"You Are Enough...Just As You Are" Art Blessing Giveaway!



Life and family have been keeping me busy this fall. With another son now in his senior year and and playing on the starting line-up this football season it seems there is one event after another! We had an incredibly exciting weekend here as his team the "Union Titans" won their league championship in a nail-biting, down-to-the-wire finish and are on their way to the State Championship! So I have been overdue to peek in here on my blog and wanted to share an art blessing giveaway with you all! This altered journal highights a collage print that says "You are enough...Just as you are", bright colored jewels, shimmering butterflies, colorful fibers, and measures 4 x 8 1/2 inches. If you would like to be entered in the drawing for this journal just leave your contact info in the comment section! If you would like to share this giveaway with a link on your blog, let me know and I will add your name twice to the drawing! Check back and on Monday, Nov. 16th I'll post the Art Blessing winner!

NEW TREASURES AVAILABLE ON HEALING EXPRESSIONS WEBSITE: With the holidays approaching, I have been quietly working in my studio and creating encouraging, inspirational gifts for my website (many inspired by beautiful, digital collage images by Batya S.)as well as my upcoming Holiday Open House (details to come soon). I had a meaningful time this past weekend sharing art at a recovery conference called Betrayal Redeemed where several of the new items below were available. I am looking forward to seeing what else is inspired in the studio for the season. I am feeling such calmness, peace, confirmation and anticipation these days for the next steps of my own personal and creative journey. You can click on the link below each item to see more images!

Prayer Cards w/Gift Tin


Inspirational Acrylic Art Cubes


Original Charm Bracelets


Healing Journey Card Sets


5x7 Collage Designs in Acrylic


Healing Words Glass Pendants (over 20 words to choose from) and Inspirational Magnets w/ Gift Tin

Thanks so much for letting me share these pieces. I hope that this day finds you in a good place, breathing in the present moment and willing to reach out to those you love...to risk being cared for...and to offer care to someone who crosses your path. Each of us has much to give and to release of ourselves as the holidays approach and so many will be in need of the simple and often free gifts we possess.

Every fall I think of this song and thought you might be blessed by it too. It always moves me deeply.....

Please pause the music playing on my blog on the lower right sidebar before listening to the video...

Lani, sweet spirit ~ Your continued spiritual growth, contentment & gratitude, comes right through your expressed words - and, as always, they *INSPIRE* and *ENCOURAGE*. As the soothing and affirming song and video in your post expressed, each season is filled with God's creativity and purpose. It is clear that your new work with its spirited, comforting, vibrant artistry (those colors!) - in this, your next, new creative season, continues to reflect the purpose you have listened for and heard. How special it has been to watch each of your creative seasons over these past few years. It continues to bless me, for which I am so grateful! Hugs ~~ Laurie

Hi Lani!
I would love to win your giveaway!
Although, I won´t feel bad if I don´t, because I just got a beautiful gift from my friend Michelle, that you made! Lucky me! A lovely wooden house with stampings on it. I´ve seen them at her house too, and they are just lovely! You should make more of those! Don´t you sell them on your ETSY-shop? They are great!
I mentioned you and the house on my blog:

It's always a joy to read your blogs. Nichole Nordeman is one of my favorite singers! I had to sing that song at a funeral several years ago, so it always makes me reflective about life when I hear it. Great message, though.

I would love to be entered into your giveaway for the beautiful art journal! Thank you for your generosity!

:) Michelle

mare journal,since the very first onset of my disease.the special pkg.,you sent me, i have placed them in a large frame in my bedroom.i won't miss another conference,no matter what it takes to get there.i look at that frame of your art,everyday and night,it helps me to survive all of this.i can't ever thank you enough...i would love to win your journal,it would be my dream journal.it's too beautiful to be a nightmare journal.i told all of this on the blog so that others could hear what you did for me,you are a wonderful artist as well as a wonderful person. maybe, one day iour paths will cross and we could see each other..just so you know i have added you to my hero list!my dgtr., who is also my best friend thinks you're great as well. thanks lani

What a beautiful journal. I love your work and keep several of your ATC's scattered about the house - always sweet reminders through the day for me to be strong and healthy. I'd love to include this journal in my days also.

Dear Lani,
What a healing touch your blog was today. I live in the Northwest too and am praying to save a 600 year old fir snag and ecosystem plus 10,000 families from the destruction 500 kilovolt power lines have brought into their lives. Please hold us up in prayer. I can see you have a deep spiritual gift. You touched my heart deeply with you words and work.
Many Blessings,
Erin

I love how your heart and God's heart shine through your artwork. Oh, to truly grasp that truth through and through. I'm in process with it, and I'd love that little reminder to look and and keep letting it sink into the deepest parts. Blessings to you for the ways you share your gift and your heart with all of us!
