made a little somethin' somethin' for both Bex and Sarah B (fashionistas a SIStv)
I am not one to make cards. I will purchase one at Hallmark with the quickness though. Any time. Any day. Except this year I will erase my fear of card making and face it head on. I don't necessarily call these "cards" more like little art pieces. They are one worded. Purposefully because I don't really keep happy birthday cards and hang them longer than my birthday week. So I made some to keep out longer than that. Sporadic yes, but full of happiness.
Here's Bex :
And here's Sarah's:
Both ladies I love and wish all the hope and happiness in this world always :)
I also wanted to mention something. No pitty please, just wondering if anyone else out there deals with the same thing. This past week was a toughie. More physically than emotionally. I had been experiencing some uncomfortable numbness and tingling in my left arm and hand. At night it was the most painful. I went to the doctor on Friday to find out that I have CTS (carpal tunnel syndrome) in my left arm. Funny enough the arm I do not use as much. I work 40+ hours a week as a graphic designer at my church. All the computer work is catching up. So now I wear a brace. Tough to realize at 28 your already falling apart. But like my doctor said- it's a benign condition and I'm 100 percent healthy still. Praise God. :) I'm not dying. At least not yet. LOL. But I wonder what others who deal with CTS do to lessen the symptoms? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
And a HUGE thank you to both Lee & Sandra for nominating my little web space for an award. I keep this space open for people to connect to SIStv, for those who enjoy art to stop by and say hi, and for Mr. handsome to read LOL. But mostly, to meet wonderful people whom I'm sure if it wasn't for this blog I would've never met. Hello friends. ;)
Just know that my 1st blog anniversary is coming up in MAY and I'd be happy to make little "art cards" with lots of love from me to you as a rak. So please post a comment and everyone who posts will be entered to win a card. I appreciate and love you each and everyone of you. And if you have any ideas for gifts I can totally use the help. (since i've never had a blogiversary ;) help me make it a good one! Thanks for taking the time again to say hi. :)
Off to make some tags/ art cards to give away.
much love and happiness for you,
