About Me


I am working on getting back to everyone from PS; so if I have not answered you back I will shortly. I have debated on whether I should share this on my blog or not, but decided that I would rather share and hope you understand than have you think that I just don't answer back in a timely manner. I read something on a blog last night and I was going to share it with you and now I cannot find it, but as soon as I do I will share it. What I read is why I have decided to share with you and hope that you don't mind me going on a little about myself.

I have been married for 31 years and just like all couples we have had our ups and downs. However, in the last couple of years we have had the hardest time in our married life together. My husband had been out of work for almost 2 years and just like so many we have had many issues to deal with. Along with him being out of work and the stress factor that goes along with that, we are both sick now. I was diagnosed with an autoimmune/blood disease last September and there are times when it takes everything I have to just get out of bed. I am so grateful that I have been able to continue working because I believe that helps me keep my mind occupied and off of not feeling well. I still have not come to terms with it, nor have they found a way to help me yet, so I continue to hope that one day I will find something that helps the enormous amount of pain, fatigue, and weakness that I feel on a daily basis. I think the biggest thing is that both me and my husband went for the first 50 years of our blessed lives with no illnesses other than maybe a cold or something little and now for both of us to be sick on a daily basis is quite an adjustment, which neither of have done very well at.

I thought I would share the very first Angel picture that I made a while back when I first started to create. I misplaced the picture for a while and then I made a few mistakes on it so it took me some time to fix it and then I misplaced it again:-/ So now I have it scanned into my computer so hopefully I won't lose it again.

Thank you for taking the time to listen to me go on about myself.

Warm Regards, CindyLew 


  1. Dearest CindyLew,
    I was so sorry to read about your health concerns and your husbands job situation.
    Your angel is lovely...I hope she will stay by your side and hold your hand during these times.

    Blessings Kelsie

    PS: Thank you for stopping by for PS this week.

  2. I know how hard it is to go on about the everyday things if you aren't feeling well. You know my prayers are with you both.

  3. Your Angel looks tired Cindy, like you must feel. My neighbor that lives down the street has the same think and she has good periods and not so goods spells, just try not to stress as that takes you down farther. Thanks for checking in and you are one of my forever bloggy friends. I'm a bit tired these days too and I have a son that has been out of work a year and it does drag you down emotionally. Thinks have to get better soon and you aren't alone. Hugs and prayers are sent your way! Marilou

  4. Oh CL!! I know how hard it has been for you, and I have to say you are amazing!! You and your DH hang in there! After 31 years, I know you will overcome.
    Your art is SICK awesome!! You are sure to be selling everything and next I will be reading YOUR book!!
    I am art confused. I can't paint (as in people, like you do), I can't draw, I can do what I do, but no one will look at it and say "Amazing".
    Darlin', you really have it! Your talent is beyond.
    I too have been feeling crappy. I've done like 10? tags and 5? postcards. and I have like 100 other things going on at the same time, ugh. My 2 week deadline is wednesday, and I will have some things done (like i said) but more NOT done! I feel like after my 2 weeks creating, I don't have much to show for it! i might be again, behind the 8 ball.
    I do have to say, why does it have to be so hard for us!!
    I {heart} you!!

  5. Hi Cindy ~

    Wishing you all the best and good health to come. Your work is wonderful! I just love that angel. Charming.
