Reclaiming My Whimsy

My $8.00, "Happy" dress


I have been battling a major depressive episode since December and while I'm on a series of medications to help me better cope with the symptoms, the disease does require that I do my part in the healing process as well.

I realize my appearance plays a huge part in the cycle of mood traps depressives often find themselves battling to escape. I've been making a conscious effort to keep up with the right amount of food, sleep, exercise, sunlight, grooming, and of course, my wardrobe. NO more heather grey, I say!

I bought this whimsical little dress when my CIO visited to get me out of bed and out of the house in early Spring. I haven't worn it yet, but I have just the event in which to wear it coming up soon.


On June 10th I'll be attending the 2011 Etsy Craft Party Meetup where I'll be showcasing my wares, my NEW! dress and a smile.







Peace and healing

Thank you for allowing me to follow your painful (yet empowering) journey as you continue to heal. Medication is good when it's needed. I know.
Each new day is one step closer to getting to where you need to be. Cute dresses always makes the journey more beautiful!

Glad you're back...

Etsy meet up? Nice. Wish they had one in Austin. I would quickly throw some stuff back on etsy and go, LOL. The dress is beautiful. I know you'll be all the way on the sunny side soon.
