Unmounting stamps!

Ugh! I have spent the whole day unmounting my stamps and putting them in CD cases.
First, I had to empty the cases and put the cds in some slim cases I had. Then unmount them and sort them into categories and put them in the CD cases. Some of them need EZ Mount on them but I wil do that later. Now I have to make a sheet with all the stamped images from each case. That is another job for later! I have done enough for today!!! They will be easier to find now and take up much less room! My next project for my scrap room is going to be a holder for my ink pads. I have a pattern and directions for one made with foam board. I got some of that, now to just get it done!
It is so much work trying to organize everything when you have so much stuff. It is never ending, but I am chiseling away at it a little at a time.

went to Muchaels today

I don't have a Michaels here and I get so jealous hearing of all the great deals other people get at theirs. I get to go to one maybe 3 or 4 times a year. Well, today we had to go to Iowa City for a doctors appointment so I HAD to stop at Michaels. I got paid today so I was super excited. I had money and I had coupons I printed out last night!
What a bummer! I couldn't find anything I wanted that I couldn't get at Hobby  Lobby with my discount to make it cheaper!!!! I did get the ribbon loop Martha Stewart punch around the page set on clearance for $14.99 and some ribbon and a few other small things. All together, I spent $25.00!!!! And I forgot to use my coupon!! But I don't think it would have amounted to much because the only things that were regular price were $1.99 items. Oh, well, guess I get to shop at work tomorrow!!!!

It is Tuesday- time to weigh in!!

OK_ I weighed in this morning. 168! I lost 2 pounds and I gotta admit- I have beencheating quite a bit. If I really get serious, maybe I can lose 3 next week- or more! I found out the wedding will be next September so that gives me lots of time but with the holidays, I fully expect to not do too good! (atleast I am honest about it) But, even so, I think 45 pounds in 11 months is very do-able!

Exciting News!!!

I just found out that my son got engaged tonight! I am so excited!! A couple of weeks ago, he bought the ring and brought it over to talk to me about it. Then, last week, he asked for her fathers approval and tonight he asked her!!! sniff, sniff, my baby is growing up!! The part that really excites me is soon there will probably be grandkids!! I already have 6 plus 4 step grandkids but I want some (atleast one) from each one of my six kids!! Now, it is D I E T time. I can't be this fat for my sons wedding!! And of course my husband brought home brownies and pumpkin bars from the Farmers Market tonight!! Well, this is it, I am starting in the morning!! NO more chocolate. My weight today is 170 pounds. I will post my weight every Tuesday and hopefully it will be less every week!! LOL  Wish me luck!!

Wedding frame gift

I almost forgot to post this!! First, it tried etching it on the glass. (the day before the wedding) and I broke the glass while cleaning it so I bought a new frame that night at work at Hobby Lobby (50% off + employee discount! Yay!!) So, that night, I figured I would just cut vinyl letters and stick them on the matting. Can't mess that up right? Well, I managed to. I spelled her name wrong!!!! There is no e in it! Duh!! So, we didn't leave the gift at the reception. I had to redo it. I didn't take pictures of that one tho. I really hope they use it. Sometimes I think it would be sooo much easier to buy a gift! But not as fun!

and here is a picture of the card I made them (of course I wrote her name wrong on the envelope!!)

I think that is all for today. I am sure I will have more in a couple of days. I am starting to work on my Christmas tags and cards

It has been awhile!! Halloween door hanger

I have been so busy, I haven't had time to post anything. Today was my day off and I made this for my daughter. A few years ago, my granddaughters and I made a Halloween wreath for her but when their basement got ert, it was ruined. Mary at Cardztv made this adorable door hanger today so it inspired me to make this for my daughter. Marys is much better, tho!! You can see it here
