Edit: on the 'Watch List' at CSI
My page is about what something we rarely speak about - Postnatal Depression... Yes, I've had it after I gave birth to my 2nd child. It was a very difficult period in my life, but I go over it. And it takes some courage, I think, to admit it and talk about it. I've learned so much at that period, and the most important lesson that was learnt is that good enough mother is really enough.
Here's the sketch from Once Upon A... Sketch, drawn by the talented Nadia Cannizzo:
"This is the story of what we don't speak about - postnatal depression. Till my second labor, I considered myself as a good mother, in fact I thought I was a very good mother. After I had my 2nd labor, I thought I was the worst mother on earth. Since then, each day I learn that perhaps I'm not the best mom in the world, but I am a good enough mom, and that is the best."
Here's case file #106 at CSI:
Scheme - all 5 colors are there.
Evidence - ombre effect, arrows, grid design (kind of... the background under the photo was created by placing paper pieces in sort of a grid design), stripes, circles, white background.
Testimony - I used the inspiration words 'good' and 'be' (am..) for my title and for my jouranling (see above).
For this layout I used lots of scraps, mainly MME and EP. I also used lots of Prima's goodies. The photo frame was made with Spellbinders dies and the doily was made with Cheery Lynn's die.
Here are some close-ups on the details:
דף שהכנתי בהשראה של כמה אתגרים. הג'ורנלינג מספר על מה שבד"כ לא מדברים עליו - דכאון שלאחר לידה. סבלתי ממנו לאחר הלידה השניה, ואחד השיעורים הגדולים שלמדתי אז הוא שגם אם אני לא האמא הכי טובה בעולם, אני אמא מספיק טובה, וזה טוב מאד.
תודה שקפצתן לבקר ותודה מיוחדת למי שטורחת וגם משאירה תגובה. אני מאד מעריכה את ההשקעה.
