Pride comes before a fall...

Oh yes, it's a very true saying indeed. After all the excitement of the QVC announcement, I should have known better than to expect a smooth quiet weekend. And Saturday morning, down with an almighty bang, from the highest level..!!!

You wouldn't believe it if I told you so I won't.

Our Maisie did her best to cheer me up at tea, with her dinosaur. loved the sunglasses look.

She had also shopped for an impromptu picnic, bless her.

Needless to say, it has taken some getting over, so I have retreated to the comfort of my bed today, not to sleep, but to put in some long overdue journaling hours. Not for work, or samples, just good old Art journaling, therapy for my much bruised soul. I got tons done, and the fog is beginning to lift slightly.

Enjoy xx

Aww Dyan, Hope you are Ok My soul has taken a battering lately too. I suffer from depression. When I feel like this I always take to my bed and make things. It usually helps :)
Hope you feel better soon, Love you work and you truly inspire me

Ah Dyan. Just sending you an enormous hug winging it's way across the Atlantic to you at warp speed. Your posts show you to be a very strong person so you will rise above this too. So smart to tuck into bed with your art journal. I love your pages.
All the best,

Oh dear. .......Big hugs. You are who you are and you are strong and so valued by very, very many. Don't forget that and remember to value yourself always.
Bed and an Art Journal will help in the meantime.

I have only recently become a follower Dyan but I love your bouncy and bubbly style and your artwork and journalling here are amazing. So sorry you're having a bad time lately, it's a part of your sensitive character that makes it so much harder to bear. Love and hugs for you and your recovery. xx
