Sharing the Love #8

Happy Monday beautiful Beans !

I know I usually post it on Fridays but I really wanted to share a little Love on this Monday. I know this is a difficult day for a lot of people, me included sometimes. But I decided to see it as a new beginning instead of dreading it, and it works !


I paint faces. And I love exploring them, deeper and deeper, and learn new way to express what the Nixies have to tell. This fantastic class by my Kindred starts today.

Speaking of class and Kindred, I am having so much fun exploring my sweet side with this other class (combining them is good for me).

Keeping a «Smile File» to fight the Gremlins that come when someone unsubscribe from my list or unfollow me somewhere ? Hell yes !

Temper us in fire, and we grow stronger. When we suffer, we survive.
I did it, two weeks to read the 725 pages of this monstruous but amazing book that concludes the series very well, in my opinion.

I have the book in French and my daughter, who will enter 2nd in a couple of weeks, read it all by herself. I even gifted it and the memory cards to my niece. 50% off the book is a really sweet sale not to be missed, imho.

I am pretty sure I was Japanese in a previous life. I love this blog and refer now and then to this useful japanese pantry article.

I am very picky when it comes to chocolate anything. Finding the perfect brownie is one of my culinary quests. After the sweet potato brownies, I just tried the avocado brownies.

Yesterday we picked up my borther-in-law from France, he is with us for his yearly visit. He comes every year for Maelynn’s birthday, he had not missed one in six years.

Today, she turned 9.

My Kindred Micki told me «don't forget it is 'your' day too, it's your 'happy giving birth day'. So many people forget to celebrate that part

There is a lot going on in me when it comes to this first birth, but this is another story.

She received calls from the family in France, from her best friend who suddenly moved back to Québec a few months ago and is now celebrating with her neighbor friend.

I am about to start cooking what she requested: alfredo noodles. Then we will go to Granville Island and who knows where else.

Blessed, we are.

Gratitude Friday, from the Darkness

Welcome on a new edition of my weekly ritual, Gratitude Friday (if you are not familiar with it, please go read how it came up and what it is about).

Oh my… what a difficult week it was. Darkness loomed in my heart, as it sometimes happens, unfortunately. Well, it was not fun to be around me in the past week (and I did not want to face anyone, which was hard for my kids and husband).

Willow, Nixie by Nolwenn Petitbois

This week, I am thankful for:

  • People reaching out to me
  • Writing in my diary again
  • Crystals
  • Prayer
  • Symbols that mean something to me
  • Very long very hot baths, even in the middle of the day
  • Finally getting things done to launch Soul Deck
  • Not giving up when I really feel pushed in that direction
  • Waking up every morning, alive
  • Sunshine
  • DDP Yoga with my husband
  • Connecting, especially the days I just want to be alone in the Dark

And you, what are you thankful for today ? Share in the comment so we can acknowledge and celebrate with you.


Transition, Greatness & Guided, new Colorful Chaos abstract paintings available


Creating for this series, way out of my usual art, is a lot of fun. I usually paint for Colorful Chaos before an actual painting session, each is at least 3 different layers that need to fully dry before adding the next one, so it can’t be done in one sitting.

I have an obsession with symbols *just see my Pinterest board dedicated to them and you’ll understand what I mean by obsessed*, and these three new paintings in the series have a few more or less obviously added. Because it makes me happy, because it helps with the purpose of positive energy.

They were created on 6x8” wood panel, cradled (so ready to hang if you want).

Layers layers layers, and lots of texture as well, is what you’ll discover :)

I invite you to go to my shop to see more pictures of each.

What is Greatness to you ? I’d love to know.

Find it right here.

«Transition» may be my favorite of the entire series, to day. There is a very special energy that comes from it. It will add this je ne sais quoi to any space you would embellish with it, trust me.

Find it right here.

«Guided» is the perfect reminder that you are watched upon, even when you feel like nobody listens to you, that nobody HEARS you. Don’t stop believing, knowing.

Find it right here.

You can, of course, also find the rest of Colorful Chaos that has not found a home yet. You won’t be disappointed.

PSS: some products, such as pillow covers, clocks, mugs... from these paintings are now available in my Society6 shop. Go check it out, you will love the possibilities !


Gratitude Friday, I am Peace

Welcome on a new edition of my weekly ritual, Gratitude Friday (if you are not familiar with it, please go read how it came up and what it is about).

I just finished following a Global Meditation, lead by Deepak Chopra with Gabrielle Bernstein and India Arie. A meditation for Peace. Peace inside of us, expanding to our close friends and family to eventually reach each and every one in the world and beyond.

I am peace

In the past two weeks, since that very weird and emotionally difficult Friday, I have received many unexpected blessings. I invite you to take a few minutes to reflect on your own blessings, what did the Universe shower you with that made you feel good, happy ? What made you smile this week ? And share in the comments so we can celebrate with you.

Today, I am thankful for:

  • New gems ans new magical oils sent to me by two Sabbatical Sisters.
  • Catching up and teaming up with my darling Kindred Nancy. And for the picnic at the beach with our two families.
  • Audiobooks and music while I work.
  • Progress made on my mini-class Soul Deck.
  • My husband’s will to get in better shape and having found something we do together to become our best selves.
  • Soccer Camp organized by our friends and neighbors’ church our girls are attending this week. For open-mindness and community.
  • Danielle Walker’s book, Against All Grain. A blessing in this new nutritional path I am on now.
  • My Mom.
  • Breakthroughs. Healing. Faith.
  • the Sun’s warmth on my skin.
