Another Step In The Journey

Sorry I have been "missing" - just been resting up and getting a little betterer each day.
Another 'step' in the 'journey' will take place next Thurs 6 March when I have my "planning appointment" for my radiation treatment.
Creating art hasn't really featured in my life lately - although I have made a few cards and ATCs in the last few days.
My dear husband brought me a new sewing machine for Valentines Day and its still sitting in its box waiting for me to have enough energy and find my muse and start creating some fabric related artworks too.
So watch this space !!

Breast Cancer Awareness ATCs

Made some Trading cards using one of the collage sheets i brought off ebay the other day.
This sheet is BC awareness themed and a Portion from the sale of this sheet goes to the American Cancer Society for the Fight against Breast Cancer.

I have had a "not so good" past couple of days - but trying to work through the physical and emotional "stuffs" . This too shall pass! I get frustrated easily wanting to get back to "doing it all" - including housework would you believe !!! but in time i know will be back to being painfree. In the meantime I am trying to focus on the good and positive things in my life !!

Update On Me

Yesterday was my appointment at the hospital to learn the results from my surgery. Pathology report shows lymph nodes were clear and clear margins were found. So next step is to have radiation treatment - no date set for this yet. But good news is NO CHEMO at this stage.
So in the meantime plenty of REST and hopefully the pain and bruising will lessen each day. And hopefully soon I will be creating my art again.

Doodling is good for the soul

I have decided after an afternoon of doodling - that doodling is good for the soul. It's the first art I have attemped since my surgery.
Nothing like taking your mind off the pain by doodling some ATCs.

Its been a frustrating week - kind of 1 step forward, 2 steps back
And my appointment to get my results and ongoing treatment schedule came to nothing on Thursday as when I got to the clinic I was told that my results hadnt come back yet - so another appointment has been scheduled for this coming Tuesday morning.

So one day at a time and hopefully my muse has returned - albeit in small play times.
