I have started this blog to help me get my craft projects out for everyone to see. My crafts are my therapy. I find peace in creating special ideas for friends and family. This is a new adventure for me and I plan on enjoying the ride

Art Journal

Well everybody has been asking what I have been up to lately.  I've been taking some time for myself and decided it was about time I made something for  myself.  So what to make?  I kept getting drawn to making an art journal.  I kept looking at ideas and came to the conclusion that I didn't think I could do it because I cannot draw, not even a stick figure.  But the more I checked out the journal ideas the more I saw the whole idea behind making an art journal is to make it your own.  With a little advice from my friend Prissy I jumped in and have started my journal.  My idea behind making this journal came from when I joined Weight Watchers back in January.  I wanted something to keep me motivated.  I can't wait to get to the page where I get to mark down that I've lost 15lbs so far.  I have family and friends who are also doing the program with me and I hope they see they each will have a special place in this journal because it's a new journey for all of us.   I'm really excited how it is all coming together.  I'm pulling from all elements from paper, to metal, to stamps, paints, stains, chipboard, and cardboard.  It's been very entertaining and also some great therapy.  I can't wait to start journaling in it.  I have many more pages to make so I can't wait to show you more...stay tuned.

AWESOME! Idea! I love it.....if you have the pages marked with 5%, 10% 25lbs.....then you have another way of motivating yourself to get to that point! I love love love WW and think the program is awesome! Good luck! I got "really" back on program in October and I've lost almost 10 lbs since July.....I'm about 7 lbs away from pre-pregnancy weight! GOOD LUCK on your journey!
