Well, lovelies, I'm not gonna lie. This has been a very difficult week for me. Dealing with a lot of really gross stuff from my past, but hopefully this is the final stage of that; or at least, final stage of dealing with it in a public forum. Personally, I know very well that the repercussions of my horrific childhood will go on for the rest of my life.

SO. Anyway. *grimace*

On that note... I've barely had it in me to interact with other humans as I try to process my emotions in the moment (still a pretty new concept for me). Work has been really hard, and I've relied heavily on caffeine to get me through it. At home I have mostly been hiding in my room, taking short but frequent naps and putting what energy I do have into some creative projects. It is so theraputic for me to make something pretty when my mind is crowded with the ugliness of the past.

Pictures are doing more for me than words these days. Thus, the photos and slideshow for my sweet sweet cousins (the former of which, by the way, is sunshine personified, and the latter an everlasting firework). In addition, I would also like to introduce to you TWO image-rich new blogs by vera kate!

Vera's Closet

In which I attempt, on occasion, to be fashionable.

In which I show off some of my sewing projects,
and give followers first notice on sales and promotions happening
in my Etsy shop (still under construction).

I think I might have reached a kind of turning point today, and hopefully will be feeling better again soon. Thank you all so much for your sweet comments and ongoing support. xo -- vera


  1. YAY! Sounds so fun! I look forward to following them.

    Hang in there, love. Enjoy each moment of peace and store them up inside of you to feast on during the tough times. <3

  2. Although I wish with every fiber of my being I could take away all of your pain, I am so thankful that I can read your words and they can express my own pain. Thank you, sweet Vera, for your vulnerability. I am at a loss to express how much I have missed you these past few days. We, too, are experiencing great sadness as we process all that we have lost, all that you have lost, dear one. A piece of my heart is missing because you are not here physically with us, but your words, however sad they may be, allow me to "feel" you again. I love you. It's a fact and it will never change.
