So another month over and done with. All in all it has been a pretty good one. During the last month I have had some ups and downs.
I have had another birthday which now puts me at the grand old age of 29! Scary right?! This was the first birthday without my Gramps here which was real hard. Opening my card signed just from my Nan, not having the phone call with his soft cheery voice to sing happy birthday to me it all got the better of me but I just keep thinking ‘thank god he is no longer in pain!’.
Over the last couple of months I have had some serious health issues which could have totally altered the course of my future, or at least where I thought my future was heading, and yesterday I got some great news from the hospital confirming that the result have come back to say what I had hoped they would and they don’t need to see me again. I have never felt such relief like I did when I read that letter! However, having this scare has really made me put things into perspective. It made me realise all the things that I have been missing out on which I intend to change!! Holidays being the first. I want to see more sights, both home and away. It got me thinking that if that was the end I was not happy with what I have achieved. It is now time to set things right!
As a result of the realisation of my mortality I have decided to put everything I have into revamping and rebranding my online store. Keeping it inline with this blog I decided to make it into a brand and I have started to put some of the wall art ideas I have had over the last year or so onto the drawing board. I have actually started to list some new items which have taken off quite well. below are a few of the new items I have listed.
you can find the rest of my items on my Made by Mel tab in the main menu. I am determined to make this a success and I plan on putting my all into it.
I have been trying lately to get back into my crafts and I have made quite a promising start I think. I have been trying my hand to candle printing to see if it was something think I would like as I am in to my candles big time. Dan thinks I secretly own shares in a candle company because of the amount I have! Here’s a sneak peak at my first attempts.
