So, today he went with me to a meeting in our area and I signed up. I am ready. I know I need to do this for my physical and mental health. But, oddly, I was depressed all day! I read and slept and crafted and moped around. But, I didn't go over my points and I am having the last of my water right now! I can do this! I should set a New Year's Resolution - but backwards! Set a goal of where I plan to be by New Year's Day! That is a little over 4 months. Hmmm....I'll pray about that.
What is everyone's weakness? I almost have to fast from sugar when I start a diet or I just want to cram in the sweet things. I also LOVE pizza. We are a pizza eatin' family...that's for sure!
So, wish me luck and ask how it is going every now and then. I could use your support. My first goal is 10% off and when I make that I'll be at pre-baby weight (I had lost 50 right before I got pregnant but have put some back on).
But, I did make cards too yesterday and today and here they are. This couldn't all be about me, me, me. Well I guess it can, it is my blog after all! :)
The green wild wasabi card is with the "you make me happy" set that didn't make the 2007 winter catalog. That didn't make me happy! And the sunflowers are from "Give Thanks", the same set the pumpkin was from in the previous post. I masked the flowers because it is just a single stem. I used the cropodile for the eyelets. I love that thing! I love eyelets but never set them because I hated the pounding, this is a great tool. I watercolored the sunflowers with a watercolor brush and watercolor paper. The paper is new for me, I usually just use regular paper but I really liked the difference. The ribbon charm was from big lots and says "inspiration". I chose it because I am a Kansas girl originally and love sunflowers. The green ribbon is from Doodlidoo. It perfectly matches the always artichoke paper.
Tonight I worked on some cute containers for my co-workers as we head back to school next week. I haven't finished them completely so I'll post later.
So, I'll see you later. Pray for those affected by Hurricane Dean and we'll keep an eye out for him here in Houston.
Love inked in Stazon......Amy
