So, I've made it through two weeks back at work. Funny how it feels like I haven't been gone at all. I'm feeling well and am back to exercising on a regular basis. yeah! I am still working up to five days but last week was two days and this week I've managed three days. We'll see if I manage to work out tomorrow too. Today I decided to live on the edge and started back on the weight machines. Didn't over do it though. I don't think I will be sore tomorrow but I did want to say hello to my muscles. As of today I'm down 29 pounds.
Last Saturday Rebecca, Kimberly and I spent the day at my local scrapbooking store, EMI. It's been there for a while but I never managed to visit until the Saturday before when Kimberly was there celebrating her birthday. Just had to stop by since she was practically across the street. We had a card challenge Saturday and were given strips of paper and a card with a template and told to expand on it. Below is the card I made by adding some paint, a painted chipboard heart with glitter and of course some flowers. It was a fun challenge since the paper was already picked out and it was more about embellishing.
Lately, I've also been looking for inspiration to branch out into more creative altering. I absolutely love some of the publications by Stampington & Co. They have just come out with a new one called Artful Blogging and is mentioned on several blogs with links to featured blogs. Something Sublime is a good one to check out. I am going to have to do something with the look of my blog but it's going to take me a while to cogitate on it. Checkout some of the other very creative Stampington publications.
