I'm starting our party early this week because I'm still at the hospital with Greg.
He had his shoulder replacement on Monday morning and when the doctor got in there, there was a lot more damage than what had showed up in the MRI. Besides the replacement, he had to have part of his clavicle taken off , bicep repair and a ton of cleaning and scraping.
He's going to be fine and the doctor said he would now have a bionic shoulder when all of this is said and done. The hard part is, he's in a lot of pain and will be for quite some time, along with months of physical therapy.
We originally thought he would be able to come home on Tuesday, but now they have to get his pain under some control before they'll send him home.
God love him, he still has his sense of humor and still worrying more about the kids and me than he is about himself.
So....while I'm sitting in a hospital room I want you all to party and show off all your awesome ideas, creations, and recipes so I have something to look through. Think of it as a 2 day idea fest!
Let's get started, how 'bout it?
Link up anything you want to share with us this week. It can be your fabulous craft, yummy recipe, giveaway, shop, etc.
I'll feature the Top 5 most viewed links next Wednesday.
I would love for you to follow A Creative Princess while you're here!
If you would like to grab an It's a Party button (on the sidebar) and post it on your blog somewhere, that would be great! Let's get the word out and grow this party.
The more the merrier!
We all love comments, so please visit other links and have fun!
Alert the media. We finally finished all the tiling in our main bathroom!
There's still odds and ends to finish up, but the tile is down and the new vanity and stool are installed. We're waiting on the Clawfoot Tub to be refinished and that bamboo you see in the corner is going to be used for some trim.
In the meantime, I'm grabbing all the beachy items in the house to use to decorate along with a few new projects.
I thought this would be a good time to repost a frame I made in 2011. It's still out in another room, but I'm thinking it will end up in here.
Anyway, here is the post I did in July, 2011.
Lobster Tails and Clam Shells
It's happened. I've sunk to an all time low in the name of crafting. Greg and I went out to eat the other night and I brought home our lobster tails and clam shells (Yuck!) when we were finished with them.
I did, I wrapped them in a napkin and put them in my purse!
When I got home I boiled them again and washed them with soap and water.
I had this black frame with 4 sections so I painted and sanded it.
I used sand scrapbook paper and then glued the shells on the front of the frame. I had the little white shells that I used for the center of the flower.
I've used lobster tails to make flowers before, but always when we ate them at home. I've never wrapped them up from a restaurant and brought them home. I'm sure the people near us thought I was crazy! No, I'm not nuts, just a crafter.
I would love it if you see something I’ve done and want to make one for yourself or give as a gift, but not to sell. Please link back and give credit where credit is due. I would like to see what you’ve done to make it your own (improved the idea). Thanks for visiting!
