What's Up?

Sometimes I feel like my life is still tumbling down those steps. Some things are up; others are not. Such is life. Whatever hits, hits with a BANG.

I am trying to get back to creating cards, but my level of creativity has dropped temporarily as other challenges in life cloud my thinking.

Got the word today the only way to fix my ankle and leg is surgery. This Friday. THIS Friday! My Dr. seems to have a sense of humor. He has no idea the challenges I face preparing for another surgery--my second in the past seven months...and, no, the other surgery had nothing to do with broken limbs. It was simply another hurdle I had to get through...but the good thing is, I got through it.

I asked where I could find the silver lining in this surgery. My son answered, plain and simple.

"The silver lining is your ankle will be fixed."


The odd thing is, while this physical challenge has disrupted my otherwise quiet life, other challenges have become quite positive. Literally.

Did you see "The Outlawz Proud to be a Winner" badge to the right on my blog? Yes! I won the Outlawz Challenge for the month of March, which gifts me some free Oozak products! The challenge had been for a 3D object, and I entered the shadow box I made for my son and his new bride. (See Older Posts) That's not all. I also won $20 worth of stamps from Unity Stamp Company a month ago. AND...I won a Grab Bag of free gifts from Gina K Designs when my red, white & blue card was chosen as a winner! I can hardly stand all this good luck! That's ok...it's beginning to balance out!

So, What's Up? My leg, my life, my challenges. Literally.


  1. Congrats on your win, Sharon! Enjoy your shopping at Oozak and Unity! So sorry to hear you need surgery. I will keep you in my prayers, and hope your recovery is very quick. Your creativity will return when your life settles Down and you feel better. Hugs...

  2. Your son sounds like a smart man. Congratulations on your wins. Hope you have a speedy recovery.

  3. Hi Sharon. I read your comment on my blog a few weeks ago and wanted to track you down to let you know I'm thinking of you! So sorry to hear about your accident and then to need surgery, too. Ugh! I really feel for you. Mine was not nearly as bad as what you are dealing with, but it does get better eventually. I got the walking boot a few weeks ago and now I've graduated to shoes! As soon as I got into the boot and could get around a little easier, my creativity started coming back and I'm sure yours will, too.

    Sending loads of healing thoughts and cyber hugs your way. Hang in there!

    Can you email me with your snail mail address if you don't mind? I have something I want to send you. theresamomber (@) gmail.com


I'd love to read your comments!
