Memorial Weekend

On Memorial weekend my daughter & I went to go visit Grammie. While they worked in the garden I practiced using my camera some more. Here are photos of flowers and birds at my moms house. On the photos of the flowers I was trying to keep the flowers in focus while blurring the background. I managed to do it that time but I am not sure if I could do it again. I am hoping to get to practice more this summer. Flowers are great because for the most part they stand still-unless there is a strong breeze.

Twilight RAK

Here is the cutest traveling rak I have ever received! If you are a Twilight fan you will definitely think this is the cutest. Shari Dudek made the card and it has been to Micigan, Florida twice, and South Dekota, and I am sending it off. Of course in one of those moments do you think I can remember what state I am sending it too on Tuesday????

Of course this card says Team Edward-which I just knew Bella and Edward would have to be together because they were soul mates; but at times my heart just ached for Jacob. Glad in the end he found someone too and he and Bella did end up family.

Coming Soon...

I made some more projects including the cutest little scrapbook page that I think will be just darling for a baby or a little girl. It is going to take me a little while to get some photos done. I need to clean up first. (it is always such fun having a preschooler help you when you want to craft!) And in the mean time maybe I can refresh my memory on how to "straighten" a photograph once it is cropped. I took an online course thru adult ed last year. Now to find that notebook!

June Birthdays

There are lots of June birthdays so here are the cards I made. I think I like the orange background better...

Here is a quick card I made for Mother's Day for my DH's grandmother. The designer paper was from Target. I always have such a hard time matching patterned paper. I used the small oval punch to make the flower.

Crazy Cat

Here is our foolish kitten that was just a little tiny baby last time I showed a picture of her. She is now 10 months old. Here she is laying across the rungs of the bar stool-front legs over one side, hind legs hanging over the other side & her big belly hanging down in the middle....

More Updating

Ok once upon a time I had it so my name was at the end of every post. Do you think that I can get the stupid HTML to work? Not on your life. A simple cut & paste process has taken me all night. My hand has gone numb from being on the computer so long!

More Weight Gone!

I finally started loosing again-I had a stall out for awhile. But I lost a total of 50lbs since I joined Curves 3 years ago. 28 of that has been since I joined Weight Watchers last October. I think I have another 10-15 lbs to go. I'm not really sure what I want my weight to be. I want to be a certain size. And the rate I have been going lately my goals are very small at a time. This weeks goals are two more pounds.
