I am Y.'Vette! Welcome to my personal blog. I write about that which I am passionate within the realms of music and art. My goal is to post regularly about my thoughts on the subject. I will not think about it too much...it's my way of moving with the Spirit and the flow. Hope you enjoy it!!!

Thinking about my life and my dreams and aspirations. One thing I know for sure is that I always try to help and be helpful. It's the teacher instinct in me...wonder why I did not become a teacher - LOL! Best intentions are often misunderstood. This is why I tend to steal away during my quiet time and commune with my Savior...He alone knows my thoughts, and most importantly the intentions of my heart. He has my back.
My art's purpose is to breathe life and ...Read Full Post »

I just completed the 10-day Green Smoothie Cleanse by JJ Smith. I had no problems following the full cleanse because in general I eat fairly healthy, when compared to the general population. I needed to state it that way, because I still felt I needed a re-jump start to get my metabolism working to burn the fat I had stored over the last couple of years. Despite my 'eat healthy' mantra, I indulged in sugar, salt, and fat like so many of us. Plus eating out....need I sa...Read Full Post »

So excited about awarding a limited edition print of "That Diva Can Sang" to the recipient who was chosen by Elicia Brown Music. I will be traveling to Orlando to present the print. So exciting, and honored to share my work with others.

This was sent to me at just the right time...Today. Wanted to share.
"Lord, at the moment nothing seems to be able to help the loss I feel. My heart is broken and my spirit mourns. All I know is that Your grace is sufficient. This day, this hour, moment by moment, I choose to lean on You, for when I am at my weakest, Your Strength is strongest. I pour out my grief to You and praise You that on one glorious day, when all suffering is extinguished, and love h...Read Full Post »

Happy New Year! And yes, I know I have not blogged in a while. I am a bit 'off game' due to a family emergency necessitating my travels to GA for 22 days. Mom took ill and was hospitalized; while there I was very busy helping her and getting her to various appointments; then, my dad took a turn for the worse and ultimately transitioned to his heavenly home. Thankfully, I was able to spend some very quality time with him before he passed. I moved into a 'zone' - keeping busy,...Read Full Post »

Thanksgiving is now over, so now it is time for me to get back to the business of artwork. Tonight I have spend some time setting up my online store where I am offering limited edition prints of three of my acrylic paintings - Eye Into Their Captive Souls, My Lotus Flower, and That Diva Can Sang. How very exciting! Also, we made some slight rearrangements of my art studio, because last week, I bought a new drawing easel...it is adjustable for various sizes of canvases. ...Read Full Post »

I just wrote a blog about a memory that was important to me. It was several short paragraphs and really expressed the sentiments of my heart. I finished it, re-read it, and then hit the publish button. Then...I got a message that 'oops' something had happened. My blog disappeared and I had not saved it. So, voila, it is gone. I shall not write it again...it is finished.
Some things are not meant to be! So, let go of the past, and LIVE FOR ...Read Full Post »

It was a Saturday type of day. After a busy and long week at work, I had some tough decisions to make. At least I thought they were tough.
Having planned a busy Saturday, I had on my calendar 3 morning activities/events that were running simultaneously and/or overlapping, and one additional event this evening. How could I possibly make these events and still do what I had to do. So...I made the right decision for the moment... to TCB (take care of business)Read Full Post »

Today was a great day! Working a half day, seeing my dentist, having a great lunch with my hubby, and then coming home to an afternoon nap that extended well into the night. Now I am awake, up and at it. That's happiness to me. How refreshing!
Have a phenomenally blessed weekend! By the way, visit my gallery and let me know what you like.

I am on a journey. A journey of personal awareness, and self-development. I am excited to find out more about myself, and to love myself more. That way I can give more love to others. It's a spiritual journey.
And, it's working.
