One of the things I have been working on in the last few months is truly honoring myself, and respecting my talent and my time. I need to believe that I do have something special to offer with my art, and I am happy to say that I am finally doing it. I am finally believing in my worth.

I admit it. I got caught up in the routine of life and in other things that were invading my mind and I just plain stopped putting any energy into my painting and my ETSY store. I allowed so many other things to take hold of my energy. I feel like I have maybe slept walked through most of 2015.

Talk about a huge surprise for me. I was contacted by an Art Director for the TV Show Criminal Minds. She was asking if she could purchase a high res digital download photo of one of my paintings. Of course, I was thrilled and said sure thing.
I mean what a deal for me. I get paid what I was aksing for the original painting but I get to keep the painting and I get to see my art in an episode of one of my favorite shows. Un-fricken-believable!

Last Wednesday May 14th was a beautiful Full Moon. I gathered all of my crytals together and set them outside all night so they could soak up the energy of the Full Moon. The Full moon is so powerful and its energy can cleanse and charge crystals.
The next morning I brought the crystals in and they were all just beaming with happy energy. I decided I needed to paint a few pictures so I went about my normal routine of seeing what crystal wanted to be used that day and not surprisingly, my Moonstone Crystal just about jumped into my hand.

Paint on my hands makes me happy.
This morning I took a long hot bath and the shower and got myself all clean. Then I watched a couple of very intense and emotional episodes of Grey’s Anatomy. Cried my eyes out and had to remind myself to breathe but I love shows that make me do that.
