PONDERING POLITICS
Life Inc. and Food Inc.
Life Inc.’s video promo makes me hopeful that there are people in the world who are thinking outside of the box when it comes to how we might turn around our government’s financial crisis and overspending habits. This author’s philosophy is capitalism and free market at it’s best.
and this….
Food, Inc.has forever changed the way I think about my food purchasing choices and how I want to eat. I am inspired that as individuals we have monumental power through our food purchases which can CHANGE our overall health AND food legislation.

READING BOOKS
After watching Food, Inc, I became a little obsessed with this stack of books. Knowledge is power.

READING BLOGS
One of my all time favorites and one that I visit just about every day for inspiration, style, art, and her dream of moving to “The Village”, check out The Cottage Nest.

WORKING ON
My newest dream…an etsy shop, Buttercup Farm Goods

ARTISTICALLY INSPIRED BY
During the quiet days of the snowstorm I took these on-line classes which have inspired me to commit more time to my art.

Alisa Burke’s Canvas Collage, Recycling Remix, Whimsical Women
and this….
Mary Ann Moss’s class, Remains of the Day

IN THE BUTTERCUP FARM ART STUDIO
I started my Paris Dreambook after I completed the Remains of the Day class. Oh, how I love working creatively on the sewing machine. It is in my genes.

FIT BY 40 UPDATE
I lost three pounds before the snow monster hit and then gained it back by shoveling food into my mouth instead of snow outside. So for now I report…Net ZERO. I guess I am going to have to give up eating for lent:-)

Tulip snapped this picture…I am loving how the belt tricks me into thinking that I have a waist.
