Wishcasting Wednesday :: What treats do you wish for?

Thanks for joining me for this week's Wishcasting Wednesday. If you'd like to join this magical circle of dreamers and doers, please visit Jamie Ridler Studios.

This week's prompt:

What treats do you wish for?

I am seriously slacking on my participation for Wishcasting Wednesday! This week Jamie asks, "Imagine the Universe is answering the door when you come to trick or treat! What do you wish she will put in your treat bag?"

Here goes:

* First, I would like this:

  But instead, I get this:

Ahh, it's not so bad. It's quite tasty, I must say. So there it is - I'm making a public declaration to keep myself accountable. I joined Jenny Craig on Monday afternoon and I'm determined to stick with it and ease myself into better health. Yea! So my first wish is that the Universe will deliver me a healthy and happy mind, body, and soul.

* Second, I wish for a winning lottery ticket or at least the winning numbers. LOL. Okay, realistically I wish to cut my expenditures on extras so that I can save more money and pay off debt. FYI Jenny Craig doesn't count as an extra but all those pre-Jenny Craig trips to Chick-fil-a do!

* I wish for the Universe to set me free of my inner critic and need to compare so that I can create art freely with abandon. Also, to find my own personal style.

* I wish to discover my north star, my calling, my purpose in life and to follow that path.

* I wish to find my soul mate.

* I wish to create a place of community with other like-minded women (and men) where we can build each other up and offer each other the support that we need. A place to belong and for others to belong.

* Finally, I wish for the Universe to deliver me a gift card for a spa package. A massage, mani, pedi, facial, hair, and makeover - the works. :-D

What I've Been Up To

I finally finished my clay pendants that I shared the before pics here. They've been baked, painted, distressed, glued, and glazed. Not too shabby!

This one was two pieces that I glued together and added some gold highlights.

This is more of a small bowl or paperweight type creation.

Here's the texture on the underside:

I love these roses! I added a touch of gold paint to make the roses pop, I mean bloom.

This is a pendant that I picked up at Michaels and added a clay base and lots of texture.

This is a quote from The House of Night book series.

I love, love, love this little birdie. I decided not to distress/age this one.

This was the very first pendant that I made hence the misshapen square. LOL.

My flower fell apart when I took it off the cookie sheet and had to glue it back together. I'm not sure what I'll do with it yet.

This one has a well in it like the pink rose one but I filled this one with Dimensional Magic and a little glitter.

I'm off for the weekend camping with the Florida Trail. Have a wonderful weekend!

Quote - Irish Proverb

Work like you don't need the money.
Dance like no one is watching.
Sing like no one is listening.
Love like you've never been hurt.
Live life every day as if it were your last.
