I got my PhD! :)

I totally spaced sharing with my friends in BlogLand that I got my PhD the other day! :) For those that don't know, I'm a Close To My Heart independent consultant. CTMH offers training courses for us to learn about the products we sell, techniques used on various projects, how to run a successful business, etc. They have the bachelors, masters and PhD courses and I completed all 3 levels and got this certificate in the mail the other day! I totally wasn't expecting it and inside was this super pretty magnetic clasp to wear around! I couldn't get a good shot of the pin but it says Close To My Heart across the top of the circle, the bottom part of the circle says Training Academy and the whooshy thing across the front of the circle has a rhinestone on each end and says PH.D. Certified in the middle! So cute and what a great company to do something like that for little ol' me!

Also, a few weeks ago when my family and I were shopping out of town I stopped by Michaels (oh how I wish we had one in our town) and found these clear glass Christmas ornaments. I bought some super cute Christmasy rub-ons and thought it would look super cute on the ornaments. Unfortunately the 4th ornament broke when I was rubbing the "LOVE" rub-on onto it but I still got "peace", "joy" and "faith", all of which are great things to have! :)

Here's a picture:

I'm thinking about designating them for certain people or families. I want to write on pretty paper, prayers or bible verses or special things about each person that we love and then folding them accordian style and putting them inside the ornament. Not sure about it though...still have some time to think about it! Any suggestions????

Christmas Cards

October 17th I'm having a Christmas card workshop where we'll be making 10 cards. I'm trying to get my samples finished up so last night I added some embellishments to the 4 cards that weren't quite done and then created 2 more. The card that had trees on it I just left the same so I'm not posting that picture again.

Here are the 4 that I had already posted pictures of previously but thought I'd show the finished work.

And here are the 2 cards I made up last night:

Started a 2nd blog!

Ok, so yesterday I started a 2nd blog! I wanted this blog to be specifically used for my paper crafting and I'll be using my other blog for more personal stuff like my Weight Watchers stuff, and family things. If you want to check it out and become a follower, it's called Desiring To Be A Domestic Diva. Click (HERE) to be taken to it.

I'm hoping to get a chance to work on some crafts this weekend...we'll see though! Life is crazy busy and tonight my hubby & I are going to spend the evening together! It's the first night in like forever that we don't have anything going on after he gets off of work so I requested that we don't have any friends over, don't make plans with anyone, we're just going to kick back and enjoy each others company!! I'm excited!

Have a great weekend!!

WW week #11 weigh-in

Another quick post...life is busy, busy!! I lost 2 lbs this week which is good, it makes up for the 1.6 lbs I gained last week! LOL So I'm down like 18.2 lbs total so far! I love losing weight but it's getting to the point that my clothes are starting to look all scroungy and baggy on me but I don't want to fork out the money to buy new clothes when I plan on losing even more weight. It's a vicious cycle! I guess it's a small price to pay to get healthy so I better quit whining! :)

Gotta run! Hubby and I are getting ready for our Cub Scout leader meeting!! Fun stuff!
