As you may know, I have a chronic illness (or two) and I'm going through what's often referred to as a flare. It just means that my body particularly hates me right now, with lots of pain, inflammation and fatigue.
The flare up is quite ironic given that it is currently EDS awareness month (the condition I have).
Flare ups can be caused by pushing yourself too far, changes in the weather, diet and stress...this one I think is a combination of all, which would explain why it's such a bad one lol.
I always kid myself into believing I'm physically 'normal', and so I tried to improve my fitnes through walking...as it turns out my body would rather I didn't! Sadly it isn't just a case of your body getting used to exercise and pushing through it...chronic illness doesn't work that way...the more you push the worse you get.
But like all things this shall pass and soon I shall be back to my usual rambling, painting, crocheting self, so watch this space.
Peace, Love and Good Health xxx

To use the technical term, I am a polymath, a Jane of all trades, with the attention span of a gnat! I just can't resist learning new things (whether crafty of not). I'm a geek, a swot, a nerd and a non-finisher. New ideas draw me in like a moth to a flame and once I have the knowledge I'm so thirsty for, I then look for the next idea.

So as it stands, I shall carry on painting, drawing, designing and generally creating. It bugs me that I have no clear niche to market, but I cannot be less than me and each one of my creations has come from my soul and
The niche of my Etsy store is the fact that everything in it is digital and available for instant download. I know, not quite the same as saying 'master artist' is it? But I hope you will forgive my lack of commitment to one craft...I am weak and cannot resist the variety!!
