I've already blogged about my one little word for 2011 ("health") and my resolutions for the year. Today I wanted to share a bit more about my intention for the year: to be fabulous at fifty. I have a friend and former colleague named Susan who discovered her photography muse in her 40's. She takes stunning black and white portraits. Several years ago, she did a series called "This is what 50 looks like." to celebrate her 50th birthday and the 50th birthday of some friends. And the idea has stayed with me. That fifty is creative and empowered. That fifty is health and strong. And smart, too. So, as I am entering my fiftieth year, my intention is to celebrate being fifty and fabulous. I thought about all that as I was creating this art journal page this morning. The stamp is from Stampotique. It was a prize from their fabulous design blog, which you can see here. I decided to use it as my "something new" for the Drunken Stampers challenge, posted here. The girls are sitting on a piece of rusted grungeboard dock, which is based on this weeks Compendium of Curiosities challenge, found at this blog post. I used to be afraid of my age. I'm not anymore. Are you? If not, please feel free to post it in the comments.
