Day 4

Wednesday is finally over....only 2 more days till the weekend. and I get to go shopping this weekend. I am so excited about this gift basket thing I have planned, I just hope it works. I need to make some money and I think it will be awesome. I have a list of things I want to try but there are so many things to look for. baskets, buckets and such and then I am being invited to a baby shower for a friend and will give me a chance to make a diaper cake for her. I may make one this weekend just to try it out. Their theme is John Deere so it will be alot of fun to try to find baby toys that are that theme.

Day 3

We missed walking this morning. I wasn't feeling good and still didn't have any gloves. Way too cold without gloves. But then Robin slept right through it...So I guess we will try for tomorrow morning. I did get a pair of gloves so I am set to go. Talked to a friend at work today about my gift basket idea. She was very supportive. I think this will be something I can do. and possibly make a little money on them. She even said I could put some in the Nail salon that she works in. That will be very awesome. Now I just have to get the stuff together. I saw some things on you tube today that were just so cool I can't wait to try them I just need to get to the springs to get the stuff. Work was tough today. we were so busy and I didn't get as caught up as I thought I would. So I guess that is why there is tomorrows................

Day number 2!

Ok so far so good. Looking like this year is going to be a great least so far. I got a call last night from Robin and yes we had our first walk of the new year. We met at 6 am and walked for about 15 minutes. didn't go very far because it was very COLD! I see when i got home it was only 19 degrees... I do need to find some gloves and a hat. my fingers were froze by the time we got back to the school. But I did do it and I plan to do it again in the morning. I weighed myself this morning and oddly enough since August and September when I had all my teeth pulled and by the way still waiting for the bottom partial to show up . I haven't been able to eat alot of the things good for you and have eaten some of the worst things possible but ....but ..... I have only gained 6 pounds since then. Monday Jan. 2 I weighed in at 256.6 lbs. more to come later.

Here it is January 1st 2012!!!!! I have been away for a very long time. But one of my resolutions is to keep up with my blog and work weekly on my website. In June of 2010, Marie and I decided to open our dream store and it did happen..only problem was Marie decided after we got open to take off for Florida. So it has been a year and a half now and I am still there. I did meet a woman a while back that helped me set up a website. I just never seem to have the time to update it but I am going to make a real effort to get back to working on it and posting things on there. I want to go to as many craft shows this year as I can manage. I want to get the store out there and hopefully get it to grow some. I want to do more of the kids kraft time. It went really well when we did do it and it was fun. Would really like to see it grow some. Well, anyway. I am back and going forward. Happy New Year and I will be back tomorrow. come see me sometime....

Quick challenge

This card I made for the challenge on MY PINK STAMPER. I rearranged my craft room this weekend and got everything to the point where it is accessable. I love it. And I do plan to use some (alot) of my paper and embellishments. I am not going to buy anything new for a long time..Rearranging can really open your eyes.

This one I made with the same sheets of paper..Amazing how many cards you can get from 2 sheets of paper.

New Year's Resolutions!

1. To use up alot of my scrapbooking and card making supplies.
2. To do more scrapbooking
3. To make more cards (and send them)
4. To lose the last 30..38 lbs I need to lose.
5. To walk at least 3 days a week (with Robin).
I guess that's enough for now. Oh wait..6. To take more pictures. (thanks again Becca for the new camera. I love it!!!)

(As long as they are posted, I might make it a point to make them work.)
