I’m not giving up!!!!

Now we all go through stages where we feel like nothing is working, currently it’s my business. I know why it has happened but it has been completely out of my control…

It all started with my I phone breaking! I lost all my pictures and my editing apps. I had no phone for about a month so I couldn’t upload any pictures to my business pages. When i eventually got a phone it was an old Samsung with a rubbish camera!!! So no lovely edited pictures for my page.

Secondly my youngest daughter got hand, foot and mouth AGAIN, which apparently can happen. She was really quite poorly with this and so clingy, so I couldn’t work on any new products or getting my page seen.

Thirdly my son got chickenpox AGAIN, which again can happen. He was covered from head to toe in spots an only wanted his mummy so no work again for me.

Then this was a life changer, my eldest was rushed into hospital with suspected meningitis. We were kept in hospital for almost a week where she was given treatment for meningitis through an intravenous drip. This alone scared the life out of me. Thankfully she was okay but I was a nervous wreck. I developed quite bad anxiety and lost all motivation for my business.

And finally to top it all off I started feeling okay and trying to concentrate on my business then my youngest daughter caught chickenpox. She was really poorly with this and now has 2 small scars on her nose. This I think was caused by the Neurofen I was giving her. I never knew it was so lethal given when a child has chickenpox. So please make yourself aware of this.  I was only made aware the last few days of her having chickenpox.#

All this in the space of 4 months has been really tough and made me question whether or not I could carry on, but I have come so far and have made myself and my family so proud that I just cant give up over a few set backs. So if you ever feel like giving up please sit down and think about all the amazing moments you have created (even write them down)

Now i’m going to try and get motivated and work on all the things I need to do to get myself back on track.

    Hi there!

    I just came across your blog on #Twitter – definitely hang in there! I just started my handmade business a few months ago and had to take a back seat with it as my little girl was born but I’m getting back in to it so sending you some virtual hugs and words of encouragement. I’m following your blog too so I look forward to the new posts!

    Our little ones will always come first so you’ve done the right thing and now that they’re getting better hopefully you’ll get your crafty-arty mojo back and will jump back into it and let your creative juices flow again! 🙂

    Lots of hugs from another arty mummy blogger 🙂

      Hi Manny,
      Thank you for your lovely comment it’s put a smile on my face.
      I have had my own craft business for over a year now but i’m new to the world of blogging. I’m really enjoying it.
      I am currently working on new designs and making my Christmas items and I feel a lot better. I have a few testers lined up so i’m happy to working again.
      I too have followed your blog and will keep my eyes out for any new posts.
      Good luck with your handmade business.

    Sorry to hear of all the illnesses and the setbacks they have caused to your business. Sometimes it does feel that all is against you and all the mishaps keep tripping you over, not allowing you to take a breather. Hopefully these are all in the past now and you may concentrate on yourself and your business. Keep it up and good luck 🍀

    Getting through all of those illnesses would have been just about enough for anyone, let alone when you are trying to get work done as well. You have done amazing and as I’ve told you before, you know the custom is there and I am glad you have your motivation back. Hopefully this blog will help get your name out there a little more 🙂 Thanks for linking up with #TwinklyTuesday

    So much to happen in such a short space of time. It’s so hard when your children are unwell and for them to all get unwell one after the other with quite serious conditions too. You’ve done amazingly well to get through all of that and be looking forward with positivity. Well done. Keep up the good work! #brilliantblogposts

    Oh wow you’ve had a bit of a tough time haven’t you? I hope all is well with the children now and they are feeling more themselves. And on that note I hope you are okay and your nerves aren’t fried too much?! Don’t put too much pressure on yourself, you are doing a fantastic job as it is. Remember to have some well earned you time. Stay positive, and keep blogging. You are wonderful! #dreamteam

    Oh you’re going through such a tough time – the phone and losing your pictures is enough, but poorly kids too is so tough. And I agree, I recently found out that a friend’s baby had hand, foot and mouth and was surprised that you can still get it! Keep up those positive vibes lovely, I’m sure it’s just a little spell and the good times are round the corner. Thanks for linking up to #dreamteam xx

      Yes i’m absolutely devastated about the pictures, it’s my own fault for not backing them up. Yes it sounds like an awful illness to have. I felt like such a failure when I heard my daughter had caught it. It is really common though. Thank you I hope so. xx
