A Deck of Me- Week 1: Something I'm Proud Of...
My very talented Emily has a great blog of ideas and her most recent entry is a challange to all. I couldn't help myself. I had to join in. To look at the full details of this challenge check out her blog at http://embers.typepad.com/e/2007/01/join_me_on_an_a.html . Check it out and join too.
I haven't painted for the heck of it in a while and I've never scrapbooked before, but I use to paint all the time so here is my first entry. My friend Nanette gave me 15 blank watercolor postcards for painting on. I figure I'll start with these and try scrapbooking cards in a few weeks. (maybe) :) It's being creative that counts and recording it like a journal. It was wonderful to draw and pull out the old paints, brushes, and pallet. Oh joy! So this week's entry of something that I'm proud of is... "Today I took it easy." It's always nice to sit back, relax, and drink some herbal tea.
I am usually running around so much with kids, my dancing, volunteering at my daughter's elementary school with guitar and art lessons, teaching my other daughter's preschool, and helping friends. I seem to not know how to say "no" and cancel things to take a break. I have been so proud of myself the past few weeks of taking it easy, keeping my house more clean, playing my guitar, and playing with my kids more. I'm trying to change to slow things down and take it easy. So this is why I'm proud of myself. :)
