So what's been going on? Well...
... actually, I'll save that. I typed it all out and there was just too much. Lets just saying it involved coursework, stomach bugs, new bathrooms that went wrong, unrelated leaks, unrelated electricity problems, snow, Christmas, birthdays, stomach bugs and a major depressive crash. The good news is that things are starting to trickle along in a more normal fashion and I have, what is hoped, is the right drug for me now so that all the other things don't cause me to fall over in a snotty heap sticking pencils up my nose and shouting wibble.
Have I been dieting? Well yes and no. But I'll come back to that.
Have I been exercising? Well yes and no. But I'll come back to that.
Have I been decluttering? You bet your sorry little box of car boot rubbish I have!
Have I been studying? Yes! And getting assignments in. I'm excited about the next module because it is Life Writing... which is kinda blogging by another name innit?
Have I been crafting? Of course I have! Yay! (and thanks to Jennifer's advice I *think* I have sorted the issues with my photos...)

I used Crate Paper Farmhouse and some older AC Flair badges for this bright project.
I used lots of the stickers from the collection pack and layered up with buttons and tags and ribbons oh my!

I'm still loving the pinwheels! Those felt leaves were a bargain in The Works and add another pop of colour and texture.

I have such plans a-foot for my blog in terms of holding myself accountable and I mainly want to get back to why I started this in the first place; to help me heal and to reach out to others who use arts and crafts to help them deal with depression and mental health problems.
I just wanted to give a shout out to Sarah at S J Crafts because she allowed me to take a step back from the design team when I felt I should quit. She stood by me and didn't give up on me and made me believe in myself again that I had something to give. Thank you Sarah! We're going away for a scrapping weekend in a couple of weeks with a few of the Artful Angels and we can't wait! I'd better start packing!
Bye for now
