Remembrance Day Tribute ~ Hudson Parade!



A Day of Remembrance
..... The Remembrance Day Parade which took place yesterday in Hudson, Quebec Canada, was indeed a day to remember by all. Their Spirits live on!

This is a most touching capture, because as I write this I am most chocked up.
In this photo Hayden Paterson (my son) is showing Kaiden Parkinson and me the poppy the cubs made for him while he was away due to his father's passing away just a few weeks ago, after a long battle with cancer. I was most touched by the cubs own tribute and proud at the same time that people have big hearts and such compassion, proud of the boys. Bob Parkinson was a dear Soul, a wonderful Husband to Lianna, a father of five, in a few words, a great man, also a well respected council member of the Hudson Community. He made his mark in many of us. His Spirit will live on. As such as all those who where here before us, and for us.

Let us remember so we don't forget. Remember the men and women who fought for our country, for they are our heroes! We have all that we have because of theme we are blessed and fortunate to live in such a wonderful beautiful and free country because of theme...Thank you!...and peace to all! The cubs made this beautiful wreath with by cutting poppy flower shapes in craft foam. I thought it was most creative. Wonderful creation and tribute by the Cavagnal Cubs pack. Great job boys ;)

Miy Paris Theme Holiday Decorations


Miy Christmas Special Feature

Miy Paris Theme Holiday Decorations;

My inspiration for my Holiday Paris theme decor was from my childhood nostalgic
Christmases spent at my grandmother's house.

The decorations that I created for my holiday theme table, even if they seem quite elaborate, can easily be created with very few craft supplies, available in arts and crafts and fabric stores and many various remnants from around your home. Make your holidays special, personalized it with style, make it yourself!

Miy Halloween Costumes ~ Zena Costume just added to the Halloween Special Feature


MIY Halloween Costumes for Adults

I love Halloween! It's the one time of the year you can really have fun creating an outfit. I do not believe one has to spend a lot of money to make real creative costumes. I usually create my costume theme based around the boot style I want to wear. I love boots! Then I went through the stuff that I already had and decided
to make this Zena outfit. It didn’t cost me anything to make this costume, except for some time, which I must admit was lots of fun to make!

Need some Halloween costume inspirations ~ I just posted and added the Zena outfit ~ come visit MIY special Halloween costume feature! Wishing you all happy Halloween creations! Maddylane

With all that is going on in the world with the economy these days; it is now even more important then ever to count our bountiful blessings rather the dwell on the things that we do not have.

Do the opposite, the more we are grateful for what we do have to more we are sending out good energy into the world around us. Thanksgiving is for giving thanks
for our many blessings....if we all did this everyday, the world would be a much better place, ! When you say "I Give Thanks" with genuine gratitude.... You will feel its joy instantly....for these are gifts of true of blessings
Happy Thanksgiving...Blessings and most of all enjoy! Maddylane

Sunset for Two...


Sunset for Two...



I dedicate this Glorious Golden sunset to two of our dear fallen stars and icons of the 70's (a big part of my teen years, for dance, music and style)...to Michael Jackson and Farrah Facett

With a sad heart I bid you both Farewell.... and say Thank you for having shared your dear spirits with us in very special ways, your joyful memories will remain as imprints upon our Souls and your legacies will live on as a burning flame in our hearts.

Summer Outdoor Decor ~ Canada Day Lanterns




Miycreations Project article and photographs
by MaddyLane

“Kick off the Summer with Maple-leaf Lanterns”
Outdoor summer decor ~ Garden lanterns

Celebrate Canada’s birthday with family picnics, barbecues, and fireworks. To
add to the national celebration, why not show off our maple leaves with pride
and make festive leaf lanterns? Maple-leaf shapes are fashioned out of clay,
decorated with leaf imprints and then placed around plain glassware, votive holders, items that you already have and transform them into spectacular summer patio lanterns. Make it a family activity and get the kids involved, its a super cottage or day camp activity!

Perfect summer night decor to enlighten your patio all summer long!

Happy Father's Day....


Happy Father's Day....

Happy Father's Day....

My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.
Fathers Day Quote by: Jim Valvano

Growing up being the middle of 5 children, I thought I was the forgotten child, so I became very independent and self sufficient and lived my life as such. My father was a very quiet man and a very brilliant man, who didn’t really say much but when he did, I not only listen, I remember. A few years ago at my grandmother (my mother’s mother) funereal, after I gave the eulogy my father came up to me with a teary eye and frog in his throat and he said something to me that I’ll never forget. Actually he said this to me years ago as well but in a different way but I did not know what he meant until this moment. Years ago as a young teenager he had said to me, “You can choose to be your worst enemy or your own best friend… its up to you, its your choice!”
That day, he said this to me (I don’t remember the exact words, but it was something like this)…, I’m so proud of you, I have watched from afar over the years because you have not let me in, but glad to see that you have chosen to become your own best friend. He then went on to say that when I was up there on the podium, it had touched him deeply it gave him chills because he said he had a vision of me becoming a motivational or spiritual speaker, because he said I glowed… I looked at him in total amazement and sock, (I remember think that was really an unusual thing to say to someone) yet I was so touched by what he had just shared with me from the heart, I will never forget… for this is the ultimate a father can say to his daughter. Je t’aime Papa, and thank you for always believing in me, even when I didn’t ..you did... how blind was I not to see the love that was there all along. and I can only hope to be able to pass on these life lessons to my own children)

To all my flickr friends that are father’s…God bless you all, hugs...Enjoy your day!

MIY Spring Fashion Recrafted ~ Enchanted Fashions



The MIY $5.00 "All Dress"Make it and wear it .....From Spring to Fall
For all occasions from beach dress, casual, to cocktail and party dress!!! One dress ~ the MIY all season dress

This is a fun kind of post. This spring and summer before you even step foot in a fashion store, I invite you to first go through your wardrobe and have a look at what you already have from last summer and even treasure from years ago. You will be amazed on how easy it is to revamp your spring summer fashions with style and color. A great way to revamp and revitalize your wardrobe with a fresh new look, is to paint on it. At style, designs and yes colours.

I took a simple cotton summer dress painted on some flowers. Total cost $5.00. It’s an “All Dress”, meaning that I can wear several different ways from beach dress to cocktail dress, from spring right into the fall. I keep posting the different variations of this dress throughout the spring summer and fall seasons. I’ll show you basic ways you can accessorize a simple dress to create different looks with it. From the spring Enchanted Maiden look, Summer evening Tango fiesta etc….

Now the funny part of this post is that I did a mini How-to do it MIY fashion video of how to paint on your fashions. I would often do some of my son for the kids pages. So I turned the camera around for this summer fashion series.

Lately I’m working on a business plan to recycle all the MIY columns that I have done over the last six years. And when I met with a business councilor he had a very good question for me. He asked me what kind of lifestyle do I want to go with my business plan. I had to think about that one. To realize that, no I don’t want an overscheduled life like Martha, or Debbie Travis. I like what I do and I want to keep doing it, I’m just doing it differently. I don’t want to do a big TV production, nor do I feel like driving into town to do that. Since I give many lectures and demos, I thought I would add miy how-to videos to my website. Here’s the first one of the series, show how to paint on cloths. No it not about beauty its about energy, I shot it myself, I did one take and it was a lot of fun, and YNW that’s how I like it. It’s about as being real. It like inviting you into my home to show you privately to make and do things. Making things with what you have to look your best for less.

This is a new series I’m working on. Pictures on instructions to be posted later this week.
Let me know what you think. Have a look at the MIY how to paint on your fashion video! The video may take a minute or two to load up depending on the type of computer you have. I’ll have to work on finding a simpler posting format.

Since it’s a very cold and rainy spring here this year, one can wear this basic $5.00 dress in different ways, with a jacket for evening, with a fringe vest for fun wear, and even with a big sweater for those cooler evenings at the cottage. I’ll be posting the different variations throughout the season….Keep visiting!!!
