A look back to the beginning of this year...

My resolutions for this year:

Setting my schedule for "o
thers"
(In 2008 I gave too much time and effort for others needs, forgetting my own).
Happy to report, I've kept this resolution all year so far. I'm finding
that a happier me can manage a "giving" attitude for others without decreasing my own needs!

Forgetting to practice what I "preach".
(Advising others on lifestyle changes and then not applying to my own life).
I'm struggling on this one! I am about half way there...I'd hoped for 100% but will continue to improve.
Ignoring my creative desires.
(Too often I cleaned up after others' messy habits).
I absolutely kept this one! Creative desires are sought after and fulfilled, often!
Not attending University
(I've made my sacrifice, it's over).
Nope, I've not achieved this one. Sadly I don't think I will until the recession is over, whenever that might be...
Financial struggles
(I am NOT the only adult in the house).
Struggles are still there, however, I'm not "alone" in the struggle. :)
Unhealthy habits
(Youthful fantasies of "living forever" exist no more).
Another "half way there" resolution. Again, I'm hoping for 100% achievement,
but realise it's not going to be within 2009.
I think this one will find it's way over to 2010 resolutions list, top priority!

These are my "hopeful" resolutions.
In the past I've not been very stellar at keeping ALL resolutions

All in all, I have done allot better than I imagined, once I hit a "tough patch" in my personal life,just getting through the day was good for me!
I"m very happy where I'm at with these resolutions.
There are still four more months remaining in 2009.

Bon Appetit...






I just finished watching Julie and Julia.
My daughter wanted to take me to the movies and
we decided on this new release.
I enjoyed this film very much.
The urge to cook something with butter while
sipping on wine has overcome me.

If you haven't seen this movie yet, DO.
It's delightfully charming and heart warming.

Like Julia always said "Bon appetit".

I'm hopefully back for good!

Me and a friend working at Comic-Con 2009






My son and I attending the masquerade ball at San Diego Comic-Con 2009






Me and my boyfriend in San Diego, attending/working San Diego Comic-Con 2009

There have been many changes in my life these past few months.
A few difficult things to over come, other events that bring absolute joy to my life and heart.
And the tough choices to make, that take every ounce of energy one can muster up.
Physically I've had a few bouts with ailment. One that has kicked my bum!
The most creatively perplexing event, the melt down of my laptop.

Happy to report, I'm up and running again, my new cherry red "lollipop" cutie sits ever so lovely in my lap, and I'm feeling very creative again.

Thank you for the kind check ins, from a few of you.
I'm not completely out to the woods, so to speak, however;
feeling more energetic and creatively charged to stick around.

I haven't created any fiber arts these past few months.
Mostly paper crafts, when able and spending time with loved ones.

I'll be moving in the next several weeks, so I shall post a bit about that.
Haven't moved from my current residence in nine years...it's going to be a
bit of a challenge.
My kids have grown into fine adults (one still in school, but very near completion).
So there is the "short" of it.

Hope all of you are well. I have a much stronger respect of "health" matters now.
Being "under the weather" for a prolonged bit of time, can really take away the cheery happy status we sometimes take for granted.

I'm gratefully back!

Cheers everyone!
