inspired...

two posts in one day! i wanted to blog about yesterday.. i felt inspired. there were a few times over the course of my day i was hit with feelings of hope and inspiration. i felt accomplishment and encouragement. i got to go to stay and play at my church which is always fun. its nice to be with other moms and interesting to watch my kids watch other kids and have new toys to play with. things like that help me stay in the game.. being a sahm is hard and some days feels so lonely.. i got to meet a fellow blogging mom Stacey whose blog i read but had never met. that was so nice. got out walking with the boys in the sunshine. yes finally we have sunshine. something about being outside that brings life. to me and the boys.
in the evening i attended a class at My Scrap Shoppe that I have been looking forward to for weeks. We altered a 16x20 canvas. Mine looked like this: (if you click on it you can see it bigger)I was pretty happy with it. I had such a great time. Felt so inspired and enjoyed spending time with the people there. I met another blogging mom Eva whose site I have lurked on for awhile. It was such a great evening. Can't remember one better in a long time! They really encouraged me in my creativity and to stop being so insecure and even convinced me to sign up for Super Scrap Day next weekend. It was a big step in the right direction as I remember to stop telling myself lies and to just be..... creatively ME!

Your canvas turned out great, Heather! I enjoyed the evening, too. It was really fun hanging out with you and the other girls, being creative, etc. Looking forward to seeing you at SSD!

Hi Heather,

Been checking out your blog for a little while and thought I'd delurk today to tell you that your canvas is so great! I think it's inspired me to try my hand at it. I do the odd card making workshop, but had never thought to do something like that. It's awesome!

Your boys are adorable - not like you didn't know and I like the blog's new look!

Hey Heather! I love your new look here, and I love your canvas too. I've always been on the fence about scrapbooking, not sure if I want to get into it. Maybe when I come home we could go together some time?
