Crochet, Celebrating and other things

Happy Holidays!!!!  I pray that you had a wonderful holiday season.  I'm thankful that I was able to share my holiday with family and friends. 

Well I just wanted to share a few things with you that are really major to me and that's me finishing a crochet item for the first time in at least 6 months.  My daughter asked me if I could make a slouchy hat for my grandson and of course I'm going to give it a try.  So I checked Ravelry and found THIS Slouchy Hat The project turned out so well that after the New Year I made the grey one.  

Read my notes on Ravelry link above to learn more about this Photo Shoot of sorts (inserts smiles and giggles)

So in between Christmas and New Years I was blessed to have a Spinal Cord Stimulator Trial placed and I couldn't tell on day 1 but by day 2 I finally felt a difference.  Now what I haven't shared and you may not be aware of is Chronic pain robs you of a peaceful night of sleep so I haven't had one since the spring of 2012.  Yeah, I know right, that long? I'm so grateful and yet so upset because tomorrow the device will be removed and preparations will be made for my permanent device to be placed. 

This is me the first night and the contraption is my remote control.  Please keep me in your prayers that they hurry up with this process and I can get my permanent device installed.  I do have one confession.....My back is taped up because it holds the device and the leads that are stitched in place but OMG it's itching so bad and sponge baths are for the birds....LOL

So because I have restrictions my daughters thought it would be good to get me a Clipboard and a few other crafty Planner goodies for Christmas 

I have some health issues that over the past 3 years have caused me to have trouble writing yes to the point that I can't make a straight line because my hand won't move.  As a girl that loves Social Media I see so many beautiful things and Brush Lettering really caught my attention so of course, I retreated
to Pinterest and found Llama Lettering FREE printables  My youngest daughter is an artist and told me that it might be a good idea to try the Faber-Castell PITT Artist Pens to help me get the hang of Brush Lettering for myself.  To your right you see me trying to figure out the right angles and where the weight needs to be.

Needless to say the Holiday Season has been a blessing to me not for the things that I received BUT for the chance at relief from my Chronic pain.  Please come back and find out what has unfolded for me and also to see how I'm adapting to my Happy Planner
