My first post

This is going to be my 3rd attempt at doing my own blog. LOL Yes, I had started 2 blogs late last year. One was called Kindred Krafters and was geared at promoting crafters who donated to charities and/or created eco-friendly products. The second one was Chits and Chats which pretty much featured just about anything that came to mind.

I was really gung ho at the very beginning but soon after lost some steam. I kind of ran out of ideas and things to feature. So, my goal for this 3rd attempt is to pace myself and do a post maybe every other week instead of 2-3 times whenever it was convenient for me. I will feature my journeys in creative production from jewelry, crochet and attempts at sewing and learning new crafts. There will be lots of trial and error, be fore warned! Other things I would like to feature are my adventures, trials and tribulations with my 3 year old daughter. My day to day life with learning to be a good mom and trying not to pull all my hair out in the process.

Another thing that I would like for people to know are my troubles and struggles with anxiety, depression and agoraphobia. Even in the online world, my social anxiety is at it's worst. You would think that interacting online would be easier for someone like me. That's what I thought. I am quickly learning that I was foolish for thinking that. My crafts are my sanity and part of my treatment. I truly believe in the powers in crafting and how it gives me a certain type of calmness and peace.

I hope that you will join me in my journey. I would love to know that I'm not alone. It would be my privilege to show you my world as a new mom and addicted crafter who struggles with the outside world.

  1. Anna I was not aware of your struggles with anxiety and depression. I have not experienced that myself but have supported my daughter through her battle. She went to a wonderful therapist and is doing much better. She has some anxiety with certain things but is doing well. Don't think that I have not had my struggles with other issues because I have and honestly I feel very blessed to be alive and have amazing daughters. Anyway, I appreciate your honesty because it gives me inspiration!!
