you are doing great michelle. when the time comes for me to start training we'll have to sit down and you'll have to let me pick your brain. .. What to expect. what to do, what not to do, etc. I'm having really bad knee pain right now so I'm really hoping it doesn't get in the way. plan is san diego 2010. have a great time in eugene...you are almost there!

your creative family time looks like such perfect fun ! I wish I had a group of friends who all like to do the creative thing with me once a week or once a month ! Have to set that as a goal for myself, i think !
Love that journal cover and your pages ! Awesome !

Good luck with the training !Remember to drink !!!!Cheers !


hang in there with the next few weeks of training! YOU can do it...

I drove the Boulder course on Sunday...and I'm feeling crazy for registering! Lots of rolling hills and dirt roads!

I love the bright colors on the journal cover- gimme coffee! (we think alike...ha ;))


Love the colors!! Using rice is such a fantastic idea! How fun. =D


Enjoy your blog...keep up the running. I'm glad the weather is getting warmer because I hate running in the cold.


16 Miles?! I would fall over if I ran two miles. Love the creativity flowing from your mom and Terri! Very inspirational.....Thanks,


Love the pages and hope your feeling better!

My father-in-law is in the hospital
and needing prayers. They don't know
what is wrong yet, but he is in so much pain.
His name is Wallace. Please Pray for Him!

God Bless You and Yours and Your
Creative Life and Health!!!


PS. What a cleaver idea using rice!
Love the white matchy matchy and
I love mismatched too!
I am mismatched myself but I would
love to be matchy matchy too! LOL!


love the coffee page! it turned out great!
I wanted to tell you that i am so appreciative that you showed me how to make my jounal. i love the look of my jounal and i just can't stop gazing at it! i never could have made it without you. i will have to post some pictures on my blog.
