Even if the world is gloomy
there's no need to feel all doomy.
Just take a look around
at all the beauty to be found.
And if you have the time,
to make some one else smile.
Get out some stickers and some glue,
some papers and gems too.
Mix them up with love and care
and create something to share.

A pain in the neck
quite literally.

and no crafting for me today..(sigh)
due to a particulary  bad flare up of my cervical spondylosis i am in a bit of pain today and have lost the mobility in my neck and upper back..I tried making an atc this morning for a swap i am hoping to join over at,
addicted to atc's
but had to abandon it half way through due to the pain..i wasn't very happy with it either..
I am also really struggling with the theme too...i just simply have not got a clue..unless i make another 3 similar to my dress it up swap..maybe?
anyway luckily i have an appointment at the hospital tomorrow.
anyway SORRY for the moan.
at least i can still surf a little and check out all the lovely cards you ladies create
