LOVE... lots of it!

I really love that I get to do what I love!

Running Charity Wings is a dream job for me.  I am not sure how long I will be able to do it for, but I am going to make sure I do my best every day.

and I love my little brother. He is definitely the best I could ever have hope for.  It was his bday this weekend.  He is a dork by the way. and he loves to wear my tiara.

and I love my mom. She took us our for Eric's bday and let us drink champagne!  I love Champagne!
and this is how much Eric and I love eachother! we were sitting across from each other. (we try not to touch each other if we can help it.) :) he was laughing at my upside down writing.  I thought it was pretty good. he is a show off and made his better.

and I love my new boyfriend.  yep I said it.  He is really  awesome :)

and I went for a run today! Yep! A Run! it was only like 40 minutes but it was a RUN!  and I never do that :)

See LOVE... Lots of it!

Im making decisions... hope I can stick to them!

Two things:

1) I was having a late night conversation with Jenny Doh at Inspired and through talking to her I came to the conclusion that I really really need to get some physical exercise going.  I feel like my body is just going to freeze up and stop moving.  I know that movement is life and if we stop stretching and using our muscles we get stiff and old and blubbery!  So that is where I am at... In my 39th year of life, I am going to try to get my movement back!

So yesterday I went for an hour and 1/2 speed walk on the beach in Encinitas.  My home town and my favorite place on earth!

2)  I decided that I want to get back into ART!!  I used to spend all day every day just scrapbooking and making things. I have not had this life in a long long time.  I miss it.  So here is a necklace I made for a new friend Celeste Black. I met her at Scrapbook Expo Orlando and she was wearing an awesome fabric necklace.  I was wearing one of my own creations and we oohed an ahhed over each others stuff! It was fun and we decided to trade art. So I made her this necklace and I hope she likes it!

Made a decision. Hope I can stick to it!

Where do I go from here?

How do I separate myself from Charity Wings/Scrapbook Royalty.  I need to somehow but don't know how. Its like the charity is my child that I literally birthed and I have no way to separate myself from it nor do I really want to.  It has taken over my life and my identity and I don't want to be lost in it.  But I also love what I do.

Money, I hate having to earn a living. and in the end I have to.

I think, after getting advice from two good friends, Suzi and G, that I have to go back to my art. I miss it. I miss making pretty things and crazy things. I get to once in a while but not much and I miss it!! I remember when my whole life was about making art.  And then it turned into a business and now... did I say I miss it?  I DO!

So how to get back to it?  I think the first step is coming.  I am scared that I am at another cross roads in my life but heck, I've been here before so here goes nothing!

I made this banner for Serendipity Studios. She made a kit to support Charity Wings...Im so excited about it!  Its not totally done yet but here is peek. Iwill figure out where you can buy it.  I added my own stuff and used wood as the base but the kits is super super cute!

It was crafty fun and I am so glad I took the time to do it!
