I'm totally digging Michelle Sarantopulos' use of vintage illustrations in her mixed media work. Such a fun mixture of old and new! Check out her Etsy shop for affordable prints and originals.

sweet visual treats: dina wakley

These art journals by Dina Wakley are just gorgeous - loose, colourful, vibrant, and free. And many of the pages have stars on them! STARS! (In case you weren't sure, I love stars.) Check out more of Dina's awesome artwork on her blog.

11 things in '11: goal number ten

Lesley Myrick 11 Things 2011 Goals List
Five months into the year, and three goals down! (Read about the first two goals I crossed off my list here and here) Goal number ten is about to happen - volunteer with CTI Music Ministries. Nate and I are leaving on Friday to spend the summer volunteering as part of CTI's summer training community. I'm so excited to be back serving with the ministry I spent a year with, and I can honestly say that their ministry changed my life in the most incredible ways.
Want to know more about what we'll be doing with CTI this summer, and how you can help? Take a read! (And of course, here's the complete list of 11 Things in '11.)

Happy Wednesday!

Aren't these mixed media pieces by Vincenzo Rizzo just gorgeous? I love how loose and expressive they are. And the best part is that originals and prints are incredibly reasonably priced at his Etsy Shop. Love!

I'm totally loving the quirky prints at Etsy shop Coco de Paris. A dog wearing glasses? A zebra in a box?  Count me in.

11 things in '11: goal number seven

Slowly but surely, I'm tackling my 11 goals for 2011! In full swing now is number 7: start a fitness routine. I found this workout on Pinterest, of all places - and I love it!
I love that you don't need any fancy equipment (except that I add fancy soup cans to work my arms during the leg lifts and squats), and it's easily doable in thirty minutes. And yes, for the record, this workout is totally kicking my butt.

You can see the rest of my goal process here.
Happy Wednesday! What's your routine to keep fit and healthy?
Much love,

sweet visual treats: a girl and her brush

Not only is Wendy Brightbill's art gorgeous, but her story is amazing - painting has been part of her healing process after a brain injury she suffered in a car accident. (Art is so powerful and affects the heart and mind in so many ways!) Visit Wendy's Etsy shop and website for more beautiful inspiration.

Happy Tuesday! What inspires you to keep going through hard times?
Much love,
