Back to School!

Well it is that time again, Back to School! We have had a very busy summer with very little craft time for me but that is about to change. We also moved during the summer but we are finally situated and now with school starting back I can get back to crafting! School starts Friday, August 5th so only a couple more days. I have gotten all the girls school supplies, school clothes and shoes ( and boy is that getting expensive as they get older) now all we got to do is get hair cuts.I am actually going to be scrapping and crafting some today. Of course I can't break tradition as my oldest DD 10(almost 11) told me, I have to make teacher gifts for Back to School. So with that I am creating some cute altered notebooks and etc for the teachers. I will post pics once I am done. At least I am getting to play with new Cinch 2 making these little books!

I can not believe it is June 1st already! That means that half the year is pretty much over with. Which also means there are several holidays fast approaching and will be here before you know it. I have so many projects to get done besides my normal scrapbooking plus entertaining the kids during the summer.
I have been on a little shopping spree the last 2 weeks which has been really nice since I have not been able to shop in several months. I had to get a new Imagine (had to sell mine for bills several months back), 20 new carts, pink end caps for my I, cricut magazines, yourstory bundle, stamps, paper, and so much more! I feel like it's Christmas already!

I meant to post yesterday but got busy...probably will happen a lot with summer being here. I have to keep the kids entertained now. Well anyways yesterday was my weekly weigh in and I weighed 144 lbs! I lost weight! Hopefully that will continue to happen over the next couple weeks.

I finally finished putting everything away and organizing my craft room. I would have finished 3 days ago but I bought out my moms entire craft studio. She decided she no longer wanted to *COLLECT* scrapbook stuff anymore. LOL She is a sewing person and that is what she wants to devote her time to which is fine by me. I am glad I was able to get it all since I had to sell most of my scrapbook stuff back a few months ago to pay bills when we hit a rough spot. I hated having to sell my things especially my Cricut stuff. I had over 180 carts and sold them all but 4. I am now slowly building my cart collection again and I am back up to 16 with 9 more on the way and bidding on a few on eBay. But now I have way too much stuff and duplicates of almost everything. What I don't need I will be listing on craigslist within the next week.

I plan to do some crafty things tonight so should have some projects to post tomorrow!

I know I have been MIA for several months and I am so sorry. My family and I have had to move twice now in the last 4 months due to work and it has been rough. But we are now settled here for at least a year while waiting for our new home to be built. We started the land clean up this past week so hopefully that will be cpmpletely done within next couple of weeks.
I haven't gotten to do much scrapping in almost 6 months but did do two layouts real quick yesterday for my youngest DD's school album.
I am getting ready to start a new diet which is going to be hard for me. I have already lost about 5 lbs and I now weigh 150 lbs which is alot considering I am only 5 ft tall (pretty short). I am tired of being over-weight and have finally decided to do something about it. I have decided the only way to stick with it and stay motivated is to keep a daily record of it here on my blog.
My goal is to reach 140 lbs by my birthday which is June 17th and then my 2nd goal is to reach 130 lbs by July 17th and final goal is to reach 120 lbs by August 17th.
So here it is:
Week 1
Day 1
I weighed in at 150 lbs
