Thank you all for your kind words of encouragement. I don't often use my blog as a place to vent my frustrations or problems but sometimes I just get to my last straw. So often people have that kind of "get over it" attitude if they do not understand what dealing with depression is like. It IS a disease and its hard to deal with. Thanks for those of you who have shared your stories for dealing with depression and offering shoulders to lean on. You are appreciated more than you will ever know.
So, to change the subject up a bit. I think many of us have an eye toward spring already. Though it has been a fairly mild winter here in CA so far, we do get tired of gray days and being cooped up in the house. Currently we are facing a week of rain which those of you with littles know is NO FUN!
Lately I have been seeing some fun things that have inspired me and made me swoon. I thought maybe you would like to see them as well and perhaps feel a bit of warmth inside at the thought of these wonderful things:
New COLLAGE SHEETS by Hope at Paper Relics!
Add a bit of color and whimsy to your art with Hope's fantastic sheets of wings, hats and magical things. I love these babies!!
And I am swooning HARD for the jewels found at this fantastic Etsy shop called 1ofmyKind. I think her stuff is to.die.for! and if I am not really careful I could go broke shopping there. I'll just have to hope that the DH reads this post! (Hi Honey)
I can't wait until these stamps are in stores. They just came out at CHA and Laura (evil woman) pointed me in their direction. I love them and I WANT them. They are by Crafty Secrets who does not sell directly from their web site but I am going to hunt them done with dogged determination!
Ok, I think that is it for this post. I have downed a cup of coffee and feel more awake. I NEED to finish my ArtFest fat book pages and get them in the mail along with the goodies from my heART drawing. Hope everyone has a great day!
