Seems like I haven't blogged in  forever! But I think it's been about 2 weeks?Maybe less. I am sharing a charger with my daughter until I get a new one because mine died! So if she's using her charger I'm out of luck! I haven't been doing much of anything creatively for the past month or so either.See ms like there just isn't enough time.I really need to make the time though because art is good for the soul ! I know it's therapy for me! I did make a couple of quick cards for swaps over at and here they are: The first is a hand made letter "C" themed  postcard   letter X themed Skinny card also for a swap-bot swap

Thought for Thursday : I CAN do this!

There's been a lot on my mind this week...this is one of the biggest: There are two more days to go for the road to raw cleanse to finish and then the juice fast begins on Sunday. I am a little apprehensive about joining the juice feast. My biggest  was concern was  being able to do it being a diabetic, so I spoket to Janet ,  one of the NP's at work  & she said it would be ok as long as I closely monitored my blood sugars. I also read about it online. I learned that I have to go heavier on the veggie juices  than on the fruit only juices. I am still wondering if I'll be able to handle it?I've been in a perpetual state of hunger for the past month and a half.But decided I'm going to do it.I am going to give it a whirl!If it makes me sick and I can't handle it  then I'll have  go to green smoothies heavy on the greens. I have got to prove to myself that I can do what it takes to get healthier and reach my goal weight. I am determined not to quit! I have to t…

Musical Monday : What a feeling!

I've been going down memory lane these days ,thinking about how things were,how they could've been and how they are...
In 1983 I was 14 years old and dancing and acting were my passions.
I loved movies like "Fame" and "FlashDance". "What a Feeling "was one of my favorite songs that year. It inspired me to dance and I felt like I was going to make it...  When I was home alone I would turn up the music and dance my heart out.

A lot has happened since then...(*sigh and rolling tear ) I still love dance and once in a while I still dance like a maniac....when nobody is watching!

Join Musical's fun! Just head over to Amanda's blog check it out!

A few racy ATC's....Oh my!

I made these two ATC's for a "Vintage Nude " ATC  swap Over at this swap was hosted by:lilpinktyger These three ATC's were made for a one word ATC swap featuring the "F" word!I thought that was a different way to express myself -being that my cards always have sweet,inspirational words on them, but in real life...well I say f@#&! way too much when I get ticked off! This cool ATC swap was hosted by: Zilliah @ swap -bot. Hope she hosts a few more like this lol I hope my partners will be happy with these cards- I enjoyed making them. Till tomorrow!

Thoughts For Thursday

Few things in the world are more powerful than a positive push. A smile. A word of optimism and hope. A "you can do it" when things are tough... Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections, but instantly set about remedying them - every day begin the task anew.

Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible;                  and suddenly you are doing the impossible.

Sometimes I go about pitying myself And all the while I am being carried across the sky By beautiful clouds.

This is how I've been feeling and I owe it all to the raw food diet I'm following!!
