1.) A place or object hallowed from its history or associations; as a shrine of art.

2.) A case, box or receptacle, especially one in which one deposits sacred relics.

3.) Ritual Altar: An altar that contains objects placed for specific intent which have deliberate symbolism. An altar created thoughtfully enhances the ritual’s meaning for the individual or group.

Hi, my glitter gypsies! How are you today? I am very well, thank you! I want to send out a BIG MAHALO to all of the beautiful women & girls who attended my 1st retreat of the Fall Series on 9/10/11! We had a terrific time & everyone left with a finished Mandala that they all really loved! It was so fascinating to watch while each person created something from their own heART, not really knowing the outcome, but trusting in the process. Lots of support & inspiration were flowing freely & lovingly. The Mandalas all turned out very differently, reflecting the personal journeys that each person was on.

We began in a Ritual, known as “the Red Thread Ceremony.” Many years ago, my teacher, mentor & artist extraordinaire, Shiloh Sophia McCloud, introduced me to this ritual & passed it on to me to share with even more women. It is a way of creating a vessel, or sacred space, to hold all of us safely in the arms of freedom to create that which is wanting to be expressed, even if we’re not sure exactly what that is. It was a beautiful & blessed day, to be sure.

Again, I would like to thank all of the women & girls who joined me on 9/10/11! Which brings me to the next workshop on 10/01/11, 10:30-5:30 again. This time, we will be creating 3-dimensional shrines (or memory boxes.)An amazing workshop that you won’t want to miss!!! Just go to the Home Page & click on Personal Shrines & Memory Boxes button & all of the details are there. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. Sign up early, & get a discount + save your spot! Hope to see you there!!!

P.S. Within the next few days, I will be posting A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT/OPPORTUNITY! It is very exciting how the Universe plopped this into my lap, as I am open & flowing & following my heART , even if I’m not sure where it’s leading me…… Mahalo…..Glitter Gypsy

"Our Lady of Peace and Love"~~Dedicated to World Peace & Love on this 10th Anniversary of 9/11/2001

On this very significant weekend of not only the 10 year anniversary of the tragedy of 9/11/2001, but also, the numerical significance of the date tomorrow(9/10/11), as well as the “Full Moon in Virgo”, there is definitely a lot of energy moving around in the Universe.

Last night, I was up into the wee hours finishing this painting, “Our Lady of Peace and Love”~~dedicated to WORLD Peace and Love on this, the anniversary weekend of 9/11/2001.

I really wanted to go to sleep, as I need my rest to be ready to lead my “Women’s Creative Spirituality Workshop” this weekend. But, for some reason, this beautiful Lady kept calling out to me in Her gentle & loving way. “I need you to finish this, BEFORE this MOST SIGNIFICANT weekend to spread love & peace in the World. THEY NEED ME & this is something that you can do, in your own small way, to be a part of that POSITIVE energy.” So I listened, & I did it & here She is!

I’d also like to invite you to be a part of this “POSITIVE ENERGY MOVEMENT” with ME tomorrow at my Workshop! I REALLY want you all to come! This time, don’t worry @ $$. Payment plans & scholarships are available. This is about something BIGGER for me, for US. Please sign up, I will make it work!

Workshop #1: Mandalas

Hi Everyone! We had a fantastic time last weekend at my Open House/Studio Party!!! Interesting, fun, entertaining group of friends were in attendance, both old & new.

For those of you who weren’t able to attend, I just wanted to remind you that there are still spaces available for our 1st workshop (next Saturday, Sept. 10th)–Theme~~Mandalas. Many people have asked me exactly what a Mandala is. That’s a very good question & it’s not a word one hears in daily conversation. If you click on the word “Mandala” on the Workshops blog, there is a definition there. But, simply put, Mandala means “circle.” Anything can be called a Mandala if it is circular & the intention is there. As an example, the Earth, the Womb, a platter of fruit in a beautiful circular pattern, & so on. In our case, we will be creating a Mandala of art. We will begin with a blank circular form that we will bless with paint, collage, glitter, ephemera, or any meaningful photographs, mementos, or objects of significance to you. There are no wrong or rights~~we’ll be creating from our hearts. I guarantee that you will leave with something that YOU LOVE! Sign up now~~if you sign up for all 4 workshops, you’ll save $50.00! I invite you create space in your life to “CREATE.”
