Welcome to my blog

If you enjoy finding a lot of different outlets for your creativity, then we may just be kindred spirits.
This blog is an outlet for my interest in miniatures, crochet, plastic canvas, and many other various arts and crafts.

I also love walking, taking digital photos, and most recently, have rediscovered an old love...bike riding! I purchased an amazing new bike, a comfy Townie by Electra this summer, and have been having a grand time exploring the area as though for the first time. It's like being a kid again!

If you enjoy any of these things too, pour a cup of coffee and tea, sit down, and join me.


Take care!

52nd Birthday vs 53rd Birthday; What a Difference a Year Makes!

Hi guys,
I have lost 90.8 Lbs since I started my weight loss journey on January 11th of this year.
Yesterday was my birthday, and I wanted to compare photos of last year's birthday with this years, to see the difference.

Here's a side by side showing my Dad and I, last year (on left) vs. this year (on right).  I was way bigger than my Dad, and now I'm smaller.

 The next photo is of me and my Mom.  I was enormous next to her last year; my head was way bigger than hers, never mind my body.  This year I'm only a little bigger (she wears a Ladies size medium and I'm in a Large or XL, depending on the style).  Last year I was wearing a size 5X men's T'shirt.

This last photo makes me sad, as my beautiful fur babies, Mac (black standard poodle) and Benji (white toy poodle) are no longer with me.  I miss my boys very much, but I don't miss the extra almost 91 Lbs I used to carry around.  Mac weighed 70 Lbs and Ben only 8; I've lost more weight than both dogs combined.  
RIP baby boys; Mommy misses you and loves you.

If you want to make your own faux cake out of Watermelon, here's a link to a blog for a beautiful looking watermelon cake...much prettier than mine.watermelon cake recipe  I was short of time and not very skilled at cutting it into a cake shape, lol.  Also, we had no small berries for decoration.
