oh girls..

oh girls.. 
thankfully I am feeling a better.  last week was one of the lowest weeks Ive ever had in my life.
Still cant talk about it here, but Ive had time to mull it all over in my mind and found a way to make a plan to deal with it all..  
dont worry, Im fine, we're all fine.
still blessed in soooo many ways.. 

God is good... He has our backs...
 even when we fall short and fall on our faces.. 
he will pick us up and brush us off and hold us up til were back on track.
So thankful that I have been blessed with a positive spirit
 I can always find a way to see the bright side.. sometimes it just takes me a few days.. or weeks..
 but I get there! 
in any case....  just wanted you to know that Im feeling better.
thank you for all the sweet and concerned emails! 
you're all the bestest!
and some people wonder why we blog???
And soo..
st pattys day is behind us now and the first day of spring is tomorrow and all this snow and mud and cold will soon make way for sunshine and flowers.    
And its time to play with bunnies and chicks!  
I have to admit that I have been in a creative slump.. no inspiration..   Ive dug through all my eastery craft supplies and looked through pinterest of which I have at the moment over 550 things pinned on my easter board!  but still as cute as so many things are, nothing has really excited me!  (that is a depressing thing!)
And then this morning... I clicked onto Kim K's blog and saw these!  two of the chicks are by Laurie at magpie ethals and kimmies is the one in the middle...
omg.. are they the cutest darn things ever? 
Guess what i'll be making soon!?  
As soon as I finish this post and do a little blog hopping, I'll be clearing off my messy craft table and pulling a few things out.. then I'll be ready to start making some chickies of my own when I get home tonight!
For now I'm off to do some quick blog hopping..   have a great day bloggy pies!

HI Viv. I thought something was up when I saw that you had deleted a post. I am sorry that things weren't going well. You do sound like you are doing better. I will be thinking of you and sending happy thoughts your way. You will be making cute Easter thingies- that's a happy thought for me!

Susie said...

Viv, There can be a power to positive thinking. Stay strong. I like your Easter things. Those little puff ball creatures are cute. Blessings to all, xoxo,Susie

I am happy to hear you are feeling better! Your blog inspires me to get those darn tubs out of the attic:) Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!

So glad to hear you are feeling better! I've been feeling a little "blue" lately too... I don't blog about it....I just don't blog :( but like you I seem to be able to find my way may take a few days but...can't wait to see what you create tonight!

Musings from Kim K. said...

I hope your day at work zips by so that you can get home and play tonight. Prayers and virtual hugs coming your way. Happy "almost" spring!

Thinking about you Viv. A plan is good, a way forward. You are one of the most creative souls out there , I hope the funk lifts soon.

I'm sorry you had such a bad week, Vivian. I try to look on the positive side of things, too, although it can be hard sometimes. I've not been feeling very creative either, although there was something I saw on Pinterest I'm going to give a try. We'll see how that goes and maybe it will get me going again!

Sally Annie Magundy said...

So glad to hear you're feeling a bit lighter and brighter Viv!

Can't wait to see what craftiness springs forth from your bunny and chick workshop!

Happy joyful Spring! xo

Viv, you are my sunshine on a cloudy day! Your spirit inspires me to be a better and more positive person and I am glad you are a part of my blogging life. God is good...He loves us all so very much. So I know you must be one of His favorite "Pies." I can see Him smiling down on you and saying "Oh, Vivi Pie."

Stephanie said...

My deepest concerns generally have to do with my family, and they read my blog. So many things I have to be quiet about. Thankful for you.

God is good to give us both positive, happy spirits and a sense of humor! Whew!

Your post made my day! So glad to see you are working through it all. Love those chicks, and know yours will be too darling for words!

Debby said...

So sorry that you had such a week. You do have a positive attitude. I hope it will help to mend the fences, so to speak. I was worried. My week hasn't been the worse but certainly not the best.
Love the little spring chicks. So cute. I am ready to find my chicks and bunnies. Some are MIA.

Diane Mars said...

Viv, If there is anything I can do please send me an e-mail and I will give you my phone number. I hope things are looking can be full of ups and downs, and sometimes there is not a thing we can do it's a wild ride. Big Warm California Hug ox, Diane

Lisa said...

Oh Viv. I hate that you've been feeling down. I hope things turn around real soon and you are back feeling happy and creative.
You and your blog are like sunshine in my life. I look so forward to coming here and seeing what you are up to.
Sending big hugs and a smile your way!


Indeed, God has our backs and hold us dearly in His Hands:)
Crafting is so good for us and happy to hear that you will be making some cute Easter/Spring things!

Hi girl,
Thank God that He is always there for us!! I have been to heck and back the past couple of weeks! Watching someone you love hurt so bad and not being able to do a thing to take that hurt away is the hardest thing ever!! Hugs and prayers for you! Unspoken requests for our family too! Hang in there! God is Good!!! God Is Great!

Oh, Viv- I don't know what you are going through but I am so sorry. I am like you- you can knock me down but I come back up with a positive attitude. We are the warriors-people like you and I. Not only do we hold ourselves up we support others that need it. God has given us the grace to accept defeat when we have to and smile as we overcome it- xo Diana
