I'm not looking for sympathy here; I'm just putting this out there, seeking kindred spirits and maybe some advice. Maybe I don't want advice, but instead just want someone to read this and understand, or at least try to. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in February, but I've been battling its symptoms for much longer than… Continue reading Still Struggling, Medically and Mentally
VeRajArt artist struggles with disabilities and fatigue; tries to begin work on Project Semicolon macrame bracelets.
Despite debilitating pain, I made some super cute heart pins using a lucet, an ancient viking tool for cord-making sometimes called a "knitting fork".
I want to begin this post by boosting this project https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/good-night-stories-for-rebel-girls-books-women#/ which I think is amazing! Then, I want to say that I'm sorry I -once again- haven't been very active. My pain has ramped up to 11, and it's sometimes so bad I can't do anything productive at all. I got the results from my MRI… Continue reading Pain and Potential for Progress
So... I'm overwhelmed with excitement. About a month ago I found a domain/hosting deal that couldn't be beat, and that same day received an email offering me 50% off of Serif WebPlus X8. I thought it might be a sign, so I bought them both. (Here's my affiliate link so we can both save money… Continue reading The Day Has [Finally] Arrived

I have been dealing with a lot of disability-related problems and so have not been as actively creative as I'd like to be, but I'm trying to get back on my feet. I recently purchased a domain and hosting, and… Continue reading Hello!
This weekend, Ash - of WhimsyBunniShop - and I participated in the Owasso Trail Days Home and Business Expo at the Owasso TCC location. It was my first ever show, and I was soooo nervous. Ash was a wonderful partner, acting as my salesperson and cheerleader, and I'm sure I couldn't have done it without… Continue reading My First Ever Show!!!
I think I'm finally beginning to get over this most recent bout of depression, and I made three bracelets this past week. They're all spring/Easter themed, and so cute! They're $10 each and custom sized. Tell me what you think, or what you'd like to see next!
I haven't been posting much because I haven't had much to say. I haven't been creating anywhere near the amount I want to be, but I did make a wire-wrapped tree of life pendant relatively recently, so I guess I'll post about that. I made this in September (and boy, did it take me… Continue reading
I was very excited and honored to have someone showcase my work at a recent festival in Tulsa. However, none of my pieces ended up selling. Here are some photos of bracelets that were shown there. I may have to regroup and rethink pricing and current sales positioning. Let me know if you like any… Continue reading Festive
