Holiday Card, 2009

This year, I thought I'd try and make my holiday cards.  I printed these out as borderless 4x6 prints and affixed them to the front of blank photo mount cards. 

The inside says, "...and a Happy New Year, too!  No matter how you celebrate, may the peace and beauty of the holiday season be with you throughout the coming year."

November Scrap n' Art Challenge: Thank Someone!

Made this page for a challenge over at Scrap n' Art.

Journaling says:  In November 2008, I began one of the most challenging journeys of my life - I became a student of Aikido at Itten Dojo. In a year’s time I have lost 20 lbs., lowered my resting heart rate and blood pressure, dropped five clothing sizes,  increased my muscle mass and strength and passed my first belt test.

More important, however, is the fun I have had (and continue to have!) & the friends I have made there.

Thank you, Sensei, for accepting me as a student and for offering the best Aikido curriculum around. And thank you to all my dojo mates who have taught and trained with me, pushed and encouraged me, supported and challenged me, laughed and nursed injuries with me and made training fun and satisfying. You are the best!

Journaling says: You are all so special to me -- I admire my husband for working so hard to provide for us, being my best friend and a great dad; my children for their boundless energy, creativity, intelligence, sweetness and for their joyful senses of humor; and my brother for being rock solid, a great friend and constant partner in crime! I love you all more than I could say!
