Quick Post







I can't believe that Friday is almost here! It's the big event that I've been planning for the last few months. I also can't believe how many hours/days/weeks it takes to cut card stock for (4) projects for 200 people! Thanks to Diana Gibbs, Donna Moore, and Lori Hatton for helping. They're amazing. Diana designed three of the projects and Lori designed the 4th.

I can't wait to see (200) friends tomorrow evening. We're going to have a wonderful time ... great food, fabulous company, fantastic stamping, super duper swaps, and some special guests.













Tah Dah ... my one year surgery pictures. Amazing, don't you think? Such a drastic difference. Never thought I was that heavy. Oh well ... I certainly was kidding myself. I feel 'free' and so great!

Got to get to work ... later!

Linda you look fabulous. Congratulations to you. What a difference a year can make. I have heard that your gala was a super hit and totally awesome. I am only sorry that I was unable to attend convention this year - because it meant not attending your event. I heard Jaron was there. You two are special people. May God bless you 100 fold for all you have done for so many demonstrators and paper craft lovers.

Congratulations of your journey this past year - you have definitely come out on top!
Love
Annette

Weight lose surgery is a tuff road but so worth the results. I myself under went surgery in sept 2008 and by June 2009 I had lost 105 pounds. Pilates & kettle bell workout have helped with the lose skin. Life as size 8 is wonderful!! Keep up the hard work and most of enjoy the "skinny" life.

Linda, you look awesome! I am so glad you shared these pictures with us. I have lost 80 lbs in the last year or so and when I look in the mirror, I look older. How in the world are you looking so young and fabulous? I need to know your secret.

I so wish I could have gone to convention this year, it looks like you all had a fantastic time.

hugs,

Carolyn
