My 1st Word Album!!

I struggled so much with this! I wanted to use chipboard that I got from packaging from books at school. Well, when I finally bought the deep housing blade, it wouldn't cut! Even after 6 cuts.. then it would move,, i wouldn't move to the currently place.. It was just very cheap chipboard. So I decided to use cereal box type paper!

I now know to use a thicker font for this.. I should of used the blackout letters. I used the swivel clasp by tim holtz.. i saw Cristina from Creation with Cristina use it in one of her episodes. I finally had went to a M's that had them!

I think its ok for my first word album! My brother will like it! HE will cry!

Hope you like!!

SEI paperpads.. and MME.. hmmmm one says 24.99.. Can't be 90% off.. But i grabbed the two. Went looking around found the refill for my zyron. ..

When i went to the register.. the MME came up for $1.99! YES 1.99! OMG.. then she scanned the SEI.. hmmmm wait no UPC code on it.. I told her they were both on the rack in the front.. She goes ahh i'll scan it the same as the other!! YES i got them both for $1.99!!! YAY!! AWESOME DEAL!!

GetSketchy Challenge

Feeling like a Failure...

So I am banded.. LAP Banded... July 20, 2009.. i've only lost 30 lbs.. been stuck at minus 30 for a few months. I've heard people mention they only can get a good 1/4 cup of food and they are good to go.

ME? i'm still eating a good 1 to 2 cups. More like 2- 2 1/2 cups! I don't know.. Dr. is putting a 1/2 cc per month. He said he does not want to over do it. He gets patients all the time saying they are miserable because they can't eat. He is happy if i only loose a good 1 lb per week. UGH!

Why can't i stop eating? I"m so addicted to food! I have no idea how i'm going to do it with the holidays! I have to cook thanksgiving lunch at work. UGh!

Today.. for the 1st time i feel pain in my port area! Never had that feeling before. I feel like a big ole loser! Why can't i get this to work! Sometimes I feel maybe my band slipped! What does it feel like when my band slips?? I don't know... I sooo want to cry! Why can't i do this…

GetSketchy#13 Card Challenge..

I am soo late posting this! I did this a while back but haven't posted! This is a Thank You card I made for CraftJunkie TOO for the prize she sent me!! I was sooo excited to receive it!!
So here is the card and the sketch! Thanks for looking!

I am sooo SAD!!!

I have been BANNED! I'm not talking about my LAPBAND! MY boyfriend.. just told me I have a problem! I am spending too much $ on my scrapbook and cardmaking supplies. Which I'm sure you all are thinking... HEY you work .. its your MONEY! But its MONEY I don't really have to spend! :( I'd rather buy supplies then EAT..hmmmm but i still haven't lost any more weight!! UGh!! (side tracked--sorry)

I had the PINKSTAMPER Video in my cart at custom crops... i told him he was like.. Kathy... you have a problem.. you do not have money. :( I need to stop charging on my CREDIT card when.. i'm out of my money... :( ugh...

I OHHH SO NEED TO WIN scrap prizes to feed my HABIT!

*** I leave you mourning!!! :( waahh ahhhh waaahahhh !!

Since it says Weight loss Journal on top!....

OK.. haven't put in anything weight related in a while. Don't know if some of you all know.. but back in July 20th, i had the lapband operation. Which means, i got a band around the top of my stomach. This makes a smaller pouch on top for my food. So i'm suppose to feel fuller sooner.

Well i'm still stuck at 30 lbs lost. I'm am eating less but I could do better.. i'm so in love with food!

Well reason i'm posting this is because i made a revelation yesterday. I was out eating lunch with my mom at this very nice chinese resturant. We placed our lunch order (beef mushroom) then the people with carts were passing by offering dim sum.. Hmmm never had dim sum before.. so we got asian pork spare ribs... (YUM! nice flavor) then shrimp spring rolls. OMG sooo good!

then our lunch we ordered came... hmmm i looked at it... ate one bite then i couldn't anymore.

MY REVELATION?! Before my lapband.. i would of eaten the whole thing! WOWO! I've come a long way! I still…
