Hi there! Glad you found me. Some of you may know that my life is no bed of roses but in amidst the tragedy there are truly beautiful moments. I've wanted to make the best of those moments for so long, and to help me I've decided to journey back and explore what makes me feel, think and behave the way I do. Hopefully I'll begin to understand more about me and begin to find more peace

This isn't a challenge blog but if you fancy joining me on my journaling journey, I'll leave a linky so you can post your thoughts.

Here's wishing you special moments in time

Fat n Finger Nails!

Saw this picture in a mag in the doctors surgery and just had to have it - it is so very much me.  I strive constantly to present myself well, Until lately I wouldn't go out without my face on and my nails perfectly done, despite being hugely overweight it was important that I looked right. I'd love to be chic and elegant but being the weight I am can only achieve good make up and nails. So this page is me - overweight and striving for perfection! lol

There's even the symbol of sin in there - can you spot it? - the snake winding it's way round the edge of the page.

There are lots of reasons we behave as we do, I have the healthiest diet you can imagine but when I'm stressed I reach for the chocolate. 

Addiction and compulsion is not a thing that's alien to we crafters, I bet there are many of you out there who struggle not to buy 'one more stamp' each month. 

I create artwork either on myself with my face and nails or on paper with my crafting until I'm too tired to do any more then descend into exhaustion and sit in the corner of my sofa eating chocolate.

It's not a great pattern of behavior but one I'm trying hard to change.

As always I'm going to leave a Linky as I'd love to see any pages you create, so cumon, make my day and post a page, maybe one about your compulsions.

Hi Michelle, I have to admit to having compulsions but journalling is so new to me, as in I've never attempted one!! Love your pages and am seriously thinking of jumping in, Gay xxx
