Spooky Card

I know it has been awhile since I last uploaded a video or even blogged. Unfortunately I had a few setbacks which included a few more falls and a broken lamp.  Even though, it is a good thing that I have extra cushion in my butt, but can’t say the same for my knee.  It has been hurting bad to where standing become painful for me.

I had planned to do 5 Days of Halloween but that turned out to be a flop.  Mainly because when we dug out the stuff for the Bentley sale for November, we realized that we didn’t have much stuff.  Actually I nearly went into full blown panic when we found one box of knitted and crochet items.  It has been nearly two years since our last sale, and tells me that we didn’t do much work. Good news is that I found a second box, but it doesn’t ease the stress.

And yes, I know, “Lesley, you were recovering and still recovering from a brain injury which took you at least 6 months before you were able to make cards and such. And do not forget your knee and balance that it still giving you grief.”  And everyone told you that it will take at least a year to fully recover.  And it will take A LOT of patience.  I hate when they are right.

And I forgot that I sold most of my stuff at Koda’s Kountry. This is a good thing.  But nevertheless that means that I will be knitting and crochet my butt off till the sale.

However I wished that I knew before buying all of the Halloween stuff and threw out the receipt so now I cannot take it back.


But at least I got the Halloween cards done for Koda’s Kountry.


And I am not holding my breath for 5 Days of Christmas. I just need more patience and alittle more chocolate.

The only thing I realized that once I get back to normal or somewhat normal, I am going to have a lot of stuff to do and organize. I think that little more chocolate is going to change to A LOT more chocolate.

I did manage to make one video for Halloween, a card.

The supplies that I used:

  • Halloween Recollection Acetate Paper Pad 4×6

  • 5 x 6 ½ inch black Recollection Card
  • Double sided tape

This was a simple and easy card to make.  I really like the Acetate paper pack and planning to keep my eyes out for more.  Although I honestly cannot see them as Christmas or Easter theme.

This is Sat is the big sale which I really hoping that the weather and my knee will be fine.  I am planning to bring my phone to shoot another video there.  Hopefully it will better than the one two years ago.
