Hi lovely readers,
I've decided to take a short break from writing this blog. I've really enjoyed writing it, but I've had a few explosions of stress in my life lately - some good stress, some not-so-good.
The good is that I started a little business on Etsy making stencil portraits and I am receiving heaps of orders! It's amazing - because I haven't been able to do any paid work in about 10 years. But it's also stressful because I have just a small amount of energy a day and I really have to structure and limit my work so that I can keep doing it.
My stencils got a feature on Cool Mom Picks the other day - which is kind-of the mecca of advertising for hip children's products. Wow!
The bad stress - well, I won't go into that, but I'm having some family issues which will hopefully be sorted out over the next few months.
So, to be kind to myself, I've decided to cut back commitments where I can. So, I'm thinking I'll take a few months break from writing this blog.
Take care, and thanks for all your comments and kind words over the past six months. This blog has been a lifeline for me on some of my hardest days. Here's wishing the best of health to all of us :)
