Run Like The Wind

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on September 6, 2010

Happy Labour Day! I hope you are enjoying a lovely day off and are sleeping in right now!

I like to spend my holidays by getting up at 4:15am. I am sick like that.

Let me rewind to last night…

The Dizzy Bizzy Board was stressing me out a bit. Actually, it was giving me the spins and I decided it had to go ASAP. ;)

Really, this was just an excuse for another Michaels trip… ;)

I emerged with new scrapbooking paper and the will to make a less dizzy & bizzy vision board.

I decided that I would use a solid background colour (orange) and then accent with prints. Problem solved.

I have been using these double-sided photo stickers and they work like a charm!

They come right off with no tearing. I also used a photo glue stick for a couple sections when necessary.

Here is the new vision board:

Much more easy on the eyes. ;)

I think it actually matches better with the warm colours + wood!

I like the ‘Trust’ over the heart!

What a fun project!

Eric also hung this frame in a new spot (it used to be above my desk before the Mykonos painting went up).

The bookcase is still a work in progress, but it is getting there!

Then I went through all my personal and business files.

When I was done, I moved my new 2010 file to an easily accessible spot by the fax/scanner. If it is out in the open I am much more likely to use it!

Then I operated on our printer that all of a sudden decided to stop working this week! Hrmph.

I got it to print black ink, but it is still rejecting the magenta ink that we installed. Very strange. I think we might have to get it serviced. Luckily it is still under warranty.

This morning, I stumbled downstairs at 4:15am and ate some delicious vegan overnight oats that were waiting for me. It made getting up for the race a bit easier. :)

Pre-Race Hydrating Mango & Strawberry Vegan Overnight Oats

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 2.5 tbsp chia seeds <– lots of chia seeds because they are great for runners & very hydrating
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 mango, cubed
  • 3 strawberries, chopped

 

Here it is last night when I mixed them up. The mango was so good in this.

I better get on the road so I am not late!

Just a reminder that today is the final day that you can vote in the Portabella Playoff! Thanks for your support everyone. :)

It’s time for me to run like the wind….Eeeeee.

I am an organization freak! Getting up at 4:15 and organizing stuff sounds like something I would do.

hahaha why would you have a sticker that says “i’m a quitter!” on your vision board?!

Angela (Oh She Glows) September 6, 2010 at 1:11 pm

It’s an inside joke….ALSO a famous print by natalie Dee (see here: http://www.nataliedee.com/) AND I happen to think it is funny since I quit my job and there is usually a negative connotation with quitting but sometimes it can be a positive experience! :)

This is so true! Quitting a relationship that is not healthy for you can be awesome! I just did that today and I feel GOOD!!!

I love the original, but you’re right, the new one looks better!

Love the board! And just a heads up, rubber cement also works great for paper projects. It dries flat and doesn’t warp photos, AND you can still peel it off and reapply if you didn’t like the layout.

Love the boards. Much better the second time around.

Voted on your mushroom recipe–you’re kicking butt! Way to represent Canada! It looked delish, can’t wait to give it a try.

Good luck on the race!

Race looked like a lot of fun! I haven’t run one in a while, maybe this fall I will try a few! Kind of in a fitness funk, so a run always gets you back in the mood!

I love your second vision board. The plain background makes everything else really pop and stand out. You have inspired me to make one now.
