Coming Back



I've missed you!  My life has taken a bit of a side road over the past few months while I coped with health problems.  Oh how invincible we feel until we aren't!

I am definitely in the snail mode - moving slowly and hiding in my shell at times.  Thanks to all of you who have contacted me privately, I love your emails. 


Scattered in here you can see my 'rehabilitation' projects.  Once home from the hospital I knew I needed to create. I also knew that I couldn't/wouldn't take on any long and laborious tasks.  Thus came 'box lid art'!  I had a bunch of purchased boxes on hand and going through my stash (another good recovery project) I found all manner of fun things that I could use.  



Two mindsets have gotten me through all this 'upheaval' -- acceptance and gratitude.  I thank all of you for 'being' there - your kind words have given me the strength to get back to blogging.

  1. This is cool. I just love the idea of box lid art. It has an instant frame. I especially like the one with the map in the back. So glad you are back to blogging.

  5. Well, my goodness, Penny, WELCOME BACK. I have missed you. I also know what it's like suddenly realizing I am not invincible after all ... may you continue to mend in any way that feels best for you. That said, these box lids are a most interesting path! All my best to you.
