TGF Heart Journaling--week 17

Hi!  Week 17 of TGF's Heart Journaling.  Theme this week is Soul Food and to create a page based on your favorite food.  Okay, I hate exercising.  So I'm trying to not eat too much junk food cause really I don't wanna have to exercise all the extra pounds off.  I love food but I'm really more lazy unless I have a serious craving for something.  So for this layout, I thought I'd create a page dedicated to some of my favorite guilty pleasures.

I don't even think Cheryl knows the kinds of food I sometimes crave.  But pretty close to the top has to be KFC Original Recipe Chicken.  I mean, I LOVE it!  I don't eat it often but I'll have a craving for it now and then.  I love that it's salty.  I think I'm a salty and sweet kind of person.  But after I eat it, I sometimes feel sick.  Not like a guilty sick but physically nauseous sometimes cause it's pretty oily and greasy.  So then I vow not to eat it again but then I do.  Vicious cycle! 

Also on this page is pork rinds.  Hahaha.  Who would've guessed?  But I love them too and the sad thing is so do my kids so I have to hide the bag from them cause they'll ask for it if they see it.  I know, I'm a hypocritical mom. 

And my last 2 guilty pleasures are chocolate covered almonds and hohos.  So maybe the chocolate almonds are not that bad for you in moderation but I love the one from Costco and yeah, there's a lot.  That's another one I have to hide from the kids.

I actually printed these photos from online and wrote some journaling around it.  Hmmm, I could go for some pork rinds now and good thing I have some in the house!  Hehe.

Thanks for reading!

Wow, is it already art journal time again? Yeah, KFC is pretty good, in small doses, the one near our house closed I think. The pork rinds not so much... I didn't know they still made ho hos, is that the same brand as twinkies and the cupcakes with the white swirly line down the middle? Haven't seen those around since I was a kid! Sounds yummy! Although I like mochi things the best!
All my kind of junk foods.... how can you resist that are just delish in every aspect...
Great journal page Eva~

LOL!! I do love me some junk food too! Nice to hear about your faves! What a cool assignment from TGF, I think it's so interesting to hear what people crave or their favorite thing to cook! I once had this beloved Japanese restaurant & I'd always order their Tempura. I'd also feel nauseous after-- I think that happens when you eat fried food after not having any for a while. As for the chocolate-covered almonds- just think that almonds are super food (lots of omega-3s) & chocolate is good for you in moderation!! ;)

Snowman gift card holder

Hi!  I was planning to post this last night but I was just too tired to write or think of complete sentences.  It's been a busy week with the boys on Fall break and still trying to finish up a bunch of crafts.  I have been trying to make some crocheted crafts to put in my Etsy shop and finally I'm done with one.  It's a crocheted snowman that can hold a gift card or anything actually that is small enough to fit in the pouch.  The pattern is designed by ChiWei Ranck of One Dog Woof and can be found HERE . Here's the little snowman with his arms folded over in the front to look like he is hugging the card.  I added this fun card that I stamped.  You can definitely add in a gift card too behind this card. The gift card reaches under his nose. This is how the little opening of the pouch looks.  I hope I can make more of these little guys.  These would be so cute for teachers and I think it would be easy to put a little wire through the hat and then use it as

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them. I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand? This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful. I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet

coffee cup shaped cards

Hi!  I think after this post I may need a little nap!  My right shoulder is actually feeling worn out from all the typing and photo editing I've been doing lately.  And this cooler weather is making me drowsy.  It's getting cold here already! I made a bunch of these coffee shaped cards using a die from Honey Bee Stamps .  It's a cute coffee set but the die is extra long so it would probably help to have a longer platform to diecut.  I just have the standard sized one so I would pass it through once in my Big Shot and then rotate the cardstock and die carefully to cut the other end.  Manageable but the longer platform would be more convenient! I embossed the front of the card with some pretty snowflakes.  I think this is a Sizzix embossing folder.  And then stamped the coffee sleeve with some Lawn Fawn stamps. This is the inside.  The gift card slot does not come with this coffee cup die set.  I cut that opening with one of the dies from MFT's gift card dies.
