Empowerment Showcase

August 1, 2011 at 11:07 AM Leave a comment

So, I did not get many photos or art pieces submitted for the “Empowerment Showcase”. At first I was a little disappointed, because I really wanted to house a great example of all the many forms that empowerment can take.

However, the one submission that I did receive is so incredible that I am still overjoyed to share this with you.

Starrlife has become an integral part of my blog world, and I consider her a friend and someone to learn from. We are often busy with our lives, but when we find time to comment on each others blogs I am always glad.

Starrlife encourages, and empowers, myself and many others to do what they love.
Starrlife empowers me to believe that I am enough.

She is someone who I have watched gain a wonderful camera and grow in her skills as a photographer immensely. I adore her photographs because they capture moments, tell stories, or bring a quiet focus to something that I don’t always catch. There is a patience behind her photography that lies in the background, humming, that I am so envious of. Click on the photograph to read her blog. It is worth it!

Also, I have somehow managed to forget a submission to my own showcase! Well, that is slightly discouraging. I will be doing my best to have something that expresses “Empowerment” in my world by August 4th. 🙂

Happy Adventures,

I’m Tweeting (Yikes!)

  • So, I started going by my middle name in college because I've always liked it better. Now I'm Renée, and can be tweeted at "teafaellana." 3 years ago
  • I keep reading fanfics to tide me over until #OUaT is back. I can't wait to see more character development of Regina! #EvilRegals 4 years ago
  • This has somehow been the best and worst Thanksgiving I've ever had, all at once. 4 years ago

Smile about what you are thankful for, and never forget you are a dreamer.


I am a girl on a mission, and the mission I am on is to be myself. I am an undiscovered treasure, and here I am giving you a key that will allow you a little further into the labyrinth of who I am.

Heather loves hats that are designed to look like cute animals, fairy wings, cheese pizza, swimming in ponds, roller blading, taking silly self-portraits, learning, spending time with people, and just about everything else too. Heather does not love ... well, there isn't a lot that she doesn't love. You can probably figure it out after a little while!
