2014 is my year of Balance.
Last bear I made

My life these past years have been out of balance. I haven't been doing anything creative. I haven't been reading as much. My hobby, sweeping, I haven't kept up with as much as I'd like to. I've been ignoring a healthy lifestyle as well.

This year I plan on making more dolls, bears, bookmarks and art journals. I've opened up an Etsy shop since many of my things are quite nice. I thought this would be a way to inspire me to create and share. Regardless if anyone buys my items, they will at least be on display. Filling up my shop will be a way for me to keep track of how much I'm doing.

I have a journal just for writing the books I'm reading. Having it written down will keep me on track to read more. I like to have a Balance of fiction, non-fiction, memoirs and do-it yourself (crafty) books. I also put them on Goodreads. If anyone wants to join me, this is where I am: Goodreads.

I'm watching what I eat and trying to eat a balance of things. I'm cutting back on fats and excessive calories. I'm not 'dieting'. I don't feel that would help with the Balance I'm seeking. I haven't been exercising like crazy, again I'm trying to achieve Balance. I've been playing more on the Wii and watching my calories on SparkPeople. If anyone wants to join me there: My SparkPage.

My biggest hobby is entering giveaways, otherwise known as "sweeping". I love to enter sweepstakes and win things. Last week I won a Walking with Dinosaurs gift pack. It includes a $25 Visa Card, a dinosaur book and stickers. I also won a signed by the author book called Layers. It is fiction and I'm looking forward to reading it. What I really like about winning books is that it opens me up for books I might not otherwise have picked.

I hope I will gain some friends/followers on this blog to go on this journey of Balance with me.

Thanks for reading!
