Jazzercise & Valentines

Jazzercise it is girls, I need to get this flabby fat body into shape LOL. I have a long ways to go and have gone down this path several times in my life so don't know if things will shrink  back into place any more LOL. I am not working toward a small body just need to exercise a little. Since I have been diagnosed with type two diabetes I have to eat different so need something to occupy my time more.
 Usually I would go home from work and cook me up a great meal them some dessert. Which I am having a hard time not doing. I miss my sweets a lot. I am not a person who can't  do anything in moderation . So it's best not to have them around me. I always cooked a lot on the week ends also

I was watching TV last night where Joan Rivers was having another face procedure done OMG. I don't think I will ever go under the knife to look better. I have had to go under the knife for surgery but for things like shoulder surgery where I fell in my garage and did a dive like I was diving into a pool , I was so mad because I fell and then really mad when the Doctor said I tore my rotor cuff and would have to have surgery. i like to keep on the go and I was not going anywhere for a while after that. plus 3 months therapy.Then there was back surgery once for a bulging disk where I missed a step going into the studio and landed on my butt I was wearing socks only  on wood steps , beware of doing that
I hate when I can't be on the go

Now to show something besides a vision in your mind of me doing jazzercise. It's really fun and since I am not self conscience about how I look around all the young hotties I had fun.  (loved it)

Now I have been lazy about working on my valentines also and I have drawers of paper and hearts to make the entire city a valentine I do believe. LOl

I know you have all seen this pretty tin before . It has been around for a few years I have seen other ladies have it on their blogs

  Then this one is a fan that I have had a few years


I have this purple beaded heart laying in a small suit case of old vintage lace  that I have also had a few years

     Then my little Marie Antoinette couple this is a small lamp and I usually just have then setting on a shelf with other similar figures

    Thanks for stopping by I stayed home tonight i guess to rest LoL but it's back to jazzercise tomorrow they had a special for $18.00  18 classes so I just had to try it out, like I said my doctor said I need to exercise more  and I need to have fun , girls just want to have fun

Silver Chest

I am working on my project list since the start of this new year and getting this chest ready for use was on my list so my list is down 2 projects now

I bought this wonderful french provincial chest at a indoor  flea market back last summer . It was in great shape and a heavy chest however it was scuffed up where someone had used a packing tape or duct tape probably while moving . Anyway I thought I have some great silver paint and will touch it up.
This paint I have goes on better than any paint I have ever bought so went over the entire chest. You can see here the tape marks and also I changed the top drawer pull or a more ornate one. Also the chest was $30.
You can see where the tape was

        before with streaks

        This is the drawer pull I used  for the top drawer since there was only 3 matching pulls

This is the paint I used I bought it at a local paint store and love it . It was $38. a quart and goes on like soft butter  and never streaks also drys very quick

                     Love it

I will use it in the studio, more than likely will have it full of card stock material, I have 2 large plastic tubs of valentine card making supplies that will fill these drawers
If it was not already painted silver I would have painted it white to match all my other chests in the studio

OK on to my next project now and I want to say Thank you for following my projects as I go through them

also is anyone besides me having trouble leaving comments on certain blogs? some blogs I can't even pull up? maybe blogger is having trouble again?

Pink Saturday

I always forget Pink Saturday At How Sweet The Sound , but today I remembered.

I have had this project going on for about 3 years now LOl
This year I said self, we are staying home more and playing in the studio and finishing projects that are started or just thought about starting

I bought 2 palcemats at Target and already had the bag handles from an old bag my sister made me back in the 80's( OMG) way back then we was doing projects LOL

I am just using fabric glue and putting them together , at the time I had a cute summer outfit that almost matched this material


Also since we are having a very mild winter , yesterday it was 66 here, I am thinking about my flower beds already

well I am still taking down Christmas stuff, so tired of it now. I am not doing all this next year LOL

My daughter and I drove over to Tulsa last year after I got tickets for the first time . You go on line and apply about 6 months before the show then 3 weeks before the show I got tickets in the mail
