* Post Card Swap

Before I get going this morning RED ALERTBlog Candy over at Lenna's.  She's done 1000 posts and is CELEBRATING in a big way.  Check it out!

Two lovelies have arrived.  I wanted to share, as both these woman have super duper blogs.

Drop in and see Marie's work HERE.  Some delicious stuff is goin' on over there.

From Solvenia, pop over and meet this delightful young woman who creates wonderful art HERE.  Believe me, she's one busy lady!

Last, but never least, Habibi fast asleep in my arms.  He's been drinking again!

Hope you all have a great day.  Thanks for stopping in.  It's a beautiful day for a chat. 

I find the following quote helpful in so many ways.  It helps me to usher my critic out the door when he comes to call.  I hope it will help you when your critic is being obnoxious!  xxoo

Our Deepest Fear
By Marianne Williamson

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
So that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We were all meant to shine, as children do.
It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
We unconsciously give other people permission to do the same
As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.


  1. The postcards are beautiful - is one from Natasha Ma? But the photo oh Habibi asleep in your arms really takes the biscuit!. And who took that photo?? Glad you have received some of your postcards. I have never been so excited about getting postcards as this time! Have a lovey day, and take care. I will mail you as soon as <i can put my thoughts together again!
    Hugs, Valerie

  2. Those are great postcards and their blogs are nice too. Looks like a lot of fun to receive such wonderful little gifts of love in the mail. Oh my goodness doesn't Habibi looked loved and comfortable. What a great picture.

  3. Mr. Habibi could give a workshop on "how to relax". Adorable! Good quote... and lovely art. Thanks for the links. shhh... don't wake him.

  4. wow! what a quote, Donna. You really know some good ones. I have a huge bank of them started from when I made LennaLines and sometimes we "share" the same quotes. But this one is totally new to me and so powerful. I love the thought of you ushering your critic right out the door! I can just imagine you doing this and it makes me smile.
    Second, thanks so much for posting the swaps button right at the top of your blog and the big shout-out!! :^ ) I am getting more visitors than I expected so I am glad I have 5 gifts queued up, and you have 3 chances!
    Lastly, I did a journal page today using a stencil (thanks for the reminder) and I used a pair of those lovely wings you sent. Love them -perfect for what I was doing! xo lenna

  5. those are some cool postcards you got there miss! :0)

  6. Ahhh....Habibi at his finest. The postcards have been fun and I hope you receive your final ones soon. I loved the variety with so many professional photographers taking time to participate. FUN FUN FUN.


  7. Donna did it .......again , made me laugh !!!!! Love your posts, love your comments love your humour and your arts not bad either !! You seriously crack me up. It seems my flower right hand corner addiction has been cured and I did not seek medical help just simple mind over matter ! Great postcards you received snd more to come I believe. As for the quote there are women everywhere saying this was written about me ! so true ! Sorry for the disjointed writing but am up to my 200th envelope well the cutting stage at least and am cross eyed and not a beverage of the alcoholic variety anywhere to be seen . Off to bed , night night


  8. Forgot to say that your Habibi is just gorgeous !
