Feeling Down Today

I'm not sure what it is, but I'm missing Joey terribly today and feel really blue. I'm trying to fight it by creating a bit. It has helped a little. But I think I'll just curl up with a good book for a while and try to shake it that way. :( Don't know why it hits like that out of the blue, but it bothers me when it's a beautiful day and everyone around me is happy and I'm not. It's kind of an uncomfortable feeling--like I'm lost in a crowd. Hopefully it will pass.

Still playing along with Stamptoberfest at 2Peas. Here's my creations today:

A Halloween card using the Frightful line from Little Yellow Bicycle:

And this "together" card using the Bella Vita stamps and products from Little Yellow Bicycle:

Well, I'm off to go and read. We're reading a new book for book club, and I haven't started it. Not wanting to. Probably part of the way I'm feeling today. Maybe I'll try and read something lighter. Hopefully I'll get to do some more stamping tomorrow. I really love it. Something about inking up an object and making a work of art that makes me feel better. :) See ya around!

  4. Sorry you are feeling down today :(

    Your cards look great thou!

  5. I was having a hard day a while ago, and my mom said to me, "after the trials come the blessings . . . and after the blessings come the trials." It didn't comfort me too much, but I knew that my mom understood me and loved me. Know that you're loved too. I miss you.

    I hope your book is good.

  6. Jen,
