I hear the 'what was I thinking' except in my case I've been inhaling processed carbs and not surprising the scales is telling on me! Back on track starting TODAY!

I ate WAY too much over the week-end at my sister's for her birthday celebration. Paying for it this week! What was I thinking?!?!

I went out of town to see my grandchildren this week-end, and came back worn-out last night! Went to two soccer matches, two baseball games, made Halloween cookies with the grandkids, cooked dinner, exercised, and helped my 10-year-old granddaughter with her science project.
Whew!

Just checking in before this weekend gets rolling. I have writing assignments due Sunday and as usual have managed to put them off until the last minute!

So if I'm MIA until Sunday evening or so you know why!

Have a great weekend all!

Good morning everyone, my it has been a good while since I have been able to post. I am just jumping in real quick to give a shout out to all. My work days has been unbelievable and full of stress. I work at a long term care facility and with the new government implementations we have been on a roller coaster ride since it began. I have been working long hours (last pay period 100.75 hours to be exact)leaving me no space to do much of anything. I hope all is well with you all. Well, it is back to the grind stone for me. Have a great day.

Denise

Thanks for taking a look at my projects. I'm still at the beginner's stage at the fused glass, but I'm having fun with it. I only go once a week, so I'm still surprised how the different pieces of glass end up looking after they are fired.
Yes, these craft projects can really end up costing us a lot of time and money, can't they?!?!

WOW- spent some time looking up fused glass information last night and it looks like an amazing project!

I spent time working on an over-sized afaghan I'm making for a Christmas gift yesterday and have a few other projects in mind as well. Now to find time and moneyt for my projects list and I'd be good to go for the next few months ...LOL!

Welcome, DebbieDay!
I've been making fused glass pieces, and now I just need to wrap them with silver wire to make necklaces and earrings. May or may not have them ready by Christmas!

emoticon Good-morning all- I just joined here today and thought I'd look around and get aquainted!

Christmas is coming up and on a 'budget' ( isn't everyone?) I'm planning on crafting some gifts!

Have a couple afaghans in the works and plans for a robe for my soon-to-be 4 year old granddaughter.

Recently picked up watercolors and pastels after years of neglect so may do something with them as well.

Anyone else planning on making special Christmas projects?

Be Blessed! -- Deborah

In my art class last week we did sgraffito, so I'm thinking that next week I want to make a small book and scratch out little Halloween-themed shapes on the pages. Still at the idea stage at this point.

I've never made one myself, but I've seen some really clever purses/bags made out of the tops of jeans and then decorated with more studs, rhinestones, iron-patches and buttons.

Edited to add:
I just did a google search using the term "blue jean purses" and found lots of references, plus images. Take a look when you have time!

I think I'm going to dig out my leftover wool stash and knit a pair of felted mittens for a girlfriend of mine. I need to get back to cutting out denim squares for my rag quilt. I think I have more than enough, but I want to get these darn jeans out of my sewing room! Any ideas what to do with the top of the jeans? Or should I just throw them out?

I love decoupage, too, and always see something I want to paste over. Today I bought my 10-year-old granddaughter some shoes on sale and I'm determined to decoupage something on the things -- comics? Found some Outdoor Mod Podge to coat them with, hoping that will help them withstand the wear and tear they're bound to get.
Good luck with your project!

Good day!

IMPROVINGME I had an awesome time with my family, they had me going every day, I think I only got to post on Monday and that was it. I am back at home now so I have to start focusing on getting my mind back in work mode so that I will be ready once I get there. Seemed like I blinked and the week was over. I enjoyed myself and the good thing is I have 2 more weeks of vacation left so I will be taking another one in August and the next will be the week of Thanksgiving that I normally take each year.

Have a great day team.

What a joy, I will be visiting my two grandsons next week and is really looking forward to a great time. I am trying to get everything done at work so my mind can stay only on my time with my grandsons and not on what I left undone at work; I am nearly done so I think I'll have my desk cleared before weeks end.
Have a great Wednesday team!
