I love what you create and just hope you are able to take your time and know that people like me will be waiting. I think those of us who make things know that during those stressful times, creativity often floats outs the door. It's the last thing we have energy to do. We will be waiting! ...Suz

Sherry Williams

Stay strong, girl! You are so special and need to take care of yourself. Sending pink hugs your way!


Thinking of you today doll as visions of Christmas are in my head. When you come back in full force you have a huge welcome waiting with all of us!


Jennifer Hayslip

Thinking of you and HERE for you sweet friend! Take your time, your creative mojo will be back in full force soon! I just know it! ;)

Tina Slocum

Take your time Sweet Angel,
I am going through a similar situation in terms of stress and emotional overload (since Feb!)
We can only create when we are mentally and emotion free to do so. I really believe that from experience.
You have been giving,giving,giving for so long and tremendously generous of heart and spirit to all of us.
Take all the time you need to feel better and know we are here whenever you return.
Take the pressure off yourself....relax your shoulders and give yourself a big hug from me.
Blessings and care,


Thinking of you, I can understand how you feel I went through a time recently when I just had no drive or thought to create... too many other things running around in my brain and life which put my creative side out of whack!!
Hoping things get better for you!!

Charmaine McLaughlin

Sorry you are so weary but know that we will all be waiting for the creative you to come back. Praying for some "cheery and perky" for you today!!


Met you at SB 2 years ago, I live in The Woodlands so we talked about your time in Cleveland, right? Sorry things are tough for you, will pray for the light to shine in all different ways for you soon. We will be waiting here for you.....

I'm thinking of you Analise, and keeping you guys in my prayers. No need for apologies or explanations....we love you regardless!
Don't forget to take care of you too!

It's not easy going through a rough patch. Hoping things get better for you soon, Annalise. I'm sure your creative juices will start flowing and you'll be creating before you know it...


I posted about the same kind of thing this week. I will say a prayer for you and your family tonight. life is hard sometimes. I think you have to seek out sensory moments. Smells and sights that cheer you up and only take a minute. I made applesauce and felt a little better...hang in there.

I will pray for you and you can pray for the creative spirit to fill you up when the time is right.
I find that I go through ups and downs too. I get so focused and over work creatively that I too have "burnt out".
This too shall pass. Be kind to yourself.

i feel like i could've written this post myself.

sigh ...

let's both keep calm and carry on ... and remember to make time to reward ourselves with creating and blogging ... and maybe some chocolate, too.



Betty @ She's Sew Pretty

Just thinking about you. I think we all have ups and downs in our lives. I certainly have! Hang in there!


You just take your time and concentrate on you and that sweet family of your's! We will be here when you're ready to do your thing again! Know that you are supported all the way!! Sending you kisses and hugs, sweetie!

holly abston

I can so relate to this, Analise. I just love you, sweet girl. I'll be here, waiting to see what new beauty you share with us, whenever you're ready. xoxo

Emma Sather Bluemel

Glad you are back and I hope things start getting better for you SOON! You are in inspiration and I am sending you happy, healthy, good thoughts!

Kim Caldwell

Love you sweet friend. Just take your time and do what makes YOU happy. I will be thinking of you and your family. You are all so strong and loved ~ I know you will get through these difficult times. Reach out any time. Miss you sweetie. . .

Hi Analise...the treasury is so cool! Love it! Take care of yourself and your family and we'll be patient. Sometimes the creative well runs dry...when that happens to me, I personally take that as a sign of imbalance in my life. The gift of time away from deadlines, collaboratives, and projects helps me get things back on track. Good luck!

Big hugs,

Kathleen Eyles

You will be in my prayers. My creativity bottomed out this summer. I haven't "made" one thing. I am hoping fall will be the catalyst to get me going again. Hugs, Kathleen


Hi Analise,
What a beautiful treasury! I need to figure out how to make one. Sorry to hear you are going through a difficult time. You are in my prayers.


Great job with the Treasury, I still don't know how to do that!
Sorry things aren't going well for you right now, seems to be the case for a lot of folks.......hang in there, hopefully all will improve soon.
I'll say a prayer for you..:) Please know that you're not alone.


I totally understand what you are going through. I have been through the same thing. Take care of yourself, do not stress yourself and even push yourself to create. The time will come when you are inspired enough to create again without pushing it.
I am praying for you and your family...

Hi Analise, Your blog and Etsy shop are one of my favorites. I hope you feel better soon, and hope that everything going on works itself out. I know it will...things always do work out. Sometimes it just takes longer than others. Eat something delicious, look at something beautiful, listen to something soothing. Relax and take care of yourself♥♥♥



There's so much more to life than blogging and even creating things. Take all the time you need! If we become slaves to the creative outlets in our lives, we've missed the point!

sonia audelo

We will be here for you when you are ready. Do what you need for you and your family. I truly hope things get better for you soon. You are a very talented and creative person. I hope your creative spirit comes back soon. I miss seeing your creations. They always make me smile :) BTW loved your Treasury.

Leanne Shawler

hey, don't worry about us. You need to take care of yourself and your family. I hope all gets better soon....
