Catching up and an apology...

Hi everyone.  I just wanted to apologize to my faithful blog readers for not having a new personal kit for August.  I have not been feeling well and that old, mean son-of-a-gun...depression...has been hitting me hard in the last few weeks.  It's terribly difficult to be really creative when you are not at your best.  However, I am gradually working on the first installment of "Music of My Life," which is classically-themed, and hope to have it for you by the middle of September.

It's beginning to feel like fall here in NE Ohio, with cooler nights and no more temperatures in the 90's (thank goodness!).  So, I'm going to re-release a second older (and smaller) kit at the end of this week.  It's called Fall-O the Dots and, like Floral Beauty, is a former PTU kit that features my own photography.  Stop back and snag it!

I'm really looking forward to re-sharing my holiday-themed Victorian kits with all of my new blog readers in the coming months.  We're getting to that time of the year too fast, aren't we?  I have Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas ones to share.  I'm always itchy to do another Christmas one as there are so many fantastic Victorian images to work with.  I already have two yearly ones, a Christmas Angel one, and my contribution from an old Christmas Around the World blog train, but I just may make another new kit this year!  I haven't made a New Year's kit either and I think I will tackle that also.

Well, as I said, I'm sorry there wasn't a new personal kit for August but I hope you'll forgive me and I promise to make it up to you in the months to come.  I appreciate all of you more than you could probably ever know.

Blessings and much love,

Don't ever beat yourself up or apologize for depression we don't ask for it and can't control when it raises it's ugly head. Thank you for what you HAVE done.

I agree - don't be so hard on yourself! This is something that I also struggle with but I have learned to allow myself the luxury of knowing that I didn't ask for it, and try my best to beat it. ((Hugs))

I can be shy about commenting on blogs, I am afraid, but your consistently amazing designs - especially the breathtakingly fabulous Bohemian Breeze, have forced me out of my shell : ) Thank you so much for your hard work and generosity, sharing these very extensive kits with the digi-scrapbooking community. I especially love the breath of fresh air your designs give, they have been unique, interesting and beautiful interpretations of each blog train theme. You have a real talent and I am so grateful to be able to use your designs to create my own projects. Most importantly, perhaps, you seem to be a loving, open person so thank you for being honest about your struggles and successes. As someone who was forced to retire early due to C-PTSD, I can empathize with your battle with depression. I wish you strength!
