  • quick little update

    As some of you know I have been ill with depression this winter. I was hospitalized in Feb and I had been having quite a struggle. Been unemployed since a job layoff last March. I caught a nasty chest virus in Feb that did me in. My car needed repair and the unemployment money was there one week and held back the next, my son went to live with relatives and does not want to come back with me and so on...

    Just want to let all of you know that things are going better and I am in a better place right now. Meds were changed yet again and I have had a relief of my symptoms finally. Insurance finally went through as I was without for quite a time and was denied care for a while. I have been called in to do some temping with a local factory a few day a week lately and I had a rather BIG tax refund. hee hee. Nice to see a healthy balance in there, Wish I could spend it hahahahahaa.

    Well as some of you know...I am on a freebie design team called the Sweet tarts and I have been super busy the last six weeks with a secret designers competition. It concluded yesterday and I tell ya, I had to pull many a late night trying to get all of the doo dads into those kits. We were given some tutorials and I will have a blog train to announce the grand opening on Friday on the blog.

    I have 4-5 exclusive kits with the new store going up and I will be posting some sneak peeks on the bloggity and there will be quick page freebies and the mini kits for the blog train. May Flowers.

    Sorry that I have been so quiet but it is so so so hard when I was having repeatedly bad days one after another. The only thing I could do to keep my head up was to design, design, design. These kits will only be available at this new site as they are exclusives. Keep your eyes pealed! More to come.

    Thank you to those who checked in on me I so appreciate it.

          Hey Crystal,

          I'm glad your doing better. I can certainly understand all that you've been going through. Depression is not fun. It seems that this poor economy and health issues has taken it's toll on so many of us.

          I can tell you that it being here at SBM can be so helpful. I am so thankful that I've had my SBM family to lean on. They are all such special people. Their words of encouragement can prove to be the best non medicine treatment available.
