I've done it again, neglected this blog. So what's been going on these past few months? Well, it took forever but we've finally moved and are now settled in our new home in Elwood. I could talk endlessly about how much I love Elwood but I'll save that for another blog post. Now I'm practically obligated to update this thing again!
our new living room
Right now, I'm in the middle of having tests to find out what this vertigo is all about. A month ago, I fainted. Felt fine, felt fine, fainted and threw up. A week later, I fell down some stairs. Days later, I crashed my car door into a pole at work. It has been a month of headaches, dizziness, nausea and I've kept telling people I'm ok, just writing the symptoms off as tiredness. CT scan was normal (fyi, I do gots a brain!) and blood tests didn't show anything abnormal....but my doctor wants me to take three more. I hate her. That's the needlephobe in me speaking.
falling down stairs is every bit as painful as you would imagine
I know I have promised a relaunch many times but this time it's for real, I promise! Trust me, it is hard work to start from scratch again, it's really not as easy as people think. I can sense other self-employed artists and crafters nodding their heads. You can just sit down, nut out a few designs, slap a price tag on them and you're good to go. Then there's life getting in the way, when I stopped making full time, I still needed to make an income so I've been working for the last couple of years and it's hard to factor in time to create....even though I've been yearning to do so (man, that sounds corny). And things happen, good things, bad things and they both take up brain space. I know, it all sounds like excuses and maybe in part it is but I'm about to dip my toe back into the water before diving in later this Summer (Winter to my Northern Hemisphere friends) and that's a pace I can handle right now. In 2013 I'll be stepping right out of my comfort zone and that excites me.
