I am sitting today enjoying a beautiful view our my window of sunshine on fresh fallen snow. This is the first snow we've had this season and while it was messy yesterday when it was falling, today it is really pretty - especially since I'm viewing it from my warm chair! I am so happy to have a blog post for you again. Last week was quite busy. Between working longer hours and basketball games there was no time for any crafting. My little craft table sat unused for 6 days straight! I was happy to get back there yesterday and make these two goodies.
I love these sunflowers inked up in more mustard. I also love my new tag it dies and stamps. It allows me to customize a card for the recipient and add a little accent to the card. This will be for my Mom's 75th birthday coming in February. Bright sunflowers are perfect for her!
Oh and lastly, I added a new resolution late in the month. I hopped on a scale at home to confirm why my clothes were fitting tightly and yup, I had gained about 5 pounds over the holidays so I'm back to weight watchers. It's a great program and I love the leader at my Grafton class. I was eager to go back last week, but am struggling. I always do the first two weeks. Once I get my habits and activity aligned it is easier, but the first few weeks are tough. It requires a lot of planning and I haven't been able to stock the pantry appropriately, get in extra activity, nor cook the healthy meals. Today I'll hit the market on my way home from church and stock up on some veggies and low point snacks. I'll also make some soup which is great for low point lunches.
Today I'll head out with the dogs and let them play in the snow, then hit the couch for our big play-off game. At 3:00 the patriots play the ravens and we will all be so excited if they win and go on the superbowl. Go Pats! Have a great day! Thanks for stopping by.
