OLW- Journal page

I have been very behind. Just putting in march in my One Little Word Journal.

Below is a page I did about what I was afraid of right now, so that I could over come it. Not to fun to do this at all. I loved making this page.... It speaks for itself but the next page (which I'm not showing anyone) is what was difficult to put down In words.

It is hard admitting what your afraid of. Because then you either have to do down thing about it or ignore it.

Also, I spelled afraid wrong. I am a horrible speller. I'm not joking like so bad I sometimes think spell check is wrong lol.

It's something I have accepted about myself.

I'm just trying to catch up. More pages to come.

The Raven

I love the new show The Following, the movie The Raven.

I ask myself why haven't my eyes been open to Edgar Allan Poe?

I used to love writing poetry, I use to love reading it dissecting it.

Loved the movie the raven, if you don't know me, I love horror movies, I love blood and guts and gore. I don't know why, but even when I choreograph Its always from a dark place. It just seems to mean more and I can get more out of my students.

Anyways, I did this the other night. I love the white I love that's its simple and I want to make more like it.

Distress paint

Ok.... So.... I bought all of them at once because that's how I roll. I take chances, hearing what everyone has been saying about these paints, and then watching TIM HOLTZ do his magic, forgetting he does this for a living.
It's like going to get your hair cut, first thing I say is make sure what ever you do to me I can do tomorrow without you!! N
So it like that with these paints. I grabbed the first one and well It sucked. I was let down. Pushed them away and said that's what you get for buying ALL OF THEM before testing driving one first.
Gave myself a few days and guess what. I love to stamp with these paints. Haven't done the whole marble with different colors thing like everyone else is doing because well I don't like to copy right away. I feel then after I finish doing their idea I get stuck and think then what. So I have to take my time and try a little something here and there. I stamped in black and on the other page seedless preserves. Now I love it right now. But I still have alot of playing to do.





Vision board for OWL

Now, I was terrified to make this vision board.
I didn't know what was going to show up on my board, what if it was to dark.
I even researched different way to do this board.
Turns out, I don't know what I was scared of. It's me right now. It's really simple to make a vision board.
I do feel as though I could keep adding to it, I think I will for the rest of the year. I'm exciting to have this out and looking at it often.

March- spirit

This month- spirit- I feel as if I need to find my spirit all over again.

I have to let go of something. And it's not going to be an easy task.

Even though my task as you would say is body for feb, let me tell you I didn't lose the 20 lbs I aimed for. But I did get these weird stress blisters which I later found out that it was from sleeping with my hearing pad and it was burning me.

But I do have very sensitive skin. And I'm dealing with that.

Plants

I have been paying attention to nature. And structures in building and paths and different textures. It's all very over whelming and makes me want to re- create it. Here are some from Portland downtown. I loved these leaves. They needed attention.

Body

As I am reflecting on my OLW and really trying to TRANFORM. Grocery shopping last night was terrible, I went at 10:15pm, and was there for an hour. YES an hour. Reading labels, thinking about what I could actually eat that makes me feel good. Let me tell you this task was not fun an I hate shopping for food anyways, because as soon as I get home all I want to do is open everything and eat it all. Yep I think that was January's word. (need to transform my mind still)

so I found this treat for myself, gluten free fudge brownie in the freezer section and was about $1.50. Now just because its gluten free doesn't mean its low in everything on that label. For some reason my brain tells me that because it is gluten free I can eat as much of it as I want to.

Again MIND.

Well I was expecting this brownie to taste horrible.... But wow it tastes better then the ones you make from a box. I love it.
Now I must go to gym and concentrate on working this off, because man it's like a meal in its self. But totally worth it!

One little word

TRANSFORM is my word.
I have decided to make a journal for this word. I am writing down question I ask myself and really trying to reflect on how deep I can go.
Here are a few pages.

I'm Back

Right Now....


 - I'm taking ONE LITTLE WORD with Ali Edwards - My word is TRANSFORM. It fits, I want to explore this challenge and take this word and really apply it to my life. I'm also excited that its a year class, I have a month to really think about our challenge or task. I have my NEVER GIVE UP (thank you SGI), journal at hand, with ideas, about my word, and how I want to change me as a person. I'm excited and scared at the same time. I do not like to disappoint myself. My word last year was commitment, I didn't however challenge myself the way I will this year, but I kept going back to it, wish I would have done more with it. 




- I'm re-reading Twyla Tharp's two book,

The Collaborative Habit
The Creative Habit


- I really enjoyed reading them the first time and really got my creative juices, going. 

- I'm struggling with my art journaling, nothing is coming and what is coming looks just horrible. 

- Sewing costumes for comp, our first comp is next month, very nervous about this season, but so excited to see how much our kids have grown up using their bodies. I'm so thankful I get to work with hard working kids, It makes my time there fly...makes me want to teach them so much more. I LOVE TO SEW, even though I do get frustrated more often then not. I really enjoy it.
