To all my fellow followers and dearest friends, I have missed you. It has been over a month since I have had the opportunity to blog. Three weeks ago TODAY, I was gently pulling a few weeds in the garden and when I stood up, suddenly I felt like someone had cut off my right leg with a sword. Seriously.... this was some of the worst pain I had ever experienced.

I crawled into the house, took some Tylenol and grabbed and ice pack. After several hours trying to get the pain to subside, I knew I had to go to the Emergency Room. A quick ambulance ride, an equally quick exam, a script and I was on my way home (some three hours later). Lucky me really did it this time. My lower back and right leg have been numb and in pain for three weeks. I have however, managed to get myself to my doctor, had x-rays and have begun PT. With that said, my couch is about the only place I have been (other than to the bathroom! LOL) for quite some time.

I have found myself addicted to Pinterest and am making myself even crazier than I already was by pinning all the gorgeous items created by fellow artists. The DIY and plethora of Tutorials are overwhelming and I am just dying to get back to creating. Unfortunately that probably won't happen for quite a few more weeks. I need to get rest and take it easy in order to get back to my energetic self and create all the designs swirling in my head right now. I can't sleep at night just thinking about all the pretties I want to make. I know you know what I mean!

Until then, I hope you all enjoy your weekend and are enjoying the warm weather. We New Englanders have no clue what that feels like because it was still cold enough to turn on the heat this week! Cold and rain, a few minutes of sun, then cold and rain. Maybe one of these days it will warm up and stay warm at least for a few weeks before Fall comes and rears it cold and cloudy head again!

Take care and enjoy yourselves and think of me while you are partying, dancing, grilling, creating, visiting friends and family, yada yada yada! xo

so sorry dear friend for the pain you are going through. Is it sciatic nerve issues? I had a friend who had something similar and just want to encourage you to really really take it easy. She would decide she needed to vacuum or some such and it would put her back big time. I know it is hard to just rest when so much creativity is churning but you will have time ....nows the time to read all those books you have been wanting to!

I hope you feel better soon.
It's horrible being laid up...
Can you sketch some new ideas?

Hi Cathy,

I had no idea that you hurt yourself. I'm so sorry that this happened to you. Of all people. You are the sweetest and nicest person and sure don't deserve it,but rest assured that you will be good as new soon. I am sure of it. I can only imagine all the creative ideas you have. I am the same way. So many ideas so little time,but do what you can at your own pace. The most important thing is that you feel good. Remember that God is always with you so you are never alone. Have a wonderful day Cath.

Hi, Cathy. So sorry to hear this. I know how it must drive you crazy not to be able to create. Take care, sweet lady.

Hi Cathy,

It's been ages since I have come to your blog and I'm slapping my fanny for not getting her sooner. First off, sorry to hear of the pain and what you are going through. If it's not one thing in our life, it's another. I've got the aches and pains too from running around a thrift store 10,000 sq ft trying to keep everything in order and pretty and being the manager and doing the displays. Fun work but pain attached.

This is Jacqueline, from Once Upon a Fairyland. Your blog is just as beautiful as I've always remembered. I love Pinterest can find me under
Jackie Jaggers, how do I find you!

Happy summer time, and happy 4th of July from my corner of the the good ol' USA to your corner!

In kindness!
