I am glad I have finally posted something new in one of my stores. I feel like I have neglected them so much. Well, truthfully, I have. I am hoping to get back into making more for them soon!

I absolutely LOVE my A Muse Cupcake Set (2-CUPCSM)!! I played with it yesterday and these are just a couple of the cards I made. I used scraps of paper I had laying on my counter (shocking for those of you who know me, huh??). I also opened my Lil' Davis Glitter Glaze Brownie paint for the first time so my cupcakes could have chocolate icing. The purple card also has the extra bling of A Muse Mini Star Twinkle Stickers.

Truly that is good. Especially considering Tuesday was the first day I stuck to good foods all day. I also have to add I am back into my excercise routine and will make it to Hot Yoga at least 4, if not 5, times this week. Let me tell you, I can TELL I got out of my exercise routine. So, I feel positive about things to come.
Thank you to all of those who gave me breakfast tips last week. I appreciate all your help and support. I have been having a small peanut butter sandwich for breakfast and it seems to be really keeping me full. I went to the grocery on Monday and have some of the items you suggested to try out as well. Thanks again!!
I hope everyone has a great day!!

Anyway, A Muse has released their new Valentines Day stamps this past week and they are ADORABLE!! Check them out at: http://www.amuseartstamps.com/ Also they have started a new message board/forums. When you go to the site, look for the "A Muse Lounge" button up at the top. The lounge is great. You will want to find a comfy chair and stay a while!!
Off to work at the Hot Yoga booth at the Health Fair and then to a SU Card Class. I will try to post some pictures later this weekend!!
Have a great day!

For those of you who don't know, I had lost 75 pounds. It is now more like 55 and it is very frustrating to be going the wrong way. But, I did it once before and I will get back on track.
Here is one of my biggest challenges and I am hoping maybe some one out there can shoot me some ideas. I LOVE breakfast. It seems if I don't eat a good, filling breakfast, my day potentially can go downhill fast. If I eat a good breakfast, I tend to stay on track better. My problem is I don't always have time to fix much in the morning and you can only eat so many boiled egg whites. Does anyone have any good breakfast ideas??

Well, happy 4th day of the new year!! Today is the first day I have really felt like my old self. So, when I would accomplish a task, I would make a card. These are what I got done today. Note, however, I did get more than two tasks done!
The card on the left has a cupid stamp I purchased on Etsy I believe. I will have to look that up. The scalloped base it is mounted on is a vintage piece of paper from some old college book I bought at a local flea market. I colored the Cupid using my Copics markers and glitter markers. The sentiment is from A Muse!! The ribbon, believe it or not, is some I have had around for years and I thought it just worked on this card.
The second card I couldn't resist making. Those of you who know me have heard me talk often about my Dad and his cattle. I bought this stamp because of those cattle. I don't know if it was meant to be a hereford, but it sure looks a lot like one. We have polled herefords (means our cattle do not have the horns). Anyway, I colored the bull to match a hereford's hide using Koh-I-Noor woodless colour pencils. The sentiment matched the stamp perfectly. It is from A Muse, of course! The bull stamp was purchased from Cowtown Stamps (thanks to Debbie H. for telling me about this site!)
Back to work for me tomorrow. We have court and the last time I checked we had 12 sentencings. Therefore, I fully expect to be in court ALL day! I have enjoyed my time off, despite being sick. Like Betty mentioned on her blog, I am kind of looking forward to having some structure back, but I am sure I will be muttering about work by Tuesday!
Off to do some more computer work - like list these cards on Etsy. Thanks for stopping by!

Here is wishing each and every one the New Year that you want to have!!
I am still fighting my cold, but am feeling better. I am hoping I am able to actually get some things accomplished today.
