Turning A Frustrating Day Into A Creative One

I have a really hard time handling stress well.

Don't ask... I just do.

So when the Rosehaven Cottage blogs started acting weird this morning (along with many others I found out--turns out to be a blog virus in the template... YIKES) I was not a happy camper to say the least.

How did I handle it? Well... I gave myself a timeout and then decided that instead of trying to do all my blogging business in its normal timeslot in the day, I should switch gears and literally go back to the ole' drawing board.

So that is what I did. I redirected my negative energy into a positive creative focus. It was hard at first to switch over but I really did succeed in doing so.

That was the best thing I could have done!

I was able to create a whole new piece of graphic design work by hand (Hidden "Rose"--can you see what it says in the center?) that is now being featured on clothing and accessories in the Rosehaven Cottage CafePress store!

How's that for taking lemons and making lemonade?!?!

Pin It!


  1. I like it. It is quite lovely!

  2. That's the way to handle stress! It's the kind of thing that tends to come with age and maturity.

    And, it's pretty cool, too...

  3. I love your new pink roses!!! Love your pink chocolate kitties too! Wish I'd seen them before I wrote about Pink Chocolate on my blog.....I would've added you to the featured shops.
