The artist that did this started creating when she was a child. She made a poster that was against drugs and it was shown country wide. She finds beauty through-out the world. Her shop C & L Creations is on Etsy and is full of unique and unusual, wearable and collectible art. For some of her art pieces she has stories to tell. Like for this piece I am showing you here. Parrot Jasper is related to a parrot that she was taking care of for a friend. Her descriptions for her art pieces are fun to read and add to her shop. Take time to explore and have fun!

More on Times a Changing

Well, I went to see my doctor and she adjusted my Bipolar meds and I think I am starting to feel better. The anxiety is leaving, the irritability is gone, the depression is less and I actually made myself a watch. I am seeing how a new magnetic clasp is going to work out with a cute safety chain.
I am seeing less gray around myself. Sunday, my husband and I are going to the beach to watch the surfers. I love that! I am still having trouble sleeping and still haven not been able to list anything. But I think things are getting better. THINGS ARE GETTING BETTER!!!! YAH!!!! That is a very good thing. The adjusting of just a little of my drug regiment shows me that my bipolar meds shows me that my illness is sooooo biochemical and not situational. Cause I am so happy with my life. I am so grateful. I love my life. Even when I am depressed I know what I have and love it. So ANYWAY, I just wanted to let all you kind people know that I am feeling better. Thanks for those of you that read and responded...even if it was silently.

Boutique Karma

Tara who is the mastermind at Boutique Karma does everything from making BoBos for owies to these eye pillows for soothing headaches. She uses an array of fabrics for her vast ideas. All kinds of color. I would be hard pressed not to find a color that I would not love in her shop. I want one of her eye pillows! They contain Lavender de Provence. Oh my nostrils want the smell. LOL But don't take my word for it. Go and explore Tara's shop. Enjoy!

Things are a Changing

I try to blog about major things going on in my life. So I am going to blog about this because I feel like it is affecting my creativity. I mention in here when I feel like I am a bit manic. It's been a long time since I have mentioned that I feel a bit depressed because it's been so long since I have felt depressed. But the last week or two I have been feeling and seeing the signs that the real scary depression is creeping back in. Now I don't wanna get all scared because it is only a feeling and it is really about what I do with it but, it is also about some pretty scary thoughts that I get. But I talked to my doctor today and she changed my bipolar meds and I called the lady I talk to and she will call me back. I called her just to "touch base". So I am getting all my ducks in a row in case the BIG SCARY happens and I start to lose my way.

It's effecting my shops and my art in that I am not doing anything except going through email and blogging and I am not doing anything creative. I am not even listing. This watch that is waiting to be listed is sitting looking at me from my desktop. But I am not beating myself up. It has been almost 2 years to the month that I have had a swing down so I feel blessed and this might be a small burp. I sure hope someone is reading this that can relate. Can anyone relate? Is anyone out there? Can you write in the comments section? Can you let me know?

A Little About Me

I know that your probably not interested in this but this is my work space...or most of it. This is where I make my earrings and watches for my shops. These is part of the process I do sitting under the lamp on the couch but that is a very small amount. Yes I know it is mess and you wonder how I keep track of my beads. This was most likely at the end of a project when everything is messy. LOL NO, I was not about to put myself in the picture. Anyway, that is a bit about myself.
