A Few Things

Well, I had one of the most difficult counseling sessions in my life! It was grueling, stressful, anxiety inducing, and CRAPPY! But, I feel better now. So, here's the low down. I still have more to work through and I have another session on Monday. My mind is a little wound up right now with dealing with myself. I have this amazing way of coping with things by pretending they don't exist and pushing them away. All that stuff, 26 1/2 years to be exact, has caught up with me. Drat! It has reared it's ugly head in the form of severe depression. It has affected my physical body as well as my mental state. My councilor's name is Helen Bair. She is seriously a life saver. I can't express to you how much she has changed my life.  Any who, she has patiently lead me through this and really helped me. I remember years ago when I when I had so much turmoil inside and I would break things in our home to get it out.  We went through some nautical decorations, 4 potted plants, and one telephone that year;) It feels like a battle that will never end, but I just keep fighting.
My real point is, I have to let go of something because right now I am really emotionally drained. So, you are going to get a bunch of easy, low maintenance crafts (that means they are easy,  dirt cheap, and don't require my brain) that are helping me wind down and get ready for round 2 of another session. Hopefully, when I am done on Monday I will be a new woman!

If you would like to do a guest post this week, I would gladly take it. Do a tutorial or just tell the readers about yourself. If you are interested email me at brenbren13 (at) ymail (dot) com


Here is the beginning of my low maintenance crafts.
I saw THIS post from  House of Hepworths: HoH and was inspired.

I got my balls from Hobby Lobby and my hemp for $1 at target














I am not finished, but here are the two I have done.
