Love Her or Hate Her

Some people LOVE Jillian and some people HATE her, I find her inspiring. I have been watching the episodes of "Losing It" and I cry every single time. With the recent health concerns in my family, I need all the help I can get to become healthier and remain healthy. I watch this show because it helps to focus me. When I am on the treadmill and getting bored, I think of Jillian yelling at me to get back on the treadmill and finish my run. I think it would be great if she came and yelled at me for a week.

My Art Journal

I started in April with a group of friends from school. My Journal is actually a recycled book that I found in my classroom and I love changing the purpose and the meaning of this book. Each page has a different idea, meaning, or purpose, something that I need to work through or something that has inspired me. Last January Lawrence was diagnosed with Heart Disease and received three metal stents. Just this past couple of weeks, my dad has been through the same procedures, diagnosed with Heart Disease and Diabetes. The page on the right is my way of working through just some of the thoughts and feelings I have been struggling with over the past couple of months.

It All Started with this Book

The Beginning of an Idea

What inspires you? Lately, I have been looking around and discovering what inspires me. What is it that inspires me to be a better wife, mother, teacher, sister, daughter,artist? What is it that will inspire me to create and explore the environment around me. With my summer holidays, comes more time for myself, and more time to be creative. I am hoping that this will be a place where I can write and explore my inspired ideas.
