WHERE does the time go?!!

Is it just me or do the days just seem to blaze by in a blur?!  {say that 10 times fast!}  I either need to get it together or something because I miss my little bloggie!!!

Okay, first things first:  How's the weight loss challenge going for all of  you?!  I'm not having you report your numbers to me because I think the secrecy gives you advantage in this short of a challenge.  I will say that I've only lost 5 lbs., but since being on my thyroid meds and this whole 'get skinny' challenge, I've lost a total of 11 lbs.  YAY for me!  (...now only 40 more to go... haha.)  Kadie and I are going strong starting tomorrow, though, so look out.

Secondly:  IT'S CHRISTMAS DECOR TIME!!!  {squeal!} Tomorrow I get to dig out all of my yummy, festive fun stuff, plug in my fave Christmas tunes, and decorate.  Okay, let's be honest.  With the exception of my amazing advent tree, my decorations are crap and I'm looking into updating my old stuff - but I'll put up what I have and try to make some newer additions...

...LIKE THESE!  I've been working on some (and ruining others with spray snow-don't buy that stuff), but I hope to have a little mini-forest of trees soon.  {eek!} love these!!! Get the pattern here at Allsorts.  Mine have some hand beading and I love it. I can't wait to show you all of my creations!!!

Oh good, glad to hear from you...didn't know if I was supposed to be reporting weight numbers or not.

The "A Team" is doing the "slowly, but surely" method. :)

I'm making some new tree decorations as well, but using jute twine, cones and "Stiffy". Have you seen them around the blog world? I think they're going to be cute..in a rustic kind of way. :)

Adorable trees! I wonder if it would be something children could do over Christmas vacation??? Maybe I will try one first?

Good for you on your weight loss. I've only lost 2 but thanks to my husband, we are at a total of 9.

I love your little trees. I just hope to be able to make a stocking for our newest family member this year. All crafting is on the back burner because like you said, it's all going by in a blur!

Those are adorable! Thanks for the inspiration and good job on your weight loss! 11 lbs. - that's impressive!

I LOVE the felt tree idea! I have some heirloom ceramic decorations that I try to put up but my two girls get into everything so I've really had to minimize our decorations this year. It's such a bummer! But these trees would be perfect because I wouldn't mind if they got into them! THANK YOU!!!

I wish you luck in losing weight. I have been trying to lose my birth fat for year now and honestly it's the pits but I just keep chugging along hoping that eventually I'll miraculously lose it. :) (my problem is the eating though so now that I've got the exercising underway and into a good habit, I need to really cut back on the eating.) Good luck!
