Hello and happy weekend! I wanted to give you a quick update.
I’m not sure if you’ve picked up on it from the blog, but I am a bit clumsy. I can’t take credit for my back injuries, as I have a genetic issue that has pretty much wrecked it. I could yawn and be out of commission for weeks. Honestly, I’m so blessed to be as active as I am.
That being said, this is my current situation:
I bruised my wrist pretty bad while making some adjustments to one of my Raskog carts (future post on that). And, of course, I’m right handed… The splint still gives me decent movement, but the big issue is it hurts to use my thumb.
However, I am stubborn (which is my my wrist is messed up, i didn’t just hit it once…). I’m going to try to play around with alcohol inks this weekend. I have the new Rose Gold and Gunmetal Mixatives and I want to see what they look like.
I also did some Distress Oxide ink smooshing on glossy cardstock last night, then added Micro Glaze. This is magic!!! I hope to write a post at least sharing the results. I may not have cards to share, but I’ll have something!
Another thing I have going on that may slow down my post a bit is searching for a new house!!!! The lease on our Condo is thru July, so it won’t be a mad rush. But, I will be spending some weekends looking at homes. Since I almost only craft on the weekends, my output will slow a bit.
Please hang in here with me! My goal is to find a place with a good, naturally lit, craft space and eventually craft videos!
I’ll be back on Monday with a quick post on the Distress Oxides and Micro Glaze. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!
