FENG SHUI IS CHILD’S PLAY

What if you could jump start your child’s creativity simply by creating a great space? You can! The room shown here does just that by surrounding the child with “magic”. Go see more pictures here. And remember, the Creativity & Future Projects sector of the bagua is also represented by Children. Now you see why.

GLASSY EYED THRILLS

Tianmen Mountain National Park in China has just opened a breathtaking (and scary!) glass walkway a mile up a mountain that hugs a cliff. See more photos at newgarde blog. You don’t have to go all the way to China for this type of thrill, though. The Grand Canyon Skywalk has a glass balcony that you walk way out and over the majestic Grand Canyon.

Grand Canyon Skywalk

Personally, I’m chicken when it comes to doing this kind of thing. I’d have no problem living in a glass house like the one I featured recently on Feng Shui By Fishgirl but I’d have a huge problem walking on glass over a deep chasm. What about you?

LOVELY GIFTS OF LOVE

3 Love Messengers paintings by Isabelle Bryer

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. I’m focusing on the feng shui of Love, Love, Love for the month of February. Art improves feng shui and supporting artists lifts your spirit, too. Check out Isabelle Bryer Paintings for some adorable love themed work like the 3 Love Messengers shown above. Think you can’t afford art? Many artists like Isabelle offer their images as printed reproductions to give more people access. That’s good feng shui!

Mozelle Art Studio Jewelry has gorgeous silver earrings

Lots of moms out there would love to get some jewelry for Valentine’s Day. For fine handcrafted jewelry, Mozelle Art Studio has a wonderful selection of earrings and necklaces. Artist Maureen Farr will also custom make an exclusive piece for your Valentine. How cool is that?

A Subscription to Feng Shui By Kindle for Your Kindle!

And while you’re at it, why not love yourself with a subscription to Feng Shui By Kindle on your Kindle Fire? It’s only 99 cents a month (99 means infinity in feng shui) and that’s a whole lot of love for a little bit o’ money. It’s the gift that keeps on giving and this blog operates entirely on your support (think of FSBFG as the NPR of feng shui!).
