Creative Therapy

Today I went to see my mom. She's been hospitalized since Sunday and she had surgery yesterday. My heart ached to see her so fragile. There were tubes everywhere. She could barely move without going through excruciating pain. I think I might have convinced her that it was okay to push the button that gives her the pain medication. Thank you all so so much for your well wishes and prayers. I pray she'll continue to improve and be home soon.

It might seem strange to create a card when there's so much going on, but it was certainly therapeutic. I found this really sweet digi stamp set on Two Peas. I love digi kits because I don't have to worry about actually putting stamp to ink. I still struggle with it. I used Laura's Sketch from 2S4Y for the card.

{paper} Girl's Paperie (of course LOL)

I found this wonderful seam binding & waxed string at our local store Papers! in Nob Hill. The store is absolute eye candy wherever you look & I always want everything when I go in there. Also, it's locally owned, so I feel somewhat justified in my trim indulgence.

We are being blessed again by Spring rains that always leave me surprises of small sprouts when I take my pup out the next morning. I pray you all have a lovely day.

Oh, Tina, I'm so sorry to hear that your mother is going through what she is going through. I pray that she recovers quickly, and that you will continue to be a strength for her. Keep finding your therapy where you need it. Blessings to you ;)
