Why am I missing?

Hello Everyone,
You may have noticed that I haven’t uploaded anything to my blog for quite a while. Well I’m here to update you as to why …. the following picture should answer a lot.
Yes that is a “Moon Boot” on my foot.

How – you may be asking!
Well I slipped on a bath mat as I was coming out of the shower on our first night being away on the Sunshine Coast.
After my Husband drove me to Nambour Hospital- a half hour drive- not much fun while in pain.  I found out that I bruised my whole right foot, dislocated 2 toes and also broke those 2 toes as well.  My foot has been all wonders of colours as the bruising has been coming out. And I have to see the fracture clinic at the Princess Alexandra Hospital Fracture clinic.

Unfortunately I am unable to sit at the desk that I use for card crafting – so that is going to be a non happening activity for quite a while. So I hope to be back again as soon as I can get to my table – or if someone can come up with a solution that can help me card craft on my bed I would love that.

Just a heads up for anyone who hasn’t had to wear one of these things –
My husband actually weighed it and it is over a kilo in weight. And my sand shoe (my usual footwear) is only 2% of that weight – so no wonder my leg gets tired!!

And I bet if you are a regular to my blog you know what is coming ….. that’s right my quote/saying to make you think!!!
I have to keep telling myself this at the moment. I am only at the beginning of a long path to travel. But its not the end of my journey.  I will return to my normal routine and then I can move forward on my own two feet.

Hope you have a Happy, Crafty, No Breaks kind of Day,
My Name


2018 – What do you hold?

Well Hello everyone,
The new year is only a couple of days old and I am thinking about what this year has in store for me and my family.  There are things that I know about – my DS is starting Year 10, my DD is graduating from Uni in May, I have surgery in front of me but I don’t know when that will be and we have some time away as a family planned.

All of my crafting clubs will be restarting soon as will the card challenges.  I am actually looking forward to getting together with my Spin Sisters (Fiber Spinning with a wheel not Exercise Spin Bike) we talk all things Fiber – and look at new projects that we are all working on.  We also work on other craft projects as well.  This is such a fun and uplifting environment to be in – being there always makes my week go so much better.

I am also looking forward to making more cards and joining in on challenges. These have been so much fun and they get the old brain cells working. Completing a challenge helps me to feel like I am achieving things.  This helps a lot with feeling good about what is going on around me 🙂

So I look forward to seeing you all in Blogland over the coming year. May this year bring forth for you all that you work towards – no matter what that may be.

Have a Happy Crafty Fun filled kind of Day,
My Name
