It’s Launch Day!!!

Hi everyone! Well after many delays and numerous posts pushing off my official launch of my Etsy site that day has finally arrived! On Friday I got my red seal of approval and the final pieces came together and I am officially launching  Ross McCreery Photography on Etsy. Yes! I won’t tell a lie! For me this has been a lot of work to put together but it’s all been worth it. Visit my store through the link that I’ve provided above or on the sidebar of my blog where I’ve added a button for you to link to my site. Over the next week I’ll be adding a lot more pictures to the store so if you don’t see something you like then come back when I’ve added more.

It was a crazy week last week with sick kids all week. Who are are still trying to get better by the way! Along with that there were doctors appointments, physiotherapy, errands to do, and all the usual things to do around the house. No wonder things have been a little bit off with my body. The funny thing though is that it really wasn’t a week that was all that far from the norm. This week we’ll start making preparations for our trip which is only two weeks away. It’s getting harder with each day not to blow it and tell the kids that we’re taking them to Disneyland!

I also plan to slow things down a bit this week because I’m pushing my body pretty hard, probably a little harder than I should at this stage of recovery. Although I’m feeling good and my pain is under control, other symptoms are starting to really effect me. Not to mention that the pain is starting to creep up. Honestly this has to be one of the hardest things when it comes to dealing with the after effects of the surgery. It’s easy to think that because some of your pain is reduced that you can do a whole lot more. Well I’m finding out quickly that there is a definite line, and you have to be careful about just how far you cross it.

For today I’m keeping things short and sweet. I know this isn’t much of a post, just a quick update! It’s gearing up to be another busy week, and I want to pace myself through all of it. I hope the start to your week is great and I’ll see everyone soon!


About Ross

My name is Ross and I want to welcome you to my site. I’m married to an amazing woman who is my best friend, and my soul mate all rolled up into one! I am the father of two very special girls who we adopted from China & Ethiopia. Together we make up one very multicultural family!

In 2006 my life was turned upside down when I was diagnosed with CRPS/RSD. It was the start of a journey I never could have expected, and one that I couldn’t fight without God. CRPS is a chronic pain disease and it started in my left hand. I lost mobility of my hand and started to experience pain unlike I ever could have imagined. Not to long after my left ankle became affected. I spent the better half of about a year not knowing what was going on in my body and traveling from doctor to doctor to find a diagnosis. As time went by I started learning more about CRPS and all its symptoms that it brings with it!

As I started to learn more about CRPS I felt the growing need to share the information I was learning with others and to raise more awareness. As well I want this to be a place where we can connect and support one another. So I would encourage you to contact me if you want.

  1. Congratulations, Ross! Getting a new project up and running when you are battling daily pain can be a massive challenge. Good luck with the shop, may bring much enjoyment and a wonderful distraction 🙂 XX

  2. Hi Ross,
    Congrats to you on your Etsy site! Although I am glad that winter has finally left us, your winter captures are my favorites. Lovely! Winter, despite its cold, has such a stark, quiet charm about it.
    How exciting to be planning a Disney trip. We took our daughter there when she was young and it was an amazing, memorable vacation! Your beautiful daughters will love it 🙂
    I want to thank you for your kind comments at my blog, Alchemy of Art. They are much appreciated.
    Wishing you health and a good week.

    P.S. Your Etsy link in the side bar worked for me, but not the one in your post text.

    That’s great that you got your Etsy up and running! I think that kind of stuff is difficult, but once you are done, it can be very rewarding. I hope it works out well for you! Also, enjoy your rest period. You don’t want to tire yourself out too fast!

    I can’t wait to read about your kids reaction when they find out about where they are going!

    Good luck with your Esty Shop Ross… and I am so envious of your ability to visit Disneyland. Not something we will probably ever do sadly… it’s just too far away.
    But I hope you and your gorgeous family have a blast there! Take lots of photos!

  7. Liz says:

    Well done Ross & congratulations! I think you should include one of your bird shots.
    Can’t wait to hear about your Disneyland trip. Do try to get some reaction shots of the girls. They would be priceless and such a wonderful memory.
    I hope you are doing well.
