Busy Busy Busy

Hi guys!

I’ve been really busy crocheting up a storm over here! (Literally apparently, since we are having stormy weather today.) I am going to be in my first ever craft fair this coming up weekend! Woo hoo! I’m excited, yet very nervous.

Here’s a look at a few of the things I’ve made this past weekend:

I’ve also worked on some cup cozies, but I don’t have a picture of those up yet. I am going to try to work up a few scarves this week. Fingers crossed I have time to finish all this before Saturday.


This time of the year is really hard for me. There is so much to do! When I get overwhelmed I tend to just shut down. I have anxiety disorder along with depression. Yesterday I sat on my couch crocheting and binge watching old Roseanne episodes. I didn’t even feel like eating. I really hate days like this.

Today hasn’t been much better. I’m so exhausted and I haven’t even done anything! There was a battle in my head this morning over going to the grocery store. My anxiety tends to keep me from doing so much. I know I need to go to the grocery store, yet for some reason I cannot force myself to leave the house. Because of that hour long battle, I gave up. Now I’m depressed and exhausted. If you have anxiety or depression, you know exactly what I mean.

I do not like being on medicine because the anxiety medicine makes me super sleepy and I can’t even function. The depression medicine leaves me feeling like a zombie. I’m a homeschool mom. I don’t have time for that! Nor do I have time to feel like I am now.

Sigh.

What to do….

I could really use your prayers. Thank you so much in advance.


Thank you all for being here with me!

  1. Wow , you are amazing . I exactly know how you feel anxiety and depression ruins your life. One thing I started doing is when I feel I am getting anxious I take the kids and leave the house . Getting out helps me .

  2. I hope you feel better Michelle. Those kinds of days really put a person behind. Maybe you should have gone to Church or just stick to God. He would help you tremendously. You are in our prayers. Feel better soon. Keep us posting and good luck with the craft fair. I was not much active either slowly but surely coming back!

  4. Hi Michelle, thanks so much for stopping by and for following my blog. Hey, I use to crochet. I haven’t done it for a little while now, but I use to make baby blankets, and scarves, and all kind of neat things, and I would also do the craft shows, but now I’m into photography and drawing.

    I also see where you spoke about anxiety and depression. Do whatever you have to do medically to help yourself, but along with doing that, if I were you I would spend every waking moment connected to God. Talk to Him, cry out to Him, pray, read scripture, let it be your food, over and over and over and eventually you will have a breakthrough. I’m not sure of the relationship you have with God, but in order to see progress, you have to be solidly connected to Him…. I know. I speak from experience. I would hurriedly say a prayer, tell others I believe in God, but it was more or less on a superficial basis. It wasn’t until I started seeking after God with all my heart , all my being, that I started to feel His presence in my life. I invited God’s Holy Spirit to come live in my heart, and He would speak wonderful words of comfort and strength to my mind, replacing all the negative thoughts that would consume me. I could not believe it. God really is alive and He is real and closer than you think. I pray that you will find Him Michelle. He is right there waiting for you. Don’t let the enemy stop you with all the negative thinking. He is a manipulator of the mind. Put on your boxing gloves and fight. May you be richly blessed from this day forward.

    1. Thank you so very much for sharing that with me!! It really touched my heart. I have a hard time crying out to God, maybe it’s because I don’t want to bother Him since He’s got so much to deal with. But, I know He is God and He can handle it. ❀

      1. You are so right, He is God and He can handle it. He is “Almighty” so you would be diminishing His power by not asking and believing that He can do it.

        There is a story in the bible, it’s a “Parable of The Persistent Widow” in Luke 18. It’s about a woman who went to a judge asking him for justice….the judge decided to give her justice just so she wouldn’t keep coming back and bothering him. Then the Lord spoke after this parable (story) and this is what He said:

        β€œHear what the unjust judge said. 7 And shall God not avenge His own elect (people) who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them? 8 I tell you that He will avenge them speedily.

        God wants us to call out to Him day and night. He loves us, and wants for us to love Him also. He knows more about you than you know about yourself, He knows how many strands of hair is on your head, that’s how much interest he takes in you.

        This is another scripture that I really like:
        Jeremiah 29:13 And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you, says the Lord, and I will bring you back from your captivity;

        In other words, when we search for God with all our hearts, we will find Him and He will set us free. I will pray that you will be successful. Blessings.
