Hi All,

I haven't been on here much due to life stuff getting in the way, but I will stop in when I can. For those of you that stopped by my Etsy shops, you probably noticed that I am no longer selling there. I do hope to find a place to sell me arts and crafts at some point down the road and will let you all know when I do. 

I am dealing with chronic illness, mostly undiagnosed, that has been going on for almost a year, which makes it difficult to commit to much. However, art has been my sanity. I joined a couple artist trading card groups on Facebook and have traded tons of mixed media and hand drawn cards. It is a wonderful experience. I made a lot of friends and have even received cards from other countries. There are fun events like swaps and themed challenge games. 

It is very easy to get depressed and give up hope when you are battling chronic illness, especially when it is primarily "invisible", "undiagnosed" or "misdiagnosed" and doctors don't have the answers. I feel like as long as I have the ability to make art is some form, I can still have hope. 

One of these days, I will get around to sharing some of the many Artist Trading cards I have made over the past few months. If anyone wants to know more about artist trading cards and how to join a group, comment on this post or send me a message.

much love,
