Butterfly fairy

I was walking in my garden and decided to have a rest under the apricot tree
I gazed up  through the pink blossom, and saw this little pink  fairy looking down at me
She whispered that she was waiting for the butterfly's to come and visit her
She always loved this time of year
Sure enough I suddenly saw two beautiful butterflies
Oh the joy of Mother Nature.

Love and light  Marie

living in the now

We have a tendency in this busy modern life, to forget to breathe out
From the moment that we take our first breath, to the moment we don't
We are busy breathing in all the impressions that come streaming towards us
Weather you are a child, a young student, a wife, a Mother, a Grandmother
A lot of searching goes on to find the meaning of life
I have found that the very best thing to do is 
To stop searching and live in the now
Being content with who you are today
Do not worry about your looks, your weight, your untidy house etc
Do worry  about what might happen tomorrow
Live in the now
Live for today

Love and light  Marie

Angels to bring light into your world

Angels around us,
angels beside us,
angels within us,
Angels watching over you
when times are good or stressed.
Their wings wrap gently around you,
whispering you are loved and blessed.

I have been making angels, love and angel light,   Marie

Spring emergence

It was still winter time,and the children lay asleep tucked up deep within Mother Earth, safe and snug in their winter coats.
The first rays of the warm spring sun shone down, and started to warm the Earth.
Up they came, putting on their beautiful Spring dresses, up they came, into the warm spring light, to dance amongst the flowers and under the golden spring sun.
How happy they were, after the long quiet of Winter.
How happy I am now to see the New Zealand Spring 

Love and light  Marie

Thou Spring here, it is Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere

Autumn had come.
The leaves were turning from green to gold.
The Acorn maiden held tightly to her most precious treasure.
This special acorn would be guarded by her all winter.
When the first rays of the warming spring sunlight appeared, she would plant the little seed.
Mother Earth would smile kindly on it and make it grow into a magnificent oak tree.

This  is an Autumn picture for my Northern Hemisphere friends

Love and Autumn light   Marie

Awake awake, Spring is here

Awake,awake little green shoot child
Awake to greet the Spring
You have been deep asleep within Mother Earth
You have been gathering all the minerals and energies needed for new growth
Push up,break through Mother Earths solid mantel
Now it is time to greet the Spring
Breathe in the fresh, clean air
Sway in her gentle breezes
Taste the light Spring rain
Feel the warmth of the Spring sun on your face
Awake, awake little green shoot child
Awake to greet the spring

Oh the joy being felt in New Zealand now, as the season of Spring appears.

Love and light Marie

Photo prints

Sometimes photo shops have really good deals on prints
I have decided to list in my Etsy shop some of my photos
They are $5 for a set of four
These are great for using on the Nature Table, or for scrapbooking or card making.

Gaining strength

Gaining strength takes time, we all start out as Princesses, with beautiful long flowing locks
And as we get older every day, we are able to stand more firmly on Mother Earth
There comes a time when we feel able to adorn an endurance hat
We wear this for many more years, then suddenly it starts to curl
It enfolds us, we feel strong
Not only in our mind and body, but also in our will
This gives us strength and empowerment

May all you start to feel your hat curling

Love, light and strength   Marie

Circle of life

This wee bird flew all around the world
She flew up into the blue sky
She rested in the green grass
Made a nest and hatched eggs
Then when her chicks had grown and flown
She again flew up into the sky
Her world was a circle
A circle of life

Love and light  Marie

Getting the balance right

Making mobiles is sometimes a bit tricky, to get everything hanging evenly
It is a little bit like life, to get the balance right
An old school chum of my sons committed suicide last week, he was 22
I remember him as an active lad, full of energy
Modern day life is so busy, one has so much streaming towards one
One must be aware of what is around one and remember to breathe the stuff out that is of no benefit to you.

Love and light to Daniel on the next part of his journey

Saying yes

I have a rather ambitious statement on my Etsy shop profile
It says "Custom orders are most welcome. I can make anything, needle felted out of pure wool"
I decided a while ago to stop being scared of saying "maybe I can not do that" to saying "yes I can". Once I opened my heart to let new things in, lots of custom orders came my way. My creative spark loves the challenge of a new piece, Here are a few of them.

Love and light Marie
