    seems pretty keen on animals and anything involving babies I reckon she can do anything she sets her mind to This conversation is a great example of why having faith in myself facing my fear of exposure and failure and showing my vulnerability as an artist maker has been worth it I realised in this instant that I birthed more than just one Gutsy Girl I have shown my daughter that there is more than one role for women and the possibilities really are endless This morning she says maybe I can have my own aquarium I say why not If this post inspires you please consider sharing it with your friends If you have a story of your own to share please add your comment below Friday Link Love 7 3 2014 Hello I hope you ve had a wonderful week It has been a little while since I posted here I have a bunch of blog posts lined up for you recipes art tutorials and journaling prompts crystals and jewellery making addressing subjects like worthiness fear and authenticity and my plans for in depth soul work this year Consider following my blog if these topics interest you I promise you it will be juicy Today I m sharing a few things I m enjoying right now I love this series on chakras by Kristen Hedges It will perfectly compliment the Chakra Rhythm class I will be doing in April Last month I received my Level 1 Reiki attunement from Ruby and I can tell you that it is proving to be a life changing re framing experience Ruby is a beautiful soul who I connected with immediately I wish Canada wasn t so far away The Chakra Rhythm class is part of an accredited Certified Metaphysical Practitioner course I joined in January led by Marissa When I found out about this class via Amulet magazine it resonated with a few of my core desired feelings and I just had to do it Amulet magazine is a beautiful publication If you know me I think you ll see why I love it Check it out and decide whether it is something you are into as well My aims this year are to explore and strengthen my intuition and actively deepen my art practice Whilst I had a big creative year last year first art exhibition and 4 markets to prepare for while holding down my daytime profession I had long periods of nothingness due to some challenging personal matters In a couple of weeks I will be at a painting workshop with by Jesse Reno and I cannot wait I m ready to go further with my art making and see what comes out Next month I am joining Mati Rose for her class Daring Adventures in Paint Life Can t wait to experiment play and be free to layer vibrant colour Hmm better overhaul the art room in preparation And for some non link related news I was

    I finally went through the years of clothes my daughter had outgrown I found many clothes from size 3 right up to size 5 including this year s school tracksuits which she d outgrow before next winter in very good condition I explained to my daughter what we were taking and why and that I would take photos so she could see that they would be appreciated by their new owners On our first trek we walked to the school in Ma Cha We walked around and peeked into the classrooms As a couple of us looked into the Grade 1 classroom to see about 28 children we knew this was going to be an emotional visit I saw dirty faces shabby clothes some without shoes and their gorgeous dark eyes were all on us I thought about how different life is for these children compared to ours The children walk many kilometres to get to school barefoot in the mud on rocks through all weather conditions I almost cried right then The classes took a break to line up in the schoolyard so we could meet them I was kneeling in front of each Grade 1 child measuring them up to see which of my daughter s clothes would fit them I started to worry there wouldn t be clothes for each of the smaller kids I wondered if I had something to fit the bare bottomed toddler age 2 who was piggybacking on her sister I wondered if there d be some clothes suitable for the younger boys As I kneeled among the rows of children I missed my daughter even more In the end I couldn t keep it together and I did get upset in front of the kids But every child in the Grade 1 class inherited a piece of my daughter s clothing so did some of the boys and the toddler Tears were shed by us Maidens but we felt good that we made a small contribution to them that day Our trekking continued on to Taphin where we stayed at a homestay with a Red Dao family I really enjoyed this stay I must mention the food was to die for Rain was pretty heavy the following day making the trekking challenging and slow Mud squelched right over and into our hiking boots The waterfalls overflowed and there had been landslides It was a little worrisome walking on a landslide affected path Not knowing what was underfoot was best not thought about Our other trekking destinations included Y Linh Ho Lao Chai and Cat Cat We faced some physical challenges as we wound our way around up and down the mountainsides in rain heat and humidity Some of the tracks were really steep and slippery and the bamboo forest section was an experience Fortunately there were no injuries but there were scratches and bruises Our longest trek was on the last day approximately 16km according to the itinerary and other days we
