Hola gorgeous goddess!!!

 

A special treat for you today!

How to make your own magical wall hanging in just 17 steps!

WEE!

LET’S PLAY!

 

1. Fall in love with the old war time saying:

KEEP

CALM

AND

CARRY

ON

2. Make it you & your love’s motto for getting through the shittiest year of your lives.

3. Consider buying a crappy, overpriced, kinda-blah tin wall hanging of it to adorn your space & remind you.

4. Decide to make it yourself.

5. Scavenge for a piece of crappy plywood found in the prehistoric relics in the Creative Caravan.

6. Take baby out in yard & gesso it in about 3.7 seconds flat, artfully making sure baby a.) has fun & makes art whilst b.) not ingesting said gesso.

7. Consider repainting to make a bright bold colour (or at least fill in the crappy paint job). Decide instead to leave it and call it shabby chic. WOO!

8. Think about painting on the letters. With adorable baby & exploring fingers, this would mean certain death of a.) my zen and b.) a somewhat readable sign work.

9. Instead, go the easy & happy option. This is always the best option for mamas.

10. Gather up scrapbooking paper & scraps of paper that me & Star Baby have painted all over.

10.5. Decide inspiration is less muted-hipster-vintage colours & more Eric Carle colours.

11. Cut letters out (quickly) while Star Baby takes every scrap of spare paper, shoves & unshoves them into an envelope, sprinkles them on the floor, wants to get onto the floor to play with scraps, wants to get back on chair to get to envelope again, crawls over table to procure marker to write all over self, crawls onto me to get back onto floor again, wants a boobfeed, attempts to procure the scissors, goes searching for the dogs & leaves a trail of scrap paper wherever she goes.

12. Attempting to do anything with lil kids is an exercise in becoming a bodhisattva.

13. Wait till baby is asleep & I have finished watching Youtube to start glueing letters into place.

14. Use wood glue PVA kinda stuff. Just incase you were wondering.

15. Handsome husband watches & takes photos & looks cute & reads a book & tells me about the latest psychology research on how reading novels develops the brain. He’s hot.

16. FINISHED! HAPPY!

17. Now residing in kitchen. Looking adorable.

 

YAY!

WE DID IT!!!! WE MADE OUR OWN AWESOME KEEP CALM WALL HANGING!!! HIGH FIVE SELF!!!!

 

As we dive into this celebration season… why not spend some time creating?
LOVE! COLOURS! MAKING ART! HAPPY DAYS!

Why right now is the perfect time to cleanse your home…

by Leonie Dawson on December 21, 2011

 

Hola gorgeous medicine women!

 

One of the most important things we can do for ourselves, our family & our homes is to regularly cleanse our homes.

We do this physically – by decluttering, releasing old belongings that no longer serve us or fill us with joy, by rearranging our home, vacuuming and cleaning.

And it’s just as important (if not more) to do it energetically – to learn how to do sacred space clearing and do it often.

You might have already felt the twinge to be doing this, to make your home a sanctuary for the holiday season.

As we sit on the beginning of solstice, it’s even more a powerful time to be doing it.

We’ve just changed seasons, and winter solstice (in the Northern Hemisphere) and summer solstice (in the Southern) is an important time to tend to yourself, to cleanse away and release the past.

 

Why you should do sacred space clearing

 

It will help you have:

  • a zenner mind
  • less tension in relationships
  • more money flowing in
  • create a more shining-with-clarity New Year
  • a calmer holiday season!

 

 

 

What I’ve been doing to prepare for the solstice…

 

I’ve been decluttering our home, rearranging our bedroom and creating little spaces for me to play with Ostara in. And over the last week I’ve been doing sacred space clearing – both around the house and in my caravan, and in our whole yard.

It’s such a powerful time of the year to be cleansing and setting intentions!

Tomorrow (solstice day), I’ll head out to a dear friend’s home to be with women & celebrate the longest day in our year… ripe with energy & sun goodness!

 

 

If you don’t know how to sacred space clear…

 

Sacred space clearing is one of the most transformational tools I’ve learned from my mentors. There’s so much to learn, and it really is incredible work to do.

I put together the How to do a Sacred Space Clearing kit with everything I know to help you become a sacred space clearing goddess.

To be able to totally shift the energy in your home, in a way that affects the peace, joy and abundance of your whole family and life, really is the work of medicine women (that’s us!)

 

(A beautiful goddess from one of my retreats a few years ago… a true medicine woman!)

 

We can heal our life!

 

Beginning right here, right now. With us, and with our homes.

We heal ourselves. We heal our spaces. We heal the whole ding dang world.

I believe it with my whole heart.

This is the big work here, dear sisters.

 

Happy Sacred Solstice!

 

love, light, wonder & medicine women,

 

P.S. If you haven’t learned how to sacred space clear yet, I so strongly recommend you do – it really can make the world of difference. Either find someone who can teach you, or grab the Sacred Space Clearing Kit – it comes with videos & a beautifully illustrated workbook… as much as I could do to help you in person!!!

P.P.S. If you are a Goddess Circle member, you get this kit FREE with your membership of course!

And if you’re not a Goddess Circle member yet – it really is the biggest, best & most affordable creative, spiritual + business resource on ze planet. I make sure of it! You might like to consider gifting it to yourself for Christmas to support, inspire, guide & help you get to the places you want to go in 2012.
