Great Gift Idea.... and it's FREE!

Money is tight for me... as usual...lol
But I found a great way to give gifts this year without paying a fortune.

I am making my own "Pringles Can" personalized for those I love!

What is so exciting about making a Pringles Can..? lol
Well for starters.... IT IS FREE!

....You can upload your own images and customize it to fit the personality of the recipient!

....You can print your can label and tape it to a can of "Pringles"! Cost is Under $2.00 for the can of chips. lol

....Best of all, nothing says The Holidays like a Home Made gift! Made with love!

So, here is the first can I made for Jesse Sinatra! You can vote for it if you like it, and start making your own too.

If you do create your own design, Pringles will Donate $1.00 to The Children's Miracle Network, a non-profit organization that raises funds for children's hospitals across North America!

Pop Art: vote for my design

How I got a FREE Jack LaLane Power Juicer!

If you’re new to how “the law of attraction” works, this post might help you understand.

Here is a very simple tool to help you manifest what you want in your life.

1. Be specific in what you want or need and why.

2. Visualize how you feel having received it.

3. Be thankful for receiving it.

4. Ask for it, post anywhere asking for it, and always “thank you” in advance!

Here is one example of what I have manifested using this technique…

1. Up late one night I got hypnotized by an infomercial- The Jack La Lane Power Juicer!

I decided I wanted a Juicer so I could start living more healthy, and as a support tool for my weight loss goal.

How I asked for it:

I posted in Craigslist asking, if anyone had an inexpensive Juicer they no longer needed to please let me know.

I searched for one on EBAY… visualizing how happy I would be using it. The prices were way out of my price range, but I did not focus on that.

I thought about all the recipes I would use and visualized myself putting the fresh fruits and veggies through it.

I checked my email a few times, had received some replies, but they wanted too much money.

A few weeks passed-
I checked my email and to my surprise someone had offered me a Juicer for “FREE.” She said it was her in-laws and they used it one time. She left it on her porch for me to pick up.
When I got it, I could not believe my eyes. It was the top of the line Jack Lalane Deluxe Juicer! Brand new, in the box with the recipe books and support tools to go with!

I thanked the Universe over and over as I drove my new juicer home, as soon as I got home I emailed the lady who gave it to me, expressing my deepest appreciation!

An Unexpected Halloween Treat!

This Halloween I had the distinct pleasure to take my 2 ½ year old daughter Trick or Treating! She was a hot pink and black spotted cat and I was a hot granny! My 20 year old son, mom and great friend Jesse Sinatra accompanied her on this 1st Halloween outing.

What made this event so special to me was being there “In the present” for the entire evening! Unlike last year, in which I hid us from the spirit of Halloween. Thanksgiving and Christmas as well, were held hostage by my broken heart. I  had focused my attention on what we "didn’t have" that would make the holidays wonderful.

This Halloween I had no thoughts of  “mommy and daddy" should be here together.
I was living in the moment with my daughter and my family. The delight in her eyes receiving candy from happy neighbors, her genuine gratitude for those tasty treats was powerful enough to keep me grateful for what I have in my life.

This Halloween I learned that I CAN be a single mom again, and be at peace with it!
Ever since I had my son at the age of 17, my life’s dream was to find us a home with a “daddy.” I missed so much of his beautiful moments growing up because I was preoccupied with what we did not have in our life!
Jump forward 18 years later, I’m married and have a brand new baby girl- I’m 35 years old, and telling everyone how this time I’m doing it the “right way.” Well, guess what I learned this past year?

The only right way is right NOW, the present moment. Husbands, friends, neighbors, etc will most likely come and go in your life- cherish the moments you have with them, but don’t dwell on the fact you don’t have them in your life today.
Dwelling in what you don’t have is your ENEMY- it will invade your personal space and block the beauty of the present moment from you.
What I fortunately learned this past year was that even through great heartache, betrayal, deceit, rejection and loss, I can STILL be happy right now, this moment.

I no longer allow my mind to wander with endless hopes of being in love to the man I married, raising a beautiful family, and growing old together. So long you “Leave It to Beaver” happiness thieves!
I’m content and at peace TODAY. I’m a single mom, again 20 years later, and I LOVE it. I’m back where I started- at home with my mom, this time I love being here.

I’m living month to month and I don’t have an ounce of worry. I’m grateful for a second chance at learning what is most important in life.

A veil of expectations to arrive in my life in order to make me happy have been lifted. Happiness does not revolve around what I don’t have, it IS right now- living in my present moment, fully and appreciative of what is my life right now.
