to the pumpkin prom!

Good Morning all.. Just finished this little pumpkin girl this morning. She is a swap piece for a flickr pal. I hope she likes her. Didnt get to work on witchy poo last night.. I went for a two mile walk with a friend and then had dinner, read through a bunch of blogs.. (so behind again!) and them planted myself on the couch for a while, and went to bed at 10:30!! thats unheard of! I must have been tired.. yeah.. but guess what time I woke up this am?? 4:40.. I tried to go back to sleep, but finally just got up at 5:00. Now its time to make my lunch.. and get ready to leave.
YOu would all be so proud of me. even though I ate "stuff" that I probably shouldnt have, I still had lost a couple pounds as of yesterday am. (If I read it correctly.) I have weight watchers tonight so I'll know then.. and then we weigh in again in the morning for the biggest loser at work. so if Im correct, Ive lost a total of about 9 pounds so far.. yahoo.. 9 down and ....... 61 to go! that still sounds like a lot.. but at least its not 70 anymore!
A note to my Halloween shadow box and pinkeep swappers.... if you were mailing overseas, you should have done so by now.. and if you are mailing here in the states, you should be mailing out tomorrow. There are alot of you I havent heard from, so please make sure you email me a pic of your creation! those that I have seen (or recieved) have been awesome!
OK.. got to go pack my lunch and get going here. Have a great day girls!

9 pounds woohoo! Don't worry about the other 60 cause you will lose them! I lost 85 pounds on weight watchers! I started weight watchers last week and I'm always in awe of how well it works as long as you track your points! I can't wait to see how your witch doll comes out!! What paint did you use on her face? I want to see body works too and wonder if those dead people gave permission to have their bodies on display??BTW I loved your skeleton dolls that I made one myself..hee,hee! I will post it on my blog later.

Enjoy the cold weather-not!

Vivian, You have the funnest spirit of any person I have ever met! The ideas for crafts just pour out of your mind like water. You make me want to craft again, I already have itchy fingers! I will wait for one of your swaps though. It will help me stay in control. Yeah! on 9 lbs. Look.... there they go! So very proud of you - know how difficult a goal this is! Have a great weekend! E
