It's been over a month since I injured the elbow of my dominant (right) arm. I'm very grateful to have found out that while I have a small triceps tear and a tear in the tendon, both should heal without surgery.
I have been spending more time reading and watching television than I can remember doing in a long time, because continuing to use the arm after work or on the weekend was just not worth it. Those activities have actually been very relaxing and enjoyable -- as much as I love my paper-crafting, I think taking a bit of a break has been beneficial.
But I've made the time to edit pictures and put together Project Life pages. (I'm doing one side of a page protector per week, rather than two, as many people do.) Because much of the "work" for PL is on the computer (photo editing, typing up the journaling card), it has been doable. I've made a few cards and finished a two page layout over the weekend that had been on my desk for weeks. I'm pleased with the things I have chosen to do and look forward to getting more done as the arm continues to heal.
I made three priority lists for 2013 over on my other blog and thought I'd cross-post here. This blog is primarily for crafting/photography/scrapbooking/cardmaking and the other one, honestly, languishes. But this post seemed to make more sense over there.
I saw a new set of Typepad "themes" were available and decided to switch from the one I'd been using for quite some time. While I'm a halfway decent photographer and have made web graphics in the past, I haven't prioritized making my own header for this blog. (So many priorities, so little time!)
I like the pale grey chevron at the outer edges and Aqua is a current favorite color -- I find it slightly obnoxious that all the hyperlinks are aqua, too. Let me know if it's "too much," ok?
Thank you to anyone visiting and wishing to leave a comment! I don't get many, so it's always fun. Except when it's a spammer, which is why I just changed the settings on the blog. If you're signed in to Typepad or another service, I don't think you will see the random letters box, but if you are commenting with just an email address, it will ask you to enter one of those blasted codes. I've been getting a lot of spam comments, so I decided I'd better add this. Thanks for understanding! :)
