Life can't always be wonderful even in Happy People Land

I am not in a happy people place these days. But I recieved this amazing art by Marsha Jorgenson in my mailbox today and I look forward to being this person again. Thank you Marsha for giving me a real picture of something to aim for...


In trying to maintain some normalcy in my life even when it is crashing around me, I am going to the D23 Expo tomorrow with a couple of girlfriends and had made plans to dress as a fairy. I guess I will just have to be a sad fairy. While trying on my tutu tonight. i decided to take this photo.
This is the real me right now. Can't fake it. Can't even try. Just have to live with it. Thank you for all the hugs and support from my Facebook friends.

And so that this post is not just a humongous downer... here are my atcs for another swap with Ally. The theme is Alice in Wonderland and I bought a vintage book at Paris to the Moon and chose and image from it to share. I love the way the blue sequins with the red heart sequin inside reminds me of the rabbit's collar. Looking at this reminds me that I have my creative outlet to help get me through this.

I would look like a dancing hipo in that tutu! Have fun tomorrow! Be a kid for a little while and forget about what's going on.

Things will get better...

I saw your ATCs and totally thought the White Rabbit's collar!

Thanks for going to the expo with me!
Here's another hug (((Elena)))

I know going to the Expo was really important for me because it was a chance to have a super happy day that wasn't full of stress, which is my life lately...I know it was hard for you to do, but I'm grateful that you took the time to make my day wonderful even if you are hurting inside.

I know that it's b/c you give and you give that you are surrounded by people who would do anything for you, me included!
