Hey LiliBeaners…happy July!! This is going to be a great month. I can feel it already! To kick the month off, I wanted to share a few things with you all.

First and most importantly, I will no longer be posting my LiliBean updates to my personal Facebook, Twitter and Google+ accounts. To stay up to date on new posts & happenings, you can do one of two things:

  • Follow LiliBean on Twitter at @LiliBeanNP


  • Subscribe to LiliBean by entering your email address here:

Also, I just signed up for Squidoo today under the username LiliBeanNP. I’ll be writing articles (called lenses out there) on a whole different array of topics.  It will be a little different from the posts out here on LiliBean but my plan is to still keep it positive! I’ll be writing on things like single life, travel, animal rescue…basically all the things that are nearest and dearest to my heart. Once I have my profile fully completed, I’ll post a link to it here and you can bookmark if you want for future reference. I’ll also be using @LiliBeanNP to post updates for Squidoo.

Other upcoming new developments will be shops on CafePress and/or Zazzle (and/or a couple other options I’m looking at). These are POD (print on demand) sites where I can upload designs and people can go out and buy them on a variety of products (t-shirts, hats, key chains, mugs, etc.). Again, I will post links when I have the shops up and running and will also be posting regular updates out to @LiliBeanNP.

So, what do you think? Exciting stuff, right?!!  I know things have been quiet out here lately but they will be picking up starting this month. Be sure to follow LiliBean on Twitter or subscribe via email so you don’t miss anything!

Until next time LiliBeaners….stay cool…and stay connected!





Hey LiliBeaners! Me again. I know! So quick!!

I have a “LiliBean Extra! Extra!” to share!

I’ve heard from a few of you who are struggling with decisions and looking for some guidance or wisdom to help get you pointed in the right direction. While you do have to make your own decisions in the end, this website I’m about share will give you food for thought and may help lead you to the right answers.

The website is and the link below will take you directly to a free reading page. Tori created a set of cards called the Color Wisdom Cards. Each card represents a different color and each color comes with a fable associated to it. There is always a moral to the story and the reading explains how the moral might apply to your situation.

If you decide to go out and do the free reading, here are a couple tips to help you navigate. When you come to the main screen, you’ll see a bunch of frames that say Think of a question or Pick a card. Once you’ve thought of your question and focused on it for a bit, you can click any one of the links. They all take you to the same place…your color card.

Once you get to your color card, I suggest reading all the different frames. The Inspiration frame will be the one that explains how the moral of the story may pertain to you.

You do have to sign up to get a free reading but it’s an easy sign up process.

Here’s the link (finally!): Free Reading on

Hope this helps, LiliBeaners! Have fun with it!

P.S. I do have the actual deck of cards but I’m so lazy that I almost always use the website. The cards are very cool though.

P.P.S. I picked a card out here earlier in the week. It was the first in many months. The card was Penelope and Pickle. When you’re out there, read the meaning behind that card. Amazing, right?
