New Year

Woo-hoo! I made my first sale on etsy this week. It's an awesome feeling, especially after all the work switching over to a new name and re-doing my banner, etc. There are so many amazing artists on that site, that it's hard not to worry that I'll get lost in the pack. I just keep trudging forward, and I'm still trying to find my niche anyway (in the art world). I love altered art, and so many other forms of art, sewing, photography... I need to focus my energies a little better. (Isn't there some saying about too many irons in the fire?) Here's some new work I've listed on etsy that I've had alot of fun making.
It's back to school on Monday-I'd rather be at home with my daughter working in my studio and decorating my house, but such is life. I'm grateful for such a creative job, I just wish the adults I work with were more gracious. I guess I should be thinking about my goals for this year. I know I want to create a website under my own name, so that my other sites can be linked to it, and people actually know who I am, but I just haven't done it yet. We're having a 'Biggest Loser' competition at work, and I'm entering it next week, so another goal is to work out and walk more regularly. I know my dog will appreciate that too. Isn't Weezer cute? (See pic)
So they are going to declare the winner by the percentage of weight lost, and I need to lose about 25 pounds, so I hope that's enough to win the contest. If some people have more to lose than me, they have until May, so that makes me nervous because they could do it. I've also talked my husband into lifting some weights with me (he's so darn skinny!-In his words-he's "sleek" ). I love him the way he is for sure, but it would be great if he had more energy and felt better. He's 40 (and quit smoking a month ago), so there's never been a better time to start. I should post before and after pics of us, but I don't think I have the courage! (Weezer is not really demon-possessed, it just looks that way because of the flash).
