I am, at last, doing better. My chemistry has begun to level out and allow me to start enjoying my hobbies and crafts again. While not as well as I’d like to be I’ve caught an upswing and I’m going with it for as long as I can.
What’s been happening here?
Lots of snow, ice and cold.
But there are also dolls.
So many dolls! (ok, not really so many since I sold off a bunch for bills and stuff–but still, more than some folks have.)
I’m feeling the love again and have even taken the time to redress some and to make a few custom accessories for them. Which I take to be a good sign. 🙂 I’ve been looking at the new releases from Integrity Toys, and yes, even Barbie. Can you believe I asked for a Barbie for xmas? Yes, it’s truuuue. 😛 My best friend Nat was kind enough to get her for me! 😀 😀 😀
This is what she looks like (not my photos):
I’m thinking I might name her Jemma, but I’m not sure. After I take some pics of her I’m sure I’ll decide what name fits the personality.
Something Else to think about:
I got “let go” from my job about 2 weeks ago. It was related to my health and in one way I feel relieved to not have to deal with the jerk manager. However, even as I feel relieved–I’m stressed because that was my only income. So not having the job hurts.
It’s 2018 and I am working on being as positive as I can. So I am using that as my impetus to start listing things in my Etsy shop again. I plan to do it regularly so that I 1) can help with the bills and 2) make more stuff without having to shift around all the stuff I’ve already made but haven’t bothered to list. So all around, I’m going to say that being let go isn’t such a bad thing even if it does make me uncomfortable for a while.
