We have started our floor sanding and painting yesterday. I've been moving everything out of the rooms and house looks like total disaster... No room to move around.. nothing can be found..
but it will be beautiful when everything is finished.. There is always hope.. isn't there?

The Law of Intention and Desire

The Law of Intention and Desire: Inherent in every intention and desire is the mechanics for its fulfillment. Intention and desire in the field of pure potentiality have infinite organizing power. When we introduce an intention in the fertile ground of pure potentiality, we put this infinite organizing power to work for us. I will put the Law of Intention and Desire into effect by making a commitment to take the following steps:

I will make a list of all my desires. I will carry this list with me wherever I go. I will look at this list before I go into my silence and meditation. I will look at it before I go to sleep at night. I will look at it when I wake up in the morning.

I will release this list of my desires and surrender it to the womb of creation, trusting that when things don't seem to go my way, there is a reason, and that the cosmic plan has designs for me much grander than even those I have conceived.

I will remind myself to practice present-moment awareness in all my actions. I will refuse to allow obstacles to consume and dissipate the quality of my attention in the present moment. I will accept the present as it is, and manifest the future through my deepest, most cherished intentions and desires.

What's in the drawers..

It rained a bit this afternoon after I watered the plants..great!!!, a friend of mine came to visit me with a wonderful gift. I will take a picture tomorrow and show off.. It was a very special gift for my little princess..

As I have ichyhandlitis(smile) and full of ideas as far as what I want to make.. but still organizing and rearranging my sewing room..(grrrrrrr..) now you know why it takes so long for me to do anything with a sewing machine..

I have a few sewing machines and serger machines just because I hate to change the colors of thread.. I use my dresser(there is a reason for this) as the sewing table but pretty small surface as you can see. so I had an idea for temporary solution.. Until my talented DH make me a new big sewing table.



I added a board on top of the dresser.. voila~~

Why I used the dresser as a sewing table.. Here is the reason..
I could hide all kinds of things in the drawers ...
This is what's in my drawers...
1 . Threads..

2. bias tapes. colorful elastics.. etc..


3. Zippers, rig-rags, bias.. laces.. etc..

4. Vintage buttons, vintage laces..

5.Drawer full of vintage laces collection..

6. Vintage and New Ribborns..
Now you know why I use the dresser as my sewing table.. to hide things..(smile) and easy finding things.. Now I can start making a few things.. I decide to giveaway what I am going to make.. so stay tune!!!!! There will be a giveaway sometime next week ,, hopefully..
Be well & Be Happy..

The Law of Pure Potentiality

The source of all creation is pure consciousness. Pure potentiality seeking expression from the unmanifest to the manifest. And when we realize that our true Self is one of pure potentiality, we align with the power that manifests everything in nature.

I will put the Law of Pure Potentiality into effect by making a commitment to take the following steps:

1. I will get in touch with the field of pure potentiality by taking time each day to be silent, to just Be. I will also sit alone in silent meditation at least twice a day for approximately thirty minutes in the morning and thirty minutes in the evening.

2. I will take time each day to commune with nature and to silently witness the intelligence within every living thing. I will sit silently and watch a sunset, or listen to the sound of the ocean or a stream, or simply smell the scent of a flower. In the ecstasy of my own silence, and by communing with nature, I will enjoy the life throb of ages, the field of pure potentiality and unbounded creativity.

3. I will practice non-judgment. I will begin my day with the statement, "Today, I shall judge nothing that occurs", and throughout the day I will remind myself not to judge.

Daily Inspiration:

"Happiness, not in another place but this place not for another hour, but this hour -- Walt Whitman

Happy Monday!
