Sunday Stitching

Rue Paris…

It has been awhile since I had a time to stitch on this cross stitch.

Today, I took many naps, kept my legs elevated and stitched..it was a nice quiet day.

I found out I am diagnosed with Lipedema and may also have Lymphedema. It’s going to be difficult if it progresses. Which sounds like it will. I’ll be going to medical appointments more often. Blogging may be on hold for awhile. Yet again. Chronic pain really bites! This upsets me and I’ll most likely blog about it, once I feel comfortable to write.

It’s causing me to rethink about my job and how much I take on. I’ll need to make a change. I’m thinking of a few options.

Day 9: Jewelery

Jewelry is always fun to look at. The sparkle, textures, designs and shapes. It really is it’s own piece of artwork.

I have a large box of costume jewelry. It is tangled. I wanted to sort through them and see if they can be worn with my outfits for work. Maybe I will get to that soon. That would be a good decluttering goal as well.

Happy Day

February Challenge

A Pinterest Challenge

I came across as challenge on Pinterest. I was brain storming what I wanted to concentrate on with my blog writing. It had to be something simple and meaningful.

A photography challenge was on Pinterest. This might be fun and interesting.

Challenge Accepted

There might be more than one blog posting from me on some days in February. One will be the photography challenge and the other will be from my other topics, art, crafts, simple life, recipes etc.

Happy Day

Vision Board

Have you ever wondered how to make a vision board?

It is simple. There’s a few ideas I have to make one that will show you what your goals are.

Some ideas about vision boards:

  1. Choose a specific goal such as a career board, vacation board, home board etc
  2. Use categories to make your vision board. The entire board will capture one image for each category.
  3. Meditate on your vision board. What you meditate on can be the focus of the vision board.

Vision Board Supplies

  • Magazines
  • Access to s computer and color printer
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Washi tape
  • Construction paper
  • Large size poster board

1. Start by going through the magazine to find words, phrases, or pictures that represent your goals

2. Arrange the pictures into the poster board.

3. Optional place construction paper on the poster board to add colors in-between the pictures.

4. Once it is arranged, glue the pictures.

5 optional use washi tape to add color between the pictures.

Enjoy making your vision board
