Okay, I know what you are all waiting for:
Yes, my weight loss journey is almost over. I am about 85lbs down and am learning how to accept my new body. In my after pic I am wearing the sweater that I wore during my DVD taping. Please ignore the hair. ;)
I have recently been getting back to art and it has been very therapeutic. This time of year has always been hard for me mentally, and creating again is helping me get back to "normal".
One of my recent projects is this mini file folder book inspired by the wonderful Inkwell .
I have been recently obsessed with mini books!! More coming soon!
I have also uploaded a few videos over on Youtube, including a new tutorial:
It's great to be back. Thanks to all my friends for sticking with me during this break. Can't wait to share more... I've even been drawing!

She's baaaaaack! And congrats on the weight loss. Your body thanks you! I just hit my weight loss goal today of all things! I have lost 17 pounds over the past 5 months, doing a 1500 calorie a day eating plan. Regular food, just less. Somebody said the secret to losing weight is 90% less calories intake and 10% exercise. I have to agree.ReplyDelete
