Busy Braving!

Hello My Sparkly Friends!
Oh, how I have been missin' you!

I have been far, far away in Brave Girl Land
busy making peace with my
inner dragons and Beasties,

So the Pink Pixie Forest can get back to making pretty sparkly things to ooooh and aaaah at!

You see
after my mom passed away at Christmastime,
I then turned 50 in January
and just went into a slump
more befitting a TROLL

than a Pixie or Fairy.
I had to do SOMETHING!
For some reason, I just
my sparkle
and started having a really hard time creating.
So I enlisted in several
online classes-
BRAVE GIRLS being one of them.
I have to tell you,
these classes are really helping me to
work my way out of my
troll slump and

back to my


once again.

So here are a few of my
Lovely Pink Pixie Tulips

that burst forth to encourage me
on this restorative journey.

Now please go say hello to my other pinky friends at
Miss Beverly's
How Sweet The Sound

and send them all a

Sparkly Hugs,
Tobi and the Pixies!

  8. Hi Tobi,

    So sorry to hear about your mom passing..I didn't know that....now you hang on there girlie...turning 50 is just the beginning of living! I'll turn 53 in a few months....however, I have discovered that it's true that growing older is not for sissy's...tee hee :0) I think something new pops up with me every year here lately.

    I'm glad the workshop is helping you. I've had to find my way back to my sparkle..I think every woman our age has had at least one slump. Menopause is what stripped me of my memory and concentration...it's been a struggle but I'm fighting it all the way!

    I'm so glad to hear from you. I've missed you and had no idea what all had happened.
    You take care of yourself and drop by anytime.

    Pink Sparkles for your days sweet Tobi,
    Stephanie ♥

  9. Hi Tobi,
    So glad you're doing better. Keep surrounding yourself with sparkly pink pretties and you'll be fine! Thanks for your visit and I hope you're having a Happy Pink Saturday weekend.


  10. Oh Tobi, I am so glad you are back. I wondered what had happened to you.
    I am very sorry at the loss of your mom.
    A January birthday? Me too, only I turned 60!!
    I hope you are feeling a bit better with each passing day. Take is slow and enjoy your garden, it's beautiful.
    Happy Pink Saturday, Char

  11. Hi Tobi Sweetie...
    Oh I am SO thrilled to see you and the Pixies back in PINK land. I love your sparkly treats each week and they SO bring out the imagination in me. I love coming to your magical blog sweet friend.

    I am SO sorry to hear about your Momma sweet girl. One day at a time sweet girl.

    I turned 54 in April. It doesn't bother me anymore. I just started looking at it as another day of life that I have here on this earth. You don't look a day over 30 sweet girl if that. I wish I looked as young as you. You are truly beautiful. It must be the magic dust from the pixies. Would you mind asking if they could send a little my way as well, or better yet, visit me in my sleep?

    Many hugs to you sweet girl. We will talk soon. Much love, Sherry

  12. Hi Tobi... I have missed you! I'm so very sorry to hear about your mum, but at the same time, must tell you that you don't look 40, much less 50...and I hope that brings a smile to your gorgeous youthful face. Take care, hon. xoxoxoxox

  13. Hey, happy pink day! Your my 200th friend! Thanks! What a lovely blog and shop! :) Look at you with 413 make that 414 ;) Sorry about your mom, I get what you are dealing with. God has a plan and purpose for everything he loves you so much! Trust HIM! Blessings to you! DE

  14. Thank you for visiting my blog today! Happy Pink Saturday to Monday to you too!!
    I LOVE your work! AMAZING!
    And I am sorry for your sad time too.
    You have a ton of blogs! I don't know which one to go to!! I will try to see them all.
    I'm happy to know you! You are awesome!

  15. Hi Tobi, It is so easy to lose our sparkle these days. I am so happy you are finding yours again! I'm sure your Mommy is there with you. She is shining through your lite. I can see your lite coming through and almost see your sweet Mothers. The more you create the more both of you will just shine. I can't wait to see your new creations. You keep going girlfiend.

    Hope & hugs to you and yours


  16. I'm sorry you've been having a rough time this year! I'm glad you're taking steps to bring your sparkle back though!!! Keep it up m'dear! You're worth it. ^-^
    50 is a beautiful age. Embrace your years, live them to the fullest. Look back fondly on younger times & forward to new experiences with anticipation.
    Here's a big pink, sparkly hug & kiss for you! =D


  17. Don't you just hate it when LIFE gets in the way?!
