I made a lampshade the other night. I found these large brass rings at Hobby Lobby and knew I could somehow figure out how to make a drum shade- for some reason they are VERY hard to find. I couldnt find any fabric I liked- so I went to Ross (which is like the tjmaxx for the tjmaxx- final prices) and found a sheet set in a gray and white hollywood regency pattern. 10 bucks! And lots of fabric for me to use many ways. I will have to post a picture of the shade once I hang it- using just posterboard and hot glue it looks completely professional :)

I am on my way to a healthier lifestyle. I have been overweight all of my life- so this is a huge step for me. Counting calories and working out and it feels so good. Last night I did 20 minutes at level resistance 4 on the elliptical and then my husband and I went for a run/jog/walk for another half hour. Very proud of myself. And I am making healthier meals that taste good- and making better choices. How do you make a lowfat cupcake?!?!
