It's The One-Handed, Slow, Poster! Ha!

     I want to introduce you to one of my friends...Mr. Pain Pill. I HATE Mr. Pain Pill!!! And I hate his buddy too...BEN-gay! But I wouldn't have even met them if it was not for their cohort...ARTHUR-itis!! I think I have the wrong kind of men in my life these days!! LOL
   As much as I like to talk, this pinched nerve and this one-handed typing is really cramping my style...and my fingers! It is starting to ease up a bit though. I'm just going to have to rest my arm for at least another couple of days. So, to you is the only talking (typing-wise) I'm doing with any necessity...except to customers.
   And YAY for me...I had a couple of sales over the last couple days!! It's been a long dry spell. Not a long non-crocheting spell...because I HAVE been crocheting!!! 'Can you say PISTACHIO'?!! LOL And NO!...Smarty-Pants!...that is not why I have a pinched nerve!!! That's my story.....! ^_^
    Before I go though, I did want to share some great things going on in blogland. For instance, on Denise's blog she's sharing a wonderful opportunity for you crafty types to be published in Bead Trends Magazine!! Follow the link for directions on how to submit your original work!
    Also, One Artsy Chick is having a Romance Necklace Giveaway! This necklace...
     If you have Facebook you need to follow this link and enter. It's very easy!!! I did already. It was too pretty to pass up!
   And one last thing. I'd like to thank ladynera for including my Hearty Pink and Black Stripe and Block Scarf in her Etsy Black & Pink Style Treasury!
     You can follow the link to check out the other shops!
   Okay, my one hand is about wore out!! I'm going to stop typing now, before the other arm gets a pinched nerve and I have to go looking for books on 'How To Type' with your teeth or tongue!!! LOL
   Oh Yeah!! I almost forgot to tell you who the winner of the GIVE AWAY was! It's Becky! Congratulations Becky!!! Check your email for info!...I'll be doing another one soon. Have a good day everybody!

Fall Is The Tree

Fall is the tree,
with its colors all set free
in the orange and red you see,
and the golden leaves in the
honey-colored harmony
of a busy bumble bee.

Its so beautiful that we
don't even have to pay a fee
for the stark tranquility
that just fills our heart with glee.

Fall is the tree,
and it makes us hit our knee,
and thank God so humbly
for the unlocked door and key
to our visual memory.
All the other seasons flee,
but the fall is the tree.

  2. I'm so sorry you're hurting! You need my hubby! (He's a Chiropractor who can fix anything...really!) You are too talented with poetry and beautiful handiwork to be hindered...so hang in there and hopefully you'll be 100% soon! Your poem about our aging bods made me laugh because I'm living every bit of it!

  4. Sorry for all your aches and pains.... I have my own, but for now am anti-medicine of any kind, (let's see how long that goes) and congrats on the recent sales. May that be signs of good things to come for the Holidays!

    PS. beautiful scarf! Not surprised it was included in the treasury!
