The little crafter show: Mix media Monday.

   Crazy last week and the start of this one isn't getting less crazier. I talk  all about it in last weeks podcast. So let us talk about what is going on the little crafter show. Since the we have had some plumbing issues, working on making a  new journal was what I came up with. It will only be couple of days until the first journal for mix media Monday is done so this was perfect timing  if you ask me.
     It is very simple journal using supplies that already & I recycled a box for this project. You could make this project in so many different ways and use so many different supplies, The ideas are endless. I hope that you enjoys todays post. If you have any comments, questions please leave them down below or you can email me at Eileen@eileenthelittlecrafter. Thank you for stopping by & bye for now Eileen.

Supplies that used.

the covers I used a box. Cut to 5 by 10
For the pages I used mix media paper that I got from my local craft store, which I use 5 x 10

To cover the covers I used the same mix media paper I just cut 6 x 11 to wrap it around and using my scissors  cut the four corners so It will have less buck and wrap around the covers better.

To the cut the paper since it was not the size I needed I used my paper trimmer

I putted the holes for the book using my Cinch for the pages.

Since the covers seem to thick I used my big bite to punch in the rest of the holes for the binding.

For the binding I used a set I already had but you could google it, go to we are memory keepers site  or Bind it all

I used also double sided adhesives and creative station. I got mine from amazon.

A pen to mark the holes.

A new path.

I believed that when I started the down this road for better health that it so at the time what was best for me and for a time that it worked. The only problem was that I realized that my journey wasn’t just about my physical health it was about my mental health as well. I would not trade anything in for the help, the love and support that I got during my challenges. So thank you, everyone, for that.

     I am not a hundred percent where this new path is taking me, but I am feeling a lot more confident and focusing more on my inner self. I feel like I have made a significant improvement in my sessions. I do know that some months, weeks or even days are going to be better than others. I am learning to ride the waves, enjoy the journey and stop beating myself up. It started with looking at things that I wanted to change so clothing and makeup have played a massive part in this new mind swift.

     I know that some will say that those are just temporary fixes and your right. I …

While at the beach.

Yes, I am a plus size women at the beach. Yes, I am wearing a two-piece swimsuit to the beach. Yes, I am having a bit of trouble with my top, that I had to readjust it a few times, it is the beach, and these things happen.  So it the couple that kept looking at me that was very rude so much so that I smiled in your face. To older people made feel out of place, again I laughed and kept looking around the beach is so beautiful to look at.
    It is the beach for crying out loud, I won't stop going, stop smiling or wearing my swimsuit. It is brand new. I got it from torrid. Maybe a bigger size may have helped, but summer is almost over.  I know that I don’t have to explain where I go my suit at, getting a bigger size or even that summer is almost over. Maybe to help someone find a great swimsuit for next summer, avoid sizing issues and I don’t want summer to end.

       I have stuff like this happen to me all the time, with all my clothes. Doesn’t matter about the fit or the col…

Working out because you love your body.

Before I start this post would love to thank everyone that has been stopping by to read and give me your input on the blog post. So thank you for my Dia friends and sisters. You all are amazing.

   I am not a doctor, coach or worked for the health department in any way. I do highly suggest that you see your doctor before working out. Take it slow,  it is not about always about losing weight it. It about building your inner and outer strength.  You also may feel some stress relief as well and can improve in a lot of other areas of your life.

     Something that read which really blew my mind,  workout because you love your body. This has helped me a lot in finally enjoying the journey. I trying not bet myself if I miss a day and listen to my collection. I have been trying to not go by the numbers on the scale but how my clothes are fitting, and that has made me a lot happier.  I have also been doing a ketosis ish) diet, working out a few days, dance class once in a while.
