I'm Not The Know It All I Thought I Was

Ok, its been a little bit blogland!  I've been busy working on my girlish figure and daydreaming about the wedding dress I'm gonna wear next year.  You all know that I was on the Curves Complete program... welp, I finished my 12 week round, took a month off and JUST started another round.  I'm POSITIVE that this is the vehicle to get me to my goal and more importantly - keep me there.  Let me tell you why.  Let me share with you the greatest lesson I think I've ever learned (well, certainly, its in the top 5)! I spent eleven weeks of the twelve week program losing weight consistently.  Some weeks were better than others losing up to 4 pounds in a week other weeks weren't as good because, well, I'm a girl!  Guys have NO IDEA what we go through every single month and it REALLY ruins an entire week ESPECIALLY if you're getting on a scale.  But even with that, I lost EVERY week for 11 weeks.  Then, at my LAST weigh in at the end of my 12th week, I gained 2

Ok... so it has been A LONG time since I first posted my amazing and wonderful Scrap Closet Conversion .  A lot has changed as well.  Since I first converted a tiny closet into a craft space, my family has moved and I NOW have an entire room devoted to this wonderful hobby.  Furniture has been added and I've been able to expand quite a bit (check out my new craft table... thanx Cindy).  Sometimes that serves me, sometimes it doesn't.  I find that I need to be WAY MORE DILIGENT to keep my spaces clean and organized, more than I ever did in my beloved craft closet.  Unfortunately, when you spread out, so does the mess!!!  But I'm doing well with it and still employ a lot of the storage solutions I discovered way back when. Recently, my new friend from Idaho, Donna ,  asked me about MY storage solution ideas, so I thought I would share my favorites!!!  I'll start with the one that I'm personally challenged the most with... let's check out ribbon.
