Just me airing my thoughts....

It has been such a long time since I came on here, so much has happened which has been a surprise to me but I think it has changed the way I'm thinking about things. I have been paper crafting for such a long time but now I can't get back into it.

September I was diagnosed with cancer of the soft pallet in my mouth which was such a shock but it is what it is and I have been through the process of having it removed which has left a hole in the roof of my mouth so I have had to have a plate put on the roof of my mouth with a section which goes into the hole they have left after taking the cancer out.

I had to go back and have that plate removed it had to be done under anaesthesia due to the fact it was screwed in. So now I can smile again as I have a plate with teeth but this is still only temporary but it has a denture so at last I have teeth. This new plate is still screwed in so I will have to have more surgery to have it changed over for my permanent plate.

Since I have had the surgery I don't want to craft any more and I'm having a battle with myself as I have so much stuff and I would like to keep my pen pals and we do something crafty when we reply but I feel like throwing all this stuff away and just keep so very special things which I know I will use. I just can't seem to start the process as I don't know how to sells some of the stuff, I suppose I could use facebook or eBay then having to put prices onto everything!

I thought maybe writing on here each day could help me come to terms with what I want I hope it helps me to do just that :)

Thank you for popping by and reading my journey so far...

  1. Hi Anne, I know so much what you mean about having a problem getting back into crafting after going through a hard time. I am still trying to get back into it since I lost my dad, sister and father in law all in the space of 3 years. Seemed like every time I would start back in again something else bad would happen. But, I am trying to push myself again as I have missed it so terribly much. I have seen your most recent post and am so happy to see that you have managed to get back into it...and what a marvelous display for your first time back. I hope to be seeing more and more of your lovely creations again over time. Have been thinking of you lots lately and how we used to Skype...think we may need to do that again sometime soon. Take care my and hugs

  2. Hello again Anne, trying again to Its good you are crafting again! I felt like you last Christmas with my cardmaking! I have lost alot of my love for seems life was passing by too quickly whilst I sat crafting!!! I cut back and do less and my style changed! I sold lots of stuff on ebay and in the process gained ovely friends....a girl and hubby came
    over 60mls to collect a few items and after another visit she had cleared my stock by £100+ but more important by far they became special friends. Xxx


Thank you for your comments, I really appreciate it. I just love reading what everyone has had to say. I hope you will come back soon...
