Enchanted Egyptian Beauty

Hey there, everyone! Remember all the years in the past,  when I decided to sell copies of the Egyptian Eye? I decided to sell the copies of my Egyptian Eye again this year. Here is a poem about it.

Triangular prisms sprout rainbows
From the tip of a triangle, triangles peak everywhere
Amazing colorful teeth pointing toward a catchy circle
It is an Egyptian Beauty!

I hope you enjoyed my poem!


About the Egyptian Eye:

I made this Egyptian Eye masterpiece when I was young. (I can’t remember what date I finished it and started it). Camilla mentioned that it looked like an Egyptian Eye. So the name became Egyptian Eye. I used the Egyptian Eye drawing in 2010 for raising money for getting to the conference in San Antonio, TX. I decided that it went so well that I did it for the conference last year in Salt Lake City, UT. It was a great success last year and I wanted to do that idea again this year for San Antonio. Find out more at http://lilliandarnell.com/lillians-art/ for the pricing. Thanks to all of you got a copy of the Egyptian Eye.


 

About Me:

I am the artist of the Egyptian Eye. I am a soon to be abstract artist of abstract rocks, paintings, and drawings. Find out more about about me in my About Lillian page. Thank you!

Jealous Crayons

Hey there, everyone! I wrote Emotions With Animals: Jealous ParrotsAngry Candy StoryEmotions With Animals: Angry Ducks,  A Sad Princess StoryEmotions With Animals: Sad CatsA Happy FairyHappy DogsA Mindful Mermaid Story, and Mindful Goslings. I hope you enjoy my crayon story!

Once upon a time, a crayon named Brick was almost always jealous of his twin Periwinkle Strawberry Star ever since Periwinkle was born. One day, their parents called Indigo and Violet thought they should find a plan to stop the jealousy.

So they called, asked, walked, explored and traveled. Finally, they found a crayon named Blueberry Midnight Indigo. The trio crayons headed back to their colorful home. Indigo and Violet called Brick when they got home. Violet pretended to adopt Blueberry. Indigo pretended to tell Brick,”Periwinkle has been sent away.”

Over the next few days, Brick got to know Blueberry. Little did she know, that Indigo and Violet were with Periwinkle who was still in the colorful home. Soon a year passed since Brick had been jealous and Brick had become a great friend (good fake sibling also) to Blueberry.

One day, Violet and Indigo thought it was about time that Brick knew the truth. So Violet and Indigo told Brick the truth and showed Periwinkle who explained she had been in her colorful red and blue room while Indigo and Violet had visited her every day.

So Brick apologized to Periwinkle for being jealous about Periwinkle’s name. Periwinkle told her brother that she could change his name to Atomic Brick Red. Brick loved it and from that day forward he was Atomic. As for Blueberry, he married Periwinkle. Atomic Brick and Blueberry became brothers in law. If you look closely, you can hear the new trio laughing, talking, and having fun.

I hope you enjoyed my crayon story! Tune in next Friday for the next round of Emotions With Animals. Also, don’t forget to check out Camilla’s website at Mindful Musings.

Emotions With Animals: Sad Cats

Hey there, everyone! Welcome back to Emotions With Animals. These posts are to help with learning purposes, animal lovers, and to help with emotions. I recently posted Mindful GoslingsA Mindful Mermaid StoryHappy Dogs, and A Happy Fairy.

Cats yowl and protects itself by wrapping his tail, crouching low, holding ears in a fearful or cautious manner, and glum whiskers.

People sometimes make noises like cats do when they’re sad. People try to protect themselves by forcing the tears into a lump in the throat. People will be silent and thinking. The people will have a sad smile, half smile, or sad face.

Here’s some tips of how not to be sad if you feel like you are sad.

It’s okay to be sad. You don’t have to be happy unless you want to get out of the sadness stage.

Find something that makes you laugh. Look at someone who’s hilarious to you, smile, read something, watch something, or draw something funny.

Keep in mind that I post Emotions with Animals every Friday. Look for my weekly emotion story!

Also, don’t forget to check out Thomas‘s blog post on his website. It’s about Thomas selling copies of his painted rocks. If you wish, go and buy a rock or 2. Find out more details at the link above.  Check out Camilla’s blog at Mindful Musings and she’ll give you more emotion tips and anything.

A Happy Fairy

Hey there, everyone! I recently wrote Happy DogsMindful Goslings, and A Mindful Mermaid Story. I write these stories to go on with the emotion stories.

Once upon a time, there lived a flower fairy who was almost always happy. Her name was Lilac L. (L. stands for Lily) Jane like a flower fairy. She was very happy with her life for a long time. One day while Lilac was fluttering around, she overheard a fairy saying,” Hey, be nice!” and surprisingly Lilac burst into tears. When she calmed down, she decided that she will talk it through with the fairy who had said, “Be nice!” in such a mean voice.

So she set off to find the fairy but the fairy found her first. The fairy said,”I figured you overheard me, so I tried to find you but I couldn’t. Anyway, that was my fairy cousin I was talking to. Do you want to be fairy friends? “. Lilac decided the fairy’s voice was so calm and kind that she went ahead and said yes. From that day forward, Lilac could be found with her fairy friend every day at 3:00pm. Of course, she stayed happy and never burst into tears again. If you listen hard, you might be able to hear Lilac and her fairy friend every day at 3:00pm.

Hope you enjoyed my story. Visit Camilla’s website called Mindful Musings to see more helpful blog posts.

Happy Dogs

Hey, there! I recently wrote Mindful Goslings and if you want to, check the linked blog post out. I also wrote A Mindful Mermaid Story if you also want to check it out. This post is to show some people to be kind, happy, and fun. It’s also to get some fun facts and info.

Happy dogs like to lick you and smell you. Dogs also like to wag their tail when they like you. The dogs also try to cheer you up too.

People are more harder to be happy because they don’t accept looking in the current moment instead of the past or future. When they’re happy, the people seem more cheerful. Here’s some suggestions on how to be happier:

Do a grateful exercise: Gratefulness brings the attention away from distress and other opposites of happy. It brings the attention forward to happiness.

Stop looking for happiness: Realize it is in you already.

Learn To Connect With And Accept Emotion: Here’s how to connect with and accept emotions. Say to yourself repeatedly, I accept emotions. While saying that, ask yourself where you feel that emotion and focus and breathe in that area.

Learn And Practice Mindfulness: Going out in nature can help you learn and practice mindfulness. Check my blogpost about mindful goslings to find out more about how you can be mindful.

Meditation: Meditate every day. If you want, do some intense meditation. Otherwise, stick with easy or moderate meditation.

Mindful Goslings

Hey, there! My blog post is to help  most people see that animals can be mindful at times. This blog post is especially for animal lovers or pet lovers. I recently wrote Happy Dogs, and A Mindful Mermaid Story.

You have to be calm and very quiet to approach baby geese. If you get loud and perhaps angry, they would just hiss at you or follow you.

If you were meditating, you’d want quiet and soothing environment around you. If you have any disruptions, you’d explode like a volcano or you’d lose your temper (like hissing and chasing you).

Mindfulness is good and very simple. Here’s some ideas that I’d like to share with you:

Reading: Try reading a calm book for a change.
Look in Nature: Focus on nature.
Coloring: Coloring will help you keep your mind sharp.

Here’s some ideas from the Internet:

Meditation will help clear your mind.
Breathing will help you feel better.

Here’s some ideas from Camilla Downs:

Egyptian Eye Painting For A Special Cause

I have decided to sell prints of my artwork, Egyptian Eye, to help me and my family go to the 18p- conference at Salt Lake City this July 2015. The 18p- conference means I get to see my 18p- friends, traveling, getting a lot of exercise, finding new restaurants, and exploring around the city. I want to help pay for our hotel room and gas as we get to drive this year since it’s so close. It’s in a different location every year. You can learn more about chromosome 18 differences by going here.

Around August 1, 2015, we will donate 15% of profits to Demi’s Difference. Demi is a chromosome 18 friend who passed away unexpectedly in December 2014. Her family created this wonderful nonprofit to spread kindness, love and joy to others. Here’s the Egyptian Eye:

Please note that I came up with the idea and Camilla helped me by scanning the Egyptian Eye. Camilla also suggested donating a portion to Demi’s Difference.

We will leave the price you pay up to YOU! To cover the cost of the 8 X 10 print and mailing, we suggest at least a love offering of $15 ($20 with shipping). Ultimately, it’s up to YOU!! We’ve given you NINE price options below. Just click on the arrow to choose. We’ll place an order every Friday.
