Thanks for stopping by. 

Arty Slides "Christmas Theme"...

I'm in this swap called "Arty Slides" on IUOMA group.  I love creating with these tiny works of art.  Here go two sets of two that I have rec'd so far....
These are from Judy...I love the painted 3d wood tree and the tiny wood stars.  These are so festive.

 These were made by Claudia (from Argentina) Her first one is an origami Star Tree, if you unfold the center pieces, you will see a star unfold, The tree stands up right as well like a pop up.  The other slide she has a Santa Wish list which unfolds and Wishes are wrote on each little section of the letter.  I love this and how different.  Thank you both.

Fun Mail Arrived today in the Mail!!

I rec'd two fun cards in the mail today.  They are from my RST friends (private club) the first one is from Debbie L... Love this Debbie so cute, and thanks.  The second one is to remain anonymous cause she write and critiques for all the crafty magazines out there and goes to the Cha shows and works for various companies there too, she makes cards and items for magazines to photograph, this is why her cards that are sent to her -rst- friends can't publish them.  But I have posted a "Mail Art" envy that she is so good at...   Thanks for looking.  Leave a comment if you feel like it.

Working on my Mail Art Swap:Fall Theme.  This is what I created for my first set of envies:

And this is what I'll be sending them in:
I used my metallic rub-on the envy and also used my embossing folder to get the fall leaves pattern. The postage stamp is made out of a napkin and stamped canceled marks.  I used my Eclips machine to cut out the leaves.  Yes, the Eclips has a place for cartridges, but also you can "Print To Cut" and also use SVG files.  Love this machine and the intricate cuts it creates each and every first time.  I have the best of both worlds Print 2 Cut/Cartridges and Cuts SVG files.  Love It!

I place the envy inside a brayed glassine (sp?) bag that I also ran through the embossing folder on my Vagabon machine.  Love that machine as well. 
Thanks for stopping by.  Leave a comment if you like.  I'm working on my second set of envies tomorrow, but first have to clean house...lol  ugh.

My "Arty Slides"   "Sliding into Sept"...

Hi Everyone,
Here goes my Arty Slides I made for the swap... "Sliding Into Sept"  What it means to me...  

The first one, I used my Color wash paints from Creative Mode (stamping vendor no longer) I used the copper and then used the Color wash metallic (white) on top.  Stamped leave images all around the front of the slide.   Sept. means to me... leaves changing and the colors and all that beauty.  The second slide is Halloween Theme (another thought of Autumn)  I used my Sizzix Eclips machine, and made the Trick or Treat in a size 1 inch to fit inside the slide window.  I love the little candy corn and also the spider that is hanging from the "K"... lol   

The back of the slides... The first one is the dusk sun and the leaves on the trees.  And the then the second one the spider on the back.  I love this time of year and enjoy the colors and beauty of it all.
Thanks for looking and you each will receive them soon.

The Weight Loss... Yippie Skippie

Everyone was asking me about my weight loss.  I had my Gastric Bypass done in January 10,2013 and had my before picture taken at the doctor's office....

Now here is a picture of me now..8 months after...
I now weight is 152 lbs.  The jeans I have on are a size 16 and I can pull them down without unbuttoning the button and not even pull down the zipper.  I know TMI...lol  I can even get into a smaller size jean.  My shirt is a large, I was never able to get into that size 8 months ago, let alone even look at a small shirt...lol 

I feel so good and have so mucccccccccccchhhhhhhhh  Energy. It was so much fun to go do a little shopping, I needed some new clothes, my fat clothes were just hanging on me and looked terrible.  When I was trying on clothes, it was funny... I headed for the big girl fat clothes and not even thinking to head over to the skinny smaller size clothes...lol  hubby laughed his ass off. 

This week, I'm going to go and shop for a dress, hubby's nephew is getting married... It's been about as long as I've been married (30 yrs) since I've bought a new dress or even tried on one... this will be a fun experience.  Hubby's nephew fiancee said to me "That's what makes shopping fun, when your skinny, to be able to try on so many fun clothes and feel good about it".  I am planning on going into Victoria Secrets... I'm going to see how it feels to wear and try on some really Lacey frilly things...lol
It's not even been a year yet, and I'm down to my goal.  Maybe I can even get down to 145 lbs by the end of the year. 
Thank you all for the encouragement and sharing this journey with me ... And Thanks to my hubby and sons for their support and much encouragement too.  I love you all.
