It has been quite a week for me. We had some huge issues at work, with some problems with distributors and communication mix-ups, which really stressed me out! Then, I had some email issues with Yahoo, which had me searching the web for a few hours this week. Hopefully, it's finally resolved. I had the stuffed/plugged ear thing.
I have to say, it's weeks like this that make me appreciate my craft room and my "hobby." When I enter my room to create, the stress just melts away. It's amazing how you can lose yourself in a project, and emerge hours later, feeling much more relaxed and able to handle things in "the real world." I'm so thankful that I have my little haven to retreat to when things get tense.
I also don't know what I would do without my computer. I love the support and encouragement I get from the online community. The forums and blogs I visit and participate in all help me feel connected to other stampers/scrappers, and all share so much encouragement for each other.
Then, just this morning I got a note from Penny Black that my first card as a Penny Black Design Team member is up on the Penny Black Blog TODAY!!! Here's the link: http://pennyblackinc.wordpress.com/ . Please do stop in and check out the blog, see my card, and please leave some love. I, like all of you, really appreciate every word of encouragement! It's what keeps me going. I'd love to hear from you over there.
I attended a bridal shower today for my dear friend's daughter, who is getting married the end of this month. It was a lovely day for a shower, and the girls did a great job on the shower. We have a couple more weddings/showers this summer, as well. How fun to be part of all the excitement going on around me. New beginnings for so many! I'm so happy to share these times with those I care about.
Many blessings and peace to you all!
