Sweet little kisses
I think that me and children under the age of five are the only people who find popsicle jokes hilarious. When I say hilarious, I mean it. I have been known to lose my breath because I am laughing so hard at these puns. Popsicle’s one liners often make their way into my repertoire of jokes. The most recent addition is the one pictured above.

I have officially started my art collection!
Collecting other artists’ works is a hobby I have dreamed about for years. My mom knows of my interest and took it upon herself to start my collection. As a holiday gift she purchased Le Donneur (The Giver) a mosaic by Kath Jones. I fell in love with this piece months ago at Ciel Gallery, a studio and gallery space where my mom and I take mosaic classes.
The end of January is quickly approaching and I have to admit that even though we are only into a few weeks of 2012, I am struggling at times to stay motivated with my New Year’s resolutions. I strongly believe that positive thinking leads to good things; therefore, I created what I am calling my Mantra Menu. Hopefully, this inspirational list will help me stay motivated through the year. I have hung this list on my bedroom mirror, so I can read it every morning before I leave for the day.
How do you stay positive and motivated?
