With Paint On My Hands - I Jump For Joy!

...I lovingly type out an update.  Big, big, big.  Oh, dear Big Fearless Painting.  How art thee changing my life??

First, thou art aligning me with the universe and causing simply AMAZING things to happen.  I WON.  Yes, I WON.  What, you may ask?  Only something that has the potential to send all of this changing, creative wonderfulness into laser speed.

The wonderful ladies at Kind Over Matter (Amanda & Jenn) and Carmen Torbus - the stunning creative entreprenuer cheerleading coach herself - teamed up to offer a giveaway.  A Six session scholarship for C4 (C4 = Cheerleading, Coaching, Consulting & Conspiring)...with CARMEN!  And I WON!!  I "EEEKED!!" in the car when I read the email on my phone and probably scared my hubby and kids.

She is seriously one of the most adorable, authentic, and creative individuals I've seen through the bloggy world.  Just take a look at what she has done throughout her life.  I am so so thoroughly excited!

BIG, huge, tremendous things are coming your way my lovely friends.

Second, I'm allowing my life and my creativity to flow together.  I met my sister tonight at my mother's house...and instead of plopping in front of the t.v., we painted!  We pulled all of our supplies out on the driveway amidst shade and a stunning breeze, and as the sun set, we played with colorful juicy paints sometimes amidst deep conversation and sometimes in silence.

 My sister's painting.  I wish I could show the glimmer and details...it is stunning!

Where my lady stands right now.  Not sure where she's headed, but that's ok!  
Color is a bit off...I'm not at my computer so have to do with the from-the-camera photo!

I have so much more that I get to share with my Fearless Painting tribe...and will eventually get around to posting here as well.

LIFEUNITY is what it is about, lovelies.  I'm stepping forward in my life and embracing my gorgeously flawed and sensually delicious human nature and my mysterious wondrous divine nature.  There is so much more in store.  Stay tuned....

With paint on my fingernails and hands and arms and legs, I dance around and celebrate the messy, whine-filled (thanks to the kids),  (and wine-fulled - hah!), smoochy-kiss-filled (also thanks to the kids), sometimes heartbreakingly sad, sometimes indescribably magical life of mine!

(By the way - YOU TOO can jump in on this powerful life-changing wave!  A new BIG fearless painting tribe is coming together...registration is starting, I believe, this Monday, August 9th!  Visit DirtyFootprints-Studio.com  for more updates....)

UPDATE: Immediately after I published this post the first time, I started my blog reading and discovered I WON A SECOND TIME!!  The beautiful Kathy Jordan has been offering giveaways of her new book, Becoming a Life Change Artist, which just came out ....and I WON ONE!  (I promise it's legit - she even showed the process on her blog.) :)

I've been keeping up with the amazing Dr. Jordan for quite some time and let me tell you - whatever she has to share is worth listening to.  Honest.  I cannot WAIT to dive right into this yummy book!

I am NOT GOING to sleep tonight!  I am so so so so so excited!!
