17 February 2008

And now, back to our regular program


Staying out of blogging for 2 weeks has been... well... different. Neither bad nor good. Just different. Of course, I kept myself busy visiting all those amazing blogs in the One World One Heart event, entering giveaways (I've won 4!), replying to some comments. And of course, creating stuff. The picture for today is of my Daily Art Cards for February so far (today not included.) I've made journal pages for Emily Falconbridge's challenge and my cards for the Deck Of Me challenge. I've started other projects that aren't quite finished yet. But soon...

The weather has been... crazy. Snow, icy rain, more snow, sunshine, still more snow... We've never received this much snow for as long as I can remember. A few weeks ago, I bought myself some Light Duty Traction Devices for walking on ice and snow and I certainly do not regret it! I've been using them every day when going to work since buying them.

In other news, I've been doing really well when it comes to food. Yes, I admit, I've been indulging in a few sweets but in moderation. Which is a big improvement for me. I noticed that my waist measurement has changed. Lost a total of 1.5 inches since the holidays! Yay for me! My clothes aren't as tight as they used to be so I'm happy.

I've been trying really hard not to buy any more stuff. It's not easy. There are so many nice things out there and I wish I could support all my talented friends by buying their creations. But alas, I, too, am one of those starving artists! Okay, not starving but certainly nowhere near being rich... yet. Actually, I'm toying with the idea of eventually opening up my own Etsy Shop. But don't hold your breath as I'll need to create a lot more stuff to be able to apply that plan. I hope everyone's having a nice weekend.

Your Viking queen card is so cool. I love that you added the wing! All the cards are nice. It seems like doing the card a day is really working well for you.

Congrats on the loss too. Such a hard thing to accomplish, but so rewarding to fit into things better. Good job.
