Cranking it up a notch!

Well it is beginning to feel a bit like summer in upstate NY...

Wildflower out front

and I am thinking it is time to put it into high gear with my art!

Summer

Traci Bunkers has started "30 Days of Get Your Art On"
(I have her button on my right side bar!)
and I'm in!!!!

I am hoping to post art every day this month (or almost every day)!!!

So.....
bright and early this morning, 
I dabbed some acrylic paint on a gessoed art journal spread...

working on July 1 journal spread

scraped the paint with a used credit-type card...

not done but it is a start 
(and all before 5:30 AM!)

Art was followed by a quick run...

Since March

I have not been running as much and as regularly,
so I have challenged myself to run 10x by July 28th!!!

And to pass the time while we watch movies in the evening
(so I don't inadvertently doze off !!!)...

embroidering my house project

I am working on a UFO from my class with Laura on my February quilt cruise...

That's just the tip of the ice berg,
but I don't want to overwhelm you on the first day!
Me on the floor
Stay tuned!!!
