New Year, Better Year?

I guess you can all tell it's been a while since I've posted. The last couple of years have been very busy for me and have cut into my creative time.

I got promoted at work.
I got psoriatic arthritis.
I got leukemia.

I'm now president of my company. Equals more work, more stress and more responsibilities. Not much more pay. Why did I take it you ask. I've been here a long time and this company feels like home, so of course I will step up and do what is necessary to take care of all my "family" members here.

Now I will admit the psoriatic arthritis was a bummer. It was hard and painful to move and took about a year to get it under control, but hey what's one more challenge in life.

Ok, the leukemia. Not a diagnosis you want to get, but if you have to have it them I am lucky that it is CLL. Which is Chronic lymphocytic leukemia. It is a slow progressive leukemia and I will probably live another 20 years before it finally takes me, so not gonna worry about it now. 20 years is a long time off.

So they time I have been able to squeeze in creative expression time has been spent on crocheting. I have been making some fun thing and some useful things.  I hope to put some of them on as I get them done. I am doing a crochet along with women from all over the world. It is interesting and fun. 
Here is a picture of the hat I made for my son for Christmas.

I hope 2015 will be a better and more creative year for me and for all of you.
