Crafting and Weight Loss Update

I promised a while back that I would post some pics of the resin crafts that I’ve been doing.  I’ve also been doing a bit of needle felting.  I’ve been having a heck of a time this morning with posting, so I hope this will work, since it’s my fourth try! I’m going to place all of my text together and then post the pictures.

The first few frames contain broken glass that’s either found, leftover from other projects, or purposely smashed bottles or jars that I decided to reuse instead of recycle.

The next frames contain glass stones that would normally be used in vases or with candle displays.  Both of these types look really pretty either hung or propped in windows with the light shining through them.

My last picture is just a little snippet of the needle felting that I’ve been doing.  My moray eel still needs teeth and some embellishments.

The best thing about crafting is that it keeps my hands out of the fridge and pantry and my mind thinking of things other than my next meal or snack!  Luckily, it seems to be working because I’ve finally lost a little more weight; three more stubborn pounds!!  Seven more pounds to go in order to have a BMI in the “normal” range.

I hope everyone have a magnificent weekend, and I hope you like my crafting.  I’m going to hit “publish” whether, or not, the pictures post in the proper order that I’ve placed them in, because I’m really tired of this posting tool not working for me this morning! 🙂

      1. I commend you for being able to control yourself around your hobby! I love how you mix your food with a giant bowl salad. I’ve been doing that sometimes, too, and you really feel like you’re getting more food!
