From Let Down to Turn-Around

Well, I'm a little bummed to say that, due to the weather (and therefore directly affecting the amount of 'idiot drivers' on the road) I canceled my trip into DC on Saturday and rather, spent it with my dear friend who is recovering in the hospital. The hope is that I'll make it to the Basilica sometime after work this week...we'll see...

On a more optimistic note: I got my Artfire shop linked up to my Facebook page(s) also motivated me to finally publish my Vance Studios Facebook page

In other events, I've started to do a "Makeover" on myself and my life! I signed up for a gym membership a few weeks ago, and I've been going NEARLY everyday since then...some days are harder to get there than others! But my short term goal is to regain about half of my wardrobe that's been 'off limits' for a long long term goal is to drop thirty! I do have to remind myself every few days that the first thing is building muscle, losing inches, then losing the excess.

I've also decided to dedicate time to a local youth group. I'm no longer coaching soccer, so I have a whole in my life in more than one I thought that it would be the best way for me to meet other young adults in the area AND to serve this group of high schoolers! I'm really looking forward to the adventure that is in store for me! :)

Well, I have some ideas for a few more prints to add...let's see if I can actually stay put long enough to get them done! ;)

Back in the Swing of it!

I've been a little bit of a slacker lately towards my art...and thus my blog! In my defense, I did spend all last week after work preparing my house for a surprise birthday party for two of my college friends! This week, I still haven't recovered from the lack of sleep...

I'm looking forward to this weekend...for one, I get to sleep in (YAY!) but I'm getting the Nikon back out (first time since the vacation!). I've joined a DC/Maryland/Virginia photography group and I'm going out for on outing! We're going to the National Shrine in DC (Not to be confused with the National Cathedral...that's in a few weeks!) I've been to the Shrine many times before, but mainly for the purpose of Mass...not photography! I'm really looking forward to the trip! Next Saturday, I'm going to the Bull Run's actually really close to my house, and to think that I've lived in the Civil War Battleground State of Virignia for....far more years than I would like to remember...and I've never yet been to see them!

Hope to post and list some new prints this weekend! :)

Artfire Set-up

Wow! After almost THREE months of having a verified Artfire account ( I have finally scrambled up the energy to FINISH my shop set up! This morning (slightly procrasting going to the gym!) I decided that I was going to add my banner, some categories, and 18 new prints! That's a good start, although I have a LOT more that I would love to get into the shop! I'm really excited to see where this update takes me from here!
