Morning! Grab a piece of cake and a glass of sparkle because we are celebrating!
This little blog is 2 years old! So in the words of Craig David lets “re re wind” and have a look at how far that unicorn has flown!
The 10th of December 2014 was the first entry on this blog and the first anniversary of me suffering a panic attack and developing anxiety and panic disorder. This major upset had left me feeling like this…….
But then I went to therapy and a wonderful lady restored me basically to factory settings, so what to do with myself now? Too sick to return to work for HM Government it was up to me to find an occupation that fitted around my disabilities. That’s how While Darcey Sleeps was born, an umbrella name for this blog and my painting/craft business. It was so called because I could only work while this madam was asleep!
After a suggestion from family I started painting and did a few test run dog portraits for friends of my daughters…….
This has become the backbone of the business, and for me a dream come true, to paint and get paid for it feels incredible.
For me the equal pleasure is to write this blog every week and not confine our discussion to crafts, we have talked about everything, from colour…….
To make up…….
Fashion (especially hand bags!)………
We have had a good time…………
We have laughed…….
And we have cried……
Through it all, this has been the best place to hang out, I hope you have found it useful or thought provoking or just enjoyed the pictures.
My unicorn will be stretching her wings this year, making more, talking more and generally taking it to the next level, know this for sure, this sparkly door will be open to anyone, 2017 is going to need all the love we can give it and all the support we can give each other.
So here’s to us, and another year of spangly, glittery, emotional, funny experiences!
