Easy Flower Accessory

I made these flowers to put on our Easter dresses back in the spring.  I found the tutorial for them here.  They made a great accessory to our outfits!

I cut out 1 inch strips using my rotary board and cutter.

 I just crossed them over each other and sewed them together by hand.

 I then added some pearl buttons to the middle. Perfection!

25 Pounds Lost!

On the left - Before & On the right - After 25lbs lost!

At the beginning of the year I decided to start logging everything I ate.  I also began a consistent exercise regime.  Needless to say, it has paid off.  I know 25 pounds in 10 months isn't as much as some would lose in that time frame, but it's a lot for me.  I tend to have a very hard time losing weight and I'm not sure why.  I have found a good balance between diet and exercise.  No, I don't deprive myself.  If I want a candy or slice of cake, I have it.  I just don't overly indulge.  I have learned moderation is key!  I just wanted to share my success with all my friends!  I have another 25-30 pounds to go and I believe I can do it!  Look for my 50 lbs lost pictures close to summer next year.
