I started a new position in the college I work at. I'm now in charge of student engagement, aboriginal students, intercultural activities and leadership, and sustainability. It's kind of a huge job and while it's awesome because I love all the elements in it, it's a huge learning curve and big enough to actually be 3 jobs. Budget cuts have led to it being all fit into one position. Lucky me!
In all seriousness though, it's a pretty amazing gig and it was time to change focus. I was getting bogged down in the dramas of my old office.

I've lost 13lbs (which isn't much more than last time I wrote but I didn't gain during the bad month, so that's just plain amazing). I'm still working on finding a balanced, sustainable approach to health and fitness and everything else. Trying to get exercise in on a daily basis, but also make time for the things I love. That will likely get easier as Baby Faye settles back into a happy space.
I'm actually starting to feel the urge to make time for crafty stuff again, though I admit that I'm daunted by the idea of stepping foot in my craft space. It's kind of a disaster! Here's what creativity looks like these days:
|My kid is obsessed with transport. It's redonkulous. Who knew trains and tractors were so damn exciting? I didn't!|
|We painted the bathroom. It was white before but because it was so dark, it looked grey and blah. Hoping the fresh colour will perk things up. I want to add blues and green into the mix, like the image below|
I'm also working on an entrance project to make our entry look something a bit more like this:
It's not an exact match, but it's the main point of inspiration for the entry way. We have a friend who will build the bench and shelf for us. Not sure about the colour yet. I'd it to be bold and make a statement. But not red. I've have enough red in my house! The wood will have a more antique feel to it. I'm excited. This is a project I've wanted done for a long time. I can't wait to share the finished project.
