It's All About the Shoes! Fly Tribe Blog Hop

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I’m a part of a group of creative people known as “The Fly Tribe” brought together through Kelly Rae Roberts “Flying Lessons” ecourse in 2011.

Today our blog is about:

Shoes!

For the past year I have been on a fast paced and fun creative journey. What do you need when you take a journey? Something on your feet. I’m following the footsteps (pun intended) of Dorothy of Oz and my shoe of choice is “the ruby slippers”.


 Shoes represent your “walk” - where you are and where you are going. The color - red/ruby - is the color of passion, fire, life and love. My passion for art runs through my blood like fire, and I love running my creative business. When you love something and are passionate about it, it shows in your work. The glitter on the ruby slippers are reflective. They reflect light - they SPARKLE. Four years ago when visiting Disney’s Epcot with my family, I picked up a small coin purse. It has Tinkerbell on one side and on the other side it says “I’m all about Sparkle. What a way to live; to sparkle with the passion inside of you, have it manifest in your art and attract people to it.  A few months ago, an artist friend (who didn’t know about the coin purse) actually told me that I “sparkle”. That makes me happy.

For creative people that are out there - sparkle on. Don’t let anything or anyone try to take those ruby slippers from you. Do you remember what Glenda told Dorothy when she placed the slippers on her feet? She told her to never take them off!

Thanks for stopping by today. Please leave your “footprints” below in the comments section so I’ll know you were here. Then hop on over to the next blog and check out more shoes!
