There's a first time for everything...

Well, here I am...Blogging. Wow! Who knew I too would get caught up in yet another phenomenon that's taking the world by storm. I'm blaming this one on my girlfriends from ACP, or A Charming Place. Yep-it's all their fault. You see, THEY snared me first...I found them quite accidentally one night long ago when looking for something to do with scrapbooking, and there it was. Primarily, it's a store selling wonderful shiny trinkets known as charms to be used as embellishments on ANY of your favorite PAPERCRAFTS. It's also a forum/message board for scrapbookers/papercrafters. Don't ask me what I was REALLY looking for on that night so long ago...I can't remember...but what I found...WOW! Not only did I find the beautifuly shiny little charms for my scrapbooking projects, before I even knew what to do with them mind you, but I found FRIENDS! This talented and friendly group of ladies won me over hook line and sinker-they could't get rid of me now even if they wanted to-LOL!

So anyway, a little over a year ago some of them started PROJECT 365-which some of you will know is a photography project to take a picture a day for a year. You try different settings, techniques etc. as you go on and they were blogging their results. So it began. Some of those kept with it and evolved it to their lives, specifics of scrapbooking projects they've made. One of them is a gifted papercrafter that teaches classes, etc. so she has hers geared mostly towards her current projects and classes. Another, is on at least one or more design teams and shows off her scrappy projects, and yet another is working on a special diet, her garden, her love of live and papercrafting and so that is her theme etc. So you see??? Blame THEM I say!

So I hope you enjoy my blog as I post some of my scrapbook projects, ramble on about whatever's on my mind on a given day, read about my girlfriends, and suffer along with me as I try to lose a few pounds. Ok, so it's more than a few. I didn't get here over night, so this will likely take a little time. I have the good fortune of having a Weight Watchers Program at my work and I'm going to the new group starting up on Thursday, April 2n'd to see what it's gonna take. I signed up for the on-line Weight Watchers a week or so ago, but discovered I need the meetings to get more ideas and help with meal planning, etc. They do have a week long trial offer on-line if you're interested in checking it out. I cancelled mine within the time frame alowwed so I could seek out the more personal process that I can clearly see I need. I've been trying to watch what I've eaten all along, but had some bad days. I'll go to the meeting during my lunch this thursday-and see if this is going to get me the start I need. Everyone cross your fingers for me!!
