I’m Here (sort of)

Hi everyone!  I just wanted to pop in and let you know what’s going on in my little world…pretty much the entire month of September has been spent battling pain.  Off and on, totally sudden attacks of pain.  Finally (I’m stubborn), I went to the doctor last Tuesday, on Thursday I was diagnosed (gall stones) and on Friday morning I was in surgery to remove my gall bladder.  It was all very quick, which I am thankful for!  Unfortunately, I developed an infection, and was unable to eat anything,  and went back at the doctor Tuesday.  Finally the infection is gone, the soreness in my throat is easing away, and slowly, I am beginning to eat again.  They told me this surgery was a simple one and that recovery would be quick and easy.  Poo on them!  I never want to have surgery again!  I can’t imagine the people that go in for plastic surgery over and over again…no way baby!  Anyway, I’m hoping that by next week, I’ll be feeling somewhat normal again, and I’ll be able to share the fun projects I had done.   This has been the first day I’ve even been to the computer since last Thursday!  I miss crafting, I miss blogging, and I miss you all!!

I hope you are all having a wonderful week and have a great weekend.  Thanks for being patient!!

love ya!

Hey everyone!!!  Just wanted to let you know that  I have lots of projects to share, but unfortunately, my husband took the camera for his fishing trip, so I am unable to download any pictures.  Sorry! I know it’s been boring around here, but in a few days, I’ll be able to share the fun with you.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you’re all having a great weekend.

Wood Candy Corn

I first saw these on Etsy, (cute ones here) and knew I had to make some for myself…they are so cute…and, while I don’t celebrate halloween, I do absolutely LOVE Autumn.  I know, I know, it’s only September 3rd, but I can’t wait for all the warm Autumn colors and the yummy foods.  The weather here is starting to cool and I’m definitely ready for some football…so here we are:

I figured it I was making one set, I might as well make four. Smile  The itty bitty set is only 3 1/4” at it’s highest point.  I made that for my good friend (also my hair stylist), hoping it’d be small enough to fit at her hair (or nail) station, without taking up too much valuable space.  I really love the pop of color in my house!  And, I totally acknowledge that the shapes aren’t the same…I was having blade issues on the scroll saw, and finally gave up.  Enough fighting that darn thing already!  So, they are each ‘unique’…but that’s ok with me!  They make me smile.

Thanks for stopping by!  I love, love, love to get comments…please let me know you were here.
