I'm Back - Finally!!!




I am not completely recovered yet, but I have been able to sit in my bed and actually create some journal pages! YAHOO! Just to let you know ~ I hope I never have to go in for surgery again!!! Wow, the recovery process really is yucky! It was really strange the past few weeks I have felt such a strong tugging in my stomache, abdomen area, it felt alot like when I was pregnant with my boys and they would stretch out and push my ribs ~ so strange. Getting better though, it will be three weeks this Tuesday. I worked for 11 hours last week and this week I am going to add another hour each day until I feel good enough to work the full six hours. I am taking it really slow.

The above journal pages I did while watching numerous movies while I was on bedrest. It sort of reminds me of an old western don't you think? It is completely done with my copic markers, which are running dry ~ yikes! Hubbub thinks it looks like a Disney Cartoon Character ~ I could see that I guess.



One day this past week I was near a Scrapbooking store and decided to take a peak (since it has been forever and a day that I have been in one)... and I found these amazing stencils by Crafters Workshop. I haven't been online to their website yet but I will look at it maybe this week sometime. The dragonflies caught my eyes immediately, I have never before seen such a thin stencil, and it worked like a charm! Isn't it gorgeous???? It is called Dragonfly Harmony.



This one is called Mini-Flutterby.



Here is a closer view of the beautiful wings of the butterfly.



The image on the left is called Tied Dyed by Crafters Workshop and the one on the right is by Tattered Angels part of the 3pc Winter Trees collection. I LOVE MY TREES!

I felt so blessed to find these stencils as I am certain they will be well used for my art journaling class!

Well, that's all for now. I am so glad that I am back to blogging... at least posting. Now, I have to get caught up on all of your fabulous blogs! I have missed you dearly!

Many hugs and blessings and as always... Happy Creating!

Hey, girlfriend! So happy to see you're feeling well enough to create and post. You're talking to the queen of surgery here, so I know first hand about the fatigue and long recovery process. Glad to see you're taking it slow - rushing the process only sets you back(yes-voice of experience) LOL LOVE your new stencils - I've never seen such a delicate butterfly. Big hugs and continued healing!
