not so lazy days of summer~



doing little things here and there~
and rekindling for good, my love affair with the gym. it feels nice to work on being extra healthy again. i think that the final straw was when my baby sis asked me to be a bridesmaid in her wedding next july. this means that i would be standing amidst lithe and nubile twenty one year olds and honestly, the thought of me standing out in pictures as the older chunky one just wasn't cuttin' it for me. and besides, i have some super cute sixes and eights hanging in my closet that miss me.
also did this fun little project with my friend heather. they were originally going to be roller shades for her son's room, but after we painted them, she decided that they were too wonderful to be rolled up as blinds half the time. so, wall hangings they became. they were cheapies from ikea called the frukna or tival or something along those lines!
heather drew them up and we each painted one after her son (who is one) had gone to bed. the sea serpent belonged to me!
