Jan 12 2008 was National Weigh-in Day! (I think that's how they call it), so HAP had Weight Wise class, so I went in the morning for it. It was nice, they had a healthy continental breakfast and a guest speaker. Plus they had nurses to take your blood pressure, scales to weigh yourself, etc. They also gave you a couple of books. A cookbook and a workbook to help you keep track of what your doing and hints on how to achieve them. Which is real nice. Well, I left there a little early because Kmart has a New Day Your Way campaign. You get weighed in (which I was 6 lbs lighter on their scales! hmm). the first 50 people per store gets a free gift. Which was coupons and a workout DVD. What I should really say, it's a DVD that has three 10 minute workouts...which is really nice. and a chance to win some prizes!!
So, I figured why not! It wouldn't hurt to lose some weight. I am going on a cruise in October 08. I would like to look nice in a bathing suit and shorts! Also, tried of seeing pictures of me so big! OK...let's not run myself down and get discouraged here!
So, yesterday, Saturday the 26th. I went in and got weighed and I lost five pounds. I just watched what I ate. Tried drinking more water. Now I need to start some exercise! Truthfully, I'm surprised that I lost. The night before we had our monthly meeting of the Loomatics. And there's always these great munchies!! Deb brought these chips that she gets from Canada. They are soooo good! Somebody else brought in herb olives and cheese. Somebody else brought brie cheese!! (like they said at the Hap meeting, if you have to have it, half it!)
The meeting was great. It's always fun being with these ladies. The conversations always turns over so fast or there's two or three different ones going on at the same time...it's just a hoot!
We're doing a Round Robin Bead Embroidery Project. It's interesting what each individual person started on for their project. Me, I did the Sun and my astrological sign, which is Leo, in the center. Hopefully they'll put their signs around or who knows any sign. Maybe even a stop sign! I shouldn't say that. It'll give BadLiz some ideas! Liz is doing a moose, gee I wonder why? Sue is doing her hand. (both of these ladies blog are listed to the right) One is doing sheep, another an owl scene, a snowman and I really don't remember what else. I should have scanned mine before passing it on. This way I could have posted it, but know I won't see it again till next year!!

Gee that BadLiz went and left another comment! Gee what's a person to do? LOL No really, she's a beading buddy and good friend! The picture to the left is the beading group I belong to. It's part of the "Greatlakes Beadworkers Guild" that I also belong to. They are some great beaders and good people to be with!
I also wanted to show what I had made for Christmas gifts (07) for some other friends of mine. I took a class with Anne Severine on Oct 19, 2007. It was her class for "Wild Roses Necklace" and on the 20th I took her class for "Saraguro Triple Triangulos Necklace". So the gifts I made are the two pictures (should be up top). I made five of the "Wild Roses Necklaces" and five key chains (yes, I know there's only four of each in the picture) and eleven pairs of earrings. The other necklace I referenced is for personal wear, hopefully I'll get it scanned and post it. Better yet, maybe I'll create a photo site of the jewelry I have made.
For Christmas my DH gave me a Rotary Tool and three kits from Ann Bensons site.
