Wrapped up...

I finished up a swap tonight. I angeled a few spots in a 4x6 tag recipe swap. The theme was summer drinks. I did "Watermelon Sparklers" for one spot.

My second spot was "Coffee Whirls" and I will post them tomorrow!

Can't get enought!

I was recently approached about making a custom order of my cupcake charms. The gal is hosting a party and wanted to use them are wine glass charms. She picked her colors, and I like the combinations.

Since I was already making them, I made 2 extra sets, and I'm gonna throw them up on My Etsy. I thought it was a great idea for the lil cupcakey goodness!

you guessed it...

Yup, I'm in "another swap", oh how I love them! This is a July 4th tag and charm swap on 2 peas of course! I've finished my tags and working to wrap up my charms. Hopefully I'll have them posted in a few days too...since they are due June 12

Something Fun

SO, my friends and I in me "Creative Outlet" scrapping group are doing our own "Biggest Loser" this summer. More fun and encouragement than competition...but we are all in for $20.00 each and the winner will get $200.00 in scrapbooking supplies.

I'm doing Weigh Watchers...It works and I know it...I find it a livable plan to follow.
So one of the things I do is write down what I eat. The other day on 2peas, I ran into a gal (on a message board...funny) who is doing a food & recipe journal also and was looking for a fun way to decorate the cover. Well, I have KittyCow on 2peas to thank...she found this cute pattern and was KIND enough to share it with me! I made it tonight and love it!!!

Here are a couple of my favorites...

guard show from Friday

CHS winter guard

Arms and legs everywhere

That's exactly what my desk area looked like for a few days...arms here, a leg there, a torso or two. I've been working to complete my Vintage inchie dolls for a swap. Finished today, mailing tomorrow. We each signed up for a month, and I picked May. Can't wait to see what everyone came up with.

I went Friday and cut my hair off...been dying to go, but just never remember to make an appointment. I haven't really learned how to style it yet....I'm not so good at that type thing. Guess that is why my hair has been long and straight for most my life.

Just ready for some change ...

MoRe DoTeE...

Working on my second Dotee Theme group now...Under the Sea.
I'm not done with the details here either...but do have some progress!

Yesterday I went to Day 2 of Water Aerobics...It went well but this morning I can definitely tell I've been doing something back is a bit sore. I've slept like a rock the past 2 nights (an added lil bonus I guess) and I'm loving not waking up 10times a night!

Never be afraid

I tried something new...I joined a water aerobics class and went with a friend

for the 1st time today! It was a REALLY good time! I even almost forgot I was in a swimsuit.

As always I'm sure you ALL want to see pictures, I was hesitant at first...but ok...I'll be a good sport on this picture, don't ask again!

Something NEW

I recently signed up for a new type of swap, they are called Dotee dolls (named after the gal Dot who created them). Little mini dolls, with hand stitched faces, lots of details, beads, charms, etc... fun stuff!

The swap I signed up for 3 different themes: In the forest, Under the Sea and Cupcake!

I started working on the Forest ones this morning, they are lil Mushrooms. I'm not done with them ...I've got a few more details to add, but here they are.

National Scrapbook Day

Wow! What a whirlwind weekend! I baked like wild woman from Wednesday to Friday in preparation for our NSD crop. 6 dozen cupcakes (Banana Split flavored, Pink Lemonade flavored, white) 3 dozen cupcake pops...and not ONE single picture! I''m sure someone else at the crop took pictures of the table, but I woke Friday morning with an awful headache and just wasn't on my "A" game with some other family distractions also.

I cropped Friday from 12 to 6pm, came home for a bit to nap and get rid of my headache then returned to crop from 9 till 4am. I returned again Saturday morning at 10 and stayed another 6hours. It was a really productive weekend, and I got to visit with friends and make a few new ones also!

I'll leave ya with a picture of my scrappin pal Vicki. She only got to come scrap Friday night. The poor thing was scheduled to leave for vacation Sunday morning to Disney. I'm sure she was very sad to leave {snort}! At least she will return with even more photos for memory making in scrapbooks!
