Lots of Art to share and Happiness….

Img_4559 Had a great weekend I hate to see it go…. I started Sunday with my 5 mile walk. I missed my walk in Arizona around the Park and Pond. I finally found the right path here. I mean I love walking on the Beach and there is nothing like it, but sometimes the parking on the Weekends is really hard. I think it is changing now that summer is over. I was thinking to myself as I was walking on my new cool path, why I love to walk  so much. Not for the exercise (even though the benefits are amazing), not to lose weight (always struggle with those last 10 pounds and I think I always will) but I do it because it really clears my head and calms my body and mind down. I have always been a hyper active person. I am a person that worries and thinks about everything. I don’t sleep as well as other people do at night. I cant take naps during the day. Walking takes away all the negative thoughts that run through my head from time to time. Ive noticed that I hardly have negative thoughts anymore. It also helps that I have a very positive husband. He really is that much of a nice guy. The Boat can be sinking (which it has a couple of times in our marriage) and he just knows in his heart that everything will be alright. He just says why focus on what could go wrong? Or if it does go wrong,  change it. Great Man. So there you have it. If you are as hyper as me or feeling a little down and negative, my advice to you is take a long walk. Better than prozac.

I did do some Art that did not involve Halloween. I know, I took myself out of that mode somehow. I altered a ugly brown metal tool box that I found for 1.99….. great for all my scissors and tools.  I worked on my HOME journal. Here are some pictures:Img_4564 Img_4565 Img_4566

I also worked on a Scrapbook with a friend from work. I actually Scrapbooked! She needed to do a Book to put advice for the Mother. We used the black and white picture of them….. Img_4557 Img_4568 Img_4569 Img_4570_2 Well lots more to share and will probably post lots of things happening with Books and a magazine that I am in…..Ohhh so excited to share….but until now I hope everyone has a very positive week and lots of Happiness in all the little things……..
