Aww Sue @SueTrevor…sending you loads of love. I don’t know what advice to offer (seeing as I’m not too good at sorting myself out) but I do know that when I force myself to make something…I usually perk up a little bit. Are there any new fairs that you can look into this year, maybe something new would inspire you? I’ve only booked up two fairs so far this year and part of me just doesn’t care at all…lol! Sometimes it’s nice just to take the pressure off for a while! Is there anything you could watch on TV whilst you are working that would take you mind off of things? guilty please is…Shhhhhh…Teen Mom! Just try not to beat yourself up about the way you feel and try not to worry about how long it will last…This Too Shall Pass xxx

@MaxPringJewellery Yay! Just popped in to report a visit from the elusive sales fairy, first this month, tried to grab her and send her on, but she was too quick for me! Sorry! Next time I’ll leave out the gin, that should do it! Lol

I don’t feel as though anything is going to work, and I may stop visiting here until my negative feelings have gone. It brings down all the joyfull things that do go on here.

All the best for Monday @OrchardFelts; thinking of you @SueTrevor; great news for you @TheChrisArtist and well done @MaxPringJewellery.
Please put me down for a sale @MaxPringJewellery - a pig brooch; wonder where the inspiration for that came from :grinning:

Morning lovelies - all caught up to here - here’s mine for today… still stormy and gloomy here in darkest Norfolk today, so felt my Shipping Forecast print would fit the weather theme! :slight_smile: x

(Deborah Jones) #431

Morning all,
Not got a listing yet as can’t edit my pics Snapseed seems to have crashed, it took me a year to learn how to use it now it has died. What app do you peeps use? Tech issues like that are enough to make give up.

Can I add 1 to the tally please Max @MaxPringJewellery congrats on your assignment success.
Sue, don’t leave us, we are here for the good times and the bad. @SueTrevor

Helen @PocketfulCreations hope you can salvage some work, it sounds like a very sticky disaster.

Roz, brilliant news, it might all be stressful, but at least you know where you are headed now. @OrchardFelts

Congrats on the commission Chris, sounds life a fun challenge. @TheChrisArtist

(Brenda Cumming) #432

caught up to here…
@SueTrevor sending hugs…we are all here for you and if you do decide to take a rest, I hope you will still come and chat with us…
That applies to any of you who might be feeling down and despondent at the moment. This is a BIG family and we all care x

(Cariad Crafts) #433

Well done Chris @TheChrisArtist

Enjoy your break max @MaxPringJewellery so deserved

Here is mine for today

No Sue @SueTrevor, you may not leave the thread - I love seeing your work and have a little bird of yours hanging on my wall and I often gaze at it when looking for motivation - would have more if funds permitted! Anyway I think you have been out voted by everyone here so you have to stay even if its just for relists or to have a chat. Seriously though - take some time out and do something completely different for a while, inspiration will return eventually :slight_smile:

(carolinefrodsham) #435

Morning everyone .
Please don’t go Sue @SueTrevor Maybe just visit when you feel you can , when you are up or down- without pressure. We want to be here to help and encourage as much as possible . Anyway I need to see your beautiful makes.
I was just going to apologise for not listing everyday and hoping that people wouldn’t mind if I don’t list absolutely everyday . Do you? I suddenly found that the thought of that made everything a bit easier . Feeling pressure all round, from other stuff that needs attention . Of course I would always love and pin work from here but I wouldn’t be a proper daily lister :woozy_face:
Good luck with moving and starting your new job Roz @OrchardFelts Have a good day crafting today :slightly_smiling_face:
Well done on your success with your assignments Max @MaxPringJewellery
Enjoy the weekend .

(Chris Stone) #436

Caught up to here.
Thanks for the kind words on the new card venture. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
Good luck with the job @OrchardFelts
@SueTrevor, you must do what you feel is best, though you would be greatly missed if you weren’t here. Juggling creative stuff with everything else is tough, but I always paint whether I sell it or not because the diversion it offers from everything else while I’m doing it is unparalleled.
OMG, @PhotoFairytales, I love the Shipping Forecast, particularly when it is read by the divine Zeb Soanes.
Love the key ring @SarahDesignsUK.
Great purse @MadeintheTemple.
Beautiful coasters @bluebeezywings.
Great little rabbit dish @thedotterypotter.
Back in a minute with a new listing.

(Chris Stone) #437

Today’s listing: A painting of an old ruin. Not a self-portrait, but Corfe Castle in Dorset.

(Lynn Britton) #438

I would certainly miss seeing your gorgeous goodies Sue @SueTrevor, sending you a happy hug.

(Sarah Thexton) #439

In that case Chris, this is just for you: (I’ll hum ‘Sailing By’ gently in the background for you…) :wink:

(Natalie Ofkants) #440

Sue @SueTrevor I really feel for you, I know a few have us have been where you are, and I can only tell you it can get better! Sending hugs! I have no events or fairs confirmed for this year either, I have sent off one app,Icarian for an event in April, just waiting to hear if I have managed to secure a place.

Roz @OrchardFelts sounds like that garage will be a godsend! Good luck with your first day at the new job!

Chris @TheChrisArtist loving the Corfe Castle painting! One of my favourite places!
