Friendship...

 I finally felt good enough to get into my craft room and play with my stuff!
My knee is still very stiff and sore. I am following all the rules and doing my physical therapy. So now I just need to learn patience!!!!!

I only had energy for something small, so I thought I would make a tag.
I loved the color challenge this week at


Gray ~ Green ~ Lavender



Unfortunately...my lavender looks more like Fushia!!!
It was so good playing with my Gelatos and stencils...getting my fingers all dirty!
And then all of a sudden...
I was exhausted!!!! I had to go take a nap!!!

Hopefully, I will be able to play again soon!
Thanks for stopping by!

I am glad to hear you had some energy to make a tag, Mackie. I know ALL about feeling good then all of a sudden you hit that wall and youre pooped. I can vouch for you that the amount of crafting time will lengthen. I just hit my three month mark since the lapidus bunionectomy, and i am finally starting to walk with a shoe again. Amen. Good luck to you with your healing and PT (those PTs are angels arent they?). Good to hear you are following what they tell you to do! Take care and nap often.

Mackie, I don't know what the colors are IRL, but I can tell you from my monitor, they are stunning! This is not just a little thing, this is awesome! I'm glad that you are able to get back to crafting, even for small periods of time. It's a good way to take your mind off your knee coz it's so hard to be a patient patient!! Big hugs, Darnell
