Back in blogland

I've been a bad blogger recently, haven't posted anything and haven't really been in a crafty frame of mind.  It's a combination of things really, and I seem to have slipped into feeling a bit miserable.  It's been a whole combination of things, six months down the line my husband still hasn't found another job and it's affecting both of us.  He's not sleeping well and I'm just plain worried about him I guess.  Our daughter was pretty poorly at the beginning of the month with food poisoning, the weather's turned miserable, a close friend of the family died aged just 64 and work is just full on at the moment for me.  So I've been feeling a bit 'down in the mouth' but yesterday I received something in the post that brought a smile to my lips
A package of rather lovely craftiness all the way from sunny California!  I won a giveaway from Rinda over at Gallo Organico a little while ago and this is packed full of new papers and stamps and all manner of lovely things.  Just what I need to get my scrapping mojo back on track.
Hopefully this will help me turn the corner and back to regular blogging !

If the package doesn't brighten your day, then I am sure Karen's comment will! lol!
I hope things improve for you soon, it is very hard when husbands are stressed, I am living with one who is at the moment too - take care Deb :-)

I actually have been wondering where you were Deb and I'm sorry to hear of your troubles. Rinda's package arrived at a good time and I look forward to seeing what you make with all your new things :) Take care.

no fun with a stressed husband, I too have one of those and sometimes I just want to throttle the life back into him! but then we have a few moments of fun and laughter and I know he is still there somewhere justa little bogged down!

Sorry to hear things have been difficult lately. I hope the parcel bring the smiles back and that you have creative fun with whatever loveliness you found inside.
Take care of yourself and I hope that better luck is just round the corner for you and your family.

So sorry to read you've been feeling down lately (and I'm sorry I'm a bit behind on my blog reading so only just seeing this!). It's amazing how a nice bit of post can cheer you up isn't it? I hope things are looking up for you at the moment. x
