hey, there & happy monday to you!
so, we all have different ways to cope with life’s issues. my regular therapy includes art & exercise. I also go & talk with a very special lady [aka my counselor, though she is so much more] about once a month.
I’m working on a big piece of art, 48x60 inches. it’s an abstract piece that is called “matrix of wonder.” for having such an incredible name, it is a simple piece. it leaves much to the viewer…

I have been painting on the back porch, with wind chimes & children & a dog running around!
when my husband-personal trainer arrives back home from errands, we will have our workout [full body with weights] , also on the back porch. working out is getting me geared up for running again. I love running!

we have a sweet set up for our work & hobbies here at this bohemian home!=) we are ever so blessed.
soon, brian [the trainer-hubs], will be posting workout playlists & short, workout videos. what do you think of this? what sort of exercises would you like to see? he currently teaches a bootcamp style class, group sessions, & of course one on one training.
here is my last video for some creative inspiration! peace out!

my grandma gave me a set of vintage, card catalog drawers! I am so excited.
this is what the drawers looked like…

they are super sturdy. I wanted a bit of color but didn’t want to alter them completely. yet. so I painted the knobs [after I cut off the rods with a dremel].

i popped the painted knobs back in. what do you think?

on a side note, did you know these drawers are large enough to hold a bottle of wine?!? there are so many uses for them! mine will house, hole punches, corner rounders, pens, stamps, etc.

if you have drawers similar or had some of these, what would you use them for?

I’m off to do some yoga. happy monday, everyone! =)
