Journal

Over on the blog for Market Street Stamps they are having a "block party" for the upcoming release.  They are also teaming up with CAS-ual Fridays.  The challenge on the CAS-ual Fridays blog is brown paper bags tied up with strings and on the blog for MSS they wanted us to use any of their AMAZING stamps.  


I decided that I needed a journal for myself because I am better with eating when I have to be accountable. My journal sits right on the bar in the kitchen with a pen next to it and for sure it keeps me more accountable and I love being able to go back and look at what I had during the day.  I have had a horrible cold so I am trying to be better with my food until I can get back to running, weights and Zumba.



I used the word inspiration because I knew when I looked at this book laying on the bar it would always inspire me and remind me to try and do the best I can for me.   I absolutely LOVE this "peace" sentiment and the words are SO TRUE.  You cannot really see the stitching but I did a cut out for my pattern paper  and then it was attached to my corrugated cardboard with my sewing machine.  I love when I get to do a project for me and it for sure does not happen too often!!!  

I hope everyone has a wonderful evening and I am going to attempt to go check out some of the other people at the block party. 
 Can someone please pour me a wine?

Awesome journal Kiddo! I clicked on the picture and red the peace sentiment and you are right, it is wonderful. The journal is a great idea, however I'd need a couple with all the crap I've been eating! LOL Hope you had great holidays, and I wish you the very best the New Year can bring to you and your sweet family! Best, Curt
