Just emailed the Everydaymatters yahoo group about some inspiration for my emboidery. I was wondering if anyone knew of some good websites, yahoo groups, etc that can inpsire me the way EDM does.
I've decided to keep my other blog.... A prayerful life for my drawings and to use this blog to include my other art work....collage, embroidery, photography, etc.
My mood has been good now for over 7's just so amazing. I believe it is the omega 3 capsules I am taking. There is a lot of good evidence for it on the internet. The psychiatrist is rather sceptical about it which is disappointing as I am so pleased about how I am going. I haven't been this well since I was 15 years old.
I've joined in a wonderful challenge for my art work called Everyday in May....participators are challenged to do something creative every day in May. At first I didn't think I could do it as I usually only do my drawings once a week. I mentioned to EDM that I was knitting and someone pointed out that knitting is creative....silly me...I knit most days.
I have set up the dining table with my collages, drawing and water colors and embroidery and I am doing a little bit each day. I have tried this in the past and I usually go into a quiet, down time and I don't do any art or creative work. Most people have advised me to go with the flow but I would love to be able to keep my creativity going during my quieter moods.
Lots of love from Susan in Australia

I am glad that you are feeling so well.

I have suddenly realised that I have not been taking some of my supplements - including the omegas. That may have a lot to do with my mood!

*hug* Thank you!

Ah, Susan! I am so thrilled to have discovered your two blogs and see how creative you are these days! When I last saw you about a year ago, you made me macaroons - and that was a huge effort for you then, I know. You have made my day today. I think you are on the right track with the gratitude journal. I try to start and end every day reflecting on what I am grateful for and it makes a marked difference to my quality of life.
