In a creative funk!!

I started making my Christmas cards and something kept stalling me out!! They just never seemed right but kept plodding along anyway. Now I have a bunch of half made cards that I don't even like. Hmmm, finish them or head out to get store bought??? Decisions decisions???

On the up side - - - These little babies are gonna turn into new family cookbooks!! Think "Little Drummer Boy". Been working on them for a bit and will post pics after Christmas when I'm able to get back at them.

Grama's Album 2010

I'm so luck to still have a Grama at my age!!! She turned 90 last month. I thought since I've made mini albums for all kinds of babies being born, my MIL, my Mom and a few cookbook types that it was time to make one for the best Grandmother in the world!!! I'm sure this isn't all the pages but at least it'll give you an idea of what it looks like. The last few pics are of the box I made to store the album in.

Are they not the cutest couple ever???

August 2010

This past month has been a busy one!!! Both kids, their mates and children joined uis for a camping holiday. We all had a fantastic visit. Think we should do it every year!!! We are once again in Edson. I enjoy my time here as I have nothing to do but scrap, cook and clean up. I've been working on the Family Cookbooks again. So far I've finished 2 recipes each of Glenda D's, Rhonda's and my own. Waiting for Winter's and Brent's new entries!!! Any time now guys. I'll try to remember to post some pics of them in the next few days.

I'm back in the city!!!!

After 3 months in the mountains we've come back to the city. Lake Louise was BEAUTIFUL but the bear outside my door kinda put me on edge and my internet SUCKED!!! It was not a good thing for the weight loss goal either, not much walking!!!! Been working on a new cookbook (healthy chicken) and will post pics in the next few days. Also adding pages to the 12 copies of the "Family Cookbook". You 12 know who you are so if I haven't asked for 2 more recipes from you yet...get looking for your entries.

Beaded Pin Cushions Anyone??

I've been busy cross-stitching and beading little pin cushions for my daughter's work mates. I made that pink and blue one many many years ago and it's such an easy craft to take along in our travels. Just 14 count aida, floss and seed beads but even this supply is growing out of control.
I've also done some scrapbook pages but haven't taken pics yet. Maybe tomorrow??


It's an Electra Cruiser and my whole ass fits on the seat...how great is that???

We've moved again!! Now we are in the mountains, with the grizzly bears and wolves!!! At least that's what they keep warning me about but all I've seen so far is 3 bunnies.......

Where I walk.....

Even though I've been sick all week and really not into walking, I forced myself out the door today. It was beautiful out there. The trees are all frosty, covered with what they call Ice Fog. This has been going on all week long.
Now back to my bed, my bottle of Nyquil and my Spark book.

My Weight Loss Journey Layout

This is my first attempt at scrapping my weight loss. Since I'm not at my goal weight I have only included a before pic. This page was supposed to be for a sparkpeople challenge but...... I got sidetracked!!! Then ended up not using the elements requested. Oh well, maybe tomorrow I'll give it another stab.

2 More Special Cards for my Grandkids

I've been very busy the last few days but still managed to get my next 2 cards done. The weight loss journey has been a struggle this week. I'm still doing everything right but just not losing much. Although, slow and steady wins the race in the end. I'm working on a LO for my spark scrap challenge today and hope to post that tomorrow.
