Soooo behind!

I realize that I am SOOOO behind! I was laid off for two weeks with no access to a computer unless I went to town! Thank God I go back on Monday! WOOHOO!

I do have some pictures to share but will need to save them to a flash drive to post. I never think about bringing the thing with me when I come in.

I will also be posting the June newsletter next week so come back and check it out!

We made the cutest necklace using the Hodge Podge hardware set and I can't wait to share it with you!

Also been going to FitZone for Women...lost 5 pounds and several inches in the month I have been going. When I went to Dr's appt a couple of weeks ago I had lost 9 pounds in two months. The one thing I am doing different is watching WHAT I eat and WHEN I eat. Keeping an online food journal on SparkPeople has also kept me accountable for what I am eating...trying to keep between 1300-1600 calories a day with 75-100 grams of protein!

WaterColor Stamp Camp March 2009

Here is a peek of the projects we did in March at Stamp Camp. :o) Enjoy!

The month started off as "Simply Scrappin' kit" but as I worked with my kit of choice for the month I really struggled with putting together cards that I liked so the last minute I changed my mind. I designed and prepped for this stamp camp in less than three hours. Must have been a God thing! :o

We used watercolor paper on all the cards with watercolor crayons and either blender pens or aqua painters. I love the way they turned out!

The weekly calendar was a CASE. We had went to a women's retreat at a near by church and one of the sessions to choose from was SU! demo...of course, I am going to that! :) She demoed the calendar using an 8 1/2 x 11 frame.

I will post directions etc later. Come back soon! I will also post last month's stamp camp - Fifth Avenue Floral! :)

Been a LONG time!

Due to the economical downturn in our home, we let our internet go as a cost save. Hopefully things will be up and going again quickly now that James is back to work! Yoohoo! It's been four months since he was laid off and he went back to work yesterday.

I will have to take some pics of the current things we have worked on, save to a jump drive and update my site during lunch! :o)

What's happening in our little corner of the world?

My mom, son and I all joined a 12 week weight loss challenge. We are starting week four now. Last week for me was a BAD week; birthday, sick for two days, out to eat ALL day Sunday and Mother-Daughter banquet...needless to say the scale showed it. However, I brushed myself off and back on track today!

I joined FitZone. I need to get this weight off and since I had to start ALL over with teh six month weight loss management thing again I decided I am NOT going to just sit still and not do anything. Granted, it's going to tighten the budget but that just means that I pack my lunch and eat breakfast at home (which is better for you anyway!).

James has two books published and is about 2/3 of the way thru book three in the series. Not selling as he wished it did but they told him from the beginning that it will take a while. He also became a certified personal trainer during his lay-off.

My daughter and her three children are moving to Louisiana next Saturday! I'm gonna cry and pout! Imagine them 1000 miles away. WWAAAHHHH!
