April Showers

Weather has been crazy.  Even after a mild winter here in Utah, Spring is giving us a run for it. Today started off nice and in the 70's but by this afternoon wind gusts up to 70 mph and possible snow.  Nuts.

Here are some of my new creations even though I've been ill most of the time.

Made my Kitchen Aid a Dust Cover

Made my youngest dance slippers they have leather on the balls and heals.

Its your Birthday

Happy Birthday to my best friend, companion, lover, husband.  He is 50 today.  So I wracked my brain thinking of something I could make him.  This is what I came up with.

Finding the joy in everything

Some days are just harder than others to get motivated. Even getting out of bed is a battle and I know I'm not the only one.

Finding the joy in everything is a hard mindset to get around.  Especially when you suffer from depression.

Yes I enjoy my Family & Friends. Yes I enjoy my two German Shepherds. Yes I enjoy all the needle art creations I make.  Yes I enjoy my Essential Oils. Yes I enjoy the beauty of Utah.  Yes I enjoy writing a blog or in my journal.

But yet some days are just so bad that getting to the next hour is a struggle. I guess there is only so much the joys above & medications can do before the mind gripping depression blocks the joy from entering into your brain.

Its hard being defective. I guess on some days you just have to find the joy that being defective is okay.

Here are some of the joys in my life.  Thank you to all that help me find those joys.

A New Year a New Me!

Being sick all the time really sucks!

My New Year's Resolution is to have a new mindset on how I deal with being chronically ill.  I need to beat the depression that comes with not being able to do much.

Last year I was able to alleviate some of the doldrums with Quilting, Knitting, & Crocheting as a way to remain on the planet.

This year, in addition to crafting, I am using doTerra Essential Oils in a diffuser as a natural therapy.  I am hoping it will eliminate some of the synthetic medications I am on.

So far I have been able to cut out all of the over the counter meds.  One day I hope to be off of all my prescriptions as well.  I am really enjoying the Essential Oils.  They really have been working to lift my spirits, not to mention curbing my migraines, arthritis, & stomach problems.

I highly recommend this therapeutic approach.  I have attached some great methods that have worked on my entire family.  I especially love the OnGuard toothpaste & the Deep Blue Rub.

Here is a link if you are interested in trying some oils.

Oh and here are a few of this years craft creations.
