Injury break

Two years ago I had a car accident due to a drunk driver and damaged my shoulder. This led to de Quervain’s Tenosynovitis, a painful inflammation of the tendon that runs from thumb to shoulder. Aka texter’s thumb! They threatened to put my wrist in plaster 18 months ago but we got it under control.

My husband has some serious health issues and, while he was out of town for two days seeing the surgeon and discussing some very, very scary options, I crafted endlessly because it’s my stress relief. Overuse of scissors = major flare-up. I am doing no art, craft, letter writing or blogging for a while to let it heal. See you all in a week or three…

Index cards and good words

Recently I spoke at the Ikaroa Hui – it’s a library thing. I made a bunch of Gelli-plate index cards with key words on them, then promptly forgot to share the Power Point I had made of them. Doh! So here are a few of them; some are words from ‘Instructions for a bad day’ by Shane Koyczan. BTW I got into index cards thanks to the wonderful Roo (Ruth Cahill) – thanks Ruth!
