalog.
i thought the colors were cool!


3 of the 4 i made last night.

the last few days have been completely filled with good food, old friends and fun crafts!

this one was really thick!

my first "green" smoothie ~ it was soooOOO yummy! blueberries, raspberries, mango, pineapple, spinach and water.

i love to bust out my needle-felting while we hang out in bed and catch up on our shows. i made this one for my hubby because he is so sweet and tolerates a house full of bunnies!

*i am sO inspired right now!*

{once upon a time...i blogged randomly:::like this}

* Edward Lorenz had a theory that every flap of a bird or butterfly's wing could alter wind patterns around the globe.
* ecology teaches us that everything is connected, every single thing we do has a ripple.
green elements~sun & moon, sky & earth, flowers & herbs.

my day in the sun ~☼~





what a glorious day! i've waited a long time for this moment.....

dear {great spirit} {mother earth},
you are inside of me, within my very breath,
within each little bird and each mighty mountain.
your sweet touch reaches everything
and i am well protected.

thank you {great spirit} {mother earth}
for this beautiful day before me.
may joy, love, peace and compassion be part of my life
and all those around me on this day.
i am healing and i am healed.
