A free silhouette  from "The Graphic Fairy"  on a  Mixed media background in one of my
 Altered Books
meant for our new theme SILHOUETTES over at 
Try It On Tuesday
I will also link to Art Journal Journey - Winter Wonderland.
It's a TRIPLE-TUESDAY here at froebelsternchen  - so :
Hello to my TSFT friends over at
ELIZABETH'S Altered Book Lover

I want to document my weight loss trip again this week-

I like vegetable stew - here with pieces of sausage .
No strict diet because of the sausage - but yummie!
Drinking tap water.

My dieting and nutritional status is doing quite well at the moment.
I feel quite good!


  1. Love the silhouette on the page ! Glad to know your dieting status is going on well! :)

  2. Wow, that silhouette is wonderful. I was really impressed by your use of an ice skater.

    Seems we both are drinking more water, but I assure you that your meal is far healthier than mine I showed. I'm glad you are documenting your diet, because I went off mine about Thanksgiving (late November) and haven't been able to get back on it. Maybe you could push me to get back in shape where I could lose those pounds I gained while taking care of Sally (who refuses to eat sensibly).

    Thanks for sharing your silhouette and your healthy diet with us for T this Tuesday.

  3. Wonderful journal pages, but being greedy I must say that your dinner looks even better, yummy! Have a great day, take care, hugs, Valerie

  4. What a great page in your journal Susi!! I LOVE THIS!!!, yes our weight , that's a problem for a lot of crafters I think , to much sitting and no exersice, I am now 1,5 year on my pension and I gained 3 kg, I never had this weight before, so olso for me heigh time to do more exercises, and less sugar!!

    Have a nice time!!!

  5. Dein Journalseit eist wunderschön!
    Nah das sieht doch lecker aus.. das freut mich für dich dass dir es so gut geht mit dem abnehmen!
    Lieben Gruss Elke

  6. Eine traumhaft schöne Seite, mit diesem Schlittschuh-Mädel liebäugele ich auch schon eine Weile, das schaut so zauberhaft auf Deiner Seite aus.

    Herzliche Wintergrüße

  7. Love your page - it is really pretty - your use of the silhouette image and your fabulous hand writing make for a stunning page.
    All the best with your healthy eating and weight loss.

  8. herrlich, mit meinem lieblings-winterspruch! Silhouetten mag ich auch sehr gern, die farbe sowieso... stellt sich mir noch die frage: selbst geschrieben? ich trau DIR das natürlich zu (ich könnt`s nicht - aber es gibt ja mittlerweile auch solche Fonts und die find ich richtig g**l)
    schönen winter noch, hier ist es zapfig kalt. aber wenigstens ist diese Trübheit vorbei, für den Moment...

  9. Just read your T comment, and beans and rice together equal enough protein and nutrients you never need meat. It's a far better staple for vegetarians than pasta, which most people want to serve you when they are cooking for a vegetarian. It's a wonderful combination, and I often make a big pot of 9 bean soup and serve it over a bowl of rice. There are SO many ways you can dress it up from savory to spicy to sweet.

  10. Beautiful art work as always - love it!
    Good luck with the dieting :) I haven't had the courage to get on the scales yet after the extra Christmas treats :(
    Wishing you a lovely day Susi........... Gill x

  11. Liebe Susi,
    deine Seite ist großartig, am besten gefällt mir diese Schrift.
    Dein Essen schaut mir heute etwas zu Vegi aus, bei dieser Kälte lobe ich mir eine Rindsuppe mit Griesnockerln oder Nudeln. ;-)

  12. Your lunch looks delicious. I am impressed you've been able to be so good with your diet- congrats! And LOVE the altered page today. Hope you have a great day! (Or are having one!)

  13. Beautiful book pages Susi and a great idea to use book in this way

    Pleased your healthy eating is making you happy. Keep it up.

    Love Chrissie xx

  14. Lovely journal page Susi!! As always! I like very much the silouhette you have used.... Ummm please on plate more for me, it seems so good!! love vegetables! Happy day to you, hugs.

  15. Lovely and wintry, your page, it's delightful.
    Well done on doing well with your diet, that can be difficult.

  16. Love that quote and what a gorgeous silhouette and journal spread depicting it Susi! I love a good veggie mix for a soup-yum-and hooray for you for doing so well with your diet. Happy T day too!

  17. A beautiful silhouette art page Susi, its a wonderful skater image.
    Yvonne xx

  18. Your journal is just beautiful. So soft and gentle. I really like it.
    Well done on your diet. I find it is so difficult to diet in the winter when you really want to eat all the naughty comfort foods. Good luck.

  19. Wonderful silhouette pages dear Susi!
    Happy for you to be feeling fit and well.
    Water is always my favorite drink.
    Happy T Day

  20. It's good when diet and nutrition go well. It's so hard sometimes, especially (I think) in winter. Happy T Tuesday!

  21. WOW! Susi, your page is as always a mouth-dropping creation! Hugs!

  22. WOW! Susi, your page is as always a mouth-dropping creation! Hugs!

  23. I adore your page - the skater certainly looks deep in thought! I haven't been dieting but since 2015 New Year I have lost one and a half stone - I lost quite a lot in France and since also following advice from the lifestyle course I was on I am still losing! Your stew looks delicious and is exactly the right proportions I would say - half vegetable and a quarter each of carbohydrate and protein! Good Luck with it! Hugs, Chrisx

  24. What a beautiful wintery scene, love how you did the ice and the moon and the text is a great decorative element on this page as well...

  25. That is a lovely silhouette page.
    Thanks for sharing your diet meal. I need to go on a diet as well. We always do, usually in February. We are slowly finishing all the 'forbidden' and unhealthy stuff, and not buying any new. In a few weeks we go back to eating healthily. No caffeine, no
    sugar, no alcohol, less fat, and for me: no wheat
    Thank you for visiting earlier. Sorry for the late comment, I've been out all day.
    Happy T-day,

  26. Pretty winter scene. The veggie stew looks delicious!
    Happy T-Day! :)

  27. I really love this gorgeous spread! Such fabulous color, layering, texture. The image was a perfect choice. I adore it! The lettering really makes the whole thing come together. Truly inspiring!

  28. Eine wunderschöne Journalseite mit diesen kühl-winterlichen Farben! Die dunkle Silhouette des Mädchens auf den Schlittschuhen ist einer schöner Kontrast! Gefällt mir sehr!
    Liebe Grüße, Annette

  29. Fantastisch liebe Susi! Du hast das zauberhafte Motiv fabelhaft und wunderbar verarbeitet und eine zauberhafte Seite damit erstellt. Sooo schön!

  37. Schöne Seiten Susi und das Schlittschuhmädchen ist so schön Vintage,schmacht.
    Liebe Grüße

  38. Beautiful pages Susi, I love the silhouette!
    Good luck with your diet. I gave up flour and sugar 4 months ago, and have lost over 2 stone.
    Alison x

  39. Oh wow, love this one Susi! The mix of greens and blues with splashes of white and then that silhouette...wowwwwwwww!! Love the handwriting too! hugs :)

  40. ich mag die silhouette von dem eislaufenden mädel... das schwarz macht sich wunderbar gemeinsam mit dem grün/türkis/weiß!
    sag mal, ist das deine handschrift?!?! das sieht sooooo toll aus!
    ich finde dich bewundernswert, dass du so brav dabeibleibst beim abnehmen!
    deine gerichte sehen immer so lecker aus! gemüseeintopf gibt es bei uns auch häufig... ich mach dann meist eine gemüse-variante und wer möchte, schneidet sich einen teil von einer knacker in stückerl, die kalten wurststücke kommen am leeren teller und werden mit dem eintopf übergossen, so sind sie auch gleich warm.
    bussi, tina

  41. Susi! Good for you and your diet!! Eating healthy is always the way to go but is sometimes(most times for me) very difficult! I commend you in your efforts!
    Beautiful spread and the silhouette is darling! xoxo
