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).
My girls are still not at school, we will start the 5th week of teachers’ strike and the light at the end of this tunnel is nowhere to be seen (I kindly invite you, if you feel called to, send some positive energy so it resolve as soon as possible), so not a lot of art is being made right now and I miss it like crazy !
In this whirlwind, I take this time just for me, and writing it here helps on where I put my focus, where I put my energy.
This week, I am thankful for:
- Time on the phone with my bro Thomas
- My husband, and his love and help
- Smoothies for dinner
- The tv show Grimm
- All the sushi and agedashi tofu I have had in the past three weeks
- White sage, magical oils, and gemstones
- Wearing my wedding rings again at my fingers (lost a lot of weight, they were slipping, so I have been wearing them around a chain for months)
I usually love September… back to school with new supplies, excitement of new beginning, my birthday, still Sunshine and not quite too rainy yet…
Well, this year is different. The BC teachers are on strike, have cut last school year from its last two weeks and there is no back to school date as of today… so I have two girls to keep busy (thank you Universe for friends in the neighboorhood !).
September is the end of Summer, and at the same time the beginning of a new cycle, welcoming Fall. This is always a month of personal celebration as it is the end of a year and beginning of a new one for me, I love birthdays in general. Time for me to cast new dreams and wishes and surrender them to the Universe, trusting that what is for my Highest Good will manifest itself.
My time in the Studio is limited but it allows me to cherish each second I spend in there with my music on, my special altars, and my paints. Playing, trusting, allowing. There is something big shifting and as always, it comes with a great deal of resistance on my end.
I am gathering questions for the third episode of my creative vlog *Scraps of Life* so if there is anything you would like me to answer or talk about, please leave me a comment. I’m open and you know that speaking my Truth(s) is part of my path, don’t be shy.
Tonight is the last Super Full Moon for a while. She is already big and very shiny in the sky. She makes me utterly happy, it is hard to explain. Today, she is in Pisces and makes everything more emotional and… watery. Gathering my witchy things and trying to sort what my desires truly are so I can map them.
What have you been up to lately ? What are your wishes for this September ?
Hello Hello !
It is with a bit
lot of nervousness that I am finally sharing with you my promo video for my class, Soul Deck.
I will share very soon the faq so you’ll know what to expect in more details.
I will open registrations within the next two weeks <3
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.

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.
