I just created a new product through Zazzle! This stylish yet whimsical lunchbox is a reminder to let your inner light shine, each and every day! Based on my original artwork, I hope this item will brighten up your day. The sun face is from my series of paintings called the "Solar Goddess". It would make a great gift for someone who is trying to eat better on the go or maintain a healthy lifestyle. Click here to see it!

Hi everyone, You probably don't remember, but WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY back when, I posted something about my messy art studio...that I might show you a photo of it to inspire me to clean it up. Well, that never happened! hahaha. Anyway, now I DID share a photo of it for a contest where I could win a bunch of organizational supplies. Part of the procedure was to include a photo of your art space. I must have been half asleep or something, because it just didn't occur to me that it would be on display for the public to vote on. I thought it would be only the "big wigs" in charge who would see it. Even that thought was mortifying. Then I get an email saying my entry was approved and voting has begun. EEEEK! That's when it hit me that my secret is out! So, now that it is, please don't call the Hoarders show on me....JUST VOTE FOR ME! ;) You can do so very quickly by clicking under the photo where it says "shell-rose creations studio." That will take you directly to the voting page where you click "save vote". AND, you can vote once a day until it's over! That would be so cool of you! Thank you so much! If I win, it could be the most drastic transformation and I will share more photos with you. I have big ideas for this space. My imagination is running wild and I'd love for you to join me on this journey!

I take a LOT of photos in my backyard. It’s a suburban yard…bigger than most, but still…rather urban. This morning I almost succumbed to the thought that there's nothing new out in my backyard, so why take the camera? I took it anyway.
I looked to the sky and saw this.
And, as I looked at the fascinating clouds, I saw this:
Then, a dragonfly buzzed past.
I was resigned to the the “fact” that all I will ever have here are the red ones. But, today’s dragonfly was NOT red! Isn’t it funny how a simple experience like this made me realize that life is not always what we have firmly set in our minds? There is still a reason to be hopeful …even when you are absolutely sure that things are destined to be the way you think they are or will be. I didn’t get a photo of the dragonfly, but I’m still happy to know I was wrong!
So, no matter how dreary the outlook, keep that bit of hope. Be ready to welcome new joys, no matter how small or how vast! Always hope for new-found beauty even when you least expect it! Today might just be WAY better than you expected it to be!...or....maybe tomorrow will be.
