Sweet Riley and the Domestice Goddess set by Hanna Stamps were waiting for me to come home from the hospital. This morning I actually wanted to play, so I sat down and created these two little gems.
I made the St. Patty's Day card first, and really like how it turned out. Then, as I was gazing at the image of Riley sitting in the chair, feet up, coffee in one hand and cupcake in the other, it made me think of how my daughter, Tiffany and my DH, John, are looking after me. It really is all about ME at the moment and I'm rather enjoying it, I must say.
Sitting at my craft table is even good exercise because I'm always moving my chair back and forth to reach here and there. It is on wheels, but also on carpet and it takes some muscle to move it around. Sometimes, if I'm feeling lazy and don't want to push, I just bend my knee a little more to go around an iris cart or whatever, so I'm actually exercising and not really thinking about it. YAY for stamping! Another useful purpose. Anyway, it's getting late, I'm starting to tire and have done my exercises twice today. John is a super coach. He sits right beside me and does my counting for me. The exercises are extensions, flexions, straight leg raises and such. I'm required to do 20 on each leg and, towards 14 or so it starts to get tough. But, John's there with the encouragement to get me through. He's amazing and I love him for being there all the way with me. Too soppy, I'm signing off now so I'll be back tomorrow most likely. I say most likely because sitting in this chair is challenging right now, but so worth it because you have all been there for me since day one and, once again, I want to express my appreciation for your prayers and thoughts. God Bless.
