Weight Watchers and Some Great Recipes

I have been doing Weight Watchers for about 6 weeks now. Decided after 4 years it was time to get the baby weight off, right? To date I have lost 12.6 pounds. Hey, those .6 are very important!

Anyway, I’m the type of person that will eat the same thing everyday if it means the program will work for me. My family, not so much. So I have been searching for recipes ever since.

I came across the most wonderful website! I am in no way affiliated with this site, I just LOVE IT! (I wish I was though, she’s genius with her recipes)

The website is http://www.skinnytaste.com/ and I just wanted to share some of my favs, so far. I’m sure there will be more.

Crock Pot Chicken Taco Chili

I have been making this Chili for the last few weeks as my make ahead lunch. Its perfect with some baked Tostitos Scoops for a great lunch. I just portion it out and freeze it in little containers. Pop it in the microwave for a few minutes and I have a wonderful lunch.

004

Skinny Meatloaf Cupcakes with Mashed Potato Frosting

Made these last night for dinner. Yummy! And there are plenty left over to, again, freeze and have for dinner another night. Very tasty.

005

Pumpkin Swirl Cheesecake Yogurt Cupcakes

These are fantastic. There is a link in the recipe for her Pumpkin Butter which I also made first. Then the cheesecakes. YUMMY! Wonderful dessert and not too high on sugar (compared to other low fat desserts) which was perfect for me and my dad, who is diabetic. Delish!

Even if you aren’t on the Weight Watchers program, check out the recipes. There are TONS! And they are healthy and all look delicious.

Let me know if you are doing a weight loss program. Its great to see the progress. Yippee!

Don’t forget to enter my 2 contest going on right now. One is Here and the other Here.

Shutterfly 2011 Holiday Card Giveaway & CONTEST

I love Shutterfly, I must say. Last year I made some great picture books of my son for his relatives that live far away. They loved them so much. It was a great way to showcase “ A Year In The Life” for all the relatives that do not get to see my son very often.

I also used Shutterfly for my Christmas cards last year. These were the cards I ended up going with:

Everyone loved them. They are folded cards and printed on very sturdy card stock. No flimsy cards here! I was able to personalize the inside with different things my son had done throughout the year. It was awesome!

All of Shutterfly’s new folded cards can be seen HERE.

I specifically have my eye on :

berrymerryframe

Seen here.

heartsand home

Seen here.

loveholidayjoy

Seen here.

Mainly because I already have my photo picked out for Holiday cards this year, so I am leaning more towards the ones that just have one picture on the front. However, there will be more opportunities for pictures soon, so I may have more photos to add. I also like that there have been a few things that I would like to share inside the card, and the layouts all allow me to do that. Mini newsletter without writing out an entire newsletter. Awesome!

They also have gift you can make seen here.

I really like this necklace. It would make a great grandmother’s gift:

Faux Cupcake Christmas Ornaments & A CONTEST

Hi! Long time no chat – AGAIN! I apologize for that. Sometimes life takes over and other things have to take priority. I do miss blogging though, so I will really try to make a better effort to blog more often.

I often find myself doing projects and later thinking, “I could have blogged about that”. I sometimes wonder if its something anyone would want to read about, then later realize, yes, you probably would! So I’m going to take pictures of everything (more than I do now, which is A LOT) and show you guys.

In the meantime, I’ll show you what I have been doing. There is a Holiday Craft Faire coming to my neighborhood next month. I have been waiting for something like this to hit the area so I could get a booth and create something. I immediately signed up and then couldn’t figure out what to make! LOL. I knew it had to be cupcake related, because of all the baking I have been doing. I’m become a little cupcake obsessed. It took about 4 weeks, but I ended up with these:

buildyourown

chocolategoodlimitededitionlimitededition2silverfoil2popsilverfoil3pop

As you can see there is a watermark on a few because I decided to open an Etsy store which you can see HERE. 

I’m very excited about this. I have been in touch with some retailers about putting a few in their shop.

Now for the contest!

My contest is simple….I would like to offer 2 of my readers a Faux Cupcake Ornament. These are made to order, so the 2 winners will be able to choose exactly how they want their cupcake to look, from the choices I provide. Each person will have multiple entries, here they are:

For the first entry: please go to our new KamNCo Facebook page and LIKE us HERE. (You don’t have to comment, but I would be overjoyed if you did.) Then please come back and comment that you did, pretty please with a cherry on top Smile

For the second entry: please head on over to the shop HERE and let me know what style you like, from what I have listed. Then please come back and comment letting me know what style you would build.

For the third entry: I would be extremely honored if you were to let your friends know about the contest. Whether it be on your blog, Facebook, or Twitter, I would super sincerely appreciate it. Then come back and let me know that you did.

That’s it! Contest runs today, October 14th thru Monday October 24th at 10:00 pm Pacific. I will announce the winners on Tuesday October 25th, both here and on Facebook.

Stay tuned as I am building a few different cupcake stands for the Craft Faire that is coming up and will share them with you, step by step Smile



Once things get going on Facebook, I'll be running Facebook only contests as well. I'll keep you posted!

What I've Been Up To

Hello to all my bloggy friends! I have...again...not been around much. I have been quilting and I should have been posting about it. But I seem to forget to take tons of pictures because I get so excited about what I am doing. So here are a few pictures of some quilt tops that I have done. They still need to be quilted and will be soon.

This first one is my favorite. All of these are made using the Jelly Roll 1600 pattern, but this first one I added some squares between the strips, along with borders and some charm squares.






I am making a few quilts as Christmas presents. So I will be posting as they get completed. Also soon, I will be redoing my sewing table and making it more into a quilting friendly table and will post about that.

There is also a craft fair coming up in November where I live. I'm so excited to be participating. I will post the crafts I am working on for that, as well.

Comment and let me know what you have been up to!
