ABC's of me art journal 2009

Last january I started an art journal....with a group over at TallyScrapper..I can't believe it's been a year...and it was empowering to look back at what I was feeling a year ago....So just being able to be a part of the monthy word prompts, and support..from all the Tally girls over there....and ending up with an awesome journal...I found out I won first place...!!!! so if you ever need some inspiration check out the gallery over there.... http://www.tallyscrapper.com/scrapbook_gallery_challenge.php?challenge_id=216 but that brings me to the fact that they're starting a new art journal for the year.....and it's ABC's of me, and twice a month we will get a prompt...and I decided to do this years journal on a deck of cards...and then I found these baseball card protectors which for me will be mini page protectors...and here is the cover, and I completely lifted the title from their blog title, here is the link to the site http://oneyearartjournal.blogspot.com/

and our first prompt was "Action" which instantly the need for me to become more active came to mind....so that's where I went with it!!
I painted the back of the card...to journal on...



okay on another note....How inspiring was the biggest loser??? Oh my God!! Me and Sommer were laughing through our tears....laughing at ourselves for crying at just the part where they introduce them.....You know they always talk about how they don't think they will live long if they don't lose the weight.....and I guess for my family.....we know that's true!! The contestants are alot bigger than normal...which I feel them...I know what they're feeling, and I know how hard they're going to work......But I found it inspiring that for the first time, I was smaller than alot of them...that has never happened!!! plus when the last season started, I had just started losing weight, and it felt good to know that since the last season started, I'm 82 pounds lighter.....So those shows just inspire me..!!! Our house comes to a stop...between 8-10pm on tuesday nights!!

Wow I bet having a journal to look back on is fabulous. I really should do one.

Today I'm rather sore. Yesterday the trainer had me do circuit training. My lower back is a bit tender. Oh well soon enough that will go away too.
