August 25, 2009

Hey y'all! I am sorry I have not posted in so long. ALOT going on in my household lately! But, I think that is just like for basically everyone in 2009. As far as the shrinking-after months of working out and behaving myself, my body still refuses to budge and give up a single pound. So, I just did another round of doctor visits, and have finally gotten the diagnosis that the extreme anemia has gotten to the point that a partial hysterectomy is in order. This will alleviate the blood loss, get my iron levels back up, get more oxygen moving through my body and hopefully get my metabolism fired up again. Supposedly, my body has to work too hard to burn anything with my blood oxygen levels the way they are. We'll see. Crossing my fingers and praying real hard that something works!

Shrinking -April 29


I lost another whopping ONE pound this week!

Whoooo Hoooooo!

So, here is my picture for this week. I apologize about not posting one last week-that was the day that I got the referral to the cancer center and had a meltdown. I am much, much better now and I thank you all so much for the encouraging words and prayers. Y'all are just AWESOME!

April 28th Projects











These are a few projects I made with a new paper/stickease set from CTMH called "Bella". I love the colors in this collection. I made a notecard box filled with very simple all occasion notecards and some "2-4-6-8" treat bags. I used the stickease on one of them and stamped images on the other. I also had to make another card with my "Life's a Beach" cartridge. This is for a boy's birthday. TFL!

Artwork for April 16th.







Here are two projects I worked on this week. The first is a treat box I made with my Wildcard cartridge and Life's a Beach cartridge. I think it is so cute! The next is a altered chipboard cube from Close to My Heart. I also used Close to My Heart's Unforgettable papers, rub ons, and die-cut stickers. I am going to give it to my mom for Mother's Day. This week I also got my CTMH website up, and you can visit it at http://www.kristalovestostamp.myctmh.com/ . I did not set it up for customers to online shop there because I cannot give you a discount that way. If you would like a catalog or to place an order, email me at moodybluez116@aol.com for a 10% off discount on every order!



Shrinking-April 16th

Ok, I only lost one pound this week. Given that this past week was Easter and I ate several chocolate eggs, one chocolate bunny and a fairly nice sized piece of Key Lime pie, I can't complain. I have started incoporating the P90X workout program into my routine every other day along with the treadmill, so even though I only lost one pound, this morning I could fit into a pair of capris that two weeks ago I couldn't. I still have a long way to go, and will have to cut back on the chocolate.

April 9th Projects











I got my shipment in from CTMH (my first order I have placed in over a year) and I am having such a great time playing with all of my new stuff! These cards and the purse are done with the Unforgettable papers and coordinating stamp sets from CTMH. I used the Cricut to cut out the purse. I love it when I can combine my favorite crafting tools. I have a hard time coming up with great card ideas on my own, so I got my inspiration from the Originals book. Just LOVE that book! The cards and purse are part of a gift set that I am working on. TFL! Have a great weekend!
