Back in the Saddle Again!

I tried and tried during January - but not until today did I get my "stuff" together.  I attended a Stampin Up cardmaking workshop yesterday - and that jump started my mojo enough for me to get in my craft room today.  Actually, I think what really helped was having a talk with myself about suffering and feeling miserable - what good is worrying about how much pain meds I feel I have to take - if it isn't enough to help.  So today I took what was necessary to help the pain - and remarkably - once the pain was removed - I felt better - and I felt creative!  I cleaned
up my crafting space - put the finishing touches on 2 cards - and built 2 cards around a colored image.  I also stamped a few images and cut the shapes of and for around them.  A very productive day!  Here are 3 of the 4 cards I made - the 4th is in the previous post. 


  1. These cards are great! And I am so glad to hear that you are feeling better! No one can feel creative when they are in pain! And I also wanted to offer my suympathy on the loss of your pet. Been there, done that, so I have a lump in my throat as I write this. Pat Kinkaid

  2. Ronni - some great coloring here! So glad to see your mojo is coming back. I totally understand what you mean about the balance between the physical relief and emotional distress from the pain meds. Just do what you have to, within the doctor's direction, and don't worry about the rest. Lisa
