I am feeling a million times better today. I think I just needed to get that out of my system. Thank you for all the encouraging comments. They truly helped. My favorite was from Tracy, where she named pretty much anything and everything that could go wrong with "plan B". It actually made me laugh, because that is exactly how I think! There will always be something to freak out over. The key for me is going to be keeping the freakouts to as small a time frame as possible and making sure they are few and far between. So I have been a little stressed out over the last few days, so what did I do? (I know you are thinking shopping, but no, I have been banned from using the checkbook again until well after Christmas!) No, I didn't shop. I did some crafting. I made a lot of jewelery yesterday and today. Beading helps me calm down and takes the focus off of what is bothering me. I made ten bracelets and six pairs of earrings. Some of them turned out quite cute. I also have been working on these scrapbook picture frames that you hang on the wall. They are done on a piece of artist's canvas, which I painted and embellished. I left photo mats empty because it is a gift for someone and they can put their own photo in. I am going to make a couple of these with some Chinese characters on them that say "love", or "hope", and possibly "family". I really like the way they turned out. I am going to make one for Sophie's name, on mint green and lavendar, with a Chinese character on it. Probably "Love". Anyway, I am much calmer today and am sitting here listening to Christmas music and making more bracelets. I hope I can sell all of these!
