Thursday Favorite Things #446

Thanks for joining us for another Thursday Favorite Things link pary.  I'm really glad you're here today.

I've started back on Weight Watchers (WW), after a break during the early part of the pandemic. I just couldn't stay focused enough to do it then, but now I'm back on track and losing weight again.

I have to say, WW really works, and I always have things on hand I can eat. (Eggs, oatmeal, and air-popped popcorn are a few of the zero point foods, so I feel like I'm cheating when I eat a couple of hard boiled eggs. Ha.  I even called WW customer service and asked them if it's really true I can eat as many hard boiled eggs as I want.)  I do realize this sounds like a commercial, but I'm not affiliated!

Here's  what I shared at the blog this week. How to Use a Light Pad (Light Box, Light Tablet) For Lettering and Crafts   I really love this simple tool, and I use it the most for lettering.



How to Use a Light Pad (Light Box) for Lettering and Crafts

Years ago, I discovered light boxes (now also called light pads or light tablets) when I began learning calligraphy and lettering.

What is a Light Pad?

 A light pad is basically a thin box or tablet with a translucent surface that is lit from inside.  You simply place a sheet of paper on it that has guidelines or an image you want to trace, and then place another sheet of paper on top of that. When you turn on the light, it allows you to see the image on the paper beneath.

Crafts, Teacups, and TFT #443

Happy Thursday, and thanks for joining us at the Thursday Favorite Things link party.  I'm really glad you're here.

This week at the blog I shared Low Maintenance Flowers and Plants for Curb Appeal. We have both full sun and shade areas at our house, so there are some ideas for plants for both kinds of light. In the few days since I took the photos, the flowers have already taken off, and the colors make me happy.
