This quote says it all for me:
"I do not understand how anyone can live without one small place of enchantment to turn to."
My small place is my studio area in the corner of my living room. My Whimcees are all the dolls, bears and other creatures that I sew from cloth or sculpt from clay, the cards and papercraft projects that I create.
It is with this blog I hope to share my world created in my small space.

Unintentional But Card Reflects Life
It wasn't intentional, but today it occurred to me that my card reflects my life. Me against the County, the system, Social Security, etc. Having a child with disabilities is a never-ending battle, especially when one is a single parent. One that is difficult to keep track of, to battle and in the end it is too large. After more than 35 years of it I am worn out but there seems to be no end in sight. The current battle has left me feeling so defeated and without power and it has only just begun. If you want to see chaos, right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing, power games and arrogance in action - with no concern for the client's rights or suffering - these are the places to go.
I'm so weary and it's overwhelming! :<)
I was going to enter this card in the Mo Manning challenge - where the theme is "Anything Goes w/ Mo Image" this week. BUT I ALREADY DID! I fear my poor brain is fried. For some fun go to http://mosdigitalchallenge.blogspot.com/ to check out the wonderful inspiration from the Designer Team's ideas to more than 75 entries! There are still 23+ hours to enter! Wishing you a happy day today with your families!
