There was a definite WOYWW- shaped hole in my life last week. I was quite simply overwhelmed by the amount of stuff on my business/study To Do list, so I had to admit (again!) that I cannot do everything and this blog was one of the things I shamefully decided to not do.
I have been struggling more and more with my health - with some symptoms that are not classically part of Fibromyalgia, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome was suspected. My doctor confirmed that I do have this when I saw him on Friday - and I think my body is now feeling it is ok to throw even more issues at me, because since then I have become a walking symptom list!
I try to look at it in a positive way and see that it is making me stop and reconsider everything I do. My Tarot business and blog is a big priority, but even with that I am having to take one project at a time and not try to multi-task. I have been editing my website for a lot of today (this is being written on Tuesday, as I am totally rubbish until the afternoons now), so took a break to sort out one of my crafty storage wardrobes. I found my calligraphy set and other pens, which have never been used, and spent an enjoyable time on YouTube looking at doodling/hand lettering videos. I found one on making a Doodle Journal, so I have taken the plastic wrapping off a lovely notebook that had been sitting in my room for ages and just about to take the scary first step of putting ink onto blank page.
My photo today shows my desk immediately in front of my computer screen. The notebook and pens are there ready for action - and the Tarot card which is my Card For The Week (The Hermit).
My craft room is quite a dark space, as it is in the oldest part of the farmhouse - with a sloping ceiling and the original beams. However, it is not as dark as this photo makes it look! There are 3 windows and a bright green wall, so it is a very pleasant place to be. The 2nd photo shows off my green wall, sewing machine table and stripy rug.
I hope that you are all having a happy and crafty week.
