Stress Can Kill

Stress. It seems to be something that we are all dealing with now in various ways. I usually am pretty good about letting it slide off me, trusting that all will turn out well in the end and that we are all watched over in a fashion. I still believe that, but obviously my body didn't get the message that my head did. So I have a stress-related illness that will annoy me for the remainder of this year and I'm not happy about it.
But, I really don't have the time to deal with crap like that. I have holiday gifts to make and design and larger projects to get going with. So, enough pity talk - back to creative talk. It makes me much happier!
I got notification from Lark Books last night that a pair of earrings I made for an upcoming book's "Gallery" section was accepted. I'm very happy about that - now to find the next thing that I can make something for and try again. You don't get anywhere without trying, and this month I'm batting 500 - LOL. One rejection, one acceptance. Not too bad :-)

Thanks Hans. I did these in late 2008 - it took FOREVER for them to get back to me, but I'm delighted to be included in the book.
