Feeling a bit out of it...

Good Afternoon.. i don't know what my problem is, but I'm kinda grumpy and just plain antisocial today.. I've been feeling a bit down lately about my weight and the struggles I've been having.. every time I diet, I swear, i gain more and just end up being someplace that I don't want to be.. emotionally.. I beat myself up daily about my weakness and inability to get my act together.. i'm smarter than this.. i need an attitude adjustment...

sorry to ramble about that.. it's just something always on my mind.. Ugh!!!

so.. on to a more scrappier note.. =) I do have the best friends ever and was able to spend time with them yesterday.. I had a long day at work and it was nice to meet up and be with my best support system.. and cropping is an extra bonus. =) i must have been in somewhat of an artistic funk yesterday as well, because things weren't working well and didn't come together just right.. but I still was able to finish a 1 page layout.. and worked on a few pages that have been lingering around for months.. do you have those layouts.. something you started a long time ago.. but you don't finish.. for whatever reason.. not the right embellie, or you're just not feeling it..??? I have a few of those and I completed a 2 pager last night and started working on another one of my DH playing guitar.. i think on that one, it's the paper i'm using.. I'm struggling to work outside the box..

here is the one layout I will show you.. it's of my great niece with my brother's dog.. they are so cute.. I used some of the Coredinations Whitewash paper as my background paper, crinkled it up, sanded it, and used some of my Fancy Pants Kraft papers. I used a Sketch from 52 sketches to guide me..

I did get my Unity stamps in the mail the other day.. I'm so excited. they are so cute.. I can't wait to try them. Here is what I got.. and I should be getting my March and April Kit of the Month anyday now..

Well, it's a nice day out.. I should get moving around and do something productive... maybe some yard work.. or spring cleaning inside.. Hmm... I do hope to create something later..

Here is a fun photo I took for my 365 pic yesterday. I had to be in West Branch for work and we stopped at McDonald's. Well, in all my years, I've never seen one of these... =) it was too cute to pass up..

Have a great Saturday.... =)

  2. Hi Theresa, sorry to hear you have been feeling down a bit. I think I know a bit how you feel, I've been struggling with my weight for as long as I can remember. Lately I've been trying to accept the fact that I'm never going to be any thinner than this, but it's a slow process. Every once in a while, I decide to go on a diet, but mostly I just try to be happy with the way I look and like me the way I am. Like you, I've tried many diets, but I'm just to weak to keep it up. I've finally thrown away all the clothes I had been saving just in case I might ever fit in them again (hah!) and that has been great therapy!

    I love your LO, the stitching is so pretty and adds so much to the page, I like it!
