Though I have no formal culinary training, my mom always let me join her in the kitchen. I have always loved cooking and baking. I can still remember, as a young girl, creating my very first recipe. I had added a can of cream of chicken soup to my Ramen noodles. At the time, I thought this was absolutely genius! Not exactly a blog worthy recipe today, but you’ve got to start somewhere.
Why strawberries (a delightful summer fruit) as the focus for a winter season theme? Well I originally chose “goodies” as the theme to cover all types of holiday treats. While searching the interweb, I found a ton of potential MotD images with strawberries being used in many fun and different ways. So much so, that I felt compelled to showcase them all week instead of just one day. Enjoy!
Success, as strawberry teaches us, requires proper preparation of one’s self. How could she sustain so many at once if she weren’t properly prepared? Her habit of emerging early in spring to blossom and fruit at the very beginning of the season speaks to her preparation, so quickly does she shuck off her winter’s sleep in exchange for early spring’s fertile rush.
How prepared are we for 2017? It’s only 15 days away 🙂

My Mission: connecting with our Inner Light in delightful, inspiring ways
For me, creating mandalas is more than just coloring pretty patterns in a circle. I do it because my spiritual evolution and creativity require it of me. My mandala designs come about within an active meditative state, connected with my higher self, my spiritual guides and nature spirits.
Together, we bring into form, mandala art the allows me to re-connect with my own inner peace and joy, letting me explore and expand my own creative spirit to however far and in whatever direction I want to take it.
As part of my own spiritual journey, I encourage, and hopefully inspire, others to explore their own creativity, to help them re-connect with their own inner peace and joy. As a means to that end, I make all of my mandalas available for people to color. Why should I have all the fun?
