Wii Fit

I've been looking for a WiiFit for about 6 months now - they're continually out of stock in most stores I checked, or the price was double what it should be and double on internet sites too! I finally found one this weekend - and finally got it out and hooked up Sunday night.

It says I'm not fit, ok no great news flash there, I knew that, that's why I bought the darn thing! But it also says I am totally out of balance and wonders if I fall a lot or do I use a walker or a cane - ok, now that's going just a bit too far! I've come to the conclusion that it's not as much a matter of being fit (I do need to work on that) as it is a matter of not being coordinated! I've NEVER been coordinated, I'm the kid that used to fall off the tricycle! Think about that one!
Yes, I did learn to ride a regular bike without training wheels without too much difficulty.

I was also so un-coordinated as a child my parents put me in ballet school to try and help - I think it did, plus it was fun! My eye hand coordination is pretty good, but the left foot, right foot, back forward thing - still isnt' what it should be. I can stand on one foot with no problem, but trying to maneuver my feet and legs into different positions at the same time - well, maybe I do need a cane!

Let's see how this goes for a few days- oh, I did do the ski Slalom and got to the Advanced level on my 2nd try - now does that sound like I'm out of balance?

If it's Monday - it must be Christmas!

I think I need to quit taking things so literally. I see the sketch, and I do it exactly, and I mean exactly as shown. I think I need to challenge myself to think a little more outside the box! I do that in everything else, why not with these? I guess it's just my nature to follow the rules exactly! I think I need to give myself a break! In any event, here's my card for this week's sketch!

My favorite -Tilda for St. Patrick's Day

I made several St Patrick's Day cards, and this turned out to be my favorite, though the Chelly from Paper Makeup Stamps came in a very close 2nd.

Christmas Monday - no card!

This week's challenge just didn't click with me - I sat for hours trying to come up with something, but it just never manifested itself!

But be sure to check out the other Christmas cards from the Divas on the left!

Kitty Cat Friday

Since it's Friday the 13th, I should have made a scary kitty, but I liked this one better for today!

Colored with Copics! Paper is from SEI.

St Patrick's Day Cards

I've got some St Patrick's Day cards ready to go into the mail, so I'll post a few before posting my favorite Next Tuesday! I'll start with Stella Bella! It's amazing what some green and gold can turn an regular stamp into!

It's Christmas Monday again!

This week's challenge was to create your own layout - definitely not my strong suit, but I gave it the old college try! The image and sentiment are both from A Muse, everything else is just stuff I had around!

Birthday Card

Just a nice simple birthday card. Added the hummingbird with a couple of popups for dimension, the rest of it is just from the scrap pile - honest!

Christmas Monday

In addition to the Sketch Challenge, we had to use eyelets on our cards this week - this was mine!
