Me? A runner? Not hardly!

That is exactly what I would say about 3 months ago to my friend Joanna when she would tell me about this podcast program she started. There was no way I was going to run. No way, no how! HA!

Here I am in August about to graduate from the 5k101 program. I have one more 30 min run to do to consider myself graduated, and I run my first 5k September 4th!!
I am so excited and happy that I have finished the program. It starts you off slow and you watch yourself build week upon week. I can see progress and feel progress, and I have lost over 10 inches and 10 pounds all together so far.
Now my goal is to run 30 minutes 3-4 times a week. I will build on that eventually. But I am excited to have gone this far in two months!

Anyone that has looked for an exercise program that is encouraging and challenging, I would suggest this one to them. You can keep up with other runners for encouragement and accountability on runningmates facebook page as well.

Super excited to keep on going and see how far I can get :)

I really wish I had more of these Gogo boots to paint on, but I only have two size 9 toddlers left. They are adorable, and such a cool movie to paint from for Halloween.
Jennifer of Jade n Roses took the awesome pictures for me, Thank you!

The Ghastlies

Hand Painted to match Alexander Hanry's fabric line called the Ghastlies, these Chucks were a BLAST to paint. I was asked to do a design collaboration with Jennifer of Jade n Roses Couture on eBay to match her TO DIE FOR Halloween set for the Fairycakes Peek a Boo Launch.

This collab was soooo much fun and full of tricks and treats! I would like to thank all the girls who joined in our Fantastic Launch!!

Hand Painted Skullie Converse

I have ALWAYS Loved Skulls of all kinds. Some people think that they remind them of death. But for some reason they remind me of life. They don't creep me out, I love them with floral motifs and lots of color. So when Bethany asked me to collab with her on a skull set, I just couldn't say no, now could I? Since these have been listed, I have also sold a pair of skullie pink converse to a lady who's 50th birthday party will have the theme of the pink skulls and she wanted them for herself to wear to her Birthday. See, Life!
Once the bidding on this pair of custom skullie Chucks for kids is over, I will keep them in my ebay store, at 65.00 for children and 85.00 for adults.
Message me if you are interested in a pair!
