Becoming a mother at 46 and the adventure of having a baby unicorn!

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!

I'm so glad you're making these decisions for yourself, Elena! I think you're one of the most creative women I know.

I need to come down out of this SLOP in Portland and walk the beach with you. That sounds heavenly.
