My Creative endevours have moved

MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

It's been a while....

but it wasn't intentional... I took a few days off from blogging to spend some time with my Sister but then somehow I just couldn't get back into blogging or creating.   Days have turned into weeks and I've started a million crafty things (ok slight but then hated them all.... think my inner critic has been on overdrive!!   

On the positive side I have begun to excercise again (both to help my weight loss and to give me some well needed energy) and oh baby it's Zumba all the way.  Boy is it a cool way to have fun excercising... gets quite addictive really and gets the adrenaline pumping.  My Sister has been joining in with me so we have a little contest going on who can get to their desired weight first.... a little competition is good right.... and I'm happy to say I've lost a stone in 4 weeks and I'm already feeling fitter and healthier.

I'm giving myself a kick up the butt this week on the creating front so I will be back soon hopefully with some pretties to share but in the meantime I will leave you with another journal page.

This one was created with Dylusions ink sprays, images from Dyans downloads (hat and legs), Lisa's Altered art (flowers,dress,cat in chair and words) and the overpainted doggy face is from a magazine.
