On the Bright Side, You Don't Need a Cone ...

I made a Pinwheel Tower Fold card for my cousin who recently had emergency open heart surgery. No prior health issues and she is only 59 years old. You can see the video here. It goes together very quick and it's very easy to do!

2022 Calendar

Tomorrow was SUPPOSED to be my surgery on my right thumb but the dr has postponed it until January. Since I also need my left thumb done 3-4 months after the first one, I do think it's better to wait and get it all done in 1 calendar year, since my co-pay will have been met after the first surgery. So I will just take it easy until then :). 

I make this calendar each year for some friends. It's 4x6 and I attach it to a frame that is easily able to change each month. When I knew I was having surgery, I made sure to get them done beforehand. It took me over a week to do and I worked on a couple of months at a time. I printed off the monthly calendar.

As You Like It - Favorite Non-Card Project and Why (I love this annual calendar I make for my friends. I have been making a calendar for 2 of my friends for about 10 years. They look forward to it every Christmas. This year, I added 3 more to give to 3 more friends. I should say, to 2 other friends and I made one for myself. It just makes me happy and I love using all my favorite stamps for each month).
