Just in time for Valentine’s Day

Merry Christmas, everyone. I’d like to thank all of you for appreciating the hard (yet joyful) work I’ve put into my creative ventures over the years and for helping to make this year an exciting and prosperous one. May you have a healthy and prosperous holiday and all the new year to come!

As you can see, I’m already uploading St. Valentine’s Day designs on my LeisureLane1 Redbubble shop. The mug makes a perfect seasonal or all year round gift to yourself or someone you love. There are quite a few products to choose from with this design.

Postcards, Note cards, Stickers and more available

I’ll be posting more designs in the future, so keep checking my shop. Thank you for stopping by today. God bless you, and…

Until next time, may happy days abound!

Hello and welcome to all who stroll by Leisure Lane today.  It’s always a pleasure to see you.

Today we’re featuring a new tag – “Kindness is Love”.  I hope to create a matching booklet.

Until next time, may happy days abound!

Happy Valentine’s Day To All, and Happy Birthday To Me!!

Yes, friends…I’m allowing myself the indulgence of bragging about my birthday.  I think birthdays are GRAND!!  I don’t think about the age as much as the celebration of  birth and Life.  Age is really timeless, but Life is where vitality is found.

I admit that I don’t always live Life to its fullest, but I’m doing the best I can, and anyway,  “to the fullest’ is a relative term.

St. Valentine’s Day is not only for romantic love – it’s just for LOVE!

For me St. Valentine’s Day is the perfect day of year to make a new year’s resolution to Love…to begin the change in one’s Life to replace the small ‘l’ love with the capital ‘L” Love.  The Love that is sincere and genuine, and that comes from the center of the heart.

Most of us awaken every morning, look in the mirror and see the things we don’t like about ourselves.  But February 14th is the perfect day to awaken,  look into the mirror and say “I Love You”.  That could be the beginning of all sorts of wonderful possibilities.  Like a pebble dropped into a pond, the ripples that go out affect the world around us.

The above image is made of numbered pictures.  The following is what they represent:

1.  Hearts are made for Loving not breaking.  To Love fully and freely from the bottom of my heart.
2.  Anything is possible with faith and God.
3.  How far I’ve come.  Leisure Lane is blossoming along with myself.
4.  When I feel like giving up ~ remember to keep my wings spread.  That’s when flight is possible.

I wish all of you a Happy Valentine’s Day.  Treat yourself to something nice.  And until next time, may happy days abound!

O, Love

O, Love

How enlivened I am when Love appears.  Sadness is but dust at my feet when Love is near.

O Love, what spark has blazed your fire?  Even the birds sing your song!
