Best Blogger Tips

Thursday, 10 February 2011


I have been neglecting this place as of late, I know. I have been busy keeping my daughter company and comfortable while she is going through a difficult medication change... Some days are diamonds and some are rocks. The door is sometimes open and sometimes blocked, but I'm learning not to take thing personally at this time of change and have been just going with the flow and offering comfort and support when needed.

I wish I could post in more detail about what is going on with The Girl right now, but at this point in time she isn't ready to share certain aspects of her personal life with all who visit my little corner of blogland; perhaps when she is feeling better she will allow it. I truly believe that talking about her personal experiences with mental health could help others who may be going through something similar or know of someone who is.

I would like to thank you all for you kind words of encouragement you leave behind either in my inbox or in the comment area. I am always amazed at the kindness you readers show -I feel so very lucky. Thank you!


On my down time here at home, I have been finding being creative has been a helpful refuge for me. I've been creating a lot of collage work and making some Photoshop brushes that I hope to share on here tomorrow. Check back if your a Photoshop user, there just might be something in my brushes you might find interesting enough to download and use on your own art collages.

Even though my own daughter's troubles are far simpler(a broken heart, which is mending)than what your daughter faces, I can imagine how difficult if must be for you, too, having to watch your child struggle and not always know how best to help.
At least you are still able to loose yourself in your creative projects. I'll be on the look-out for when you post more of your dreamy collages.

Amazing that mental health is still so stigmatized...

Your faerie reminds me of the Cottingley Faeries!

You know that you are in my thoughts as we do our parallel vigils.

Love that you find refuge in creativity. Wish I could do the same.

I can relate very well to having children struggling with mental illness. It's difficult to struggle with it oneself let alone see your child suffer. It's difficult seeing they have their own path in life and how it can be a bit more challenging than that of their peers. xo
