Happy New Year My Sparkly Friends!

Hello my sparkly friends!
Happy New Year and Happy pink Saturday :)
I would like to thank all of you for your heartfelt sympathy and comments on the passing of my mom.
I am trying to feel better each day.
My bit'o'pink today is a picture of my sweet doggies
Sorcha and Skye.
Oh how they love to snuggle with me on my bed, and I have been letting them do that a lot lately because they make me feel so loved!

Sorcha loves this yellow ball we call her "gumball". She falls asleep with it. I guess the "Pink Saturday part is her tongue!
Today I saw my old perfume "Ciara" at CVS and bought some to bring me back to a happy time. I think I was 17 when I wore it.
I opened it and YOW that stuff is STRONG!!
I don't know how I could stand being with me!!
Anyway my lovlies, the ball just dropped and I guess I am getting old cause I wanna go to sleepies!
Happy New Year!!!!

Well, thanks so much for visiting us today!
Please go visit my other Pink friends

Bye Bye Mama

Hello my Sparkly Friends
I am very sad today.
I just found out my mom passed away yesterday.
Nobody told me
I found out this morning when Ashley called me from Austria
to see how I was.
When I asked her what she meant, she told me my mom had passed away yesterday.
I don't know what hurts more...
the loss ...
or the feeling of betrayal from my brother and sister.
Or telling the feelings "that I should have called more
and put away my feelings of abandonment (I was adopted)
and reached out more and told my fear of getting close because she would leave me again" to "Just Shut Up".

I guess the reason for me writing this is for those you out there- my sparkly friends- that might be holding back love because of fear.
Fear of rejection
Fear of More Loss
Fear of abandonment...
you get the picture.
Stop holding back because eventually
there wont be a
loving more won't be a possibility
that window will close.
Death gives us a great perspective on what kind of people we have been being up till now,
and a chance to start acting like the people we want to be.

My mom's name was Jan. She had me when she was 17 and my sister was already 14 months old.
My adoptive parents wanted to adopt my sister too, but my mom said no.
I lived my entire life with this "vision" of my "real mom".
Don't get me wrong,
I very much loved my adoptive parents- they were my parents, but I always had this longing to connect with the person who had given me my quirky personality and my blonde hair.
When I was 35, I was reunited with her- my mom Jan at last.
I found out where my artistic abilities came from, my "bucking authority", my stubbornness, my love of animals, the great outdoors, my long legs, blonde hair and blue eyes as well. I found out that when I was first born, she had to pretend that she was keeping me and so for 8 days in the hospital she had to feed me and hold me- all the while knowing that she had to give me up.
Um, I think today they call that BONDING- and I guess we bonded which is why I had always felt a missing piece of me was out there even though I had loving adoptive parents.
She told me "Sometimes I would hold you and tell you that Don't worry I will come back to get you"...
Those words pierced my memory... like a distant familiar echo- I somewhat remembered deep in my heart her saying that.
Then, 35 years later I found myself sitting in her living room in Florida, watching Maury Povich or some show like that- looking in the audience for her...
and she was doing the same thing!
We looked at each other and started laughing that we didn't have to look for each other in talk show audiences anymore!!
So far this story sounds like a great happy ending.
Here is where my stupid fear of abandonment came pounding up my walkway and barreled down my door.
You see, my mom had a big drinking problem and as happy as I was to finally meet her, I was also scared to get too close because I would lose her again.
That my sparkly friends is the mistake I am talking about.
I wasn't able to get myself to regularly keep in touch. I didn't act like a great caring daughter.
I probably hurt her a lot by not regularly calling.
My fear took over and sometimes months passed before I would call her.
It was a lot to process and

I took the easy way out-

I procrastinated.

I avoided...

Now I can't do that anymore because she is no longer available.

I guess the whole point about writing this post is so you don't make the same mistakes I just made.

Don't be selfish with your love and by that I mean don't hold it back cause you fear getting hurt- that's just plain selfish and I can only see that now that I have made my own bed.

Feeling like I do right now is a lot worse than any hurt from "perceived loss".

Christmas is just 2 days away now.

Hug your family.

Hug your neighbors.

Hug your enemies.

Keep in touch.

I just don't know how Jesus did it all the time...

I wish I could be just a tiny bit like Him.

I guess that means forgiving my brother and sister... quite literally.

Could you please pray for me to have my heart open to forgive?
Cause right now my ego is really mad at what they did.
I don't want it to win
I want love to win
but it is really hard to stay open
when I am so used to staying shut.

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas my sparkly friends...
thank you for stopping by- it warms my heart to know you are out there.

Happy PS!

Hello My Sparkly Lovelies!

Pink Poodle Saturday!!!

Hello my Sparkly Friends,
and Happy Pink Saturday!!
I think I burned off my fingerprints with my gluegun this week! You see, I have my last craft show this weekend, and last week I posted a bunch of my trees on Ebay. I didn't expect it, but I sold nearly all of them, and now this week was spent making more.
Here is a pic of my room for the show, it is in a Historic mansion called Deepwells in St. James.

All of the craftspeople are spread out throughout the mansion, and i have my very own room!
So of course I "Pinked It Up"!!

Now here is a box that is still up on Ebay-
My Marie Antoinette
Garden of Versailles
Hat Box

This Poodle box will be with me at the show...hopefully someone will give it a good home!

Here is a Poodle tree and a Baby Poodle Box. They will be at the show as well!
Well my sparkly friends, I still have trees to glitter, and it is 1:37 am. so I need to go.
Hope you all have a Sparkly day!!!

A Tree For Yelena Abramyan!!!

But we're not too busy to remember our youngest Pixie Friend,
Yelena Abramyan!
Back in the summer, I was talking to her mom April, and she told me that Lena just loved the Pink Pixie Forest,
so we decided to give her a little part of it!
She is 9 years Old and loves all things sparkly.
I hope she didn't think we forgot about her!

Dear Sweet Yelena,
This tree is for you!!!

We remembered that you liked Ballerinas,
we hope you like Unicorns as well
(pretty sure you will!)
We left room for you to add your own ornaments,
so you can say that you made this tree with the Pixies!
Now you ARE an Honorary Pixie,
so make sure you give lots of
Sparkly Hugs
to everyone...
especially the grumpy ones!!!

And remember, Dear One, to always hold a place in your heart for
kindness and magic...aka
We will be shipping her next week, so keep an eye out!!!

Next up My Sparkly Friends

Angel Fairy Box
that I just listed on Ebay.
