Re-Invention --- of Moi!

Every so often, when I least expect it, I change.  I don't always see it coming, sometimes it is a surprise and sometimes it is like a big weight has been lifted off me.

Right now the biggest change is that I have quit wearing most makeup.  I never wore a lot but as I have aged I have worn more trying to regain my youth.  Ok, you can quit laughing now, it wasn't THAT funny.  It is something that has been coming on gradually.  I have been omitting steps a little more at a time until here I am -- a little eye makeup and  a little lip balm -- bam! I am done.  I love it.  With that said, the skincare routine has been upped which has made such a difference.  I am very comfortable with my decision.

I have also morphed into wearing a formula wardrobe.  I read a blog written by a woman who does this and it makes sense.  Of course, she is tiny and attractive (and has also quit wearing makeup -- yes, her blog influenced me) but her approach is very do-able even if you aren't tiny and attractive.  So, my colors are black, white, gray and navy.  Throw in some splashes of turquoise and red (I love to carry a red handbag) and I am good.  But what makes it different for me right now is I am looking for thin t-shirts.  This is new for me.  I normally wouldn't wear something like that but I have a Girl Scout jersey that is thin and it feels so good so I thought......yeah, a new me!

That isn't all that has changed.  I am finally taking time, again, to do some of the things I like to do -- like card making!  I finally got all my supplies organized and I sat down to make my oldest granddaughter a birthday card.  She has now reached double digits and likes to dance so this is what I came up with.

So, what do you think?  I have another done that I will post at a later date.
