#52in52 Getting creative again

Been a few weeks since I posted, but I am continuing with one change per week. Last week I gave up diet soda, soda in general actually. I am CRAVING a diet Pepsi right now, but I have to wait until...May of 2016. :)

I've been slowly pulling out my stamps and ink to get crafty again. I'm pretty slow, but I always enjoy it. This all use Ranger Distress inks to make a watercolor background. You can tell I'm still rusty because I've been out of practice, but I did have fun. The cake stamp...not sure. The scripture card uses Papertrey Ink A Cheerful Heart. Thanks for looking.

52 in 52 .... Week One Challenge

I haven't been blogging in a long time; over a year. Lots of changes in our lives and a full time job have kept me from this space I used to love. I want to return.

Today I turn 52 years old. I had an idea that for the next 52 weeks, I am going to institute one change in my life that will be better for my health, whether that is emotional, spiritual or physical. And once I implement that change, whichever week that might be, I am going to try to stick with it for the remainder of the 52 weeks until my next birthday rolls around. Sort of my own personal 52 week challenge. And it doesn't matter if anyone else reads this, I need a place to keep myself accountable, so this is going to be it.

For the first week, which starts tomorrow (since today was a lovely day of celebration thanks to family, friends and my wonderful husband), the kitchen closes for me at 9:00 at night except for water, hot tea or medicine if ill. It can always be pushed to an earlier time in a later week, but for now, we'll start with 9:00.

My daughter challenged me to give up soda. Mmmmmmmmmm...what would life be like without Diet Pepsi? I will consider that for a later week....perhaps week 51! :) But for week more snacking or food after 9:00 at night.
