Well, that's another story...
A couple of weeks ago my beautiful daughters were asked to model for some promotional photos for our hairdresser. They loved it. I had a wonderful afternoon watching them have their hair and make up done. They seem so natural in front of the camera, not at all self-conscious. I'm not sure how impressed their father was with the finished product, but I thought they looked amazing. Anyway, the point of the story is the amount of glitter they were covered in. It was everywhere - including inside my plaster cast! I'm still not sure how it got there but as all crafters know, glitter does get everywhere!
So, the cast has gone and I had expected to have been back at work today. However, the doc says there's still lots of healing to do and I have to have another week off work. I don't mind, in fact I love being at home. I don't do boredom, so that's not an issue and even though I can't use my hand much, I can still find things to do. One of the things I've been doing is watching the craft programmes on the TV. I know the object of the programmes is to sell the products they show, but I've loved seeing the demonstrations. That has been frustrating in a way as I can't craft, but I did manage to make one of the cards they showed.
Card of the Day
This is the card I made. I'm very pleased with it as I made it completely with my left hand! I would have like to have put a butterfly on it as the lady on the TV did, but I couldn't cut one out so I had to use a flower instead. It's made from a kit that was included in a magazine I bought so I didn't have to do any cutting. I'm very pleased with the card and it will be my Mother-in-law's Mother's Day card.
