Are you crazy????

Are you crazy? That's the comment I received from a few coworkers when I told them I signed up for the Team in Training Marathon to raise funds for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society.   I said no, just determined.  I love doing not for profit work and making a change in the world.  I am not doing this to help find a cure for blood cancers but to find a cure and save lives.  I did this before, albeit, 10 years ago, when I was younger and in better shape.  I can do it again. 
I'll keep you posted on my progress with pictures on my TNT website.  I am still constructing it but you will receive notice about it here and in Facebook once I am done creating it.
Do something crazy but safe today!  Maybe re-create yourself?

Creating Yourself

I've had a busy day today so I am going to borrow a quote from a very well known creative artist. Tim Holtz.  While at a store today, I came across a project sheet.  The quote on the sheet I thought was perfect.
"Life is not about finding yourself, it's about creating yourself....Enjoy the journey."
In the coming days, you will hear more about creating myself since I have already found myself.  Enjoy your creations and share your creativity.

Waiting so LONG to learn

Since this a new blog, I have a lot to catch you up on.... but I won't overload you at once.
Ok, so I am 40-ish and you won't believe what I decided to learn to do at my age.  Many youngsters, of any age, already know how to do this and have no fear.  I, on the other hand, developed a fear of this at an early age.  Have you guessed yet?  My fear (any guesses?) was due to rose bushes.  I wasn't scared of rosebushes or their thorns but falling into them on my bike. So, after many years.... yep, you guessed it, I am now learning how to ride a beautiful bike my husband bought for me on my birthday just 5 years ago.  I have had 2 lessons so far, both without pedals.  I have to say it's odd but the bike repair guy said it's easier to learn balance and brakes without pedals.  Hum?  So, we are trying it his way.  It's quite a workout but I am enjoying it and by end of summer (I hope) I will be riding my bike with pedals.
It's never too late to learn or create your dreams come true.  Yeah, I know it's make your dreams come true, but I like "create".  It flows better with my blog theme.
Happy creating!

Creating Isn't Easy

Whoever said creating was easy was very mistaken.  I have been "creating" my website for hours now and know it will change again.  I guess that's the fun of it.  Make changes, keep creating different looks.  It's yours to create out of it what you want, my friends say.  I haven't figured that out yet. However, looking out onto the prairie behind our yard makes me wonder.....hum... beautiful day....hum.....time to play.  For now, this artist is done.
