A Bird Day with My Goddesses



                                     The Card made for Earth Goddesses Birthday!
                   
For just under a quarter of a century I've gathered to celebrate every birthday with a group of five sage women! Over the span of the last decade we started calling ourselves the goddesses...and each took on a suitable name! At one point we all worked together save one who was in the same writers group as two of us!
This is Nature Goddess, she is just shy of  64! Unbelievable!! She looks even better now than she did four years ago! As an avid long distance biker/ hiker, she's outdoors every moment she gets!  Her home is near the beach with the most gorgeous view,  she holidays yearly in Mexico traveling all over the world whenever she can! She made the sailboat cake for our youngest Earth Goddess.
An avid birdwatcher, she  loves to race her sailboat! A decade younger than most of us she was born in the wrong era,  I think our comedic  Earth goddess would have made a great hippy!
This goddess could hold an audience as a stand up comedian, a writer or an artist with her innate humour that  often has us  in fits of laughter! So talented she has yet to tap into any of her gifts with any kind of enthusiasm!
It was very last minute that I crafted a card for Earth Goddess
knowing she loves quirky art!
This card was the perfect candidate for a digital color change  in my favorite Pixlr program! There is even a phone app for it, should you be interested!
Gypsy Goddess is an adventurous woman who does anything and everything fun! She loves to dress in costume or otherwise and celebrate anything but herself! Once she turned 50  she began boldly wearing  whimsical leggings which previously she was too timid to wear! Gypsy has a very fun bohemian flair, and the most amazing curly locks!
Constantly helping others  Gypsy has little time for herself. Yet she is a creative in every aspect of her life with the need  to exude her true artists nature! She's either baking a beautiful cakes for others, or  decorating a fancy table with leaves, candles and little characters!  She has written several yet to be published books over the years, does crafts, sews and has done a few gorgeous fun paper mache art pieces.  She's  an amazing photographer who loves the fantasy of  fairies and gnomes!

Our Faery Goddess is also a writer with several 
unpublished books. She did her first triathlon a few years ago
 and became a fitness instructor this year at 55!
Proving with lots of hard work,
dreams can come true at any age!
Often times as our dreams manifest
life throws us a curve ball. Faery is in the process
of waiting for heart surgery. You can read about
her journey here!
  Dream goddess  is an amazing florist, can
 make anything look  beautiful
with her  natural decorators eye!
She possibly missed her true calling!!
A witty generous soul, Dreamer dabbles in art, 
bakes beautiful cakes, and is a wonderful writer.
I've tried to encourage her to write a blog!
 A voracious reader Dreamer remembers 
the most interesting scientific facts about diseases! 
This wise goddess really thinks out of the box, I often
turn  to her for unique perspectives!!
 Earth Goddess, Gypsy Goddess standing, Nature Goddess, Dream Goddess, Me Love Goddess, and Faery Goddess July 16th. 

I love to celebrate these beautiful souls, other than family 
what do you love to celebrate?
 I no sooner gave this card to  Earth goddess and received 
this beautiful card packed with postcard icads that I won, 
plus a  wonderful unexpected gorgeous piece of shoe art 
that I apparently inspired  from the lovely 
Created by Sharon  at Art Inspirations!
 Daily I get so much joy out of this
beautiful art sitting on my mantle!

I love the gathering of the most loveliest of people. You are a remarkable group of ladies. Your beauty is inside and out. This is definitely A celebration of Life. The card is magnificent. You have the best ideas. Thanks for the comment about sharing my life. My 4 very close friends are Sister/Girlfriends. I find we can choose our family and I did. Blessings, Janet PPF

What an interesting group of goddesses you have gathered. How wonderful that you are all there to celebrate all that life has to offer.

Yesterday I met with a friend to celebrate her birthday. Next Friday our writer's group is meeting to celebrate the publication of The Street of Secrets written by M.C. Quince our friend and fellow writer. We are all so excited for her. It is her first book and a really interesting and fun novel to read.

I love your card. The colors are great and so is the greeting.

Have a wonderful week.

Thanks so much for your always kind words on my blog and yes when I get my Fab Shoes, I will take a pic of me wearing them. Awesome card and I'm sure she was very happy to receive.

Sorry to be so late Giggles. As always I've loved reading your goddesses stories, and you have such a beautiful wonderful group of friends. You sound like the Ya-Ya Sisterhood in your way of caring for each other over the years. That's one of our favourite much-watched films.
The birdday card is gorgeous, and she must love it.
