Look what I have been up to...

I have been playing around with Polymer clay. And boy have I been having fun. :) I just got a toaster oven yesterday so I can bake them. I first bought a small kit in Walmart to try it, I am now waiting on an order of more clay. :) I can't wait to get it.
I posted some example pics on my facebook page late last night to see if anyone would be interested in purchasing some Christmas ornaments, before I spent too much time and money on making something no one wanted. I am still shocked at the response I have gotten and still recieve to get. So as soon as my order of clay comes in I have to get cracking. :)
I haven't had to much time for blogging lately, which I do appologize for. I am trying to keep up with the blogs I follow, I am trying to take part in blog hops, because I really do love reading them.
I have to start buckling down and getting ready for the first ever blog hop that I am a part of, but knowing me I will leave it to the last minute and scramble trying to make something late the night before. I work better under pressure. :)
Well it is "hump" day, so I hope the rest of the week goes quickly for everyone, and you all have a great weekend.

P.S. Would love some feedback on my 1st couple of attempts working with clay. :)

I made it, and plan to do it again...

Well I made it through Zumba, and I am planning on going back. It was very hard and I thought I was going to pass out at times, but I made it through the whole session. I have to see my doc again really soon, because my  thyroid is still not under control, and it will wreck any chance I have to lose weight.
But on a crafty note... I will be taking part in my first ever blog hop. Yup you read it right I am going to be in a blog hop, it will be next month and it is going to be a quilling hop. So watch this blog for that. I am waiting to find out if there will be a button we can use, so if there is a button, it will be posted here. :)
Hope all my Canadian blogger friends have a Great Thanksgiving weekend. Turkey YUMMMY!!. :)
Have a great weekend everyone.

Prayer for me...

Please keep me in your prayers tonight... :) I may need it.
Notice the pic^^^^^^^^ Yup this is what I will be trying tonight, in half hour actually. I am excited to try it, this is the first time it has been in my little town, it was in the town next to me on Tuesday night, and rumor has it they got about 60 people show up. For this area that is A LOT of ppl.
My friend is loaning the PS3 Zumba to me as well, so hopefully I can get the hang of it.
I no longer have coordination. When I was in my teens (15-19) I was in line dancing, gymnastics as well when I was younger and figure skating. I had a lot of coordination, maybe I used it all up back then lol.
I really need to get some of this weight off. Hopefully this will be my way. And hopefully I won`t kill myself, or make to much of a fool of myself. lol
Have a good night everyone, and tomorrow is Friday!!! So enjoy your weekend as well. Oh and Happy Thanksgiving.
