Oh great crafting activities! I have only done calligraphy but being left handed it is a challenge. I wish I could draw or sketch.

Well, of course I had to look up the word kumihino, and I realized that I have a beautiful necklace in that style. (Would you call it a style, or technique, or what?) I had no idea how it was made, and I enjoyed reading an article about it.

I mainly enjoy papercrafts, mixed-media, bookbinding, and calligraphy. I belong to two different drawing/sketch groups, but I'm still a learner who needs lots of practice!

Thanks for the welcome! What kind of crafting do you do? I currently bead, knit, spin, and kumihino.

I really think it is from tracking my meals and staying just a little below the bottom range in calories. I have been recovering from shoulder surgery so I haven't been doing that much exercise other than PT. I have always thought that to lose weight you had to do a ton of exercise and not eat. However I now eat 3 meals a day plus a snack and about 8 pounds a month seem to come off. I am amazed at the variety of food I eat too for 1150 cals a day.Happily I am never hungry and I'very dropped about 6 clothing sizes. It is time to start good willing all my winter clothes. I still have about 110 lbs to go. How is it going with you?

I will take a photo at work tomorrow and upload it.
Congrats on 2 pound loss too. I'm down a total of 58 pounds but sometimes the scale just doesn't budge for days!

Hi. I am Gigi from NY and I love crafting. It is Fall Fest and Halloween Train show at work all month. Had kids making "Paleo-pouches" which are dinosaur shaped pouches made out of vinyl that they laced together with lanyard and cross bodied with a raffle strap. It was fun and the kids (hundreds of them) were thrilled!
