Although there are endless ways to think about wishes - birthday wishes, good luck wishes, wedding wishes, bon voyage wishes, baby shower wishes, get well wishes, wishes that your children will have happy & healthy futures, when I thought about creating a post for today's blog hop following our "Wishes" theme was Jeannie. Yes - Barbara Eden from the I Dream of Jeannie show many years ago. It originally aired before my time, but I enjoyed the re-runs about a zillion times (and still do when I can find them on TV!) I loved it so much that one Halloween many (many, many) years ago I even made a Jeannie halloween costume, complete with a jeweled bottle, and dressed my husband as Major Nelson for a party we were attending. (What's one of MY wishes today? That I could still fit into that costume lol!)
I went to what seems to be a never-ending source of inspiration these days - PINTEREST - and searched "Genie" - the results were plentiful - and very interesting. It seems "genies" inspire creativity of all kinds - photographs, costumes, paintings, cartoons, bottles, lamps, jewelry, and some of my favorites which I thought were completely amazing - this awesome, colorful cake, this enormous sand sculpture, and yes, there was even a genie costume for a dog!
I also found this quote, which I liked so much I decided to use for a mixed-media bracelet project. I kept the basic bracelet very simple, as I plan to wear this regularly and wanted it to coordinate with many outfits.
“The absolutely awesome incredible power of belief is the genie in your life.”
