Hello Everyone,

It has been a long long time since I have posted here. I've still been making a few cards, just not as many as I used too, and I have given a few of them away without taking pictures....*slaps hand*...

Anyways, I want to talk to you about this blog. I'm thinking about taking a new approach to my blogging, and hope you will stay around to visit and support me. Ya see....Over the last year or two I have had a couple of health scares. Don't worry....everything is OK - I've just had to add a couple of medications to my morning line up, but it makes me think...is this really what I want for the rest of my life? And if I don't do something now, what's going to happen in the future? When I moved to Estevan, I gained almost 100 lbs! It's time to do something - the time is now!!!

Not only does this weight take away any chance of me ever having a baby (which is another story...for another time), it also endangers my future health.


I took a big step and joined Weight Watchers! Now I am only down 12 pounds so far, but it's a start.

I want my blog to be a place I can communicate. I will still post cards - but I am also going to post about my weight loss struggle and achievements.

I think that by writing it down for the world to see, might keep me more accountable for my actions, and hopefully I can understand where I went wrong last time, and not make those same mistakes.

If some of you want to leave my blog and stop following me now - I totally understand - it's not exactly what you signed up for eh??

I hope some of you will stick around and let me know how I'm doing. You can also give me a kick in the butt when I need it. Just be gentle...

As an added bonus, my hubby is trying to lose weight too. (he's not doing so well yet unfortunately, but it will come....he pretty much has no choice, I'm not cooking fatty foods anymore!!)

In the next few days I will get a starting picture so you can see what I look like now, and I will try to take pictures as I go along.

It was really hard for me to share this with you. I have this damn little voice in my head that keeps saying....what if you can't do it, what if you fall off, everyone will know now...
You know what though??? I have to try....that's all I can say right now.

So, wish me luck. I have a weigh in tomorrow!!!

Prayer request...

Hi Guys....

I know I've been totally neglecting my blog, and I apologize, but I have a huge favor to ask of all of you.

My wonderful sister and her common law husband just had a baby on Monday, her baby is experiencing some health problems and is getting seen by a specialist tomorrow.

I was lucky enough to see her yesterday before they rushed her to another hospital, and she is such a little angel.

Please join me in praying for baby Elisabeth. She can use all the well wishes that she can get!!

Hugs to all of you! And thank you so much!!

The last of my Christmas cards!

Hello Friends!!

Here are the last of my Christmas cards that I made this year! I know, pretty bad, eh....it's almost the end of January.
I bought these images online from All That Scraps. I love digital images! I love that when I order them....I get them just about instantly!! What a deal!!

I hope all of you are having as wonderful weather as we are having here in Sask. By 10 am this morning it was melting outside. Usually snow doesn't start melting until March!!
Well, I am off to bed. I was working on scrapbooking tonight, so hopefully I can get permission to post those pictures for you soon!!

Christmas cards...never posted

My grandma loves to send out homemade cards. Other years she has phoned my Mom and asked her to send some cards, so she can give them out to her friends and family.
Mom and I decided to beat Grandma to the punch this year, so when we went to see her in October, we took some cards and gave them to her for her birthday.
I took some quick pictures before I gave them to her. The lighting isn't very good, but I wanted to share my cards with you!

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Years!!
And I wish everyone of you the best in 2010!!
