I'm feeling blue today

And that's not a bad thing! Last night was the physical test at karate and I passed for my blue belt! I'm excited about that for several reasons. First of all, its one step closer to that ultimate belt - the black! Its been a tough fall and winter for me so being able to physically and mentally get myself to class and to learn what needed to be learned was a challenge. A challenge that, based on last night, I not only passed but conquered! The other reason is a selfish and petty one but I can now poo-poo when the announcers on the poker shows talk about how great Kathy Liebert is because she has a blue belt in karate! Don't know what it is about that lady but she rubs me the wrong way for sure!

Bob also earned his blue belt last night. Jeanne will get hers tonight at graduationa and Linden will get her half orange/half yellow! Her goal is to earn her orange belt and move up to the black belt training class before she turns 6. She is now one belt away and going strong!

My other exciting news is that I have had my image "The Wishing Flower" accepted into The Sixth Street Gallery's April show - Natural Beauty. I am surprised and thrilled to be accepted as they had a huge number of submissions for this show. As much as I like to think that I am confident in my skills as an artist, it is always flattering to know that some one out there thinks my work is worthwhile!

So now you know why I am blue!!!

I posted a handful of new card sets yesterday - all different dogs. Check 'em out and let me know what you think.
