Show Me Thursday #51

I am obviously playing the last minute nosey around Show Me Thursday Challenge over at Sassy Cheryl's Blog. You know the one, where you post a picture or few of what you've got going on for the chance of winning a free image from the Sassy Cheryls Store.

I can honestly say that the reason I haven't posted isn't because I don't have anything going on, but the exact opposite. Trying to fit crafting time around all the activities of this week has proved almost impossible. I do however have some pictures to share with you. When we first built TazMania, we put a single track of track lighting over the desk and over my sewing area. It left some dark areas to me, so Sunday morning DH and I proceeded to add an additional track to each of them. It was not a fun experience, and I really wish I could have done it myself, but I needed an extra hand. Thankfully it's done and I'm loving all the extra light over my Black Cat Cougar on my tall table, as will my neighbor since I've also lit up her tables along the wall. Here are the pictures of the extra lighting.

Monday was a  full day of Weight Watchers with first having to lead a meeting and then having to attend a certification class. My DH says I had to get certified to work for free, and he's not far off. However, I'm  doing it to keep me on track rather than the money, and it at least pays my gas to go to a meeting.  I also think you have to practice what you preach.

My sister who lives 60 miles north of me is on vacation this week, and she likes crafting as much as me. So yesterday, I drove to Tupelo and spent the day with her, her daughter and her grandson. We hit Hobby Lobby, JoAnn's, Sam's and Walmart. We also ate a Newks, just so I could have 1/2 of a toasted Pimento and Cheese sandwich(it was worth every single WW point).  Since most of what I bought was from the Christmas decorations for small trees for embellies, and they were 50% off, I didn't get to REALLY make use of my 40% off coupons. Here's a picture of my stash from yesterday's shopping adventure(please be sure to notice the paper mess immediately to the right of my stash).

Now I'm got to get in cooking mode and start doing some prep work for the one dish I have to take to my neighbor's for T'giving and for the dishes I have to prepare for a Family Dinner for DH's family on Friday night.

May you all have a blessed day tomorrow whether you're celebrating Thanksgiving or not. I am so thankful each and every day for the friends I've made in the crafting world and want each of you to know you hold a special place in my heart.


  1. Wow! I know that you've been so busy, but reading it all in one place kind of makes me tired. Love the track lighting. Every time I hear about track lighting I think of Steel Magnolia. Have you seen that movie. Remember. . . .when they were in the hair salon. SO FUNNY!
    It looks great and I know that you will be enjoying it for a long, long time! I know you're glad it's done.
    What great ornaments you got too! You lucky thing!!!!
    Thanks for sharing in the Sassy Cheryl's SMThursday fun this week.
