Depression can be very debilitating    I've had my share of it lately.  I'm ready to chuck the whole world sometimes.  My life has had some ups and downs of late and they would probably be minor if not for the depression added on top.  I'm tired and that doesn't go away.

I started having some of this while in Italy.  The depression and almost agoraphobic type behavior.  I couldn't sleep without taking something for sleep.  I could barely get myself out the door sometimes and my only communication with the world was my love for crafting with the cricut.

I still love to craft with the cricut but I have a job that takes so much out of me that the thing I most love for my creative outlet gets left behind in such great tiredness at the end of the day, I don't have the mental energy to do what I love.

I'm working on a wedding right now and here are the invitations I have done.


  1. Penny, Your invitations are so pretty! As far as the depression goes, I too suffer with it. Are you on medicine for it? If not don't wait, it helps tremendously. Hang in there it will get better. Shari (cricutrookie)

  2. I am sorry to hear you are having a hard time. I think it has been a little hard for everyone lately. I wish you the best, and hope you find time and energy for the things you love to do.

  3. :( Penny, the chick who always has me chuckling with her funny pun cards. Sad to hear you are hurting inside :(
    Your card is absolutely beautiful! Love the style! me your snail mail addy. I don't think I have it since you moved back to the states.

  4. Oh Penny, depression is so difficult. Please take steps to seek support for this. I agree with Shari, don't wait. You are so very talented. I enjoy your creations and appreciate the time you take to post your work. The wedding invitation is lovely.
    as you say: onward and upward!

  5. Oh Penny, I'm so sorry to hear this. Believe me I can relate. When I first got here in AZ and had to leave all of my life behind in HI I thought I would go crazy. All I did for days on end was sleep and cry. I went to the Dr. and got on an antidepressant and it saved my life. I call them my happy pills. Slowly my world started to get better and along with it my desire to craft. Now my card making is my daily dose of cheer. But, unlike you I am fortunate to have the time as I am retired. Hang in there Pen, try to keep the faith and take it one day at a time. Know that there are lots of blog friends who love what you create and we are rooting for you! As Margie said, you always have me chuckling, and I am so sorry you are hurting. Your invitation is so pretty! Love the peacock, just beautiful. Sending big hugs and support, Joanne.

  6. Hi Pen. Just stopping by to wish you a day of sunshine and let you know that I am thinking of you. I hope that you are doing better. Also hope that you are finding some time to do a bit of your crafting. Hang in there, you are thought of and appreciated! You are in my prayers! Big hugs, Joanne
