I ordered this set almost 2 months ago. And, I hadn't done anything with it. But, last night I decided to sit down with it and I actually really like it! It's a pretty simple card and it doesn't take a lot of supplies which is great.

Stampsets: Carte Postale, French Flair BG, Weathered BG, Print Pattern BG
Ink: River Rock, Elegant Eggplant
Cardstock: River Rock (5 1/2 x 8 1/4), Elegant Eggplant (1 1/2 x 1 1/2), Whisper White (1 1/2 x 1 1/2) - cut it down after you stamp it

"She left 5 minutes ago"

So yesterday I was supposed to go with my mom to meet the lady that owns the coffee shop who wants to sell my cards. But, my mom had asked 2 of her friends to go along with my little sister. Long story short we had to wait for everyone and when we got there the lady at the register said that owner had left 5 MINUTES AGO! I was so disappointed and it was hard to not be upset. But, I am going to call and see if I could come meet her on Wednesday before I head out of town for Thanksgiving. I really want this. I want to sell my cards. I want to have my own business. This is a starting point and I can't give up.

Too Long....

OK, so it's now been officially over a month since I've stamped! I'm going through withdrawal! But, I'm being pulled back in... first SU sends me a really cute stamp set called Time Well Spent. Then my mom texted me yesterday to say she was talking to someone that owned a coffee shop and they are interested in selling my cards! OMG! That's what I want to do! I want to sell my cards! But, it's also very scary all at the same time. What if they see my cards and don't like them?? I don't even know how to sell my cards!

I've started dieting. I want to lose weight. And, feel better about my body. So far I've lost 7 lbs in 2 weeks. I have so much more energy! It's great! And, I've gived up soda and I think that that has helped a lot. I've come to notice that the hardest thing is not eating when I get home from work. I think that it's because I'm an emotional eater. But I recognize this and I'm going to fix it.

On that note today is day 1 for exercising. I'm doing the Firm. It's synergy training meaning cardio/aerobics with light weights. It's supposed to speed up the process with life long effects. Yesterday I was at a conference for work and one of the classes was dealing with stress. Exercising is supposed to help. So, maybe it will be killing 2 birds with 1 stone. If I'm less stressed I wont want to eat more. Plus working out increases your metabolism and gives you energy. Yay! I'm actually excited to work out! After I work out I'm going to go meet with the coffee shop lady. Eeeek! I'm nervous! I'll write more about how it goes later!

Wish me luck!
