Whoooo... whoooo... (that's an owl), A new desk... & Aïe je blesse (ouch I hurt)

***Don't forget about my giveaway! Here is the "Link" that will take you to that blog post. Make sure you leave a comment if you want to be in the drawing!!!***

So my wee little owls have been a big hit.
That's what I am hearing anyway. :) Good news, I love it! Ok, let's see, where to begin.

I posted this cute bag in my shop last night, have a look see. Isn't she super cute?
Update this morning... it's gone. SOLD!!! I better get working on some more of these today!Click on image to see it larger.
Here's a link to my shop: Sweet Me Designs

Now this little guy I created and am debating on selling these for scrapbooking, what do you think? Would you buy them?Click on image to see it larger.

And now for these... I have been dabbling with paints, colored pencils and watercolors. I just adore these little owls so much that I decided to create a couple prints.
Thinking about selling these too, what do you think? Would you buy these?

Now, on to the new desk...
I just happened to be checking out the tables and desks at Pottery Barn online and I said, oh I love this desk. Mike said... "oh what does it look like?" I showed him and he's gonna build one for me! :) Yupper... so I need to figure out my dimensions and then we can hit Lowe's for the building supplies. Weeeeeeeee I can't wait! It's this desk...

Aïe je blesse (ouch I hurt)...
I went to workout last night, my Mom couldn't go because she was out playing darts on a league. So my husband came with me as a guest. I had a goal in mind, I was going to warm up on the stair machine thingy... hit the weights (oh and I did), then the treadmill. Wanna know how it went down?That's me this morning saying "Aïe, ma poitrine ma poitrine. Ces condamner pèse m'a tué !"
Translates to "Ouch, my chest my chest. Those damn weights killed me!"

Yup, I did a quick little warm-up on that stair machine. Only 2 minutes, but man I busted it out in those two min. Then I went on to the weights just like the hotty trainer (oy, Bob Harper is freakin' HOT!) taught us. My husband kept trying to talk to me and I kept saying.... Shhhhh, I can't hear you I am busy and listening to my iPod. Yeah I turn that puppy up loud when I am there. It helps me stay focused. Love it! I think I need to create a "Bust it out" playlist on my iPod just for the gym. :) I made it through all the weights even though I had to clinch my teeth a few times. Who the heck do I think I am? She-Ra? I mean seriously, the first 2 sets were no prob. I hit the 3rd set and *BAM* Aïe la Maman (ouch mommy)! But I made it, I made it.

So off to the treadmill. Yeah baby, I rocked it! I did 2.1 miles (doesn't sound like much but I was poopered) starting at an incline of 1.5 and fast walk of 4mph. I did that for about 15 min. Then bumped it up to a run for 2 min, then walked again, then ran again, then walked again, then for the
last 1/10th of a mile I set it at 6.5mph and ran like the wind! Whew... I was tired! Did a little warm down on slow and I was done... cooked... finite! So this morning, I am one sore puppy! Not really everywhere, just in my chest from doing the free weight presses. Snaps! But it sure feels good!

Do you think I can move my tanning addiction over to working out? Bwahahahaha, heck no, who do you think I am? LOL

Ps... When you leave a comment can you please put your email address in the email address line? I love to write back, but I can't if I don't have your email. :) Thanks!!!
So, ALLISON wrote "I can't stop laughing...you are killing me here. I have been working out obssively for 16 yrs so I know it can get rather addictive. So, have you started doing squats or dead lifts? That will REALLY get the booty in tip top shape...if it doesn't kill you first...hehe. I am on my way now to do legs...damn it!" But I can't write you back! Wahhhhhh Not sure which Allison you are. BUT, oh no, no squats or dead lifts yet. LOL But I will get
there! :) Thanks!

your too funny, Wendy! i've recently gotten a treadmill and have been workin' my booty off twice daily. i guess i should get our bowflex dusted off and use that thingy too...my chest could use it. haha! your owl's are too cute and i'm sure you would have NO trouble selling them. i wish my daughter would let me decorate her room. :) keep up the creative process and the physical one as well.

Oh hey when you figure out those dimensions, could you share them with me? Target has something really similar too, but it comes in three parts. The top and then the two storage shelves. I think it comes out to like $600! So yeah. Great space by the way and that owl bag ROCKS!!

That owl would be cute on scrapbook pages. I also think it would be cute framed in a little girls room.

owls are cute!

So can an old lady start working out and look like a 20 year old in a few weeks? Can you ask your trainer this. If so, I'm gonna start right away!
