Today has been a day of challenges...

first challenge, 1a- got up way too early for I could work on some stuff I started last night, I finished the piece I did for this weeks Creative Challenge on etsy.

Everyweek my lovely friend Aimee at jewelstreet runs challenges so we can all get out of our creative ruts. I did the piece called "Steel Beauty". I really liked it, I loved the image, her dark eyes, very 1920's, like a cool Russel Patterson illustration...loved it. I really want to remember to use these colors and this type of feel again...I always forget when I say I am going to do something, hopefully by writing it down, I will remember...I listed the piece in my shop

Challenge 1b- WORK OUT!!!! ok 22 minutes of cardio...done...

Second Challenge- My walk to work...ok, the damn geese have taken over, they were all over the trail in the park, they don't even move for me...bastards, with the beaks and taunting ways. I wasn't even looking, just walking with my head down, defensive, I looked up and they were all around me, I screamed, somewhere between a screech and a yelp...they didn'e even move, just honked and goose-stepped. I hate them,they scare me, and I hate the children who are feeding them, making them linger, the children scare me too.

Third Challenge- my dear friends over at Funky Carter (W. Aaron) challenged their readers to figure out who wouldplay them in a movie...ok, so I wanted to say Angleina Jolie...but I didn't, instead I said Sarah Jessica Parker...more Square Pegs less Sex and the City...though I wish it were the other way around.

Fourth Challenge- stay upbeat and in a good mood, though things are way tense on the home and work front due to financial drama and the like...

but on a plus of our customers/friends left us a few boxes of Hostess, cupcakes...ho-ho's and Suzie-Q's...awesome. Already had 1 cupcake but it's "lite" so it barelky counts

OMG! You need a slingshot. The geese are definitely stalking you. I'm afraid for you. lol. It reminds me of the movie "The Birds". If you have not seen this movie, watch it.

Side note. Love the blog entry by Keith.
