Howdy, folks! Well, I'm back from Jamaica, and let me tell you, there's no place like H-O-M-E! Not that it isn't fun to get away with the extended family and take in the sunshine, but I have to confess, I spent a lot of time wishing I was at home in my stamp room, playing with all the new goodies being released this week by My Favorite Things!
At least I came home in time for MFT's Teaser Day 5 so I can show you a peek at the latest Who's That Girl? image, Let's Get Physical. One of my New Year's Resolutions from last year was to run a 5-K, and I actually kept it. Before last spring, I had never run a mile in my life. I overcame my inertia thanks to a local Couch-to-5K program, and by the end of October, I was logging up to 11 miles on my long runs, had participated in three 5-Ks, and had even ran a 15-K. Of course, that's when I suffered a stress fracture in my heel, so I've been cooling my jets ever since. Still, as soon as I get released by my doctor, I'm lacing up my shoes and getting started again (though this time I'm going to take it a little easier).
In the meantime, the new WTG set inspired me to create my own race bib folio. Check it out:
I've seen similarly sized bib folios (8"x8") sold on the web for around $40, but they aren't nearly this cute. Wouldn't this be a great gift for the runner in your life? All you need is some cardstock, this oh-so-appropriate image, and a couple of binder rings. Of course, it wouldn't hurt to have the Stacking Stars Die-namic, in case you want to create a similar starry wreath around your focal image.
I just love this sentiment:
The quote is actually from an MFT gardening set -- I think perhaps an exclusive mini set from one of the VIP kits? (One more reason to become a VIP purchaser!) -- but it holds true for excercise, too. I used the brand new Layered Label Die-Namic to frame the sentiment out.
