Woke up yesterday morning and had this strange feeling that my life is going to change. No idea what, where, when or how. So, being the optimistic person that I like to think I am, I decided to be aggressive. I enjoyed making the sign for mom's door...so decided to make one for my bedroom mirror:
Letters from Zsiage...stickles glitter and then cut out the background papers with a craft knife. Pretty simple.
But "change" can also mean coins....so I moved my coin jar right in front of my mirror. Perhaps I'm supposed to save my pennies a little more than I have been?
Next, I decided that if there is to be change in my life, then I need to move. Now, "move" can be physically moving my body which I truly need to do...or it can be moving to a new residence, a new city, a true adventure. So I made a sign that says "move":
Maybe it will inspire mt to start walking again. Hey! I did 5 minutes on the treadmill and 5 minutes on the bike today...so I "moved" something!"
And then I decided if there is going to be change in my life, perhaps it's that I need to put my life on a "diet". OK, I need to put my body on a diet for certain, but perhaps I need to reign in my life, cut back, reorganize, restructure, things like that. I could certainly put my studio on a diet! So I made yet another sign. This time I used 5 1/2" letters from Zsiage and stamped on them.
And yep, I put it on the refrigerator door right where I can see this. With the hopes I think before I eat!
There is no way to take that without the glare! I tried! But you get the idea. Here it is a little closer, a little better:
And then I used some of my recent fav stamps. Some Stickles. My newest Basic Grey stamp....I love that floral border! And Ranger's white pen.
I do love the stamp of the 4 girls....that's me and my 3 sisters, of course! Mom wants a class using this stamp next time. Hmmm......
And lots of swirls. Just such fun!
It's pretty funny that every time Kerry goes off on a trip (and he's gone right now) I tend to change something in this house. Usually I move furniture all around. But this time...I haven't changed a thing. Instead, I made signs about change. He gets home tonight and then leaves again Wednesday for his next trip....so don't you know he is going to see this as a sign that I'm going to do a major furniture move when he's gone? LOL! No....I just feel like there is a major life change coming my way and I want to embrace it, maybe even beat it to the punch!
Even if all I do is save my pennies, walk a little more, and watch what I eat....the change will all be good!
