Well if you visited my desk last week you will see that not much has changed! Yep! My mojo has taken a holiday! :(

To be honest I've not done ANY crafting at all this last week, simply been up to my neck in 'life stuff'!! and not been handling things very well either, the old Depression and self doubt have kicked in severely this past week and I've been struggling a little.

Trying my damnedest to sort things out with the mortgage company so I can keep the house, have job centre appointment, lawyers appointments, job training appointments, doctor's appointments.....aaaahhhh!!! I NEED a holiday!! *eeks*!!

Anyways.....on a lighter note... if you pop over to Julia's you can have a look and see what's on other people's desks this week! Take part in a GIANT blog hop and just chill for the day! :D

One other note before I go....Just thought I'd show off my prize ... :D Yep! I won The Artistic Stamper's monthly blog challenge  !!! Something nice happening to me for change !

Sorry this post isn't as short as it should be....just needed to 'vent' a little today!

Take care everyone, thanks for visiting and have a happy WOYWW

Vent all you like - the support on this network is amazing. It has helped me through a rough couple of weeks as well.
You are stronger than you realise, imagine what you have lived through recently and you're still going and fighting for what you love.
Sending you love, hugs and positive vibes through the they are coming through right now.......

We definitely all need to vent from time to time, sounds like you have a ton of stuff on your plate, really hope you can get it worked out. Great new stamps to play with when you're ready.

Well that lovely prize will keep you going for a while...and then remember kiddo...everything you've been been through it...anything you're stuck in currently, you'll get through it. Vent here,, heck, we might even be able to help. all these're so in demand!!

Queen Of Toys said...

Great prize you have there, now if your mojo is gone paint a journal page any colour you like, even black if you have too and then just start writing all the stuff you are thinking about, randomly stamp and draw, it really does help...... Don't let the depression eat at you, take it out in the art room, or talk to us.
