My return to camp

I finished my first 2017 Slipper Camp Workout: 
"Printing out at least three great photos from 2017 and putting them in prominent places." 




In February 2016 I attended what we call "Art Camp" again.
This photo is from a walk with my dearest friends Lynn & Jill.
I digitally created a fun photo keepsake for them in Oct. 2016.
Now the photo is on the magnet board above my monitor. 
This Polaroid of Owen was already up. (Bonus for me--smile.) Interesting to note: Owen goes directly to that photo and makes a comment every time he comes in our house.

Owen is my grandson by way of my God-daughter Brittany. 









October 2016-- weekend in a cabin with my friend Nanette.
We hadn't seen each other in over 7 years.
Thanks to Slipper Camp exercise one I see this photo every day.
My dresser top looks like inspiration for another exercise, right?










I had my first birthday party in several years in 2016. The photo now happily resides on our fridge door.

Returning to Slipper Camp

Happy new year and welcome back campers!

Slipper camp is designed to be a kinder, gentler version of boot camp. We explore stretching our limits on the physical, mental, and spiritual levels with mini-workouts throughout 2017. We will repeat some of our exercises from our last camp sessions in 2014 along with adding plenty of new ones.





  Exercise 1: Gratitude for the dances

Introduction: Everyone over the age of two can tell you something they remember. Sadly, when asked, adults will often recall or share their worst memories.

I have seen so many posts on Facebook that say "2016 was a tough year." 

Did nothing make you smile in 2016? Nothing? 




Workout: Find three (or more) "smile worthy" photos on your phone and PRINT them. Put those photos in very visible places. Tape to fridge, staple inside your planner, pin to a bulletin board--you get the idea. Be grateful for the dances.

Tips: 
1. Most stores offer an app that will allow you to print photos directly from your phone. 
Here's one from Walgreens: http://photo.walgreens.com/walgreens/storepage/storePageId=Mobile 
2. Any photos you transfer to your computer can be printed in several ways:

-- Send them to a store (drugstores to discount stores) or have them mailed to you
-- Send them to the same type store and pick them up the same or next day
-- Move photos to a USB drive and take it into a store
-- Use an online photo printing service, for example: www.snapfish.com (there are a ton of these)
3. You can print directly from Facebook with many online services now
4. If you own a printer: (black and white is fine)
--Print directly from a smart phone and wireless printer
--Print from your PC with these easy steps

    -left click photo
    -click open in new window
    -enter control P on new window


This is easy. You know you'll love it.
