Well I got back on my horse today and made my first card of 2013. I feel like it was my first one ever. I'm glad I did. It's like breaking a really long bad streak and finally breaking free.. ok, bit on the dramatic side. Let's just say it's been too long and move on from there shall we.
As usual, for my first inspiration jolt I turn to Paper Smooches Stamps. I find their stamps always brighten my mood, even if I'm creating a card about feeling under the weather.
So I thought I'd link up my card to this current challenge on the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge Blog. It was a photo inspiration challenge based on this photo..
Here is what I did with it..
now, on to a few other things:
I'd be flat out lying if I said I was doing ok. I'm not. I'm grieving Little Miss Stella like it's nobody's business, which it isn't really, because frankly I'm feeling quite judged by it. Reality Check - Mike and I did not have kids, and for the past 14 years she was my baby. It's bad enough I lost Tucker a year and a half ago, but now losing Stella in November, it's just about killed me.
Here is the last picture I got to take of her. I took it a few hours before we had to take her to the vet.
Grieving sucks. It hurts and I hate it. But this Sunday is one day less I'll have to go through it. Maybe tomorrow will be a bit easier.
I lost a total of 9.5 lbs this month. I wanted it to be 10 but I'm not going to get super hung up on it. It means I have about 59 to go for my December 31st goal which will complete Phase 1 of my taking over the world with my total awesomeness. Next year will be part 2. I'll worry about that part this time next year. For now, I'm pretty over due on my blog post on Coup de Gras.
So that's where this crazy mind is at.
PS. I think I'm losing it. I'm starting to put Milk in the cupboard and cheese in the freezer. I think there might be something wrong.
Better gets some shut eye.
Love to who ever reads this damn thing still.
