I got to meet a Jenny of Polka Dot Pixie (a personal fav of mine) for a quick 10 minutes at the airport. We had a small window until she flew home from Newark from a teaching event she just finished...from when I dropped Brandi at the airport to get back home to NC.

Was meant to be ;)

I unwrapped (to inspect) and rewrapped HUNDREDS of pieces of original Halloween art for The NHC (Nat'l Halloween Con). All art from my SpookyTimeJingles.com artisans. The BEAUTIFUL Marie Patterson helped me and saved my sanity (what is left)

I had a dreamy photographer come to my abode and shoot me and some studio/art pics for an upcoming publication! How exciting. Andrew's photography skills and English accent left me smitten ;)

My Studio Wide Angle Shot

And truly there is much more but this is enough, yes?

So, I know I act like "it" is no biggie and I flit around like a tweaked up chickie. But the truth is, I have amazing friends and family that support and help me at every turn. I could NOT have gotten everything done without my Dr.'s, meds, friends, family and the power naps that saved me ;)
Fibromyalgia does sometimes knock me out for the count but I am getting better at managing it and asking for help. My point in sharing this is, that chronic pain and illness suck the big one BUT I am not giving up until someday I am pain free and not just pretending like I am.
~Go give a "soft" hug to the chronic pain sufferer in your life.~


I leave you with these pics I just found in my iphone.
I need iphone anonymous..I LOVE this phone!
