Another success this month was starting back into belly dancing after my surgery. I have retained all the muscle memory but the diaphragm is GONE, the endurance no longer exists, and I cannot stretch my abdomen like I used to. I will be unable to perform at the Everyday goddess Hafla May 21st as I told my friend I would, but I will be there to support her. I am working toward re-gaining all that was lost in the months following my surgery and I have to say....it feels so good to be back.
Yet another success was I finished the CHANGE class to patch into HIM (Hogs in Ministry). This will be a great way to do God's work and help lead people to the lord as well as create a conduit for hubby and myself to maintain our relationship. I'm so excited to see what God is calling me to do with HIM.
Last but not least, I met my scrap booking goals. I finished 3 layouts this month which is absolutely amazing for me. Is it bad when you have to set goals so that you actually do your hobby? I had a layout for a fourth contest and was trying to complete it at the Scraptacular but I was too busy and time fell short. I will still finish the LO and post here when done because I truly have outdone myself this time. (not that I'm tooting my own horn or anything;)
This is the page I submitted for the chipboard palooza contest over at Swirlydoos:
The frame around the large picture is chipboard, the flower, and the frame around the sign are too. The paper in Simplicity by fancypants. I designed this page for the chipboard palooza contest over at swirlydoos.com. I was really happ with the way this turned out and had a blast doing it too.
My final LO was for the round robin challenge over at swirlydoos but I haven't taken closeups of that page yet so I will save that for another post.
Please check out the link for the everyday goddess belly dance workshop in Clio Michigan. I know the instructors personally and they are all fabulous ladies. If you click on the photo gallery you will see pics of me dancing too;) The workshops are for beginners who have never danced before so check it out. Hope to see you there;)
