Watch Out

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. 1 Peter 5:8-9

When things seem to be going well - sometimes that is when Satan tries to attack us the most. Know that God wants us to hear Him and acknoledge Him in the good times and the bad. God has infinite power and righteous - we should never doubt or not have faith that he will take care of us, not to say there isn't always something to be learned, but if that is a case look for the lesson and gain strength from the experience.

Satan wants us to think that we are less than we actually are, or that we are not valuable to God at all. He attacks us in ways that we don't even notice sometimes. Sometimes God will use a situation to teach us and strengthen us; however, Satan and his evil ways may cause us to think otherwise. Satan is powerful too. I'm not sure the extent of his power but I do know sin and anything sin natured can affect me. I know Christ as my Saviour and I know I will live in eternity with him - but when I am on this earth, I walk among many evil-doers and sin like anyone else. I am tempted just as anyone is. Whether I give in is another story.

I say this as a warning. Guard your heart over this Holiday Season. This is the season to celebrate God and his Son, Satan will have you believe otherwise. He may even try to make you depressed or feel like there is no hope, he will take any opportunity he can get!

Don't give in. Say to his face that he has no power over you. Tell him you are going to do what God says is right and have peace in it. Most important, trust God like you know you do. Trust Him like a child would - no questions about it. He is you Father, His ways are not our ways and sometimes things will happen to us we do not understand right now or perhaps never will.

I think sometimes we forget we are earthly beings and God is a holy, righteous, all knowing, powerful and loving God. He knows what he is doing, maybe someday you will understand - in this life on earth or as a heavenly being.

God loves you. He wants you to be happy and safe in his arms, let's make it a habit to not fight Him. Always do what God says is right - you can't go wrong. We are not alone. He even gave us an amour!

"Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Ephesians 6:11-18 "

God bless you and Merry Christmas!!

Daniel Leigh

One very inspiring person to me is Daniel Leigh. He is currently residing in London. I met Daniel when I was 15. I booked his band Sound Sculpture to play at the White Horse in High Wycombe, Bucks, England. I saw his talent that very night and continued to book his band in London and surrounding areas.

Since then I've discovered he has many talents. It seems like every time I turn around he's doing something new and working on something old. Unlike most people Daniel invests his time in projects from start to end and perfecting them along the way.

He is a writer and working on two novels, one of which is close to being finished. His writing relfects his great appreciation for life and every day things that inspire us. He takes from experience in life, the world(even galaxy) around us and also from observing people.

He is most well known for being a musician. From 2002 - 2007 he was the lead man in popular UK band Days in December.

Currently he is in two bands, New Device..

He also has a solo career..

Have a listen and keep an eye out for great things to come out of Mr. Leigh.

Now on to how he inspires me. Not only is he in incedible artist, musician and writer. He is a great friend. I've known Daniel for over 8 years now and with each year things get better and better. At first we had our time of silence but never since can silence even exist between us!

He encourages me to reach for high goals and follow my dreams. When I started painting he told me to paint more. When learnt guitar he listened, critiqued and taught me. When I started my etsy shop he encouraged me to put more stuff out there.

When I listen to his music I can see him on stage. Many times when he's been to my house to stay for the weekend (our long running tradition!!) he sits in my living room, plays his guitar and sings to me. Just hearing him sing and seeing his face whilst he does it makes me want to pick up my guitar.

We have such good times together. Going to church, hanging out, watching movies etc. Sometimes, we sit and watch documentaries and on commercials talk about all our ideas and other times we sit in my office and talk for hours. Maybe even laugh for hours too.

The reason I say this is because every day after he's mind is in overdrive and I'm inspired to create and work for hours. What comes of it..the next time he's up I have so much to tell him about what I've sold etc!!

These paintings are inspired by him:

Anyhow this post is getting looong and I'm getting tired!!

You can find those paintings in my shop.

Peace!! ox

Germany was fun. It took forever to get there by bus but at least I can say I did it! It wore me out. The Market was AMAZING, the food was great (yum, my kinda food! Love.)

Jesus was packed and ready.

There was inspiration everywhere!! I took notes!!

Hello..I am so going to make these journals..

Because my knee is bad I had to sit out at least an hour, but it was nice munch on a Nutella Chocolate Crepe while listening to this guy..

(I know..long post huh..)
I'm so charmed by BEE products!

I had lots of Mum! Starbuks. Dark Cherry Latte!

So after all the inspiration I decided to get crafty.
Today I made these candles that are available in MY SHOP.

They are so delicious. Chocolate Plain Cupcake Candles and Vanilla Frosted Chocolate Cupcake Candles. Yummy!!

Tomorrow I am making Salsa for the church dinner Wednesday. Perhaps I shall take you through that process. I have a few more candles up my sleeve!!

Inspiration time..(all the time)

Hi. First off can I just say sorry for not posting more..content filled blogs. I am a pretty sick little girl to be honest. I have a long list of health problems from bad tonsils to thyroid, hidradenitis suppurativa to polycystic ovaries. And on top of that the meds + any cold I have..make me very poorly and ran down. But I promise I will try harder. I don't think I am as busy next you might see more out of me then!!

On to inspiration..
This music makes me move!!:

(New Device)

This movie gives me many fashion and crafty ideas!!:


This person makes me very crafty:

I love this from Etsy..:

Which can be found at: THIS CUTE SHOP

Mmm. Can't wait to get some energy back. If you pray..send one up for me. I feel soooo dead right now..physically. Which can be so frustrating for mind is in overdrive. :)

Peace and Love!!

Super fun weekend!!

Hello. I had an awesome weekend!! I spent it with my precious friend, Daniel Leigh. He really is becomming a huge inspiration to me. He never ceases to amaze me either! Super talented and so fun to hang out with.

Satuday night we watched a movie and talked all night. Talking is something we do a lot of. My parents could be watching a movie or tv in the living room and for a few hours me and Daniel will be at the kitchen table sipping coffee and talking or inspiring eachother in my office.

Sunday we had a thanksgiving dinner at church. And Sunday night we watched some documentaries. Of course he was super tired (I do wear him out sometimes) and was falling alseep.

Today we hung out and talked more hehe.

We talked a lot about the past. It's really strange. We both have changed a tonne through the years. Our life styles are so different from then. I think each year we bcome better and better assets to ourselves and others. Each year we have gotten closer and closer to eachother.

I'm not really sure how to describe our friendship. Other than we are friends. Family. We love eachother and have a need for eachother. I don't think I've ever felt for anyone the way I feel for Daniel.

Oh yeah and he's a rockstar too. Pictures tomorrow. ox
