January 28th

“The painter has the Universe in his mind and hands.” 
― Leonardo da Vinci

This will probably turn into a relatively rambly post, so I apoligise in advance.  I know what I want to say but it might not come out right.

Anyway, at the beginning of the year I was privelaged to follow a special someone on Facebook and Bloglovin.  In fact I had been following her for a while now, no it doesn't make me a stalker, just an appreciater of creativity.  This person is Kitty Pinkstars, she describes herself as Cartoon life in a Real world and she is just a wonderfully positive person.

Well she has a beautiful Etsy Shop where her Cartoon creations come to life. 


As you can see I have bought a few things from her, personalised cards and a little stuffed Billy from Saw, this one was especially for Eveigh.

Well this year Kitty has gone a little Lucha Mad, all for her love of Wrestling and has started a Lucha Club, if you look in her shop you will be able to see a few that have been made already.

Also each month Kitty creates Lucha Positivity packs, this month was the rather ravishing Rodney Rabbetts, of which I have a pack.  I have started a positivity journal, which I am putting the stickers in and working toward my Rodney Badge! Anyway, this is really helping me toward being more positive about things.  I realised that one of the tasks for this month was to take a photo every day, I haven't managed this, but I didn't worry as I tried to find the positive in every day.

There is a group on Facebook that a few of us have joined called Kitty Pinkstars Lucha Club and there is so much positivity being banded around there that you can't help but be happy.  I try to post there most days and, for instance, the other day I wasn't having the best day, and told them so, just that I was feeling a little down, and got lots of well wishes and it made me feel not so alone.

I was telling them about #CordeliasCorrespondance when someone in the group said it would be lovely if we exhanged little letters or handmade gifts between ourselves, and it works that people who want to be in it have given their names and addresses in then we are all given a name and address and send a little pack of loveliness to them.

Today I received mine and I am truly thankful to my sender, I won't give her name as I am not sure she wants to be all advertised everywhere.


I received a little note, a Hama bead lucky horseshoe, which is excellent and is already hanging in front of my desk; some postcards from where she lives, along with a leaflet of the zoo nearby, which has one of my favourite animals on a Red Panda. A gorgeous postcard with my name and meaning, which sees me in a lovely friendly light! Some notecards, which will come in handy for #CordeliasCorrespondance and a mini jotter with colourful wooly sheep on.  Last but not least a yummy scrummy Welsh chocolate elephant, which I enjoyed immensely.

January is normally a lonely sad long month, but with all this love and joy around who can possibly be sad at all.

What has made you smile lately?
