Goooooood morning everyone and happy Fri-YAY! What a busy week this has been! I am quite ready for the weekend and happy that it is a 3 day weekend to boot! We will be visiting my parents on Sunday to help them with some things around the house (Grim will be plumbing, so if you hear swearing form the distance, that's us...!), but besides that, nothing planned.

I need to take a pic of myself some time to track progress, but I keep forgetting and no one wants a selfie of me before 5am, haha, so instead you can have pics of my hand! :) Grim and I made a plaster sculpture of our hands on Sunday. Didn't it come out so well? I love it!

*edited to add a pic of myself below!


And here is my bestest crafting buddy with my Cricut in the background :)

QOTD: Can you hold up clothes in the store and know if they will fit? I used to be a pro at this when I was heavy but since losing weight and then having some regain, my brain has absolutely no idea what size I am. I had to run to Target last night to get a superhero t-shirt for Spirit Day today and I didn't want to try it on, so I just grabbed a M. I held it up and thought it looked small. But this thing is so long on me! Here I am in my batman dress :)

Food... hmm. I have a whole refrigerator of nice food to cook, but these long days have gotten to me and I am coming home to either grab something easy or let Grim make me a burger. Last night was a burger and I ended up going over my calories and ended the day at 1150.

Good mornin everyone! I LOVE the hands! That is just so sweet!

I've been up since midnight...I've tried laying back down only to be so itchy I couldn't stand it. It's going to be a long long day. My left leg hurts really bad and it's also very numb. I'm really miserable. I at least got the prescription thing figured out yesterday. What a mess that was.

Not a whole lot planned for the day. I do need to run to Michael's but that should be a quick trip. I'm just needing a few craft things and I have a gift card to use. Mainly needing a few light grip mats for my cricut. I tried some alternative brands for it but the grip was most decidedly not light!

QOTD: being on the taller side there are certain aspects I can do this by. The length being number one. I'm extremely long waisted so clothes can be a nightmare...I have a hard time with low rise pants(I hate them...) and the length of the pants. Size wise...not really to really a good judge of that!

menu is up in the air. I really need to start planning but that takes energy.



5th anniversary of me releasing the tutorial for this one and of course a picture of Opal!

I like the NICAPA brand for knock-off Cricut tools. If you put a piece of fabric down and lift on the mat before you use it for paper, it will lighten the adhesive :)

When I go to edit my post it shows all kinds of added characters so I'll just add it this way...

figured out my food and so far it's at 783. I'm sure there'll be 2 more snacks just don't have a clue as to what that'll be.
