NEC and my injury!

With my TG teamie Marriane
Well there was nothing for me to demo at the craft show this time so for the first time in ages I went as a customer. What a great time I had. I watched other people doing demo's. I really enjoyed that and learnt loads of tips and techniques. And I did a bit of shopping too!

I wont say HOW MANY LOTV stamps I bought but lets just say I will be busy for a few weeks.

In fact I bought lots of stamps and some great new dies too and some Sparkle paste which I am going to attempt to use. It looked easy when it was demonstrated. Famous last words.

And I also bought ( a bit too many!) beads.

I had a great surprise when I heard someone call out my name and saw it was my Totally Gorjuss team mate Marianne and her friends. Hope you enjoyed the day Marianne.

I was back in work today but had an accident....opening a door!!!!!!!

The fire door is heavy and I put some force on the handle to open it. As I did I felt a "snap" in my hand. Down the middle of palm I saw a thick, swollen and hard line of blue. My hand started to sweat and my fingers tinkled and felt very tight. I was sent to hospital where the Dr said I had pulled the muscle away
from the bone and broken a vein. He said it will be painful for about a week and could get quite bruised. I need to rest it and take painkillers. I am gutted as it means I wont be able to do any housework!!!!!(LOL)

However I did mange to make 2 cards when I got back home. I will post these later. Nothing stops me crafting!

Have a good and safe evening. be careful opening doors!!!!

hugs Sarah x
