CONFESSIONS OF A SCRAPAHOLIC

…IT’LL BE OUR LITTLE SECRET…

An award for ME!

Posted by Catherine on June 25, 2009

…for being the crappiest DT Leader EVAH!

*hides face* Eeek!

Okay, catching up a little…my best friend got married last Saturday and I was the Matron (ugh, I hate that word, sounds older and less attractive than being called a maid!) of Honour.  You can probably get an idea of the amount of work a matron of  honour has in relation with wedding planning…on top of that, my mom and I were also doing the flowers for the wedding!  So as if that wasn’t enough work, the dresses were being made using a dress pattern that the bride fell in love with and GUESS FREAKIN’ WHAT?!  The pattern was TOO SMALL for me!

So besides doing the flowers and helping out with other wedding-ish duties, I had to make sure that chubster me FIT IN THAT DRESS!  I threw myself into that whole lifestyle change and was able to drop 10 pounds and lots of inches – enough to get me into the dress! *LOL*  It was probably the hardest I’d ever worked at dropping any kind of weight…from waking up at 6 am to either go out for a run or workout using DVD’s (I have TONS now!) and then coming home from work, changing into my workout clothes and then heading to the gym to take a cardio class EVERY DAY! Ugh.  Needless to say, with that much stuff going on, my craft room and my WONDERFUL PDD Design Team (and the fearless leader of it all, Marti!) got way, way neglected!

The only thing that I can say is SORRY for being so craptastically MIA and that hopefully you will all forgive me because I looked pretty freakin’ fabulous in the dress! *LOL*

Here’s me feeling pretty famous with my own umbrella holder and the paparazzi after me! *LOL*  Doing a little dress adjusting, but otherwise ready to strut my 10 pounds lighter self down that aisle!

Anywho, enough about all that silliness!  The very next day after the wedding, while The Mister was completely hungover and sleeping it off, I ordered a medium pizza from Pizza Hut and ATE IT ALL!  I also went ahead and chopped off all my hair that I’d been keeping long for the wedding!  Feels SO good, lemme tell ya!

On other crafty news, I’m trying to catch up with what I’ve missed – but when you’ve got Marti for a boss, can you REALLY ever catch up with her?!  That woman comes up with brilliant ideas even while she SLEEPS for crying out loud!  But while I was gone, the world of crafty-ness kept revolving and Marti cranked out THESE babies:

Baby Blue

Crystal Ice

Chocolate Drops

Grass Green

Orange Burst

Princess Pink

 These little baubles are custom made to MATCH the exclusive PDD stamp sets!  How cool is that?!  Waaaay cool?  More like ICE COLD!  THAT’S how cool it is!

I definitely have to get back up to speed and lock myself in my craft room so that I can get some posts up here!!!  I know I keep saying that I’m back and then I go and disappear again, but I just turned down a flower request because there will be NO MORE WEDDINGS for us this year!!!  For my sanity, this year is DONE!  I mean it this time!!!

Now what’re you sitting around there reading me blather on and on? GO CHECK OUT THOSE SKITTLES!!!
