Short recap



Just a few words to let y'all know I ain't dead.

I am still going through a rough patch.
Actually, this is what most of a depressed life is like,
and the better patches are few and far between.

Hmm. That paragraph went nowhere really fast.

We've had alot of family time lately. For my dad's 70th
he swept us all away for a weekend at a spa (my first),
and we just had my little nieces over for a monster themed
sleep over. It's all been pretty nice but also exhausting.

I am trying to catch up on my blog reading
and I finally put all my giveaway prices on the box.
I hope that they will reach their recipients soon!

Most else in my life is still up in the air,
and I feel like I am just waiting for it to fall
- either on its face, or into place.
I'll get back to you when it does.

In the meantime; Take care, and I miss you guys.

    1. Thank you very much, Debi! I'm still so sorry that I missed out on your party :( But maybe I'll catch you during the fanciful Vanessa's tea party:)

  7. Miss you too! I hope things perk up, I don't know what life with depression is like personally but I do know that you must be a very strong and driven person to be able to live with such a difficult illness. My love to you!

    1. Thank you!
      It is interesting to me, this perception of weak or strong. I feel weak so much of the time, yet people see me as such a strong person. I feel like real hardship doesn't faze me, but everyday stressful family life would...

  8. I knew you weren't dead cause you commented on my post. Although you must read my reply to your comment so I know what to make you. ;)

    Tough times for you, giving up something you'd worked so hard for. I was almost debating the point of it all after that latest market too, but I think I've still got another year left in me before I throw up my hands and call it quits.

    1. I know it must be hard over there too, running a business like yours, but at least you are making and selling things you love, still. I feel like I sold out a long time ago, and still people don't shop... And the fairs you attend sound so amazing - and somewhat frequent. We don't have anything like that over here. I daydream about coming over to Canada and helping you out :)

  9. Good to hear you are still alive! ^^ Blogging should not be first priority before real life, I think everyone knows and understands!

    1. Thank you, that's good to hear. Yeah, lately life has certainly been getting in the way of blogging.

  10. I'm glad to hear that you're alright...well, relatively. I know what it feels like when things are just hanging in the air, but I'm sure you'll manage...! :)

    1. I know that you recently went through some big changes in your life, and looking at blog friends going through things and coming out stronger on the other side is really helpful.

  11. I miss you, too, but I know you need your cocooning time every now and again. I'm crossing my fingers for longer stretches with us. Sending you hugs... about a gazillion of them. ♥

    1. Dearest, thank you. Things are in motion, they just take.. well - time :)
      I plan on making a blogging come-back sometime during summer, I just need a few things to work out first.

  12. Glad you are alive and well. A monster themed sleepover? Gosh I'd LOVE that! Even now as a grownup.

    1. I dressed up as a horrible ghoul (I've never worn so much face-paint!), my partner was an animal type monster in black fur and fangs, and the nieces were a vampire and a witch, respectively.

  13. Glad to see a blog from you, although, I have been a bit absent from the blogger world the last several weeks. It sounds like you have had some fun or pleasant moments at least. I'm sorry you're having a rough patch. I hate depression, I hate it so much. I wish you didn't have to deal with it. *hugs* hang in there.

    1. Thank you, dear Hannah. It's always good to hear from someone who knows what it's all about, makes me feel less alone.
      I was thinking of you today, how you were doing with everything. When I get my computer back, you're on the list of people I want to email :)

  14. The way you write is such flowing. Keep writing. http://www.bellofpeace.org

  15. I miss your posts, my dear! I'm sorry to hear things are moving slowly. I can sympathize, I still have that anxiety of not knowing what's to come. A cancer patient gave me some advice and that was to just let things happen. It was a lot longer and more drawn out then just that, mind you, she told me of how she went to school for social work and ended up in a million different jobs. She felt that I shouldn't worry too much about not being an artist necessarily or going where I think I will, to just enjoy the ride. I'm trying to, but the darker days make it difficult and the pressures of finances are ever present. Maybe if I bake some cookies things will seem better lol. I hope things improve for you soon.

    SvaraRadera
    Svar
    1. You know, home baked cookies can make many things just a little bit better :)

      But yes, you are right and just lately I (together with my parents, who are co-owners of my shop - and yes, that makes things extra stressful...) have decided to close the store for a proper vacation, for the first time since we opened 6 years ago. I will take a couple of weeks or more in July, and we will probably put up the store for sale at the same time.

      I really hope you are feeling better soon too!

  16. Thank you so much for the gift! I received it today.

    1. I'm so glad! I always worry a bit that my things won't reach their recipient. Just last month I got back a book that had travelled the globe for almost 6 months..

  17. Shiny happy mail came yesterday. Yea! I ️hope life settles for you soon, with only the smallest portion of 'that's not cool'. The spa day & party sounded like fun.

    1. So happy you finally got it! Sorry it's taken me so long. Thank you for the well wishes:)

  18. I must admit I can relate a bit with life being up in the air, the only thing that is in place for me right now is that I'm attending university and even that may be taken away from me very soon (they're probably going on strike next month).

    I hope you get better, really. ♥

    1. Thank you.
      Though striking is usually for a good reason - better pay or equal rights - I'm sorry it has to affect you.
      I hope this summer becomes a time of balancing out all the rough patches of winter and spring.

Lately I have been falling behind answering comments, for many reasons. But I read and cherish all of them! Your comments make my day, yay!
