Too Loud

Sitting in the living room and this is what’s going on?  The television is on; the laptop is open and the cell phone in on my lap.  The T.V. is blaring programming that’s trying to draw me in.   My laptop is jam packed with e-mails and junk mail that is screaming at me to open.  My cell phone light is blinking like crazy and my notifications are barking at me ALL DAY!  Facebook and Twitter are fighting for my attention.  Meanwhile my family and a table full of mail want my attention as well.  CALGONE TAKE ME AWAY!! 

Our world is SO LOUD and OVER STIMULATED that we forget how precious the silence is.  In fact as I write this the news cast is on the T.V. and my cell phone is ringing.  Why?  Why do we allow all this technology to consume our lives?  Remember how life was without cell phones, laptops, Facebook and such?  Much quieter back then wasn’t it? 

Silence brings CLARITY.  Silence allows you room to THINK.  Silence leaves you the space to LISTEN.  Silence adds FOCUS.  So if you’re looking for CLARITY, a place to THINK clearly, a space for answers to be found through LISTENING and FOCUS then you might consider turning off, logging off and shut down the technology noise. 

If you choose silence you may be surprised on how many times you go to reach for your phone, T.V. Remote, and the like!  BUT I dare you to remain in the silence.  Once the outside noise has dulled and the quiet transition has happened on the inside is when the CLARITY, THINKING, LISTENING and FOCUS can begin!

Find the silence!  It may be more valuable than the noise!

I get so inspired by the 1940's!  So much class.....I mean look at this model.....she is gorgeous!
Her red lipstick reminds me of my high school years, when all I wore was red!  It's so classic!

Here are some of my favorite inspirations......

I love, love, love, 40's Blue singers!!! So much heart and soul!

because each woman should have her special unique accessories, one of kind pieces that is special just for HER!

Every women should have their own boudoir........

This picture reminds me so much of my grandmother Espy!  She was a knock out and so classy!  Timeless!

I really want one of these mirrors with the lipstick attached!!!  Some company should start making them again!

Classy, intelligent, sophisticated, timeless, unique, whimsical, genuine.....these words and so many others is what comes through my mind when I think of "Woman"

Yours Truly,

The A21 Campaign

Imagine, if you will, your child abducted and sold into the world of sex servitude. You may never get your child back and if you did the condition of their mental and physical state would probably be grim.
It’s hard to imagine isn’t it? But it happens around the world in an alarming rate! So we at Hephzi Creations urge you to get involved by joining us in the abolishment of sex trafficking in the 21st century. Join the A21 Campaign today.

Beauty Inside

There are so many beautiful people around everywhere you look! When I say beautiful I am not talking about outter appearance that fades and doesn't last, I am talking about the type of beauty that goes beyond the surface! When you see into a person's heart and see such love, I am speechless!!! Your a gem, so shine!!!! ♥

I believe a BIG difference between ‘Creative People’ and ‘Non-Creative People’ is PRACTICE! The difference between a ‘Musician’ and a ‘Non-Musician’ is PRACTICE! The difference between a ‘Writer’ and a ‘Non-Writer’ is PRACTICE! The difference between a ‘Good Marriage’ and a ‘Great Marriage’ is PRACTICE!! The difference between ‘Low Self-Esteem’ and a ‘Wonderful Self-Image’ is PRACTICE!!! Do you get me? Do you hear me??

What are you PRACTICING? What do you want to be GREAT at? Whatever it is, takes PRACTICE!!! Your breakthrough is counting on your PRACTICE so KEEP PRACTICING!
