Finally, I finished Something

One of the things I love about Christmas is doing crafty projects. I made these Christmas trees
and I just had to share them. I love working with wood, well, I love doing any kind of crafty thing.
I do like wood though, because it makes sense to me, you see a shape, you draw it on a piece of wood and you cut it out on a saw. Then you sand and paint it. I can do that.
This Christmas has been tougher to be creative. A week ago, last Monday, was my Mom's funeral and it was also my brothers father-in-laws funeral. I never expected them to die the same week, so it was a shock.
I feel like I have lived in a altered state of consciousness, for so long, it is hard to come back.
So this is my first step toward doing something creative. I even finished. I am not going to show the things I haven't finished, like the almost finished quilt pinned to my wall I was working on as my Mom got sicker and sicker and now I don't know if I will ever finish it.
So I just wanted to share a bit of my mental health barometer.
If feels good to be back.
Happy Monday!

Oh yay! I'm so glad you're getting back to normal. Doing the things you did "before" is a good sign. I love the trees! They're so cute!

You are so nice Meg, I still think about your dream, the one you dreamed I was still sad, I never want to be still sad again.

Oh, those came out so cute! I'm glad you're able to do crafty things again.

I thought all the quilt needed was the backing? Just finish it anyhow and give it to somebody, so you don't have to look at it anymore.
