Happy Friday!

Although I just wanted to stay in bed this morning, I don't have the luxury.

I have a wedding cake to finish.... so I have to get up and get moving. I'm sitting here with my morning cup of coffee watching the news waiting for a glimpse of the royal wedding cake. So far, I haven't seen it..... that's what is going to give me inspiration for my cake decorating this afternoon.

There is snow on the ground in Idaho this morning, so that is going to put a hamper on my outside running. I did, however, go to the gym last night and ran 2 miles of in and outs (run and walk intervals) with my sister. It was cold outside yesterday jogging in the wind, but the snow on the ground is a whole different story! I'm not freezing my fingers and nose off again for no stinking reason!

Plus, I've done cardio for 4 days straight now, so I think that I deserve a day off, right?

My diet wasn't all that great yesterday. I had cereal fro breakfast, then a piece of toast before my jog. For lunch I had nachos that were made on black bean chips with rice, red beans and salsa. Then for dinner, I had....(gasp) pizza!!! Ok, so after making a cake all day, and jogging in the morning then the gym in the afternoon, a slice of pizza was well deserved. It was veggie pizza from Idaho Pizza company, and instead of having 2 or 3 slices, I had 1 and some salad. So at least I exercised some will power.

Ok, well, my coffee has gone cold, and I'm sick of watching the same loop of the Royal Wedding on CNN, so it must be time for me to get to work. I'll post pictures this evening or tomorrow of the finished wedding cake. I hope you all have a great Friday and I wish you all some sun!

Tip of the day: It is not ok to sit on the couch to watch the royal wedding ALL DAY, you must rip yourself away from the TV and burn some calories at some point!

Growing in Unity Day 1

Hello there Unity Crafters!!!!! Today marks my very first day in the Growing in Unity event.  Today I'm featuring a card that I made using the set {Jar Full of} Sweetness.  Those of you who know me, know that I'm completely addicted to apothecary jars and have lots of them filled with all sorts of candies on my countertop.  I adore them and i'll never stop collecting them.  So, when I saw this set, I knew I HAD TO HAVE it straight away!
I'm very new to making shaker cards but I thought it would be perfect to have the little sequins I purchased from Firefly Crafts inside the jars to make it look like little candies in there!

I also used a few of the flowers I purchased from Firefly Crafts as well, they are made by Wild Orchid and they are absolutely perfect!

I hope you enjoyed this card today and it inspired you to make something crafty! Surf the Unity site and find a cute stamp and get with it! he he he! See you all tomorrow!
