Just Breath...

Yesterday certainly took a lot out of me. I knew when I wrote yesterday's post up that it would cause a little drama, but I really didn't think it would get quite that crazy and heated. There was some heated discourse that I thought came to a nice calm conclusion, but it kept coming back. I'm afraid it became the thread that would not die over in the forums. At least I met some lovely people and got some of that attention I clearly crave.

Then the mail man brought me my photo purchase from gracedesignsphoto. You may know her better as TimothyAdamsDesigns wife, but she is certainly in possession of her own great talent. This photo not only calmed me down a bit after a few forum jabs landed, but it also so very inspiring. I managed to be her first sale and she tells me that she will be adding many new photos soon, so I do suggest you take a look. The colors are amazing and bright. She is also appears to be quite a lovely person.

So take a look. Take a break. Relax, put on the song "Breath" by telepopmusik and enjoy.

Amazing how worked up some people get over cyberspace. It's not real life folks. Get a grip, get outside, go play with your kids/dog/fish/Wii...and relax. Nobody's out to "get" you. :-)

Mel...I like quirky friends. Will you be my cyber buddy? :-D

I thought you responded to the counterpoints to your thread post(some a little harsh) very well. You started a valid subject for a discussion that managed to stay civil.

I'm not sure I would have been as gracious as you were.

And I have to agree with texastesla's comment that some people seem to be overly vested in Etsy's forums, but that is just my opinion. I only post there very occasionally and I find I'm getting alot more done in my studio. I was very tempted today to post some pictures of all the jewelry I made during the time that thread lasted. That is what keeps me out of the forums--wanting to be productive.
