I'm here, I'm here, Jo!

That title has little to do with this post except to state that I have not fallen off the face of the earth or vanished into thin air. :)

I did this layout way back in 2006 for the Scrap 52 Challenge. At the time this slightly avant garde (for me anyway) layout was a representation of my head exploding with creative ideas. In those days I did at least 2 layouts a week. Phew!

Today this layout could represent my head exploding with all the information exploding from my brain and keeping me awake at night and in the early hours of the morning writing blog posts and emails and thinking about what to do and how to do it.

What has caused this sudden disruption to the unexciting, but highly sleep-conducive, brain waves I had before Saturday 25 November, 2012?

I'll tell you.

I went to the the Low Carb Nutrition Seminar presented by Low Carb Australia and Nourishing Australia. I went because my friend wanted someone to go with her and I have an interest in my health and my family’s health. I did, however, have a negative view (from ignorance rather than knowledge) of the Paleo Diet and thought I might be somewhat bored by the day.

How wrong was I?!?! And that is why my brain is busting!

I want to keep a record of my thoughts, findings, health and anything else related and I've decided to do that in a blog - Woo Woo To Wow Wow*.

"How did you come up with a name like that?" you may well ask. 

Again, I'll tell you. :)

One of the speakers at the Seminar, Sarah Wilson, used the term "woo woo" to describe how people might think about all this stuff about low carbs and high fat and thyroid and heart disease and so on. I like "woo woo" so I am going to take "woo woo" and show how "wow wow" will be the results. :)

If you want to read about my family's and my journey from healthlessness to healthfulness then you can follow Woo Woo To Wow Wow. If not, you can just ignore this post and I will return to regular (in the sense of normal) posts on this blog from now on.

*I haven't even written a post yet (except in my head in the middle of the night) but you'll know where to find it when I do!

After Ruark Lewis and other things

I have been using my Walls Notebook (which I first saw on Lori Vliegen's blog) for quite some time now. I mostly use it for taking notes at church but every so often I do a little rendition to highlight my notes so I thought I'd give you a little peek at what I've done in it so far

I'll start with what I did the other day...
Susannah and I headed down to the Hazelhurst Regional Gallery & Arts Centre where I was introduced to (and instantly inspired by) the work of Ruark Lewis.

Here's 1 Corinthians 12:13 Ruark Lewis style.

1 Corinthians 12:13

And here are the other (word escapes me)...

1 Thessalonians 5:13

Matthew 18:15-35

Also Matthew 18:15-35

Not sure where this was from - probably the Matthew reference.

John 12:1-16

1 Corinthians 12:1-11

Zephaniah 1:7 - A little bit Ruark Lewis style

Zephaniah 3:17
