Walking In a Different Direction

I have decided that the online shops will be closed for selling, but remain active as a buyer.  Events in my life have led me to realize that I need to focus my time and talents on just enjoying what I like to do, and to give quality time to my family, friends and also, to myself.

However, this blog will be active with accounts of what I do.  Perhaps, even give guidance and inspiration for others who love to create.

Presently, I am recuperating from the physical, and emotional, stress of taking care of my father for years, with the last 20 months of his life as 24/7 caretaker.  I am assisting with taking care of his estate, which is demanding some of my time.  My health is suffering a bit, but I should recuperate and be back to "full speed" with the help of my doctor and my family.  Additionally, my husband has been diagnosed as being in the early stages of a rare form of dementia, called Pick's Disease.  If you research this, you may understand better as to why I am choosing to focus more on quality time with my family.

I do plan to create.  It helps me keep my sanity, and also is very therapeutic for my mind, soul and body.

I will start making changes on this blog shortly.  The shops will be closed by the end of the month, if not earlier.  My blog will continue.

Truly, a blog is simply to pour out our creativity. Does the experience of life, expression of the heart, or a hobby that we field. No matter how small we are doing, can inspire a lot of people who visit our blog. There are some people get successful to sell something through a blog. But more more people are doomed to failure. Write down things that light and you want.

Thanks...I did not notice your comment until a moment ago (today is July 19, 2012). My focus has been on adjusting to the loss of my father, and other matters in my life. I think that creativity and inspiration has been put on the back burner too much in today's social climate. Being able to create has always been a great release of stress and emotions, as well as another way to communicate with others.
