First, I'm happy to report that I am now stitch-free! I had a nurse friend remove them Saturday, and I look almost human again without them. No Frankenstein costume for me this Halloween! The black eye is now mostly yellow and red and decreasing in size every day. I was actually able to put on a little eyeliner and mascara this morning!
In hindsight, I feel like I really was being watched over. It could have been very serious, but just one week later, I feel great! Thank you all so much for your well wishes after my fall. It was very special to have so many notes from all of you.
On the craft front - our current remodeling has given me a couple of ideas for home decor projects that will get me back to my Cricut. I have three in my head so far: some framed art, an unusual jewelry holder/display, and a holiday project using the discarded wood blocks from the rubber stamps that I converted to unmounted. (If you missed the video about how to do that, see this post.) I also realized that I never filmed and shared how I made an awesome, inexpensive ribbon rack, so that's to come as well.
I know Cricut and Gypsy are both feeling neglected, so I plan to get those projects started as soon as I can get this bathroom remodel done and clean up my craft room! It's amazing how remodeling one room can spin the whole house into disarray. I also have to share with you that a few of my craft tools have come in very handy while working on the bathrooms. My DH is very supportive of my crafting, but it's always good when he can see how many other ways my stuff comes in handy, know what I mean?
So, in summation, my eye is looking good, my house is looking good, and I should have some projects to post in the coming weeks. Thanks to all of you who have hung in there with me until I could get back to being creative!
