The little crafter show: Mix media Monday.

     Wow the weekend is done and it is the last Monday of July, time is surly flying. I hope that you weekend was great and that start of this week is amazing.

    As you may or may not know I am Eileen aka Eileen the little crafter and I have show on you tube called the little crafter show. For a couple of months on Mondays I have come up with weekly show called Mix media Monday. I started out working on a 5x8 hand made journal with mx media paper. Recently I started working with other sized journals on the show. I guess the reason is because I don't know what the next one will journal will take the first mix media journal place, once I am finished with 5x8 journal.
    I have a couple journals that are not finished and barley work on camera with. Two that I bought at craft store and two that I have made. So in total I have four decisions, decisions so that is why I keep switching the journal. I keep thinking it will be this one or that one. Still unsure with one but one thing that I do know is that my love for mix media as grown a lot. I know that some pages are better then others, some seem the same and some are ones that I what to hang up on a wall. I learn from each page and try to have fun working on them.

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.
