I just noticed my latest journal entry is a year and a half old. What say I update it, eh? :P

I'm a little ADD, so my life is consistently changing. However, I do hope to get involved with art again. I keep coming back for more, even when I've been away a while. There are a lot of things that interest me. Thus far, I've never really been able to Smash as I would have liked. I do enjoy ZenTangle. One of my favorite things to do, at the moment, is to take a coloring page and ZenTangle it.

Since July, I've been involved in trying to make my life a healthier one. I still am. I'm now Vegan (from life-long vegetarian) and exercise regularly (5-6 days a week usually). With the holidays fast approaching and life recently hitting me pretty hard in another area, I've found it difficult to stick to my schedule, but I still go to the gym as time allows. In 5 months, I have lost 45 pounds and gained vitality in the mean time. 

I intend to go back to college in January. I'm waiting for my FAFSA to come through so I can sign up for classes. I will be working towards a career as a fitness & nutrition trainer. I've made an impact on the lives of those around me and it inspires me to be a role model to others. I have something to give. Something I haven't felt since my firstborn was taken from me 6.5 years ago. There is hope where once there was none. 

Recently, I've discovered (or, possibly REdiscovered) that there's more to health then exercise and nutrition. It's really about balance in several aspects of your life: social, emotional, spiritual, as well as physical. To that end, I'm coming back to art and my relationship with God. I've been wanting to get myself some colors: SAI (digital art), and various other mediums (colored pencils, water colors, pastels, etc). Maybe while I'm in school, I can even take an art class or two to help my drawing skills. How awesome would it be to be able to color my own drawings?! Exciting, to say the least. Hopefully, there'll be more to come both in this journal and in my art work in my portfolio.

I've been writing for years, but something I've always wanted to do was explore art. I have a sister who does remarkable work and, though I love her dearly, I've always felt inferior to her skill. However, a friend showed me her rough beginnings and I'm bound and determined to learn.

I love my dog and hubby, reading and writing, biking, canoeing, tubing, swimming. A great night includes a cup of hot cocoa, a warm blanket and a book.

I always appreciate a "thank you" written on my wall. I appreciate every one since I'm not looking for any. So grateful you want to do more? Please! Feel free to donate points to me. There's a lot of good art on this site and I would love to be able to pay for some- for my house, for commissions, etc.
