Spooky Eyes

I just want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has commented and emailed me about my last couple of posts, it really does mean a lot to have so much support from so many cyber friends.

So I've decided to be done with feeling sorry for myself and get on with things, after all things could be a lot lot worse. Verobirdie left a great comment on my last post about remembering the joyful things that happen each day no matter how small. I think a 'joy journal' would be a great art project!

Madhatter also mentioned that she likes to find some creative time everyday and I think that would really help me. Most days at work I tend to work right through my lunch break, and do I get any extra thanks, no I don't, so starting tomorrow I will be packing some portable creative projects in the car and lunchtime will become my creative time. I'm feeling excited and more relaxed just thinking about it.

I know I have been and missed Halloween celebrations this year, but I just have to share this picture of spooky eyed Hector which I took while messing around with my camera for a few minutes today.
Hope you all had a great weekend!

I think taking some creative stuff for your lunch break is a fantastic idea. I know that a large part of what keeps me sane (or as sane as I'll ever be) is that I manage to create something most days - knowing I get there nearly every day means when I can't, it doesn't matter so much.

Another thing you might do is when you do have a larger chunk of time, set up some small projects ready to go for when you might only have 15 minutes - like the ingredients to make some inchies or something small. Make some backgrounds, throw a couple in a baggie with some embellishments and the next time you feel blah but only have a moment or two, grab a baggie and get to work - it can really help your mood...

Some really good advice from Kate. Stitch and Go is so good for keeping sane. Love your cat. Hector is fantastic, what does he think about the fireworks? Schnauzer loves them.. such a mad dog!
See you soon
Take Care

Hector is gorgeous! I have a white cat too and I know how special they can be.
