Ten on Tuesday

1| This weekend, I felt like creating something a bit out of my comfort zone. I have had this small canvas sitting around for awhile now. I decided to paint it and add some rubons and ribbon. It makes me happy. I have it on my dining room/office table, so I can look at it while I work.

2| I've been ma'am(ed) lately way more than I'm comfortable with. This does not make me happy.

3| I saw two movies this weekend. The first was Morning Glory. This was a cute, fun movie. I laughed a lot. The second was The Kids Are All Right. I didn't like this movie. I am actually surprised it was nominated for an Oscar.

4| I've been volunteering a lot more lately. This weekend, I spent two hours watching 3 and 4 year olds. They are full of great energy and happiness and fun ideas and it's awesome to be a part of their day. I'm working at two food banks later this week. It feels really good to be meeting new people and giving back.

5| I walked outside for the first time. Birds chirping. Green sprouting out from everywhere. Heads held high toward the sun. People acknowledging each other and saying hello. We survived.

6| I am not usually a fan of yogurt because of the consistency, but my sister suggested I put it in the freezer for awhile. Genius idea! I also tried the new fad, Greek yogurt. I liked it.

7| I got out my spring and summer clothes. I always love doing this because, inevitably, there are a couple of pieces that I forgot I had. It's like getting new clothes. I'm also loving all the colors that are laking in my winter wardrobe.

8| Dancing with the Stars. Bye-bye Kendra.

9| A couple of books on my wish list. Kristin Hannah's new one, Night Road and The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz.

10| I am a huge fan of Lisa's work. I love this layout of hers. I keep coming back to it and looking at all the awesome detail.

Wow - Just reading through the last few posts from Lisa's blog, and I think I'm a fan! I especially like her real-world tour of her scrap space - sounds a lot like mine!! Thanks for sharing!

Also - I love your canvas - where did you find the cute little stand?

Hi Christine! I'm glad you found a new blog to enjoy. I got the stand at Dick Blick's.
