First, the good news. I discovered one of my items was featured on the Storque blog on Etsy!
This is absolutely massive for me. And it helped me feel a bit better after my rubbish day today.
Here's the link to the post, which is all about Parties In The Backyard - and if you scroll down towards the bottom you'll see my pink Perfect Picnicroll in all its glory.
Now for the bad news, which has made me feel quite down today.
First, a bad sleep last night (again).
Then, a crap day at work (surprise).
These were topped off by the fact that I randomly found two hurtful comments about me on the interweb - on the same post, no less - one from my older sister, and one from a boy I used to date in high school and who is still clearly pissed off that a few years ago when he came back here for a visit, from Canada where he moved with his wife, and wanted to "hook up" - she was at home in Canada, none the wiser - I just about laughed in disbelief at him. If you can laugh over email, that is.
Why is it that the most hurtful comments I've received since my foray into social media have been from the people who I actually know, rather than from random strangers who you might expect to take a potshot simply because they don't know me at all?
Am trying not to dwell too much, especially since I have an important appointment tomorrow that I need to be all bright and sparkly for. I need sparkles - NEED THEM.
Does anyone have any fairy dust they could send to me on the wind?
