|Navy Blue Anchor Bracelet|
It's been a real boost to me this week, as sadly I am in the middle of yet another lupus flare which has left me unable to function properly and do my day job. I originally got into jewellery making and crafting when I was first ill with painful joints....I am so glad I did as I really think my crafting has kept me sane through some dark times. I think a lot of people have had similar experiences as I have met a lot of people through fairs/forums who have long term illness and get a lot of comfort and positivity from their art.

I am not sure how much I will manage this week....I want to try and do something, but this debilitating and disabling fatigue makes it so difficult. I like to try and get some exercise and fresh air, so thankfully a good week on Etsy (with 15 orders) and 3 orders on Facebook have given me a real boost and the motivation to stroll to the Post Office with my little bag of parcels every day. I have this lovely little selection of charms to play with this week, so hopefully I can muster up some creativity and come up with some designs........
