omg!!! yes!! I can post again!

 So, did you miss me??  Eiy Yie Yie!!  talk about frustrating!  I dont know why I couldnt post here.. but I could not.  I had seriously thought I was going to have to totally give up blogging... thats how frustrated I was.  I'm not even really sure that this post will go up.. but it seems to be acting like it will.   fingers crossed!!
 So, as usual, Ive been pretty busy.  finished up this big bear order.  She also ordered these memory stars as well.  I finally made up a little poem to go with the stars.. what do you think?   Ive been going to make something up for years. I dont know why I didnt.  It took all of a whole minute! LOL!
"like a twinkling evening star
smiling, laughing from a far
Please remember me this way 
'til we meet again someday."
I have two more bears to finish up between tonight and tomorrow morning and then I will be free of bears for a little bit.  then there is still some wedding stuff to do the next two weekends.. but then... I can finally do some Halloween crafting!!   I do have my house finished inside..  girls..  I have a confession to make.   I have too  much stuff.  SERIOUSLY!!  But it makes me happy!  All that stinking orange and black cuteness!!   If blogger is going to start letting me post again, then I will start posting pictures.  (Its been killing me all week not being able too!!!)

soo, speaking of stinking cute....  heres a pic of miss marla princess pie.   OMG.. I love this baby!  she is soooo awesome!   I kept her overnight friday night and she was such a good girl.  she is a funny little thing.  I just want to eat her up!  She kept going to the fridge saying.. "hungie, cheese pease?"  And then when I opened it, she knew right where the cheese sticks were. 
So, today, I am going shopping with Bethany and Vanessa to find a dress for the wedding.  wish me luck.  Ive no clue what I want to wear.  I had really wanted to loose a lot more weight by now, but the last two months Ive been spinning my wheels.. up 3 pounds, down 3.. up 3  down 3.. and right now, I think I'm up 5.. which means Ive still lost 28 pounds.. but I have to get back on and stay on track.   blaah blaah blaah...I get sick of hearing myself say that right before i stuff something else in my mouth!  LOL!
OKeedokie girlie pies..  I need to get caught up with your blogs now.  
fingers crossed that this posts! 
Happy Day!


Musings from Kim K. said...

So happy to have blogger finally behaving for you again. You've been such a busy artist with your orders and how nice that Miss Marla spent the night. You are such a hands-on Grandma. Can't wait to see more Halloween. I know you think you have too much, but I think I can compete on the number of tubs with our Annual Halloween party decor. Halloween HUGS!!!

PS. A 28 pound weight loss is fantastic. You have so much to be proud of. Have fun dress shopping! Bring that camera along!!

I did miss my morning visit with you, so glad blogger is working again for you!! Those bears are too cute!!! And the poem is the perfect touch!

Theresa said...

YES... I HAVE missed you! Seems as though all went well with your post this time! Keep at it Sister, don't give up:) Cutest little helper-pie! She is TOO precious! Enjoy your Sunday dear Viv, HUGS!

Sandra said...

Yay, you're back. I read you regularly, but rarely comment. I am always amassed at your energy and how much you do. I just took an early retirement from social work, so now you are my inspiration for getting more active in my crafting. I love seeing your projects and your sweet little grand babies......keep up the good work!

Cindy said...

Hope you are here to stay:) I hate it when things go wrong with blogger - I feel so helpless with computers.
You have done an amazing amount of work during this time! BTW, Marla is a doll! I hope I get a grand daughter. I love my grandson to pieces, but I want a little girl to spoil too. Have a great day!

I hate it when blogger acts up! that's when I'm usually thinking, "Why oh why didn't I print up one of those blog books?!"

Your bears, stars and GG are adorable!

I'm still in shock that my girls moved away.

congrats on 28 pounds! that's what I lost 2 years ago but I gained 20 back. :( Girl, I'm so frustrated with my body right now! I worked so hard all summer. I mean- swimming 6 laps some days, eating more of the good stuff and less of the bad stuff and nothing to show for it but a tan and a belly!

The other day I got so mad and just sat all day and pigged out. I ate THREE smore muffins! Guess what? I LOST 4 oz! GROAN! I'm tired of trying to figure my body out. I think I'll just go craft and get fat! :) Menopause is a killer!

Glad you are back!

Susan said...

So glad you're back. Congrats on keeping your weight off. I agree with Holly, crafting and getting fat is much more fun. Take care and save some cheeze for me, I like it too!

Elizabeth Andrus said...

Holy Blogger! I'm so glad to see you made it back. What adorable bears Viv. I can't see bears without thinking of you.
Have you heard of the prescription med called Qsymia? It is a weight loss management drug, FDA approved, that helps the brain regulate hunger and feeling full. My sister-in-law has had such incredible success on the med. I am going to my drs. to see about being put on it. Check it out on the web.
Have a great week ahead! E

28 pounds! Congratulations! You are so incredibly talented, your bears and stars are so beautiful. Do you have an online shop?

Are you hating this freezing weather as much as I am???

NanaDiana said...

Nice to see you back posting, Viv. Love those bears and that poem for the stars is a darling idea. Love your sweet little Miss Marla. Hope you have a great Sunday evening- xo Diana

Blogger was giving me fits and then someone mentioned that I should use Google Chrome instead of Internet Explorer to get on-line. That did the trick for me. I don't have any problems loading as many pictures as I want or doing posts. Good luck. It can be so frustrating. I love your bears..they are super cute, and the stars are a really nice remembrance.

Erica of Golden Egg Vintage said...

Oh cute! I didn't know that you make the stars too. What a great idea. Boy you work hard! The bears look wonderful! Marla is a honey, and I bet she loves staying with you!
I say YAY for 28 pounds! That's a major accomplishment!
Erica :)

Blogger wouldn't let you post because it knew you needed to concentrate on that big bear order!

Huge CONGRAT'S on the weight loss! I hope you find the perfect dress! Love the memory bears and stars!
I found my dress at a consignment shop! It still has the tag on it!
