Grazie, Grazie!

It’s a sweltering, Summer day here in South Texas, but I feel like I just moved out of the hot zone.  The hot zone of LIFE that is.  The last month has been a whirl wind!  Some major difficulties cushioned by even larger blessings.  But today, I felt the heat crank itself down and life feels like it is right where it should be.

Looking back over this last month, I see that I automatically practiced a habit I have been cultivating and teaching about for the last several years…. self-care.  In times of family loss, such as the losses I have faced this last month, self-care can be a balancing act.  Throw in the responsibility of keeping up with the current of work, bills, feeding the cats (and an unexpected visit to the vet), fixing a broken a/c, and whatever else might fall into the hafto category (even the hafto’s you wanna do), and self-care might easily take a back seat!

But I think I did self-care like a pro!

One way I did that was to postpone the drawing for the Blog GIVE-ersary Giveaways.  Yep, the day I was to do the drawing was the day the heat blasted on.  But now with today looking chill compared to that, I gathered up the names, and did the drawing.

And the results are….. (druuuummmmm rooolll pleeeeeeze!)

The Labyrinth Touch drawing is going to Grace from Wild Pomegranate Press.

Jessica from Wild Healing will soon be receiving the Fairy Bookmark.

Phoenix Nucleus will be getting the Rainbow Skull Cuff.

As I wrap-up the giveaway, I want to thank everyone who joined the drawing. I had fun sharing my art with you. I also want to thank those who have supported Art of Collecting Yourself over the last year. What a magical thing, a blog! For me the magic comes in the awesome connections…and that means YOU! Thanks for being my gift this year!
