A Little Hiccup

Well I had been doing so good with my postings this year.  I hadn't missed a day at all this year and then this past Sunday happened.  I just didn't have the energy to even come to my office.  I've had a couple of rough days with my fibromyalgia so I made a doctor appointment.  I also needed to see her because I've been having trouble with the joint in my thumb.  Well it's not really the joint, it's the tendon and I am going to have to have surgery.  I'm not sure yet when it will be.  I had X-rays today and then I will see the surgeon as soon as he has the X-rays.  I was hoping it might just be a, "give me a shot fix", but no such luck.  She did give me a shot and some meds for the fibro pain though and said I should be feeling better by Friday.  A shot of steroids once in awhile can get it out of the flare up.  I don't think I've had a shot since probably this time last year.  I try to ride it out, but this time I just couldn't.  Anyway I hope to be feeling better soon.  Thanks for the thoughts and prayers.  I know you are out there even though you don't always post comments.  I know who you are.  I appreciate my readers more than you know.

We got a butt load of snow the last two days and it has gotten cold.  Roads are icy and drifted.  Frank has cleared the driveway twice today.  This morning so I could go to the doctor and then tonight.  It's our first real snow this winter.  We got around 11" or 12" here.  That's enough for me.  LOL!

OK, here is my project and also I want to remind you that tomorrow will be the OSAT Blog Hop.  It starts at 6:30 am EST.  I know there will be some great projects.  I can't wait to see what everyone has come up with.  So be sure to stop by tomorrow and take the hop.


Blessings,
Renee

Spectacular Saturday

Hi there stamping friends. It's Saturday and I've once again picked a project I found on line to feature today. This card really caught my eye. I wish the person that made it would have included their name so that I could give credit. If it is yours, please let me know. I love how the colors show up on the black and what they did with the border.



So simply, but elegant. Thanks whoever you are.

I finished my picture this afternoon since all I felt like doing was laying on the couch due to this fibro flare up. Tomorrow is another day, right?



Blessings,
Renee.

Happy Lil' Dinosaur

Here it is almost 11:00 pm and I remembered I hadn't posted today. This is when I really love my iPad. I had a pretty busy day. I had a cake order along with some cupcakes to make for a customer and then I did a friend a favor this afternoon. When Frank got home it was time to ear supper and relax and catch up on some of our shows. So I will just share the cake I made. I thought it turned out pretty cute. 


I also did a little coloring tonight while watching tv.  It's a work in progress, but I find it so relaxing. 

Well tomorrow is a stamping and prepping day for my class next week.  

Blessings, 
Renee.

Back with Pretties

I'm back today with some pretties.  I just can't stray too long. What can I say?  I'm a girlie girl!  I'm having so much fun with coloring right now and this set is perfect for that.  Believe it or not I didn't use any Wink of Stella on it, but I may still have to do that.  *wink*



Hope you enjoy your evening!
Blessings,
Renee

Happy Birthday Deer!

Well today I have something a little different.  I decided to take a break from the love/valentine thing and go with a masculine card.  Since I've been doing a lot of coloring lately I thought, why not color in this with my Stampin' Write Markers?

This was a very simple card, but I think it's a nice masculine card, something I'm not always good at coming up with.  Hope you've enjoyed it!

Blessings,
Renee

A Little Different Share

Well to have a little different share for you tonight. I had a busy day and when I finally got home I had to rest. I'm just learning that when I'm in a fibro flare up I need to rest instead of fight it and sleep is the thing I need so for the last few days a nap is just needed. I would be curious how many of my readers are also fibromyalgia suffers?  This weather right now is so hard on it.

Anyway, I want to share with you tonight something else that I've been enjoying. Yes, it's adult coloring books. I received a couple for Christmas and today I picked up one at my good friends Harjo's Ben Franklin.  Gretchen, Heidi and the rest of the gals there are so helpful. I love checking out new stuff and catching up with the girls. They are some pretty special ladies. They both told me I looked really nice today, so that in itself made the stop with it today. Love you girls!

Here are a couple of the pages I'm working on and then a completed page. The completed page was done with my Stampin'Up! markers. The other two are done with colored pencils and I dip the tip of them in Vaseline. It is amazing what that does. It makes the color so much more vibrant.

 This one was done with markers.
 This one with Crayola colored pencils and Vaseline.
 
This one with a Heritage colored pencils and Vaseline. I'm decorating a cake and no dish washing involved. Yay!  You can see the last two are a work in progress (WIP). I find it relaxing sitting on the couch in the evenings. I told Frank we've reverted to our childhood. He's playing solitaire, albeit it is on his phone. I'm sure he didn't do that when he was a kid and I am coloring. It's fun to do things that may be a bit different or out of our usual routine. I've always loved to color so why should it stop as an adult?  Life's too short not to do things you enjoy!  

Blessings, 
Renee

More January PP Kit Projects

Yes, I have some more PP kit projects for you.  These are little treat pouches and I filled them with, what else?  Chocolate!!!  These were really quick and easy to make since the kit came with so many hearts.  If you've been following the last two days, you know that this kit was love inspired.  I still have lots of hearts and banners left to make more projects as well.

I quickly stamped them with the PP stamp set and added some interest to them with the Timeless Textures stamp set.  On the one, I even used a some of the new Bermuda Bay ribbon from the Occasions catalog to make a tiny bow.


I know I've bee talking about the Wink of Stella and saying how sparkly and shinny it is and in this picture you can actually see some of it on the L.  I went over all the letters, but the camera only captured the L.  You really need to get some of this.  I know I'm going to stock up on some extras myself.

Well thanks for stopping by and I'll see you here tomorrow.  I don't if you've noticed, but I've posted every day in January.  I think that's the first time I've ever posted every day in a month.  Going to see how long I can keep this up.  They say if you do something for 30 days it becomes a habit.  We shall see.  I hope you've been enjoying my posts and if you feel so inclined please leave a comment.  I love comments from my followers.

Blessings,
Renee
