Some personal stuff.


Several of my regular readers have contacted me saying that they miss my almost daily posts to my blog. I want to share the following information with them.

In early 2016 I was handed a serious illness. The surgery, recovery and ensuing treatment took almost the entire year. Thanks to the good health care I received, I am fine now.  As some of you certainly know, one's feeling about mortality changes dramatically after an illness that could be fatal. You just never know.

During that time my collecting and attitudes changed and on top of that, we got a new puppy. My main focus was not on my blog and that attitude has continued.

I post often on my Facebook blog with announcements and random artist's photographs and I link to this blog when I make a major post here.

I realize that some of you don't read Facebook. Smart move. That's a whole other addiction.

When it comes to my own photography and my own activities at events, I continue posting here.
For example:

I appreciate all of your support in the past and now. To those of you who nominated me for best blog this year, I thank you. I declined the nomination as winning in 2015 caused more trouble than I care to deal with. I'm not going away. I still answer many questions personally when I receive them.

HUGS to all of you!

  1. Dear Terri,

    I felt you had excused yourself from the nomination this year.

    Nothing is more important than your health and well being. And I applaud you for making that decision.

    Stay well and continue to do what you love and enjoy,

  2. Im sorry to hear about your health challenges, Terri. You need to take care of yourself. I do enjoy your blog and feel that it is one of the very few places where one can voice an honest opinion since it is not run by a cheerleader and I appreciate it. I am not on facebook so your actual blog is the only place for me. But I am sure I speak for all your fans when I say that we understand...take care.

  3. Glad to hear you recovered, wishing you a lot of good health in this year :) I know what you mean, I had some health situation a few years ago and didn't order anything for months, just couldn't care less for this hobby, though I love it so much...

  4. Thank you for posting about your illness. I had an identical situation this year and, like you, have changed a lot of my priorities. I still love creating fashions for my dolls but feel absolutely no pressure to do so. Glad you are feeling better.

  6. I'm so glad you are recovered and enjoying life again, I think as readers we can sometimes forget that blogs are just a hobby and that there is a real flesh and blood person behind them.... who also has a life! ;o)

  8. I'm sorry to hear about your health issues. I enjoy your blog and photography, and since I avoid facebook like the plague, I'll miss "hearing" from you as often. But when any hobby becomes a chore, or a source of negativity rather than joy, it is understandably time to move on. Focus on your health, your puppy and your happiness. Take care, Laura
