Love Yourself

Over the years something I have learned is that a very important part of recovering from mental health issues/illness is learning to love yourself. This is something I have had to remind myself of time and time again. I am finally getting there. Finally learning this truly important lesson!

Part of this lesson has been learning to take the time to do things that I love and enjoy such as hand lettering and iPad lettering in Procreate and take more time for myself and to make some permanent changes to help improve my overall health. Least of which is learning to take control of my life and make it what I want it.

After lots of soul searching. Trying new things. Succeeding and failing. I’m getting to the point where I feel like I can branch out more, get myself off of the couch, out of the house, and take back my health both physical and mental and start being the wife and partner I envisioned for my husband when we first got married.

Part of learning this has been planning and opening a shop with my mom, which is actually a craft room where people can come in and do crafts and learn things like knitting, sewing, crochet, macramé, among other things as well as use the machines we have such as a Cricut machine, sewing machine, sublimation printer and mug press, t-shirt press, hat press, laser engraver etc.

We are now our own bosses. I’ve put The Paper Craft Co Etsy shop on hold for now but I plan to make some changes to that as well when I have time and start selling supplies directly from the shop as well as create an actual website for both. I’m so excited to see what the future will bring.
