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.



(no photoshop, colours exactly as they where seen that night)

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....
Originally uploaded by Miyspirit
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!!!
