O maior conquistador não é aquele que conquista grandes coisas, mas sim o que conquista as pequenas e as torna grandes!

Here's a dozen of my favorite things never to apologize for:

1) Never apologize for acting on your instincts.
2) Never apologize for being passionate.
3) Never apologize for being smart.
4) Never apologize for demanding respect.
5) Never apologize for saying no.
6) Never apologize for not embracing someone else's agenda.
7) Never apologize for disagreeing.
8) Never apologize for your faith.
9) Never apologize for your own sense of creativity.
10) Never apologize for ordering dessert.
11) Never apologize for being funny.
12) Never apologize for living your truth.

Every one of us casts a shadow.

There hangs about us, a sort of a strange, indefinable something, which we call personal influence--that has its effect on every other life on which it falls. It goes with us wherever we go. It is not something we can have when we want to have it--and then lay aside when we will, as we lay aside a garment. It is something that always pours out from our lives . . . as light from a lamp, as heat from flame, as perfume from a flower.

The ministry of personal influence is something very wonderful. Without being conscious of it, we are always impressing others by this strange power that exudes from us. Others watch us--and their thinking and actions are modified by our influence."

"Be very careful, then, how you live--not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity." Ephesians 5:15-16

The wisdom of today

"We often wish for more, without realizing that life's most precious

treasures, are often within the palms of our hands.

It is not success, but rather the journey there,

that often makes our lives complete.

We are most at peace with the world, when we accept

the wonderful and amazing creature - that is - ourselves.

When we give our all TODAY; and look forward to giving tomorrow

the same, then there is no reason for regretting our yesterdays.

Despise not the past, for in it lies the wisdom of today,

and the hope of tomorrow.

My Paintings

These are some of my paintings.

Order baby Booties

I take orders for these cute baby booties. Email me at ceciliaallthingsbeautiful@gmail.com

Baby´s bedspread in crosstitch


This bedspread is made of candelwicking. The blocks are 40x40cm, the same heart pattern was used thu out the beadspread, I used batting as padding while doing the candlewicking, I used cotton lace on the strips to join the blocks. To complete the bedspread I used a night frill as lining.


Crosstitch bedspread

I used an iron on transfere to do the crosstitching on this beadspread. I combined the crosstitching with a bit of embroidery for the leaves of the flowers.
