Well, I can't believe how fast time goes. I feel horrible when I do not have time to blog. I am finally able to celebrate in that I am done with my CHA-S designs, now granted- not 100% but enough that I feel a HUGE sense of relief. I am so excited about EVERYTHING. I spent the past few days finalizing some paper designs, and I was so busy that I forgot to eat. (If you know me, I love food and this NEVER happens)
It was 2:00am on Tues. and I thought I was going to faint. However, when I am in the "creative ZONE", I can't stop.
Since I can't say yet, WHAT I am releasing, I will say that I am trying to make scrap booking easy for all of us. With Journal- it or Damask...I could use this line for ANYTHING. So my vision is to keep creating my lines with that in mind. I will be going to CHA Summer in Chicago in July.
The house is moving along. It's pretty slow. I gave my kitchen table away to a friend of mine in Utah, that I met through scrap booking. I love that she could use my table, since I no longer have a formal dining room.
I watched American Idol and The Biggest Loser last night. Did anyone else? David A. did great. I was wondering how he would sing a Mariah Carey song. I watched Biggest Loser, because I LOVE the final show. I rarely watch it, but I like this one- where you see how much they ended up losing. It's very inspiring. How in the world did the winner- Ali- lose 112 lbs in 22 weeks? That is insane!!! Honestly, I can't imagine how many hours a day you would HAVE to work out. Plus, how much do you think she eats? She won 250 K and is very thin now. I noticed most of the people who lost the weight had extra underarm skin. The body is not meant to lose weight so fast. Anyway, it was great for me to ONCE again think about where I am. I am EXACTLY the same weight. I have maintained. I am not focusing on losing weight, and so I haven't. I WANT too, but there is more important things right now in my life that I focus on. My focus is to MAINTAIN, which I do find really hard some days. I needed a BREAK!!! That's the story. I was tired of the mental process after 19 months. So I took a few steps back about 6 weeks ago.
I decided to take a little hiatus, but maintain what I have done so far. I am happy to say that I have lost 46 lbs.-50 lbs. Depending on the day! However, I do have the feelings coming back that I want to start it up again. I want to realistically lose 20-25 more lbs.
Zach's team won the entire Championship last weekend. The team is full of cute TEN year old boys. I love watching these boys grow and play together. Zach hit one over the fence, and is doing great. He told me this morning, that he things about BASEBALL all day long, and that at night he hopes he DREAMS about baseball. Funny guy!
Big things going on- Taylor is getting ready to graduate next month. (Her gums are still hurting her). Gentry will be 16 on the 22nd. I can't believe it! I wanted to do a big party for her. She informed me, or better yet BEGGED ME- not to do any party. Gent said she hates being the center of attention and it just is awkward for her. She made me PROMISE not to throw her a party. We still will celebrate, but with our family.
This is a darling composition book by Sesil Cratin. I love creating my own books too. How great is the bold red with the Damask collection?
This is a Damask layout by Alex Hobson. She sent this to me, and told me that after her husband saw it- he loved it. I love that! I love that HE got it, and supports her. Her layout was created from a sketch inspiration.
This is a altered project by Cindy Gilchrist. What a creative way to use Journal-it!
This last page, is by Susan Goetter. I am happy to see that she used my line to do her heritage layout.
I must get back to work...I have to clean out my laundry room today. Have a great day!
