I don't know about any of you but it seems I am finding each day is a new start as well as a new challenge. Today will be easy - no social events no potlucks etc. But this time of year parties and snacks are the nature of celebration. Add that to having only 9 hours of sunshine and well, it is challenging.

Let's do this together! Whadda ya say?

Yes i've received them. so far i've only received from 2 of those whom said they wanted in. the deadline for receipt is monday. no matter what cards will be exchanged. just may not have as much of a variety as i'd hoped. but that's alright ;)

evening!

so tired. i think though i'm gonna crack open my graphics program and work on atc's. i feel the need to design something lol!

The ride home from NH was uneventful. the only ones that really ended up with ickies were me and DH..and i'm still trying to kick out the sinus crud.

the weather here has been interesting to say the least. it actually hit 71 today, and was only 43 yesterday's high ..

as far as exercise i'm sorry i can't offer any unique answers..other than to try and stay active in some way.

From Loretta LaRoche one of my fave motivational speakers. "Lighten Up Movement: Changing one’s behavior is the hardest thing we can choose to do. Our patterns are often so ingrained that it takes a jackhammer to loosen them. But I have always been overly optimistic about the human condition and its possibilities.

You may have a lot of wishes about how you want to look, feel, and be. But a transformation isn’t a concrete event: rather, it’s a culmination of many smaller changes. You didn’t gain weight overnight, or become unfit and stressed out in a week.

You did it over a period of time. Take that into consideration, and try to reverse the process in the same way in which you created the problem. When you follow this mind-set, you’ll have a much greater chance in reaching your goals."

Try to keep up with your upper body strength training, the muscle you build in your arms and shoulders may help to keep your metabolism up.
Do you have access to a pool? If so you can try some water aerobics or just swimming.
If I can think of anything else, I'll let you know.

I am looking for suggestions on how to exercise without using my feet. I am worried that I will gain weight if I have to be sedentary for 8-10 weeks like the doc says but all the activities I like are walking, biking etc. Any ideas?

Here! Here! I think those are wise words of wisdom! You're an artist if you believe you are. No matter what your medium is! pencils, crayons, photography, digital, paints, etc.

I think we are all artist in some way. The pioneer women who made quilts to keep their family warm were artist. The cave dwellers who felt the need to draw on the walls were artist. The lady who cooks a fantastic meal for others to enjoy is also an artist in her own chosen field. I believe when we do something that gives us self-satisfaction and pride in what we've created, even when it doesn't turn out as good as we would have hoped, we are artist. Art is the thing that elevates us to a higher plane -- whatever path we choose to get there.

I think we all have our own definitions of what a "real" artist is. I went through many levels of it before I finally accepted that I am. My partner even gave me a certificate as proof!

You're a real artist if you...
sold a piece
happen to be in a gallery
have a portfolio
have a website?
are proud of what you have created
paint in oils
make a living making art

there are so many rules, and they are all in our heads. You are an artist if you think you are!

Sometimes an artist's skills can progress even if they haven't worked in a while. On the other hand some mechanical skills can get a bit rusty. I did art obsessively through school and college but when I got a job that took all my energy, there was a period of many years that I didn't do very much. After I quit I started doing art again and felt as if I improved.

I believe Artists perpetually learn/get better at what they do, but I don't think you have to be "good" at something before you're an artist...

I think an artist is anyone is feels compulsive about creating - whether it's visual art, music, writing, dance, etc. If you aren't fulfilled unless you're submerged in some stage of the creative process, you are an Artist.

So what do you think makes an artist? Is it someone who is good at creating stuff? pictures? forms? or is it someone who shapes life to be the way they wish or need it to be? Who are these souls who call them selves creatives. Master of craft? or... master of souls.

Glad you're feeling better. I've been too busy to paint but now that a show is coming up in a couple days I decided to paint. Of course I won't finish anything but I'll just enjoy the moment anyway.

I decided to stay home one more day just to be sure I'm not contagious but I am feeling better. I feel like I am playing hookey though. I think I'll do a little sorting of my photos today just to keep my hand in it.

I sold 2 photos this weekend and feel pretty good about it. One of them is called Close Couple featuring 2 Sea Stars that look like they are hugging. Unfortunately, i got the flu yesterday so i wasn't able to celebrate with my friends. Bum deal.

I'm learning but I seem to do more in a classroom. I did have a little session this morning and was pretty pleased with the result. I don't want to "change" my photos but I do want to dodge and burn, crop, and basically do what I could do in a darkroom. It is fun, however, to do some of the Over the Top stuff. LOL

That stinks Dee. good luck finishing it up. I do know there's lots of free tutorials (for learning photoshop and the likes) if you look. i've got several links bookmarked. There are even sites that teach HTML and CSS. I started an online/homestudy course for Graphic Design..but i let it slide and it's just nearly impossible to do with 4 kids running around the house constantly wanting attention. i figure if i really want this, i'm gonna have to find a local school that teaches it.

anyway..have a fabulous weekend. we're off to the pumpkin patch and to a local vinyard for grapes :D

I was taking Web and Graphic design courses when the school went bankrupt. There are still things that I want to learn. www.Lynda.com has a lot of online courses and videos. I don't know what the prices are.
