Crafty Day

Saturday, October 10, 2015

I did more decorating today. Inside...

and out. I cut out silhouettes of mice and bats to create this image in my front window.

With a close up of the mice

I am having a very tough time right now with some situations. I am not on program. I am trying to keep myself busy busy to avoid, but it is not working. I need to figure this out. I am going backwards from my hard work. Only the last few days, but I can do great damage in a short period of time. I'm good at ithat.

    You can do this! You know your triggers and you are staying busy. Life happens and it's ok to waver a little. I know what you mean - my weight comes on a lot easier than it leaves.

    Stay strong! You're very talented at decorating!!!

    You are crafty emoticon I love the Halloween decorations. It's hard to keep going when there's stuff trying to weigh you down. You might as well face it, deal with it then move on. Hopefully it's something you can fix if it isn't then you just have to except and continue moving forward. emoticon

    Fantastic craft work. I wish I was talented in that way. Meanwhile, stick at it - you'll come through. I agree with the practising maintenance idea.

    Try to use this tough time to "practice" being at maintenance. That's what I've done in tough times past (and I KNOW will come in the future). Sometimes, just focusing on a couple of healthy habits will keep you on track enough until you can get back to a "happy place". I will be praying for you!! Just remember, you are not alone & not the only one who has gone thru this!! I know how strong & determined you are!! I know you will come thru this!!

    Without knowing the situations? Strength training really does make you feel stronger emotionally as well as physically. It helps restore self confidence and calm thoughts. From your feed, it appears you did some earlier this week and did not respond to bad news by overeating, and lost three pounds. You have this girl, choose your words wisely, you are good at figuring things out! emoticon

    Don't beat yourself up over set backs. Pick yourself up and start again. You can do this.

    What a talented artist you are, Dawn! The way you use light, color, and forms to create a really festive Halloween mood in these pictures is really fun to behold! I love your Halloween Sparkpage for that matter, too - you are really gifted (if you don't already work as an artist or decorator...or designer!) Thanks for stopping by and paying me a visit, too :) I look forward to getting to know you better. - Mary emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Unbelievable--just wrote a LONG COMMENT and it got swallowed.

    The essence: I love the bats, the mice, and if you had cut out just one, it wouldn't have been much. But the cluster of all those mice and bats together--they look wonderful.

    Not a bad metaphor for everything else that's going on, right?
