No, I am not recycling my posts. That is something I hope never to do.  Instead, we recycle paper, cardboard, plastic, glass and cans. DH and I make a weekly trip to one of the recycling centers here in town. We discovered these after we moved to Tennessee. It was a great way to dispose of all those boxes from the moves. Yes, moves. First we moved 600 miles from Michigan to Tennessee. Then we moved one and a half miles from the rental condo to the house we had built. That may have been the harder move since the city was repaving and widening the one street we had to travel to get into our house. And every day was different.

This week's trip was probably the nicest, brightest day we had all week. One of the local restaurants was there recycling boxes and the young man was actually in the dumpster jumping up and down trying to compress the boxes. I tried to get a picture but it was right into the sun, so instead got this shot!

The paper and embellishments are done with  Saxon Holt's "Bee Scrappy" kit. I love it.

Project 52-3 Being Productive

The kit is by Saxon Holt and is called "Bee Scrappy!" It's very cute.

Today I was very productive. I made 4 more cards - yes I am on a card kick. My census project is moving along.  And I scrapped two pages. In scrapbooking, scrapping pages is a good thing!

Project 52-3 It's ALL About Me!

Those of you who follow my blogs know that I was diagnosed with diabetes last June. Talk about a lifestyle change. Anyway, I found a picture from last year and I took one this morning for comparison. The one thing I don't like is that my office lighting makes my hair look red. Usually fluorescent lighting makes my hair look green!  Yes, I've dropped over 40 pounds and it is starting to show. The hair cut is the same even though I am wearing it a little different in an attempt to let it grow out.

Project 52 - Week 3: My Memories

Yes, I can be sarcastic. And silly. For the most part, I do not add buttons to scrapbook pages. Sometimes to cards.  Yesterday I sorted through my button collection - I started collecting the buttons that come with new clothes, etc. Most are pretty plain, but they are pretty interesting nonetheless. Hence this page.
