If you open the lost & found box you will surely find me there.. & A Sneak Peek

Yes I've been some what lost lately...I keep hoping that someone finds me....LOL...
 Not sure there is any particular reason that out weighs the other.
Maybe wondering where the future leads me...maybe trying to get back into the swing of things after hand surgery....maybe the Holidays...maybe worries about my throat surgery that got canceled and rescheduled for January 31th...maybe having a stupid Sinus Infection and Chest infection that simply won't go away ....All of which I think rolls into what we all call The Winter Blues...
Which of course when you don't feel good that alone gives the Blues..

Today the sun was shinning and of course lifted the old I decided to go visit my Daughter April and the Grand kids... First April & i met up at the Goodwill to do a little shopping turned out to be good therapy indeed... Found myself some new sweats & a sweater top with a matching jacket...Love it! Found a few goodies for the Shop creations and found some games for the kids...and puzzles for for us to put together...Love Puzzles and so does April...

After therapy we headed back to her house for dinner...Taco's.
I helped her organize her book shelf so the kids had a place to put there games...
It was good to get out of the Trailer and do some Goodwill Therapy and visiting!

My hands are doing really well...still having some troubles with the thumb being painful. It was perfectly straight after the stitches came out and was doing really well then about two weeks ago it started to pain me & swell & worst of all it started to curve to the left again with a bump on the right side exactly where it was before surgery.
There is a possibility the mucus cyst is coming got an appt with doc next week.  Grrrrrrr

I've been working out in the shop every day now for the past three weeks and each day has been easier and easier to do the things I used to do...other then the thumb giving me fits I've actually created some really nice gatherings. I also made about 300 Hand Dipped Spice Rolled Candle Nubby's and 50 Hand Dipped Spice Rolled Candle tapers..My shop still smells like heaven...

The best part is that they are selling pretty quickly... or so it seems.. Reality is probably that I was able to create 20 to 30 gatherings a month before .... so some gathering sat in my Ebay store for sometime...but now that it takes me longer.... I create less..... so they sell quickly..which is good because it has all fallen into place with my schedule...Between all my physical therapy visits & doctor visits, creating, listing, selling, packing & shipping there isn't a lot of time for much else.

So with out further ado.... check out all my new gatherings created with my new hands!
Some very nice Eye Candy if I do say so....

  6. Hey Lady. So glad your hands are doing better cept for your thumb. I feel your frustration. Also sorry about your sinus junk. I probably shouldn't say this cuz as soon as I do I'll be sick but....Mom, Dad and I have been pretty good this winter. No bugs or anything.

    Your gatherings are BEAUTIFUL. I hope you sell out in a week.

    My sales have really fallen off. I don't want to quit making penny rugs since I'm closing the shop so I think I'm going to start a business page on facebook or maybe Etsy. I don't know yet.

    Stay warm
