Sweetness on Etsy

You probably know that I love Etsy.  Well, look what I found yesterday!  I just love this monogram pillow by Next Door to Heaven .  They have all sorts of sweet things for sale in their shop.  (And, yes, I did indulge myself by purchasing one of these pillows--how could I resist?!)

Heaps of Hugs,

Thank you, my dear readers...

... for sticking with me through this time of quiet on my blog.  As you know, I've been having a bit of a time with my health and even though my brain has been more than mushy, I've had an order of 5 bears for Silly Bears in Scotland weighing on my mind.  To my relief, I mailed all 5 of them yesterday. 

I think the 5 of them turned out pretty well.  To my surprise one of them, Evangeline, even won a 2012 TOBY Industry Choice award! (I can't believe I'm lucky enough to have won a second TOBY award.  Unbelievable!)  I'll post photos of the 5 bears next month when they debut at the February Hugglets in London.  For now, I'll just give you a little peek at Evangeline.

I hope I'll now be able to regularly tend to my blog.  I started a new medication last Friday that seems to be helping.  I'm on a very low dose, but my pain is a bit more bearable now.  I'm trying not to get my hopes up too high, but I must admit that I have dreams of becoming more like a normal human being when I get on a higher dose.  I think I should keep that dreaming in check though, because I've had that dream dashed more times than I care to remember over the last 11 years.  Oh, well.  I'll just hope for a bit more of an improvement then.

Take good care of yourselves!
