How about Misc?

Since my camera is still MIA, hopefully not for too long I thought I'd take a different approach to my life. I am miore than crafts if you can believe it! I might have mentioned it before but I have Major Depressive Disorder, MDD. Basically this means I have a disorder that includes depression and anxiety. It loads of fun, NOT! I control it with meds and therapy. I am pulling out of a downspiral again, hence the reason I re-started my blog. Writing and showing off my crafts makes me happy so there you go!

As you also know from my little intro over there-----> I have five amazing offspring. They include three boys and two girls and range in age from 8 to 16 years old. They constantly keep me either laughing or wanting to drink heavily, mostly laughing though! The one thing I knew I wanted to be when I grew up was a MOM, and I think I've done pretty well. My kids are smart, beautiful, funny, courteous, and a joy to have.

Lastly, I have to talk some sort of crafting! I have been working on several projects. I am crochet animals and monsters, painting weird doll heads, and trying fabric filled embroidery hoops from here:

I hope you are having a fantastic day and having fun!


  1. I hope this doesn't sound weird, but thanks for opening up about your MDD. I have it as well, and I find having a blog is great therapy. I haven't written about my experiences with it very much, partly because I use it to try and focus on positive things, but I do think it's important for people to be open and honest about it, try to shake off any stigma still associated with mental disorders.

    Does that make sense? I'm very tired. :P

  2. Yes it makes sense Leah! I haven't really touched too deeply on my MDD yet. I'm sure I will though as this blog grows and I get more confident. But have you seen this:
    I have been reading the stories and loving the community, check it out if you'd like!
