Love Shower Week Two


Hello Beautiful Ladies...and Handsome Men!

This week I wanted to be sure that I showered myself with Love in a way that didn't cost money. I did this intentionally because even though there are so many things I can treat myself to or pamper myself with that cost money, it is definitely not the only way!

So this week I went to not one, but two book club meetings! I haven't been to them in awhile and I just love spending time with like minded people and engaging in deep meaningful conversation face to face.

Both groups are reading The Untethered Soul by Michael Singer and I'm loving it. 

I also did some volunteer work for somebody that really needed a helping hand. Just a little over a year ago my family was facing a very difficult time and people who I did not know offered me and my family loving support. This week I was able to do that for somebody else and it felt amazing. While it was done for another was also for me and I am grateful that I had that opportunity.

What did you do this week?



I am having a wonderful week of extra special loving care for myself. It's amazing how good it can feel.

I bought this beautiful rock as a special treat from Kim at Queen of Arts.  I put it on my window sill in front of my kitchen sink and every time I turn on the water I look up and I can't help but smile at it. It's like my little secret.
I spent a good part of my day today browsing the craft store. There are two stores I could spend hours in...the craft/art store and the book store and this week it looks like the craft store was the big winner. I picked up an Art Journal magazine and some embroidery thread, yarn, and some beads.
Speaking of embroidery, I am addicted! I am having so much fun. I want to do it all the time.
I finished this little mandala

and then started this face

I have absolutely no idea what I am doing and I don't care. It is so meditative and I am enjoying it whole heartedly!
I am really enjoying this challenge. It has changed the way I think about my free time. I hope you are trying it out too. Let us know how it's working out for you!


  1. Oh, how happy she looks there !
    I am so glad you are enjoying her so much, Michelle ! Thanks for letting me know.
    Happy Creating !

  2. Jill and Michelle,
    What a bright cheery post from you both. Jill, just last week I asked my neighbor Jan if she would like to start a book club starting with The Untethered Soul by Michael Singer. She's getting her copy and we are going to invite some like minded women in the neighborhood. Michelle, I love the yarn art. For someone who doesn't know what she is doing. . . what can I say, it's beautiful!

    1. Pamela, that is so exciting! I hope you all have a great time and get a lot out of it ;)
