Hope everyone has a wonderful New Year. Wishing you much success and happiness.
2011 was a very trying year for me medically. I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Sjogrens Disease. I've dealt with chronic pain from my neck being fused from C2-T3. Over the last 9 years I had 6 cervical spine surgeries. I have 3 bulging discs in my lumbar spine. Along with that came depression that was very difficult to manage. I have been on long term medical disability since January 2008. I think the pain feeds the depression.
I have met some awesome friends through crafting. I love crafting on Skype with my out of town friends.
Crafting is the one thing that keeps me going. I long the challenge of trying new techniques. I love vintage and shabby chic the best. Tim Holtz is a close third. LOL
A couple of weeks ago I went to the Upcycle Exchange. The owner and I talked about her new consignment department. I took some of the books I've made to get some feedback. She likes them so much she agreed to let me consign them in her store. Needless to say I'm very excited. I was over the top to have someone think my work was professional enough to sell. My friend Dianna got me started on making books. I love making books now. I can spend hours looking at You Tube videos. Watching You Tube videos is addictive. LOL
I've had an Etsy store for a long time. Haven't done much with it until now. I'm going to be posting a book I made today. The Etsy link on my blog will take you to my store. Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think. I think I've found my niche with making books.
Thanks so much.
