I feel a bit like a fraud. My last post came from my heart and I gave it about 5 or 6 days and then life happened and I realized this is not the time to make myself any more irritable than usual. My son is into everything-and leaves HUGE messes in his wake. 3 minutes alone and I get: goldfish crackers I gave him to snack on while running errands all over the kitchen floor-and crushed into pieces when I went to put on my coat. Coffee pot contents disassembled and strewn across the floor while I went to the bathroom, I could go on and on but that pretty much sums it up.

I adore all of you and thank you for all your kind comments and support. I am so behind on getting back to emails and reading blogs.

This is a busy time for the shop and I am stealing every moment I can to get orders out and a few new things made.

I will be setting up my month long show this Tuesday. I still need to pick 3 more photos and put about 15 photos in frames I bought and then wire the backs. Then there are christmas cards.....anyway. I will be throwing a few new things up in the shop over the next day or two and will post here to fill you in.

I will be back writing normal posts after xmas.

Love to all of you.

just catching up on your last few posts~

I have gained 30 pounds over the last 5 years. Would this have happened if I didn't have two children? I don't know. I am the happiest I have ever been. I know this. I have proof in my journals! Yet every where I read and hear my extra weight must be some issue that I am surpressing. I just don't know. I have tried to look inside to see if it is something that I am just not facing or this is really my body set point at age 37.
I don't have an answer.
I just wanted to share because your sharing has helped me feel less alone in my wondering and journey.

I really appreciate your honesty and openess of your posts.

I wish you well with your show!
Take Care!

I find it so fascinating that so many people have a sense of guilt over blogging - writing, reading, commenting, etc. For some reason I have gotten this from a lot of people lately, things like, "I promise I'll email more later!" or "I am going to read your blogs as soon as I have a quiet moment." (I am guilty of the same thing!!)

Take care of yourself and let go of feeling like you owe the blogging world anything...we are all here reading because we want to, and more than anything we want you to be good to you!!!

Honey, I am playing catch up two and have just read your last post as well as this one.

First of all, you are not a fraud; you wrote what you wrote because that is exactly how you were feeling in those moments. And, as we all know, feelings can change and shift from day to day, even moment to moment.

The point is that you are thinking all of this through and you are trying to figure out what works for you in the grander scheme of things. You are not going to reach that point overnight; it's that change takes time thing. But then we beat ourselves up because we are not seeing the change now and what are we doing wrong etc. etc. I too know it well.

Take it one day at a time, one step at a time, because you are making progress and forward movement...and I am so glad that you entrusted us with your story and your words and those beautiful photos of you and your mother...glowing and so full of love.

I send you love and light and strength and everything good. You are on the right path; I believe that in my heart. xoxoxoxo

OT: I wanted to tell you that you can find one of those lockets made for the ashes at a funeral home. Mine is a sterling silver cross, and they put the ashes in it and seal it, so it is water proof.
