Whole30 – Last two days and summary

DAY TWENTY-NINE (7/11): Another good day. Still don’t know if I’m feeling the “tiger blood” they talk about, but in general doing well. No problems with eating today other than I don’t think I ate enough, or had enough water. I think those factors in conjunction with...

Whole30 – Week FOUR

Long, very detailed, mostly for me, but feel free to read if you like! 🙂 DAY TWENTY-TWO (7/4) - Only eight more days to go! Although I honestly probably am not going to change a whole lot on Day 31. I will probably add some stevia or something to my coffee, and maybe...

Whole30 – Week THREE

Long, detailed, probably boring to anyone but me - but Week THREE is DONE! Nine more days to go. DAY FIFTEEN (6/27): (writing this on 6/28) At the halfway point! So far, so good. I was hoping to really start to feel better and more energetic this week. However, I am...

Whole30 – Week TWO

(Again - this is long - doing this mostly for myself as an easy way to journal my experience.) DAY EIGHT (6/20/16): Woke up tired again today. Felt okay during the day, even went for a brief walk (15 minutes) at lunchtime, but had trouble staying awake on the drive...

Whole30 – Week One

Very long, as I said before, doing this for myself as a convenient way to journal my experience in a place that’s easy to find. 🙂 Posted about the first few days already, so starting with day three. (Posting now although this happened in June - see dates!) DAY THREE:...

Whole30 – Days One and Two

(Originally posted on Facebook June 14, 2016) Please don’t feel you have to read this whole long thing. I mean, you’re welcome if you want, I did post it on a public forum after all, but I’m mostly doing it for myself. Although if you’ve done, are doing, or are...

Finding a new way to BLOOM

Each January, for the past three years, I've chosen a "Word of the Year". In 2014, my word was "Wholehearted". Last year, I chose "Clear". This year, my word is "BLOOM". As you may know from reading my earlier posts, I turned 50 this January. I decided I wanted my...

Many layers make one piece….

Many layers make one piece….

I just completed (I think!) another piece of mixed media artwork. It's a 9x12 canvas board entitled "Surrounded". My process involves lots of layers. Here are a few peeks at this one's journey: In this photo, the piece already has a few layers of paint and paper, as...

New Art!

New Art!

One of my virtual mentors, favorite artists and people (although I've never actually met her in person) is Kelly Rae Roberts. A former medical social worker turned full time artist, she embodies much of what I've love to be and do. She recently offered a bundle of...

Get art scanned – CHECK! One step closer….

Taking my artwork somewhere to be scanned has been on my "to-do" list for years. Today, I can scratch it off! I am elated. This feels big to me. We don't have a high quality scanner at home, and can't afford to buy one right now. If I want to open an Etsy shop and...
