Affirmation and ATCs

This week I am focusing on V - for visualize.

It also stands for Vitality, vim and vigour and vanquish! All great actions and positive affirmations.
My aim is to visualize where I would like to be health wise in 6 months. The measuring tape is a good motivator and symbol of change.
My husband and I have joined Weight Watchers and already I have lost 6 pounds! Woohoo!
This week I need to keep my goal clearly visualized!
I read an article by Alicia Snell in Zoomer magazine. She has lost over 170 pounds and runs marathons. There is an excellent article on her top 10 checklist to eating better. Check it out here.


We are midway through AEDM - Art Every Day Month for November, through Leah of Creative Every Day.
I have not been creating as much this week although I had fun again with some ATCs.
I finished one set on Ancient Egypt.

I am working on several other sets. They are fairly quick and fun themes.
Photography is always fun - there are so many different memes to try your hand at - ABC Wednesday and Shadow Shot Sunday are two that I still participate in. I hope to return to several more as time permits!

Right now though, it is report card time. Assessments, marking and the writing ( actually all the report cards are done online!) take up a big chunk of time. Then it will be parent-teacher interviews.
Soon though it will be Christmas vacation - 2 weeks to unwind and enjoy the season.

I enjoy your blog so much, you always have so many different things on it. Like your ATC's, I would like to do a few, they are small and quick. I miss doing the magazine collages, I really must get back to them. Thanks for stopping by. I feel like I have lost the energy around my blog and really want to get back to doing it every day, I enjoy it so much and check everyone elses every day. Sounds like you have a lot of schools work to do for the next couple of weeks, hope it goes well and quickly so you can get back to creating. Hope your husband is doing well. Take care.

I am so glad to see another teacher on Creative Every Day. I teach first grade in Tampa, Florida and love it! I sometimes feel intimidated with all of the professional artists on the blog but, like you, I am trying to rediscover my creative self. I love the collage. Best of luck in the weight loss department. I have found Weight Watchers to be very helpful in the past. I joined a local running group this past summer and am now finally starting to see some progress in this department.
