It’s been a busy couple of weeks and I have hardly had time to breathe, so it seems. I am still dealing with the anxiety and panic attacks, so I am trying to relax more, exercise a bit and trying not to stress myself out. My medication seems to be giving me a bit of insomnia, so I cut out caffeine after 2 pm (I cannot go without my morning java) and it worked a bit. We’ll see how it goes for the next little while and I will talk to my doctor if it continues. I am not even sure that the medication is working all that great. We might have to increase or change my meds.
I have been busying myself crocheting in my down time. It helps me to relax. Bonus is that it’s making me some money! Amy and I are going to Cornwall in November for a scrapbooking retreat and I am hoping that I will be able to pay for all of it with custom orders. I put up a Facebook page for my creations and called it “Handmade By MaJ” Since I published it on Wednesday I have already received 4 custom orders! So happy! Including a previous order, I should bring in $100.00.
My friend asked me if I could make a hat with the Pride Rainbow. So I adapted one of the patterns I got at Playin’ Hooky Designs and put the rainbow in instead. I think it turned out great! I think if I added a bit of pink in there, it would make a great hat for a little girl.
I found this really wonderful free pattern over at Ravelry. Isn’t it super cute? I am thinking that these will make awesome Christmas gifts for my coffee loving friends and family.
I also thought other characters would look cute too…I saw a few Hello Kitty ones and I just fashioned my own pattern.
We are going to feed the munchkins lunch and then we’re going to take advantage of this lovely day and spend the afternoon outside. I will be back tomorrow with some goals for September. I always feel like September is a fresh start, probably because it’s back to school time.
Happy Labour Day, everyone!
