A Health Warning and Work in Progress

So Fall have arrived over here.
With cooler temperatures and the most
beautiful view to the forrest with all the different colors.

and then I went down with a massive headache.

This one is a tough one
not the old migraene but something different
so I had to make a doctors apointment
and the answer was: stress related and a blood pressure
way out of control - urghh - and so the cure is
more medicine, physiotherapy and exercise.

so
I haven´t been able to keep up with things
and to work much in the studio.
It´s better today though and I wanted to show you
some work in progress



I´m working on a private swap


for a wonderful and talented blogging friend


here´s a few sneak peeks


of what will be send of end of October


Can´t show you more at this time
as that would ruin the surprice
for my sweet friend L.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend
and make sure to enjoy life
and take care of yourself.

Tina ♥♥♥

Hi Tina, I hope you are feeling better. It is not fun when we don't feel good. We don't feel like being creative or even be on the internet. We changed my blood pressure medicine yesterday. I have had a lot of additional stress at work and my allergies have been giving me fits. Blogger hasn't been to kind and let me leave comments or do a blog post. It will let me read, but that is it. I am not the only one that has had that problem. I really like my sneak peaks. We are having fall color here and it is getting so pretty. Have a great weekend.

Tina, take care.
Nothing is worth your health getting bad. I hope you can slow down and take a break for yourself.
I think as crafters we bring a lot of stress upon ourselves to do do do and go go go.
My thoughts are with you.

Bad headaches can be so debilitating, I am so sorry you are suffering. Hopefully once your blood pressure is under control, everything will get better.

Glad you went to the doctor. High blood pressure is dangerous. This swap looks like it is going to be special. Can't wait to see more. Take good care.

Fantastic snake peeks Tina. So much lace, I love it.
Have a nice day.
Hugs Alexandra

Lynn said...

Take care of yourself Tina, the medication for your blood pressure should help. I had to go on it last year too, and I think it was the stress of moving. If we could all just slow down a bit more it would be good :)
Your sneak peek looks very interesting, that is going to be a lovely surprise for some lucky friend :)

Suz said...

Tina,
i am so sorry. I have been through the headache and stress routine, migraines and stress headaches. Not the blood but I probably am a walking time bomb with that one. Just sorry you have to go through this.
Hugs,
Suz

Evi said...

Tina, I hope that you will feel better real soon. Stress is a terrible thing and can play havoc with our health....and it is sooo hard to avoid.
Like to see you in full swing again, crafting all your wonderful creations.
Hugs, Evi

Boxwood Cottage said...

Oh dear I now exactly where you coming from suffering under bad migraine too for more then 13 years now. Just had a doctors appointment yesterday and thank God my blood pressure was okay though. We have to take better care of ourselves because we are the only ones that can do it. To avoid stress I had no swap for several months now and I miss it very much, but a day only has so many hours and sometimes we just need a break. I wish for you that you'll learn to manage better with less stress my dear.
Your sneak peeks do look adorable though!
xoxo~ Carola
