Easter Sign

This has been my project this weekend.  I felt the need to retreat to the scrap room as much as possible this weekend.  The hubby is wonderful about allowing me the time.  The Eggs are from the Cricut Cartridge A Child's Year.  I love that cartridge.  I embossed a few of the eggs using my sizzix system with cuttlebug embossing folders.  I blinged them with some stickles and embelished away.  I still need to weave in some raffia to hang them.  I plan to hang them from the fireplace.  I'll post a picture when they're complete.

Couch to 5K

So today I started the couch to 5K program.  It's a 9 week program to get us couch potatoes up and and healthy.  I don't think I consider myself a couch potato as much as a craft potato.  I really just don't move much when I'm crafting: just from the computer to the Cricut to the Zutter back to the computer:-)  Anywho, the goal is to be able to run a 5K at the end of 9 weeks in under 30 minutes.  It sound like a lot to us non athletic people, but when I was in the Army at my max I was running a 6 minute mile and running 4 miles a couple times a week.  Then I had a baby, and some health issues, and got out of the Army after my deployment, and got lazy.  I know I can get back there, but man tonight was hard.  You start by walking 5 minutes, then you run for 60 second and walk for 90 seconds and continue this for 20 minutes.  It took me the entire 30 minutes to do 2 miles.  I took my dog Jessie with me because I decided she needed to quit being a couch potato too.  After mile one she was wondering why we weren't heading back to the house.  At mile 1.5 I was dragging her with me.  Yep, she's as out of shape as me.  Now I feel like a bad dog owner too.  Well, this is a three times a week workout, so I'll be back at it on Tuesday night, weather permitting.  Wish me luck!

Pink Soccer Album

I made this soccer album out of recycled cereal boxes.  Never hurts to go green.  It seems like I can't throw anything away now.  I have the "I can do something with that," attitude.  TFL!

Pound for Pound

I am a huge fan of the Biggest Loser.  Well, today I signed up for the pound for pound challenge.  I've pledged 20 pounds of weight loss.  Wow!  I can use all the support I can get so I'll try to keep this blog updated with my (hopeful) success on this:-)  I'll also keep adding crafts.  I've made several, but haven't gotten around to taking any pictures.  I do encourage anyone who is able to check out the pound for pound challenge and participate if you are able.  Even if you do not need to lose weight there are several other ways to particpate.  Every little bit helps feed those in need!  Thanks for your support!

Birthday Card

I made this card for my son's friend's birthday.  I used the A Child's Year cart.  I love this image and was excited to get the chance to make a card for a little girl:-)
