I am starting to get crafty again!

I know I know it has been months since I updated last. But I haven't been in crafting mode much. I just got the mojo back!

Here are a few of my latest projects:

This one I used terra cotta saucers, spray paint and scrapbooking paper to make a few coasters. This is not an original idea I found it on a blog. I wish I would have booked marked it there were lots of great ideas on the blog. If I find it I will pass it along.

The next two pictures are of canvases I mod-podged some scrapbooking paper to them. I am going to hang one set of canvases in the master bathroom and the other set in the guest bathroom.

Master bath

I am going to post a picture when they are hanging on the walls!

The EPIC snow

We got about 2 ft of snow on Saturday and then today we got about another foot of the white stuff.

I am officially mad at snow and winter.

I am in so much pain for all the shoveling. Thank goodness my neighbor got a snow thrower last night and helped me dig out today while Matt was working another 12 hour day because of the weather.

Now the snow is starting to slow but the wind is picking up and I am praying we don't lose power. We need heat for the toddler and or my dad.

They are talking about more to come Monday. I think if that happens a lot of people will start popping Lexapro.

Come on Spring thaw we need it!

Here are a few pictures from Saturday. I have some from today but I haven't upload them yet. So more to come.

I can't believe we are in Feb already

It is Feb 3rd already.

So far I have this year I have learned to knit and have decided to knit some scarves as Christmas presents.

I am down 15 lbs and I weigh in tomorrow at Weight Watchers. I also joined the YMCA today so I can work on getting a work out plan going with my new eating plan!

I have been making my business calls! I am also decided to run a Valentine's Day special.

I take the first step in getting our fiances in order. I will report more when I know more.

Ty is adjusting to 4 well. He is turning more and more into a little person every day. No more baby.

Happy New Year!

I know it has been 5 weeks and it is almost February but I am here now to update.

Things got a little crazy around the holidays. We have been trying to get back into the swing of things....find our routine again.

A few things to keep in mind as you read. My word for 2010 is FOCUS. I need to focus on my health, my business, my family and our household ie fiances and organizing. So with that said I have decided to break my year down into quarters. So you will see a end of March deadline on some of the updates below.

Here is some updates.

So I have been on Weight Watchers for 15 weeks and I have lost 14.5 lbs! I am pretty proud of myself. I have been making positive changes in my diet and I have increased the amount of activity I do in a day. I am hoping to lose another 5-8lbs in by the end of March.

We are currently working on buying paint for the master bedroom! I can't wait to get in there clean out stuff we don't need like old clothes and shoes and putting a fun color on the walls! I am hoping to score some new bedding! We will see what I can find in our price range once the painting and decluttering is done. This project had a March deadline as well.

Matt has gotten a second job so we have some extra money to get our fiances back in shape foe the year. With Matt starting this second job I am working hard on getting 1-2 jewelry parties booked a week so we can start 2011 in better shape then we started 2010.

Tyler turned 4 on 23rd(yesterday). He is getting so and he talks nonstop. We had a little party for him last night with some of his friends and their parents. My best friend(his godmother) came all the way down for Staten Island to celebrate with us! We had a great time and Tyler loved having all his friends over to see his new train set he got.

Thanks for reading!

It is snowing here today and I am wondering if it is every going to stop.

We had to cancel our plans to go away for the night CHILDLESS due to the weather. But Matt promises we will get our night away for the nut hut at which we live.

SO with our snowed in day we started out with breakfast at a local diner and a trip to Home Depot for a tot size shovel and ice melt. Then we have cleared the drive and walkway 3 times, made peppermint bark, cleaned and wrapped gifts. We still have to mop, laundry and bake for tomorrows Christmas gathering at our house.

Here are a few pictures for Ty helping Matt clear the walkway/front yard.

I am sure we will have more outside fun tomorrow!

Thanks for reading!

I think I have a winner

I think I have decided what picture to use for our Christmas cards this year. Well there is going to be two....One picture is of Matt, Ty, dad and I....That one is going to friends and family from Brooklyn. Every year I get asked how dad is doing so I decided to send a picture to show them he is doing very well! The other picture is of the three of us out in the yard. That will go to all our friends and Matt's family. These wonderful pictures were taken by my friend Kristen Dunne to your right is her photography blog. She does amazing work! Thank you Kristen!!!

Now all I need to do is digitally scrapbook the cards and send them off to Send Out Cards!

Here is one of the pictures we are using and an awesome one of Ty!
