Relay for Life

Hello world! Today is a dreary day once again since having a balmy 56 degrees last week! I am home for lunch today......uhhhh, supposed to be cleaning since we are having my Relay for Life meeting here tomorrow AND my wonderful hubby's birthday party.......but here I sit tap, tap, tapping on the computer! I am trying new ventures (or adventures) this year. Still searching for my calling and looking to get out of this floundering rut. I have a friend that her father was just diagnosed with cancer a couple of months ago. We had the opportunity to sign up to do the Relay for Life. I was voted as team captain! Did I really know what I was getting into? Uhhh, NO! But, here I go anyway! We are supposed to come up with a movie theme (we have some great ideas!), the campsite must be decorated in this theme, costumes etc. while getting in shape to walk all night. You know, Cancer NEVER sleeps! I need your help! We have all been touched by cancer in our lives. A loved one or a friend. I am doing this so that I can contribute in some small way. Relay for Life is for the American Cancer Society. It helps fund research, educate and lobby bills for ALL types of cancers. The money is dispersed to every single entity! If you would like to help my team meet our goal, here is the link! Thank you in advance!

Blessings and hugs!

So thankful!

I am thankful for the beautiful sunshine today, my sweet boys, my part time job at our school, my part time job bookkeeping AND my agreeing with my heart to follow it! I just started my example "Bloom" art project for my very first mixed media workshop! I am so excited to get my feet wet with this venture of the heart! Oh, and did I tell you that sweet inspirational Lesley Riley mentioned my confession in her newsletter today? She is amazing and whether she likes it or not, I have adopted her as my mentor! Stop back by to see this first project in the next day or two. Have a super day!

Taking in the beauty this morning........

AWWWW...........the first day of Spring Break! I sat with my cup of coffee reading my first copy of "Souvenir" online Gazette by Heather Bullard. Her blog is beautiful and inspiring! Then, I look at all the fun the girls are having at "Brave Girl Camp" with Melody Ross........oh, how I hope one day to attend! I am taking an online mixed media art workshop with Christy Tomlinson! My computer has been giving me fits with my upload speed, so I have not even started on my first SheArt Girl yet, but have been jotting down my ideas! I have been soul searching for some time now. You know, I have really decided that I need to follow my heart. My wish is to inspire others, have pride and confidence in myself, make time for art everyday AND spend more quality time with my boys. Time just flies by so quickly. So, as I get ready to go to work for a little while this morning, I choose to let Lesley Riley's words of wisdom sink down in my soul! The sun is warm and it is a truly gorgeous day! I choose to believe in the possibilities today! Hope you have a beautiful one!
