Next, I have to share with you a Giveaway I won from Marsha at Tumble Fish Studio. I just ♥L-O-V-E♥, not only the present itself, but the way Marsha packaged it up. I honestly felt like it was my birthday, only without getting another year older already. The envelope was gorgeous and then inside was purple paper wrapped goodness, postcards of her work, and then ta-dah! my matted artwork! Wow....
Isn't this petite print GORGEOUS?

Though I consider it to be a complete waste of time for me to be feeling panicky and anxiety-ridden, it is there all the same.
Some days are like that.
It's what I do with them that can make a difference.
I've been told by those close to me that I am extremely hard on myself.
I'll try not to be, today.
You try, too.

The cold is brightened today by the most wonderful sunshine.
I woke up so early this morning that I've already done a lot of house cleaning, journaling, and creating in the PaperPumpkin room, and it's barely noon.
I am a morning person, but never counted on waking up way before dawn on a vacation day.
It's been really nice though!
Lots of time for more fun now! What will I do?
Wishing you a fun-filled, creative day!

I'll be playing inside today, thank you very much. See, spring only snuck in one day last week so I would know what I was missing. I woke up on my first vacation day today to learn that my husband, Michael, had already been out for 5 hours snowblowing driveways. Can you see his hat all covered in ice? Ugh. Give me hot coffee...and that hot shower. I'll wake up my way!

Valentine's Day was fast and furious, especially with 24 second graders and a 10-hour work day, but good none-the-less. Some people may not think much of this red heart holiday, but I have always loved it. Little Valentine cards passed around and handwritten for friends, foil wrapped candies and lollipops, and frosted heart shaped cookies. So many 8-year olds saying "thank you". I love it.

I had to put Yoga on hold because my back just couldn't move properly when I asked it to. I've always been a very flexible person, but for some reason, for the past four months, I haven't been myself. That's probably one reason I chose the word Stretch in the first place (or it chose me). I felt compelled to get back my fitness and flexibility after a lengthy struggle with health in 2010.
Well, I'm in physical therapy and am working hard. But every day, I move like I am 85 years old. My Stretch-i-n-g only lasts hours, then I am back to square one. Like a tight rubberband.
