Hi Gals,

Today I wanted to show you my latest entry into my SMASH book/art journal.  I have something called Meniere's disease.  It can go into remission for months at a time but for some reason it has been hanging on to me since September and it is really making me miserable.  At the same time, I feel stupid complaining about it because there are so many people in the world that are suffering so much more than I am.  I know that my family and friends get tried of hearing me talk about it.  I have had Meniere's since I was 28 years old, I just hate it.  Anyway, I think my journal is a good place to get my feelings out  so here it is.

This page is called "Wait for Me" and the digital stamp that I used is from Fresh Brewed Design Alice in Wonderland Series and it is also called "Wait for Me" if you would like to see the stamp go to fresh brewed designs

Here is the journal with the 2nd page.

The digital stamp on this page is also from Fresh Brewed Alice in Wonderland series and it is called "I'm Late"  Thanks for stopping by today and thanks for listening.  I try not to talk about my disease too much but sometimes it overwhelms me!

  1. Thoughts on a SMASH BOOK from a scrapbooker's perspective: I would recommend that everyone I know get one of these books. Rather than a layout, this is a "mini" opportunity to just get some thoughts down on paper. It helps you, and, perhaps, others, understand who you are at a particular moment. Chriss, this magnificent. Thanks for sharing this with us!

  2. Wow....what a wonderful creative outlet for you. I looked up Meniere and ugh, soooo sorry that you are going through that.

  3. Your pages are wonderful, love the tree.
