Yes, I am a bit late with this. I have been removed from the blog world for a while. Sorry to say that my new year did not start out so happy. It started with a death in our family--and other difficult things happening simultaneously.
Even so, I do not believe in "bad" years or even "bad" days. It's all about moments; even in grief there are moments of happiness.
So, today I am embracing 2009. I'm looking forward to to working on the resolutions and goals I've set. I have 21. They are listed under three categories:
Health/Wellness/Spiritual - Improve fitness level. Exercise at least 3-4 times/week for 1.5 hours. (I've been letting other things get in the way.)
Professional - Have a website up and running by the end of May. (That's when my web design class ends.)
Home/Family - Be greener. (Made some changes in past couple of years, but could do better.)
About the last one, I am playing around with ideas for recycling plastic bags as art/craft. I made plastic bag yarn to be used for crochet or weaving. Today I am going to try fusing plastic bags. If you are interested, here is a great link at craftzine.
The idea of doing this is suddenly making resolutions feel like fun. The beginning of the year made me forget about fun. I remember now! Creative exploration equals: f-u-n!
Here's to more fun in 2009!
