This week I took a class at Scrap Etc. and made a really cool tray that I'm going to keep for myself but reproduce for a few people as gifts. Really cool!! I'm starting to think about Christmas presents, Santa presents and things I want to make. I would so love to bake a ton of cookies for everyone, but I'm not that good at baking cookies. I want to be though! Practicing would be good - but honestly, cookies aren't on the diet. Speaking on 'the diet' I've lost 28 pounds since mid June. Huge deal for me. I need to lose about 20-25 more. Then I would at least be closer to me ideal weight. I'll keep working at it, but it's no fun!! Smaller clothes are fun though!
Oh, back to Scrap Etc. I went to class and was able to enjoy a nice lunch with Virginia and Carol - and it was great to just be a girl. I really missed that. I had girlfriends that I did lunch with during school, but that last semester, we weren't together and didn't get to do that often. So it's been fun to do it here - go to a class with girls and be girly and eat lunch and talk about girly things!! I'm outnumbered at home - so girl time is GOOD time. I had lunch today with my cousin and two of her close friends. Fun times had by all. I'm going to another class Saturday too so I'll have more fun projects this weekend to work on!
My high school's homecoming is Friday night and we're talking about going with my cousin. Jason has tons of homework, Cole's not going to care about it, but I'd like to go for old times sake I think. We'll see. Jason has to work Saturday morning, so I don't get to do the Scrap Etc lockin, but the class will be good enough. Then Sunday he's got to go to the school library and work on papers. So nothing major planned. I'll probably scrap a little, work on some projects, an altered item or too for Cole's teacher's birthday.
I'll try to update after the weekend with some new photos of things I will finish - I hope!! OH - all the halloween decor is out at our house too - pumpkins galore - i love it! I love this time of year - my favorite!
So happy fall
