I have been really stressed out the last week. I have been depressed, angry and overwhelmed. Yesterday afternoon I came down with something and I feel like s__t now! I don't have time for this and I want it to go away now!! All of it, just go away!

Okay, on a happier note I have been working on my swap projects. I always feel like what I am sending is not going to be good enough, but last night I buckled down and just started making stuff. I came up with some pretty neat things if I may say so myself! I can't show them though because they are for swaps. I am finishing up on the Itty Bitty Swap, the That's not so Shabby Summer Swap, the Parasol and Paper Swap and the Mermaid Swap (that was supposed to be out a couple of weeks ago).

The Mermaid Swap stuff was ready until I saw my swap partner's blog and found out she actually writes books about art. Of course, then I felt like what I made was very inadequate and I went into panic mode. Now I have decided that I did something really different than I usually would, I tried my best, I like what I made and so it will be in the mail tomorrow with a positive attitude!

After those swap items go in the mail tomorrow I have to work on the Etsy for Charity monthly challenge project, the Vintage Cowgirl Swap and on my Brown Paper Bag Swap stuff. I still need to send a tag to Lori from Pink Faded Roses for her son's "Going into the Military Tag Tree" she is making for him.

I also have to clean, clean, clean. We are having someone look at our place on June 10th and it has to be clean and organized. I have a lot to do, so I don't have time to be sick, damn it!!

Have a wonderful Sunday!!

You are funny. I look at the stuff you make in total amazement. I really admire the work you accomplish. I can't imagine feeling it is inadequate. They are beautiful, just like you.
Love you and sending healthy hugs!
