Love Notes

I've been wanting to create homemade cards for a while but dreaded dragging out all of the art supplies. I finally did this around the middle of December on a mellow weekend.  I watched some Christmas Movies (or rather listened to them while I created).  To help motivate me I got a couple of art related books from the library and got inspired.

I'd been spending quite a bit of money on cards to send to my boyfriend since we have a long distance relationship. While they were beautiful cards I also wanted to have even more meaning behind them by making some of my own.  I ended up creating a bunch of cards that I can mail to him randomly to surprise him.  See them below...

New Year New Resolutions

It's a new year and with it comes new resolutions. I had a great New Year's Eve hanging out with my family, reflecting back on the year, playing games and eating food.  We decided that all of us wanted to work on losing 5 lbs this year so we started a little friendly competition with a goal of seeing who can lose 5 lbs and maintain it by 5/5.  I'm hoping to get myself back in shape this year. I logged 665.50 miles last year which is just over half of what I ran the previous year.  I started out fairly strong with an 11 mile run on 1/2. I signed up for a 5k race on 1/23, "The Ronald McDonald Red Shoe" race. I have a couple of others lined up also on top of the Mryle Beach 1/2 Marathon. So we will see what happens!

Other take care of myself by eating healthier and exercising more and creating more art. I'd love to do a weekend getaway with an workshop such as the ones Sweet Repeat host. Stay tuned to see if I can make any of these resolutions happen.
