I have just not been feeling great lately, and no I am not pregnant...don’t even go there folks! We had a party at our house the weekend before Easter and maybe I just did too much and didn’t get enough sleep, but the last few days I have just been feeling yucky. My stomach is rumbling and nothing tastes good. Matty is feeling it too..she got sick in the middle of church Easter Sunday. She didn’t throw up but she started looking green and queasy and fresh air didn’t help so we packed up and were out of there before communion, unfortunately. Not the best way to celebrate the rising of our savior, but they give special considerations to mother’s of young children, don’t they???

Matty didn’t have much candy that morning, we only let them have two pieces before breakfast but who knows, maybe we all have a little bug. Yucky, yucky, yucky though!

On a more positive note, I have lost 5.6 pounds since our “Biggest Loser” Contest started. Can you believe I did not eat a piece of chocolate on Easter? Willpower, baby! But I did make and eat homemade pizza for dinner on Easter Sunday. Sad isn’t it? But I just didn’t have the time nor the stamina for the whole big meal thing..not too mention the calories…so pizza and salad it was!

I haven’t even wanted to stamp lately so you know something really must be wrong with me! I did make a banner for the party that I will share with you….I love my big shot can do so much with it!

For this I cut the pennants out, and then glued cardstock to some cardboard and used the big shot to cut out my letters to make them thicker. Then I used crystal effects and chunky clear glitter to make them all sparkly and used some sticky hearts I had with the chunky glitter. It was very soft and sparkly all at the same time. Believe it or not I made this in 30 minutes the morning of the party. I added a few punched butterflies and voila! Instant Banner!

More soon when the yuckiness passes!

Ciao for now! Deidre
