My Creative Space

So far I've got the inspiration....


 The materials....


And the space....


Does this count as a work-in-progress if I haven't technically started yet?  This week a new shower curtain motivated me to finally finish up the bathroom refurbishing we began months ago with a simple paint-job.  Rather than buy a new bathmat, I'm going to try to breathe new life into a pile of getting-a-bit-dingy towels.  I'm not really sure how terry will hold up to the rag-rug style, but it seems like the thickness of the material should make pretty quick work of it.

In other news....today I finally dusted off the storage box that holds my running clothes (literally --  it was pretty dusty) after I heard myself saying "I really ought to make time for exercise" to one friend too many.  I mean seriously, Jen -- do it already. Sure, I'm busy.  Our lives are full....but do I not have 30 minutes twice a week to devote to my health and mental well-being? In fact I do.  Sleep has been slightly better lately, and as my little ones get more independent, I know I can get away more easily.  I'd love to get back into the running habit....as with everything else -- we'll see how we go.

Playing along with the lovely Kootoyoo (for the last time this year!)  Pop over to Kirsy's creative space to find links to many more.....

You can do it. It just takes a couple of nice days with a bit of sunshine and the opportunity to get out. I've started running this year and I had a really good routine going but have fallen into a heap over the last few weeks - I blame it entirely on the weather! Any exercise is so good for your mental and physical wellbeing. Have fun.

That sounds like a terrific idea. Recycling the old towels, oh yeah!

And going back to the running is also a great idea. You go girl!

It felt so good to wake up with sore legs this morning! I've run two days in a row now; I think it just takes a mental shift to think of myself as a "runner" again. Thanks so much for the encouragement!
