Yeay! It's Friday! I have quite a busy day today too. I have 2 gift basket orders due, and I have a cupcake order, and 2 cakes (I just need to start making the decorations for the cakes)! How exciting. I love it when I have lots of things to do.

I haven't been to the gym lately, so that's a big bummer... so I'm going to try to get in a walk or a jog today at some point. I really need to get back on my cardio regimen. The weather looks pretty nice outside today, so I'm going to try to make it a point to get outside to do my walk/run today, that should make me more motivated. I love being outside to run, then I'm not like a hamster on a wheel, just going around in circles on the track in the gym.

Evan passed his swim class last night! Yeay for him. Although you are supposed to be 6 to move on to the level one class (from the preschool class), his instructor said that he has the skills to move up a level! I'm so proud of him. I am going to take him to the pool for a fun day today or tomorrow. Just let him play in the water and have fun... it's a good way for me to sneak in a little exercise too.

I guess there's not too much else to report here. My diet has totally taken a nose dive, so I need to make sure I get that in check today. I started the day off with a banana and a dark chocolate chip cookie, with a cup of coffee. I was thinking that the banana and the cookie cancel each other out.... right? Ha ha ha So I'm going to try to make sure and have a healthy lunch, and snack and then salad or something lighter for dinner. I hope my good intentions work out for me.

I think my problem is that I love food so much. I love cooking, and tasting, and trying new recipes. I love food!!! Ha ha ha I just need to continue to try and find more healthy things to cook.

Ok enough for today. See you all soon.

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!

Good morning crafty people!
