Well, today's the day ... "H" day ... by time you're reading this I'll be in surgery already ... having my 'long awaited' hysterectomy. I thought the day would never get here when I was told I needed the surgery in early January ... and now it's here. Finally ... I'm excited for this to be over ... I'm looking forward to a -hopeful- speedy recovery so I can get back to what I love the most -- creating little paper crafted treasures and sharing them right here with you!!
I hope to only be in the hospital two days if all goes well, and then recovering at home over the next two weeks. As soon as I'm over the 'hump' as far as post-surgery pain goes, I'll be checking into blog land from my laptop in bed! I've stock piled loads of yummy, crafty magazines to read while I'm on the mend ... including the new Party Ensembles Book by Paper Crafts ... it was all I could do to have it in the house the past two weeks and NOT tear into it!!
I have also prepped my bedroom with lots of crafty things to keep my hands busy once I begin to feel up to 'doing something' but still need to keep still to let the stitches heal ... I'll be quilling and hand making paper flowers -- my newest passion!! Sounds like fun ... just wish the "H" thing weren't attached to all the fun things I have planned during my recovery - ha!!
So, I gave it some thought ... didn't want you to get bored and not have anything fun going on here at my blog in my absence! I've pre-posted a bunch of Design Team assignments that you'll be able to peek at while I'm away, but I still wanted to share a little something fun here for you girlies to enjoy while I'm gone. How about a fun little challenge??!!
'Aqua, Pink and Pearls ... Oh My'
Create a card or project inspired by the above photo USING AQUA, PINK AND NEUTRALS WITH PEARLS AND A PRETTY BOW! Easy peesey, right??!!
What's up for grabs ... how about 15 yards of shabby vintage seam binding from my Etsy Shop ... one yard of each of 15 beautiful colors!
Let's run this challenge from today until April 9th. That will give you girlies two weeks to create up a storm and submit all your little pretties right here for your chance to win! If all goes according to plan, I'll announce the lucky winner right here on April 10th!
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today! I can't wait to see what you'll create for this yummy challenge!!
See you all soon!
