For all you gals that like using postage stamps..........

My husband is a stamp collector so I have access to alot of topical stamps, so I decided to see what I could find. I have a few here for you guys: fruit, flowers, butterflies and mushrooms. Let me know by leaving a comment if there are any topics you would like to see next and I will look for them.

Healthy Eating Progress............

     Day 7, which happens to be a cheat day where I can eat whatever within reason. I weighed in and down 5 pounds. Hope it keeps up like this. I have one more week on this detox part of the program and so far.....so good. Still miss my coffee but I will survive !! LOL

I am eating healthy..........

     My daughter has been at me for along time to quit eating processed foods and I found a meal program that works with you on it. I decided I need to get healthier so I can stick around to watch Kyle grow up. I just started last Monday and they start you off with a two week detox menu and I am doing okay on it so far. Most of the food is stuff I like, only a couple that I don't and it is pretty flexible so I can work around it. So far the hardest thing is only one cup of coffee and NO creamer.
I do tend to feel hungry in the evening but I just drink my water and it passes. I think we are so use to eating more food then we need and when you want to get to eating right your stomach revolts !! lol
I just remember the saying " Eat to live, not live to eat " Wish me luck !!!!!!

So glad to be back on the Gecko Galz Design team..........

I was on the 2012 and 2013 Design Team and was only gone about 6 months but I really missed it. I have gotten really inspired with this months designs and when all come out you will see why. I got them finished in record time and made more samples than I usually do. When they are so great I tend to do more....lol !!!!  I am happy to be back in time to join in on the blog hop in October. It is always a fun event and you get alot of great images to play with along with fantastic inspiration from our talented design team, I have already worked on some of my project for it. Hope you all join in !

Back in the saddle again................

I am back on the design team for Gecko Galz. I sure missed creating for them so now I have to get busy. I already have two samples done and a few others that I am working on. I kinda feel like a kid again because some of the images are zentangles and I have been doing alot of coloring. We also have a blog hop coming up in October so keep an eye open for news of that....lots of free images when you do the blog hop plus seeing all the creations from our talented design team.
Come on back and see me,
Barbara

Okay.........time for some free stuff !

I got a couple free images for you from my postcard collection. One is a postcard from 1934 of some Elves and the other is of Brownies but it is not dated. Have fun creating !!!
