I'm still here

I decided to take the past couple days off from blogging. I'll be back tomorrow, I promise...I just needed a couple days to clear my head and get my inspiration back. This has been a really rough week so far. All of the drama from yesterday left me feeling pretty empty inside (I still feel horrible that there were things listed in my shop with stolen artwork on it. I'd never do that to anyone, especially a fellow artist and creative spirit, and I feel so embarrassed and sad that that even happened). I've also been dealing with a lot of hate comments and messages lately, and even though I know to not pay any attention to hateful people, it doesn't stop they're harsh words from stinging just a bit.

I'm sorry for being such a downer today...I just wanted to leave a little update letting everyone know that all is well, I just needed a couple days break to heal and find my happy again. :) I hope YOU all are having a much better week than I, and I'm looking forward to getting back to my blogging schedule tomorrow. Lots of love. xo, Mandy

  2. No worries, don't rush coming back if you're not feeling it. It's just a blip on the radar. We'll all be here when you get back. <3

  10. Im sorry to hear this :( Take your time getting back to us, we all know how hard you work- its okay to take breaks! We will be waiting for you! You are worth the wait :D Sending love and happy thoughts your way-


  11. I'm sorry you're having a rough time :( you're wonderful and so talented! your posts always cheer me up. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise!

  12. Just don't let their words get you down. You are far too amazing and talented to waste any, even the smallest amount of time on their meaningless comments. Take as much time as you need to feel better and just remember all the people who love you.

  13. My week has been rough too. Just think positive, and you're amazing so don't worry about a thing. Hanna

  14. I'm sorry people are such jerks.
    No one can let people get away with making mistakes.. but God forbid the shoe was on the other foot. Ugh.. people can be so mean.
    I wanted to let you know that you inspired me to share the story of my weight struggles.

  15. I'm giving you a virtual hug! Haters gonna hate, but I need you to know THEY ARE JUST JEALOUS. You are awesome and creative and you really inspire me! Thanks for being you!

  16. Gosh, sometimes people just don't think before they say things! So sorry you've had to go through all that--I'll be praying for you that your week gets better!

  17. We all have days that go wrong. Don't let the hate comments get to you. Most times the artist are forgiving because they know that it's not your fault but the company that stole work from the artist. Cheer up things will get better.
    You are an amazing blogger, and one of my many inspirations for blogging.

  18. Gah! I hate that you're feeling this way! Bad days are the worst, but there is always a good day just around the corner! If it help to lighten your day - your blog is one of my very favourite hang outs when I'm having a blue day!

  19. This makes me sad, for the little I think I know about you Mandy you seem a sweet hearted girl, so chin up and don't let them get you down. It isn't easy (I always take people's words to heart) but try and remember that hateful people are like it because they have nothing better to do.

    Love and hugs, Gemma typically.pretty.english

  20. It's makes me sad because I guess you are a kind girl !
    I hope everything will be better for you !

  21. Chin up girl! Don't listen to the few people who say negative things, there are so many of us that love you and are so inspired by you every day! I admire that you're able to be honest about it and know when you need to take a break. I hope your week gets better!


  22. Oh no Mandy :( I must have missed where all this drama occurred, but anyone who knows you and your blog must know that it was clearly a mistake and nothing you would ever intend! I'm so sorry you've been experiencing hate comments :( You are such a bright light and beautiful person. This too shall pass. <3

  23. Hang in there, girl. It sucks that when you put yourself out there people feel that they're entitled to provide their negative opinions. It's so easy for us to say to just focus on the positive comments, but we all know it's easier said than done. Take a breather and know that we're all supportive of you and really like you and the space you've created here:) Hope your day is going better today.

  24. Love you, Mandy! Fuck the haters. They're just bitter and jealous that you're living a more beautiful, positive life than they are! <3 <3

  26. Ditto to all of the above - don't let the haters get you down!! They're so jealous of the wonderful life that you lead and the talent that you have, and they're too immature to just be happy for you and be inspired by your creativity. I love visiting your little area of the web, and I hope you can put this behind you and forge ahead with renewed strength :) LOVE YOU!

  27. You are an amazing blogger - you are so fun, full of life, positive, and fantastic role model! Don't let anyone tell you are a less of a person because of an accident and mistake. Grab a smoothie and smile, chica! Hugs!


  28. Not a downer, you're being honest and I appreciate that. Anybody who's followed your blog for even the shortest amount of time would know how respectful you are of other crafty types (you're always posting about other bloggers/photographers/artists you love along with link love to their stuff)so I'm sorry to hear about all the senseless negativity.

    Keep your head high, friend! You have a beautiful spirit.
