A Comforting Song

I love this song, "Mother in the Dream" and this little boy does a wonderful job singing it. When I first heard this song I did not understand the words he was singing but I could feel what he was singing. Sounds strange? Yeah, I would agree but it's the truth. To me the song is touching and somehow comforting.
Later I found the English translation. Indeed the words were touching and comforting.
The little boy singing is an eleven year old orphan. He says that he sings this song when he misses his mother. I think the songs gives him comfort too.
It's interesting how a song with words I don't understand can touch and comfort me. This song helps me....
Enjoy Life!

"In the stillness among the vast lands
I dream of Mother praying for me
She looks afar and gives precious milk to the heavens
As offering for my well being
My Mother, so far away
So far away
Stars twinkle above the grasslands
While in my dreams I see Mother's caring face
As she prays to heavens to wish me godspeed
My Mother, so far away
So far away
In my dream is see Home basking in golden sunbeam
While Mother softly sings and enchantling melody
There in the grasslands lies my everlasting home
My dearest Mother, wait for my return"

Card Challenge

My friend Roxy is doing a card challenge on YouTube. I have been participating in the challenge and have had a great time doing so.
I must confess, I am not a card maker but would love to some day be able to make beautiful cards.
Have you taken a look at how much cards cost today? Yes, making cards is not a bad thing to do. I also love the personal touch and attention to detail that is given to each handmade card.
So, with that said I have been participating in this challenge and hope to continue to do so until it runs it course.
I hope you like the cards I have made. If you want to make some cards and need some materials to create with, head on over to my etsy shop and get you some blank cards and tags. They are there ready to be altered and embellished. Come on out and play. I am sure you will....

Enjoy Life!

Could it be?

Could a celebrity of a certain status go undetected as mentally ill?
Could a celebrity of a certain status commit suicide and others call it accidental drowning?
Could a celebrity of a certain status be so unhappy that they turn to drugs and such to escape their own reality?
Could the evidence that supports all of these questions be right in front of someone and go ignored?

Just questions .... really.

Beautiful Bottle

I saw this image and fell in love. It has become my inspiration piece and I hope to create something based on it. How I will do is another story. I am in the process now of gathering all the pieces to put this project together.
What do you put in such a beautiful bottle? I decided to put my beautiful dreams and hopes.
I got to get started. This bottle makes me smile deeply and....

Just Being Crafty

This is actually part two (2) of my Saturday crafty adventure. I didn't get to finish filming Saturday so it extended into Sunday.
I have a great time creating and while this hobby can get expensive I make every effort to purchase things in small amounts and share with others when I can. It's just something that helps me....

Enjoy Life!
