Designing a Shattered Crystal Pilgrim Badge Part 1 of 2

I have been wanting to design a Pilgrim Badge for Crystal Ball as a semi standard site token, the Idea being that it could have a hole in it that a date could dangle from it. This is my learning piece I haven't done one of these before. I am reversing the pin back so it is poured into from the top down here it is still backwards and that is what is causing the hole in the front. After I am done and it works I will weight it and then decide if I want to remake the whole things smaller which I might do just because I can and to see how small I can make a piece. I also may play with trying to make one that is lacy on the inside on a frame work of the diamond. But I don't know if I can make the pin back work the way I want so I will cross that bridge when I get to it.
Thank You Master Philippe for the advice of the mold and pin back.

Working on a pewter shot cup

I am working on a pewter shot up I have the out side figured out next I will be working on the inside the sick is not a real solution just to see what the out side looks like.

Just a sampling of some Largess

Just a small sampling of some of the larges I made and gave to my Baron and Baroness I forgot to take of the finished rings these are Perls on silver coated wire. and Hematite diamonds with metal Celtic knot work beads with crystal studded head pins.

Bullet Journal 3 of 3 My Diet Journal

I like the look of the postit notes I just do I love to collect quotes when I am in a mode they are there for me 

one way yo track my weight lose is a race track that I fill in a box for each lb lost

so I have two other way to track my weight loss one is from the beginning of the year besides crossing out the weight I circle the total lbs lost so I can see it at an instant
The other is since I started the 20/30 Diet. same I list the total lbs lost and the weight

Here I listed inches down and weight change
The diet I am on is about changing your relationship with food most people eat to deal with emotions 

this page didnt work for me I hate logging water and daily stuff

failed for the same reason as the last page this is just not who I am

more quotes

this was a thought experiment with lists Because I am a list kind of person and knowing your strengths are a big plus

finding something that works I don't mind writing down my weight most of the time more so then texting it to my coach. And the Quote that has stuck with me the most the this one. Realizing it is not about what you cant have and such that is is my choice and I have all the power and it is just how I use it has been my biggest strength.

Bullet Journa 2of 3

I set up a list page for each month

As time moved on I made it Opposite a Drawn calendar page

I have 2 today lists one is for my SCA projects some are long term goals and reminders

I have a done list too because some times things come up quick and I do them with out putting them on my to do list and I need to remind myself what I have gotten done

Bigger project for the house that are more now and not always on other lists

Tracking weight lost so I can see how far I have come when things are moving slow

My project to do list by room of the house Crossing off things that are done

My big done list for the house and mundane things for the year
the progress of books the purple one is my diet book the middle is my current Bullet Journal and the little one was my first attempt and is not my shopping list book

some times I get a little artsy 

a simple goals list different then a to do list the weight one has ten lb increment boxes to check off as I keep going closer to my goal.

we did two trips this year and You don't see the post it notes I used to track and plan each trip I didnt want permanent pages for those things
I have already started my 2018 Goals List page and I have made half of the years calendar pages and started adding birthdays and SCA events.
I will start a new SCA to do list and more projects to it.
This helps my mind rest I tend to even keep the list book next to my bad so if something crosses my mind before I go to bed or first thing in the morning I can write it down and not forget it this helps my mind rest so much.

Bullet Journal trials and successes 1 of 3

 I have 3 bullet journals the first one is my beginning attempt at the idea. and what I learned about myself, what works for me and more important what doesn't
I started with dreams of grandure

House chore cleaning list I can say I wish I was better about doing these.
list of bills to pay
we switched to using excel for this

I have been good working on a goal list. this helps still my mind a bit I can even have a page for a project. This helps me so much.
The "ToDone" list is a tadah list really it helps me remeber all the things I have gotten done. 

SCA todo list

things that cost that I was saving for.

I had dreams of illustrating my recipes. we will see if I decide to try this again this year who knows I am not holding out hope.
Tomorrow I will show you My second attempt. Much better still using it.
