After reading about Melissa's new face lift she did to her blog, I decided it was time to do something about mine. I never did like it. Too plain, too much of the template, not enough me. While Melissa decided to make her blog less colorful, I decided to make mine more colorful. I think it now shows my personality much better.
I have absolutely no HTML skills, and of course, Husband who is a computer programmer could help me. But he is instead sleeping in today. So I had a go at it all by myself. For my header, I decided to use a portion of a patchwork tote bag I made as a Christmas present. I didn't share it with you. Sorry. Here it is.
During October, November, and December I was teaching a severely handicapped special ed class. It was such a wonderful experience, mostly because I had the best staff to work with. My teacher's aid got this bag. Hi Cathy!
Here is another item I've made lately and not shared. It's a Walkman CD player purse. I decided that sticking the thing in my bra just wouldn't do when I went out of the house.
I put two CD pockets inside. I listen to books on tape while I sew and when I go for walks.
I joined the YMCA this last week and took two step aerobic classes and did one day of weight training. I feel great. I think the last of the diet soda and sugar substitute poison is out of my system. I'm starting to think I could like to exercise. Not love it, but maybe like it somewhat. None of my clothes feels like their going to fall off of me yet, but maybe soon! Then I'll really have a new look.
