In part, I'm inspired by a new blogging "friend." (At the risk of seeming like a creepy blog-stalker, I feel as if the people I've connected with through this blog are part of a new circle of friends.) If you haven't already, check out Stumbling in Flats. The author regularly cracks me up, but in her most recent post she talked about the delightful way a disease like MS (or any other, I expect) can lead someone occasionally to wallow in bad feelings.
I thought: do I wallow? (Yes.) But why? Aren't good things happening to me? (Okay, yes.) Should I post about good things and not just crappy things? (ALL RIGHT! I guess so. Jeez, get off my back already!)
So here goes:
Arts and Less Crap, Plus Being a Demanding Customer Pays Off!
In case you've forgotten, I made a...well, a thing called "Ugh" in the post "Arts and Crap." In spite of being temporarily crushed by the humiliation that was "Ugh," I forged ahead and tried something new. Two things, actually. This time, though, I had the sense to stay away from bits coated in glitter pasted on wooden boards. These (called "Rather Cute" and "Not So Crappy") are pictured below:
|Not So Crappy|
In "Not So Crappy" please note the subtle application of glitter. I learned my lesson from "Ugh." Both items have one of my favorite things on them: birds.
So, all in all, these made me happy.
|It isn't Tofurkey, but it will do.|
So, these are some recent things that have made me feel good. Next post: something embarrassing, I promise.
