Chilling on the Couch


So the surgery went well.  And I am stuck on the couch.  But I really haven't even been able to read or watch much because I pretty much sleep 20 minutes then wake for 20 minutes.  Even through the night, that is how it went.  So I've seen bits and pieces of shows.  But I hope I am getting good rest and am able to heal quickly.  It does hurt, I'm not going to lie, but I also have a bunch of meds....which might help explain my sleeping patterns and why I have totally been out of it. 

So I really wanted to say thanks for hanging in there with me during this time of recovery.  I probably won't be posting as much, but I'll make sure to do a fun giveaway when things are back to normal, as a thanks for hanging in there with me.  I know that last time I had stuff happen and posted a lot less, I also lost a bunch of followers.  So I wanted you all to know that I WILL get back to posting regularly relatively soon.  I do have some posts scheduled to go, so it's not like I am totally going to be gone, just not posting as often for next 3 weeks or so. 

And here is one of the projects I have to share with you...

I created it to hang on the wall.  Over at the BasicGrey blog we are sharing projects using their fun monograms.  So make sure you stop by the BasicGrey blog to see what others have done with these.  My project also uses the fun Kissing Booth collection from BasicGrey. 

Here are some close up's:


I am pleased with the way this turned out.  :)  My kids are the best...the cutest....of course, I am a bit biased.  But I love the joy they bring me and just looking at this on the wall brings a smile to my face.  It's part of why I do what I do.  :) 

Well, if you need to reach me, I will be here:


Have a fantastic day!!!!!
