My Crafty Side

When I first started this blog it was to be for my hobby, Scrapbooking, Card Making, Photography, and to write about my life, etc. etc. Since I started this blog I started sharing my photography. I love taking pictures of anything and everything. I have had a passion for photography all of my life but got more into it five or six years ago. I love playing with my three Flip Camcorders too! (yes, I really do have three-I know it's crazy) But, with three dogs I love having the camcorders and cameras ready to go so that I can capture every move my dogs make!!! LOL!

Back to crafting: I have a room dedicated to my hobby! A room full of brand new crafting materials: Stickers, ribbons, ink pads, rubber stamps, and tons of things to alter, and tons of embellishments and paints, etc. etc. It is like walking into a Michaels or Hobby Lobby, I have that much invested. Crazy---yes!!! I have soooo many unfinished projects. I keep telling myself I will get back into crafting. So, tonight I had the urge, but first I had to clean up my workroom!! I have been "spring" cleaning or "purging" and shredding papers and getting rid of old magazines and personal papers, receipts, etc. which I have collected over the years!!!

Okay - got sidetracked again! Here is a card I made for my Dear friend, Judy. The two of us have been on a strict diet (my husband, too) and it is a tough diet to follow-thru but we have been doing it and are very happy with our results so far!!!

Thank you for stopping by to read my blog!

Finally, I have the picture ICON back! I do not know what I did to make it disappear! I have been busy SPRING cleaning but still have piles and piles of paper everywhere!!! My downstairs is all cleaned with the exception of the hardwood floors which need to be cleaned, waxed, and buffed! Then my next project will be the upstairs. OMG! That will be a month long job! My house is too big and we have way too much stuff and three dogs to add to the mess (cleaning up and picking up after them) but I love them!!!!

We removed our carpet due to the pets ruining it. We had ceramic tile put down and it came out so pretty. I really like it (and I was opposed to it before). Does any one use any of those sweepers that have steam? I am thinking that would be a good investment for the ceramic tile. I just do not know which one to buy. I only want the BEST! LOL!

I have been on the edge lately. Hubby and I are on a strict diet and have been without alot of the foods and drinks we come to think we could not ever live without! LOL! I have lost 7 and 1/2 pounds and he has lost 18 pounds. I will say this, we are eating healthier and I am exercising again.

I have a busy day ahead of me so enjoy this picture of my new look in my living room and a picture of my doggies. We had to get Brewster, our Lhasa shaved. He had such a beautiful coat of hair but it had soooo many matts. Now, he really looks like a Lhasa!!
