I think I was protecting you from my negative thinking.
Don't get me wrong, things are better. MUCH better. But now that the crisis is over, I have a little bit of depression; trying to withdraw, focusing on non-positive things, crying for no good reason, irritable, suppressed anger, lack of energy, over-eating, starting but not finishing things. Just a bunch of crap. But I can't just sit here in my pile of fear pooh, stuffing my face with toxic foods and grinding my teeth at night.
There is metal to be wrecked.
Articles to write.
Pictures to take
and things to share.
My Valentines offering;
Silver and Copper Fusion Wrecked Heart Charm
Happy Flippin Valentine's Day.
I also have a couple sets of these left;
And for the non-traditionalists;
I normally do not "do" Valentine's Day themed items. Not because I do not like to celebrate love (I do on a nightly basis, wink-wink), but usually the holiday season so completely whoops my butt that I can't pull it together in time to think up designs, create them, photograph them in what is usually terrible lighting conditions at this time of year, list them and then promote them..... BEFORE Valentine's Day.
But this year was different. I was thinking about how wrecked my heart felt at the end of December. I mean, really, really wrung out. And these pieces came from that.
Surely I can't be the only one who's felt as if their heart has been through a wringer, weathered a storm or passed through a very hot flame to come out all bumpy and crusty?
(I hope you're laughing with me)
For the kids gifts, I am going to bake them something. They have way too many toys and gadgets but they have been lacking in homemade baked goods.
I'm thinking these Love Monster Cupcakes from Wilton that I can decorate with the icing spikes and then let the kiddos stick eyes, ears and noses onto.
Isn't he cute!?!
I am struggling with an idea for Mike and I. Romance has taken a dive under all the medical issues and wound dressing and doctor appointments. We are eating healthy so any chocolate or sugary treats are non-negotiable. No time for trips or a weekend away. Not really interested in the whole movie and dinner thing. I just do not know what to plan.
What are you doing to celebrate love this Valentine's?
