I am sorry for the break in my BIRTHDAY GIVEAWAYS!  I have been busy painting!  I am happy to say the GIVEAWAYS are continuing and in honor of going to the Society of Decorative Painters International Show in San Diego for DecoArt Next week I am doing another DecoArt Giveaway.  I am also extending my giveaways into June in order to give myself some time to announce the winners!  I will make sure to start announcing those!

May has been one heck of a month and I am excited to ring in June!  It’s been a great year and a massive thank you to ALL the amazing sponsors!  And special thanks to all of you for visiting and playing along.  This prize is another DeocoArt Media Starter KIT:

I know you love DecoArt already, right?  But show them your extra special happy with them today!

Although not all relationships are meant to be, there are no failed relationships, because every person in your life has a lesson to teach.  And the lessons you learn make YOU that much stronger.  So many people think relationships have to work to be worthwhile, because that’s what everyone tells you to want – that’s the Hollywood love story.  Of course, it’s nice when relationships stay healthy and last, but that doesn’t mean your failed relationships aren’t equally as important.  Some people you engage with will be like a mirror – people who show you things that are holding you back, people who show you the ways that don’t work, people who bring your insecurities and misjudgments to your own attention so you can change your life.”
