Catch Up not Ketchup

Okay, let's see, I have not been a good blogger and my cards lately are lacking some freshness but I will continue to create just to get the stash full for craft fairs and post them here. I keep opening storage containers to find stuff that I forgot I had and it's just like going shopping, :-)

It looks like the J.U.G.'s trip to Vegas is really going to happen. Many of us have booked our flights and this past Saturday a handful of us met at Starbucks to firm up some other stuff. We have a schedule of who is coming and going when and their flight numbers. The rental van has been ordered. Our show tickets have been ordered. We collected some money to send down to Stacie (who lives in a suburb of Vegas) to stock the fridge for our arrival. Looks like out of the 12 of us (myself and Stacie included) we will have a gathering of at least 9. Trips to downtown, the strip, Hoover Dam and a spa are all on the agenda.

Completed my third week at Weight Watchers and last night I released (into the wild) 1.8 lbs. That added to my two previous weeks brings the total released to 3.8 lbs. I am setting a goal of 12 to 15 lbs. by the time the Vegas trip rolls around at the beginning of May.

Work is still a roller coaster. Some days I love working there and other days I really hate working there. I know that I am very fortunate to have a job so I will focus my attention on the good days and craft for happiness on the bad days.

I have been doing some purging and have two bags of clothes, an old computer monitor and some other items for the Salvation Army. Does anyone else have the problem of getting the items for donation out of the house, into the car and to the drop off box? I am such a lazy arse. I really need to do that this week. Not only will it help someone but it will make more room in my house. A precious commodity.

Here are the cards that I have recently created. I have more at home but the memory card in my camera is full and I need to purge some.

Not a good picture but I went into my box of stickers and found a sheet of birthday stickers and made a couple easy peeszy ones.

Ahhh, the man of steel

Take me to your leader

Found this cute paper and these stickers and did a simple lazy combo.

I just love this little monkey!
