I'm Celebrating with an Art Giveaway

It’s St. Paddy’s day and I’m celebrating being on a health kick! No green beer for me but that’s okay because I’m feeling really, really good!

I’m celebrating the 2 week mark of my 30/30 program which is 30 minutes a day of exercise for 30 days! So far so good! I’m turning 52 in April so I want to be feeling and looking good for my birthday.

Last Sunday, we moved our treadmill inside that was out on the deck. That sure has helped me get my 30 minutes in and I’m so glad I don’t have to run in the cold! I don’t consider myself a “runner” so it is a challenge to do any kind of running for me! But I’m doing it. I started out walk/running and gradually I’m adding in more running than walking. And it’s working. I’m feeling great! I’m also doing yoga, bike riding, weight lifting and dancercize on days when I’m not on the treadmill.

Plus I’m roughly following a healthy diet by Ann Louise Gittleman. She’s written over 25 books on nutrition, dieting and staying healthy. I love what she has to say. I know her from her Fat Flush Plan and Fast Track Detox diet books. If you’re interested in nutrition like I am, you can get lots of info on Gittleman’s website.

Turns out it’s been a year since my last art giveaway so I’m due for another one. I meant to start it on March 5th when I began my exercise program but I forgot.

So here’s how it will work. One person will win two of my inspirational card decks  –  one Inspirational Card  Deck for Wellness and Weight Loss and one Card Deck to nurture your Creative Spirit. I love these cards and I use them myself! They feature my artwork paired with positive affirmations!

Inspirational Card Decks

The two decks will come tied up with golden ribbon in a cute little celestial drawstring bag. I love stars and moons!


They’re tiny cards but they pack a lot of punch with their inspirational words and the colorful art!


The positive affirmations will help you stay on track with your health goals or inspire your creative spirit.


I put them on my window sill.


The contest giveaway will run for one week from March 17th to March 24th, and the winner will be announced on my blog Friday, March 25th.

I will use a random number generator to choose the winner.

Also, please remember to leave your email in the posts so I can contact you if you’re the winner!

    Right now I’m doing Nutrisystem to try and jumpstart my weight loss, trying to use my dog to get me more exercise, but as far as creativity, I am stagnant. I would love to find a way to jumpstart that!

    I am in love with your art…it makes me happy, especially the trees! I have your card deck on creativity and positive affirmations and I LOVE it and have shared some with others. Lately creating poetry and walking in nature have been keeping me grounded.

    Hi Lindy, To keep myself healthy in mind, body and spirit, I love to do Yoga at least 3 times a week. I have been trying to keep careful watch on my eating habits. I believe we are what we eat 🙂
    Love those cards!!!

    I have been trying to be more aware of my eating habits and my exercise routine. Turning 50 tomorrow and recently being diagnosed with fibromyalgia has been a real wake up call for me. Its a hard thing for me to pass up the goodies! I’m trying to start off the next 50 years with a healthier new outlook!

      Pam, Happy Birthday tomorrow! Enjoy your day! Hang in there! I know what you mean about the goodies…I’m trying to cut out sugar too and it is a struggle! Try doing something good for yourself on a daily basis to lift your spirits and move you toward a healthier you.

    My favorite way to stay healthy is i run/walk 3 to 4 miles every other day. I also do situps and push ups on those days. On the days in between i try to hope on my bike. Just try to stay active. Its so easy to just be a couch potato.

    • March 18, 2011 at 7:51 pm

      Deb, that is awesome. I should add situps and push ups to my routine. Thanks for the inspiration.
