  129. Congrats! Feb 2 was my 2-year anniversary with my partner. I have problems with my mood that contribute to my being a difficult partner, but I have been working with the doctor and therapist and tweaking the treatment until it works, and she has been supportive and patient with the changes while I do this.

  131. Congrats again! I've been helping a friend get help for herself and her kids while their husband/dad struggles with a drinking problem. She's brave enough to seek help even though he's angry about it and even though she feels there's a risk he could leave, and a possibility he may not stop drinking. I feel honored that she asked for my support.

  142. I am celebrating a 1 year anniversary of being able to drive again. Huh?? Driving??
    I was in a horrible motor vehicle accident involving a small car and a semi-truck on the highway. The car I was traveling in nearly went under the semi, but hit a rear wheel instead. We hit the semi at about 90km/hr. It felt like a "turbo charged" bumper car.
    Needless to say I was hurt and traumatized by the accident and couldn't or wouldn't drive again. I was too afraid. BUT after 7 months of therapy (both physical and mental) I took the plunge to drive again....now it's been a year. I am so happy my fear didn't control me.

    I can be reached at my etsy shop. PrairieBlossoms.etsy.com

  143. I help make children's quilts for Project Linus. They are distributed to kids who are having terrible milestones. They are ill, or their parents are ... or they have other awful stuff going on in their lives.

    We donors can only imagine the delight or comfort the recipients will get from these blankets, as we don't personally know the kids.

    Thanks again .... and congrats on 2 years with a great Etsy shop!

  149. When I'm not running my 3 Etsy shops, I volunteer with 2 local rescue groups. I'm doing everything I can today to help place 2 labs that need to go to a home together - owner give up and a very sad story. The owners have even contacted Lab rescue who told them they can't promise they'll place them together and they NEED to be together or their hearts will break ( the dogs hearts that is as well as the people ) so wish me luck!

  197. Happy etsyversary! I am celebrating that I finally started a blog this month, something I've been procrastinating over for a while! acardaday.wordpress.com . Already wonderful things are happening and I'm so happy that I ventured into the blogosphere. I blog about sending a card every day to someone, anyone, sometimes to say happy birthday, congratulations, thank you but mostly for no reason at all, just to let them know I'm thinking of them.

I'm so happy I took the leap, so many wonderful things are happening because of it already. My blog revolves around sending out a card every day to someone, anyone, to say happy birthday day, thank you, congratulations but mostly for no reason at all other than to say hello and let them know i'm thinking of them.
