Celebrating Signs From The Great Beyond

Do you get them? Signs from above? Well, I do. Yep, I get them every single day. They come in many shapes and forms. I find it adds some real interest to life. Though I don't look for them, I recognize them when they come. It's sort of like an "ah-ha moment", when I least expect it. Today I'm celebrating the signs (thus the cupcake photo :o) Especially the sun sign, my horoscope. Here's what mine says today;

"You'd be a fool to stop now. You know that, but nagging doubts keep you from fully committing yourself. Accept those doubts without succumbing to them. You have a good idea, so see it through."

Um humm, nagging doubts (that's me). Humm, 'a fool to stop now' (that's been my mantra for the past 6 months). Accept without succumbing (I'm sure trying, dang it!) See it through (Yes, I WILL!)

So, for the past month, I've been doing some focused GOAL SETTING, and it's been working out pretty well. I have always battled procrastination, but this time, I'm really focusing on a few really important goals, and I'm putting all my eggs in that goal basket. Instead of making a full page To-Do list (my normal modus operandi), I'm only looking at one or two items. So far, I like the results.

One of these goals is to really put my heart and soul into my creations (which I generally always do), but to really focus on bringing the best all together. I've been really happy with the results of my sweet summer outfits, like the So, So Sweet dress and purse here. The outfits have been doing really well at Austin's Gallery. They are selling as fast as I can make them. Well, really, who can
resist? I mean, that owl outfit... Heck, totally something I would wear! Never mind the looks of strangers...

So, So Sweet is another combination of the most colorful, irresistible fabrics ever, with a recycled wool panel for a needle felted design. This one is a swirly ice cream cone, beaded and embroidered. The matching purse is often the deal sealer for a potential buyer, and "Ice Cream Conie" is no exception!

Okay, I'm off to get on with my day. I'm going to keep my eyes and ears open for more signs coming my way! Give it a try, and pay attention to what you learn about yourself. All it takes is an open mind and heart. Now let's go celebrate the day!
