Also I thought I'd share some new work with you all. The above pictures were just finished! First we have a brindle and white Whippet curled up in his blanket. This one is mixed media all the way! The dog was done in acrylics and colored pencil on paper and then cut out. I then strategically placed a tea towel around the paper cut out on my scanner and scanned them. Then I used my computer to make the pretty patchwork background and stuck it all together in Photoshop. The other piece is an adorable English gentleman bunny named Sir Edmund Bunny. I may offer prints of these two in the near future. In the works right now are another Whippet and a pink flamingo. Enjoy :)

HA HA! I lost two pounds! Two pounds in two days, I'm well on my way now and am feeling overly confident! I just finished a half hour of pilates and am eagerly awaiting the next set later today. And, I'm going to do something most women would never ever do.... I'm going to tell my current weight! Because what's the point in posting about weight loss excitement if I don't tell what my weight is in the first place? Sooooooo, here goes, I currently weigh 145 pounds! A little embarrasing but my goal is to lose AT LEAST 20 pounds, although I wouldn't be at all unhappy if I lost more than that :). So there you go, I'm going to keep my blog updated on my progress. Maybe I'll post my weight every week. I was so excited after weighing myself that I phoned my husband at work just to tell him the good news :).

Look what Liam's daddy brought home for him (pictures above)! His first pair of real big boy shoes! He still doesn't know what to do with himself when wearing them. He no longer tries to walk, instead he now marches because he finds his big clunky feet to be very awkward :)

Yesterday I started my quest to lose weight. I'm eating SUPER healthy, drinking plenty of water, and doing a half hour of pilates twice a day plus 100 crunches everyday. So far I'm tired but I already feel better than usual. I feel so positive about this and I'm feeling happier knowing that I'm doing something that is not only good for me but also good for my son because a happier mummy means a happier baby :). So right now I'm snacking on raw brocolli, carrots, plain almonds and gogii berries (SP?).
I got a painting finished today! The above picture is of a chestnut Gypsy Cob mare on a floral patchwork background. The horse was done in acrylics and colored pencils on paper and the background is made up of floral patterned papers patched together in Photoshop.
On Sunday I will officially be opening my new website and my new Etsy shop! I'm nervous about it but hopefully all will go well :)
