Sunday 28th

I knew when I coloured this Sugar Nellie Snowman that he was going to be fabulous, I absolutely love him and I've managed a fairly good match with the Christmas papers left over from last year. The snowflakes are sizzix and cuttlebug, the snowflake embossing folder and I've used prismacolours pencils and Friday sketchers sketch from Mumur.

I've come to the conclusion there are few too many challenges and I'm struggling because I want to do them all and complete other crafting projects too. So I guess I'm going to have to limit myself to what challenges I do and because I love sketches I think they will get my priority first then if I have time or an idea immediately jumps into my head I will join the others when I can.

This is a timed post because early tomorrow morning I'm off to Ally Pally and my very hangover daughter wants to come too, ( I know she will be hang over because she's out tonight with old school friends who try at least once a year to meet up). I'm going to have be seriously good because I'm broke, two visits to craft shop demos, plus Sugar Nellies and Whiff of Joy releases more stamps on the 4th so I shall be sticky strictly to the shopping list (I hope).

I believe that avoiding processed foods is the first step to lose weight. They may taste good, but processed foods have very little nutritional value, making you eat more only to have enough energy to get with the day. If you are constantly eating these foods, switching to whole grain products and other complex carbohydrates will help you to have more energy while eating less. Interesting blog post.
