DOM cards 22, 23, and 24...

I got a bit behind on my DOM cards so I played catch up last night and today. So now I'm all caught up!

Week 22 was what do you want to learn? I have a way of needing to know how things work. And not just a little bit of how they work. I need to know all the aspects of whatever it is. So my card focuses on my new camera. I want to MASTER all the features. Fonts are Gothic and CK melton. I'm loving those two right now. As you will see on the next card!
Week 23 theme was Right now... I try not to over analyze the themes and try to go with whatever comes to me when I read the entry on Emily's blog. This was what popped into my head. Journaling reads...
"I am FAT. Every morning I wake up, look in the mirror and tell myself this. To some extent it is negative self-talk. But it's also reality. I still have 15 pounds of pregnancy weight. And I don't want it. But I'm not motivated to get rid of it either. It makes me sad and angry to still be struggling with my weight. I feel like a failure."

I printed the card on white photo paper and then did some doodling. Kept it simple as the focus was mainly on the journaling. As an aside, I try not to be a downer. It requires too much attention. Owen helps me to not always be concerned about myself too. And after talking to Morgan about this issue I am feeling better and have decided to try and start running again. I would like to do the Twin Cities 10 miler in October. If I have a goal I am more apt to accomplish something.
And lastly this week's theme is Remember When. This one I thought a bit more about and decided to write about a childhood memory. I did the journaling on a plain office supply tag and put some safety pins on as the "ribbon".

I have a lot more memories from when I was very young than I seem to do from when I was an older child. Maybe less turmoil! I enjoyed thinking about this while I was making the card. And when I say very young I mean 3 or 4.

I find a lot in common in your card, feel the same when i look in the miror, i know that weight is not the most important thing and i know i have good things but it's not nice, knowing that you want to do something about it but haven't the strength for it well in my case, but hey you have made a very nice card !! and am sure you have lots of good things more !! keep smiling ! and your other card is great too, weird isn't that memories can be still so close like it feels like yesterday !...sweet greeting :)

I feel like you when I look in the mirror as well! I'm trying to bust through and keep some motivation, but it's hard!

Your DOM cards are beautiful and I always enjoy your journaling because it's from the heart. I feel the same way about my camera, I was just thinking about that yesterday that I want to learn more in depth about what I can do with it.

Don't be too hard on yourself about the weight. You're good at being focused so I know that you can loose it with some hard work. I'll be cheering you on and you got my support.

P.S I too started a loser challenge :P
