That's how I've been feeling lately. A bit of everything going on here.

I am down only two pounds, but should I be surprised!? I definately haven't been avoiding certain foods (like dessert!). Naughty me! But, I am happy I haven't gained any! Whew! I think I'll be going back on the herb suplements (still have a bunch leftover), or at least the chromium. I find this really helps with my cravings and blood sugar levels. It's just a PITA to take them 30-60 minutes before meals! LOL!

DD is getting better at handling the camera and managed to take a couple of decent shots of me. LOL!

We've been crazy busy here, so no time to update my blogs as much as I'd like. Still trying to get my photo slideshows up & running on my other blog.

Been Busy...

Altered Notebook & Memory Box:

Altered Frames:

Altered Albums (matchbook & paper bag)

Fridge Magnets:

Greeting Cards:

Tonight is the adjudication for the Farmer's Market, so I have been busy making samples of things I will be selling. I'm a little nervous, but they won't actually judge my work, just give me a yay or nay. I am in it with a friend who I am guilty of getting her addicted to this hobby! LOL! Here are some of my samples I made. I am working on a website so people can view my items and place custom orders. The web address is but I don't have it up and running yet. Need to get myself a website design program. (Anyone...? LOL)
Wish me luck!

Busy Times!

It feels like it's never a quiet moment here! The only time I get to have time to myself is in the evenings and I end up staying up wayyyyy too late!

Myself and a friend are going to be selling at the Farmer's Market downtown on Fridays! We are going for our adjudication next Tuesday. We need to provide samples of the items we'll be selling, so I need to get busy!!

We're also trying to organize and prepare for my SIL's wedding coming up July 1st. We'll be hosting the open house the next day and our front/side yard has been all torn up - we're in the middle of re-landscaping!! Plus the backyard needs to have more beds dug up and flowers and shrubs planted.

I discovered Facebook and it really is quite fun! I found a few friends from Jr. High I haven't seen in years!!

So since it was my DD's birthday last weekend, that called for cake. Well we have quite a bit left that we froze. So it's hard not to have cake every night!! And I am procrastinating on starting my exercise! Ugh! I just don't have the energy it takes most days! Anyway, tomorrow is a new day...if I could only get to bed early!!


Had a Princess Party...

My daughter turned three on Sunday and we threw her a huge Princess Party! It was so much fun! 15 kids + adults!

Unfortunately, I lost my camera for most of the day and didn't get any pictures! I know!!! A scrapbooker *lost* her camera on one of the most special days of her daughter's life! There were a few people taking pictures and I've asked for them to share, I am so anxious to see them!!

We had crafts, food, cake, gifts, a bouncy castle set up in the backyard, a dragon pinata & goody bags fit for the little Princesses & Knights! It was so much fun! I may have overdone it, but she only turns three once! LOL!

I'll share the pictures I have from before and after the party! (insert eyeroll here!)

The cake sitting on my Mum's knee in the van! LOL! DD getting her face painted & opening her last gift.

TFL! :o)
