My apologies and info on a wonderful collaboration

Before I go any further, I want to apologize to everyone who has visited my blog in the last couple of months, looking for new items, and have gone away empty-handed. I also wish to apologize to the people involved in the blog trains and convoys that I had originally signed up for in the last month or two and then (honestly) forgot I had committed myself to.... I know words will never be enough to express how truly sorry I am and I hope that somehow I can make it up to you all and show that I really am not like this, I do not back out of commitments. The last couple of months have been difficult for me, although if you asked for any one particular reason as to 'why', I'm not sure I could give you a straight answer. I have dealt with chronic depression most of my life and it seems that the last couple of months I have been in a very bad "funk" and I am trying my hardest to crawl out of the rut that I seem to have put myself in. There are some days I don't even really want to get out of bed, however I force myself to do it because I know I need to get up and do something, anything....even if it's just a small something....to keep me going. Some days I just feel so defeated, so sick and tired of being sick and tired..... On top of it all, I fell here in the house about 2 months ago. We have hard linoleum floors (no rugs) and we had been cleaning that day, including quick mopping the floors. I hit a wet spot and went straight down on my left knee, and slid a bit to the inside of the knee. As some of you may know, I am not a small woman so the added weight on the knee when I fell surely didn't help. Well, since then, I have had a lot of pain and swelling and discomfort in that knee. I have tried everything and have even seen my doctor - not much is working. The doctor is suppose to be working on a referral for me for an ortho specialist, and I'm hoping that they can help. There are some days I can't straighten my leg at all or put my full body weight on it. Even standing for 15 minutes in the shower is a major chore. So on top of it all, I'm just sick and tired of being in pain and discomfort.


Anyways I wanted to let you know that I am still here, I am working on trying to get myself out of this bad funk and actually have been working on a few different things in PSP. I even joined a scrapping group to learn some new skills to improve what I am offering to you all.


I also wanted to let you all know about a wonderful collaboration that quite a few of the designers from The Creativity Shack - and other stores too - have worked very hard on and have up at a few different stores, including TCS. The kit is called "Friends and Family Collab" and is a beautiful kit of wonderful hues of purple! Here is a preview of just some of what is offered:

The proceeds for this kit will be going to a wonderful scrapper who is going through a lot of personal issues right now and needs our support. So please, head on over to the store (just click the link, above the preview, where the name of the kit is mentioned), check it out and help lend a hand to a fellow scrapper in need. And what is even better is the kit is now 50% off, for only $1.50!! With so much offered in the kit, and helping someone in need, this is surely a win-win situation!!


I hope to have something new posted for you all very soon. I hope you all haven't lost your faith in me.

Thank you so much for reading.

Sorry to hear that you haven't been well. I know all about chronic pain and depression and lack of inspiration or motivation. Some days I seem to live in a total brain fog but like you I always make sure I get out of bed each morning and get dressed as it would be too easy to sleep the day away.

I truly hope you are feeling better soon. Is there a trusted friend or counsellor you are able to talk to.

Hope your appointment with the ortho-pod is soon. Take care.

Sorry to hear you've not been feeling well. I do know how you feel; it could have been me writing. Feel better soon.
