These Hands

Hey everyone! How are you? Good I hope. At this time in my life, I'm really going through a hard time. I feel really depressed and have completely lost my 'want' to scrap. I call it my scrappy mojo. It is just nowhere to be found. So today, I just made myself sit down to scrap. This is what came out. I used some scrapbook paint to paint on my hands and then placed them down onto the paper. I also painted the word 'these' and a flourish under the flower. Also, I had to use my sewing machine! I just really am diggin that thing right now! No picture on this one, again like the last one. I just don't feel like scrapping pictures, so I use that spot to journal. Anyways, I hope all of you are doing well and I ask that if you can, say a little prayer for me. I'm having a hard time. I don't even feel like myself. Thank you!!! Yall take care!
Hugs, Aymee

gf, I know exactly how you feel...I've been in a "funk", as I like to call it, for awhile! And, if you ever need to talk--give a holla!! Great LO--keep using those feelings--and it doesn't look like you lost your mojo, it's just gone in a different direction!! LOL!!

I am just learning to scrap, and I thought that I would stop in and say Hi. Remember that every day you wake up you can make it a good day, no matter how rough you feel around the edges it is a good day. If the depression doesn't go away on its own, you might need to see your doctor. Sometimes depression comes cause there is something physical happening and sometimes it comes because of a mental illness.
Take care and you can contact me.

Hugs and prayers Aymee......

Scrapping can be good therapy.....you can put all those emotions on your pages, all that stuff inside, the good the bad what ever...and you don't have to use photos and you don't have to even share those pages.....or maybe even make yourself an art journal to put all those feelings in...something that just you see.....a place to put those feelings rather then keeping them inside.
