Friday Finds: Calendars to keep you current, from Zazzle!

It's still Friday, and with the New Year rapidly approaching I thought this would be a good time to show off some of the fabulous calendars available at Zazzle - my favorite P.O.D. site! You can find calendars with landscapes and florals, art from classic to vintage and modern, adorable animals of all species, and many more themes to suit your mood. You can also customize the date range and number styles, in case you don't like the one the artist has selected (I prefer the large numbers on my calendars so I can see 'em from a distance, lol). The calendars are available in three sizes, and I can tell you that the HUGE 14x22" size is perfect for making a visual statement on your wall. I get at least one Zazzle calendar every year. Here are some of my current picks:

December 2012 intuitive energy forecast: The Circle


As we enter the last month of the year, dear readers, let's draw together in a circle of fellowship and light and love and healing. Our energy for the month is The Circle:

A Circle of stones, from Jan4insight Handmade Gallery

The Circle is the gift of participation and unity. Starting with a sense of our own completeness, we beam our light outward to illuminate others. As they beam back to us, the light goes round and round until the whole circle - of family, friends, lovers, you name it - shines like One. Just as we each contain the whole within us, we each can serve as part of the Whole.

Major themes for this month include how we express ourselves to others and show off our creativity. There's a hint of needing validation and praise at this time. On a deeper level, we're able to claim our natural leadership and authority. By staying centered in the heart, we can become "powerful beyond measure."

Intuitive Forecast for Mercury Retrograde and the U.S. Election

By this time tomorrow night, we may be getting some of the returns from the 2012 Election. But will it be over by the time we political afficionados (okay, junkies) finally fall into bed? Sadly, maybe not. That may be because at 4:04 pm Mountain Time - or 6:04 pm on the east coast, with polls still open - Mercury goes Retrograde. I pulled out my cards to get some insight into the intuitive energy patterns for both this Mercury Retrograde cycle, and the U.S. election:

Right now, dear readers, we are overlighted by the Star of Change. This is a basic universal energy that supports making way for growth and progress. Change has certainly been a rallying cry for a large segment of our voters, and a campaign motif used by President Obama in the 2008 election. This President, imo, understands the nature of Change. Look at this selection of quotes from his recent campaign speeches:

We know what change looks like. And what he’s selling ain't it. Giving more power to the biggest banks is not change. Another $5 trillion tax cut favoring the wealthy -- not change. Refusing to answer questions about the details of your policies until after the election, that's definitely not change. That's an old trick. Ruling out compromise by pledging to rubber-stamp the tea party’s agenda in Congress -- not change. Changing the facts when they're inconvenient to your campaign, that's definitely not change....

We know what real change is. We know what the future requires. And we also know it won’t be easy. ... You know that I know what real change looks like because you’ve seen me fight for it. I’ve got the scars to prove it. I’ve got the gray hair to prove it. (Laughter.) And you’ve had my back in that fight. And after all we’ve been through together, we can’t give up on it now. We’ve got more work to do.

Coming up ahead of us is the Window, an energy state that supports the idea of taking a pause to observe and gain perspective. I see this as applying to us as individuals. After all of the activity leading up to the election, most of us political afficionandos (or "junkies) will need a little time to kick back and regroup before the holiday season comes upon us. Mercury Retrograde is always good time to reflect and regroup, but don't go too indolent for too long. This retrograde period ends on November 26, and you should definitely be up and moving by then!

The final energy in this forecast, and the one our Higher Self most wants us to pay attention to, is the Sea. This is a fulfillment of acceptance and enfolding. For the individual soul, it's like coming home to float in the warm, cradling sea. But on the national level - one of our candidates specifically mentioned the Sea, as I recall. Unfortunately it didn't work out too well for him:


Perhaps we are thus being given this energy to pay attention to, because it really is time to pay attention to the harm we've done to this planet, and the changes we need to make to heal it - and ourselves. And maybe, at last, we are ready!

One last word about tomorrow's celestial patterns: I've been told by those who study such things that the Mercury Retrograde as well as the positions of Jupiter and Neptune are eerily similar to election day in 2000. No, we do NOT want a replay of that disaster! And we don't have to go through it again - Retrograde patterns often bring us back to a familiar situation, just so we have the opportunity to get it right this time.

Let's do it - let's get it right! I have the strong intuition that if we can each get clarity, see the truth of the situation, and vote for our country's and our own best interests - that we will indeed get it right this time.

SOLD on Zazzle - Written with Rose ODAT Necklace

It was nice to come back from dinner on a Saturday night, open my email, and find that a nice person in MT bought a copy of this beautiful necklace from my Zazzle store!


Here's Something New: My designs on WALLPAPER at Spoonflower!

The print-on-demand publishing sites beloved by designers like myself are adding new products day and night! One of my ventures is my modest (but colorful) shop on Spoonflower, which has been strictly fabric up until now. Even though it's a small part of my design ventures, I'm always thrilled when a customer buys some of my fabric!

Spoonflower just upped the thrill potential by adding WALLPAPER to our products! I love that when you visit the page for each design, you'll get an idea of how it will look on an actual wall in relation to actual furniture. For example, here's my Southwest Megafiori design on wallpaper:



Oh, didn't I tell you I like BRIGHT colors and BOLD patterns :) Seriously, I think this bold Southwest Megafiori design would like fabulous on one wall of a family room or playroom - shades of '60s decor!

But as a customer, you can select your own pattern scale. That's why it's called CUSTOM wallpaper, and fabric too. For example, take this beautifully bright & bold Diamond Spectrum design:



Once you click that Add to Cart button, you'll get an option to Edit This Design. Then you can scale the pattern Smaller or in some cases Bigger if you want it bigger yet. The Diamond Spectrum pattern shown above can be scaled down to a foulard-like design that's every bit as beautiful:


I had fun setting my Spoonflower fabric designs to the new wallpaper configurations. Here's some more samples to whet your appetite ~

Stately and plaid-like Exotic Tiles:



Peaceful and meditative Rose-Gold Kwan Yin:


Okay, back to bold! Here's a view of my luscious green and blue Design Delirium, which can also be scaled down to a smaller, plaid-like design. Any way you scale it, the colors are fabulous:


According to Spoonflower's product description, this "Removable wallpaper is perfect for students and apartment dwellers.... Printed using high-quality, PVC-free materials and inks." And you can buy a generously-sized sample swatch of any design, so you can see how it looks in your own home. Please do stop by my WALLPAPER section and see all of my bright, bold, and custom-scalable designs!
