Sunday Weekly Wrap Up

Although I have been busy - with creating ATCs, taking part in several memes and challenges, doing the weekly wrap up was just not happening for a few.

I had said a while back that after coming back from holidays I needed to step back a bit from blogging and take part only as I wanted, not because I felt I must.
I have been taking part in the GPP challenges and enjoying them I realized a couple of days ago that I hadn't posted what I had created. So I thought I would combine it on this wrap up.

GPP #44 - In a Scrape
Using a couple of old plastic cards, I had fun scraping paint on paper. Here are my results:




I used this one for the Day of the Dead ATCs below

I have been involved in many swaps with ATCsforall. Here are a few I have completed:

Full Moon Dreamboard/ Fall Tree of Intentions

Last week was both the beginning of fall and the full moon. I really enjoyed creating my tree of intentions

 



Photography

I have been involved in 365 days of photography with Madeline Bea since Sept. 1.
Here are some of my favourite shots.

More pictures of "Knit the Bridge" - a fascinating art project in Cambridge




A spider - tried for a closer macro shot - have to work on the different settings!
100 Days to a Healthier Me!
My next project is not an artistic one but a healthy one - 100 days of healthy living. My tree of intentions got me fired up to finally (!!!) do something about my weight and my health. In just over 100 days I will turn 59 and I am worried that if I don't do something soon, my health will get worse.
So, after all the wishful thinking and writing about what I wanted to do, I am committing to eating better, exercising and taking care of my health!
