This has been one of the toughest weeks of my life. Thank you for all your prayers and kind words. They have made a difference. I am definitely feeling better. I haven't replied to everyone yet, but I will don't worry. I've started to, but then I just get too sad. I dreaded even putting it on my blog but I think it helped with the healing and your comments were so caring.
I decided to go ahead and do a sale in my shop. First one ever! If Eloise doesn't sell this week, then I am taking her off-line and keeping her. She's my favorite. I need to clear some space for my "fall line" seriously, I have more ideas than I have room for. You would think that my brain would shut down in the creative area but it hasn't. In fact, it's a diversion from constant sadness. Each day has been a battle with despair but yesterday and today have been much brighter. It helps to know you guys are cheering me on.

We are in town. I need to see you while we're here, as I have something for you. I think we're planning some sort of get together on Sunday night, and we would love if you came over to the Hellmuth's.
