Bits and Bobs

Hi everyone. Its Sunday evening as I write this and I am trying to get myself excited to go back to work tomorrow. It will be tough-ha-ha, but I can handle it. This will be my first 5 day week since October, but the good news is the hubby is improving a lot so that I don't feel worried about him, unless he decides he can do things he isn't yet suppose to do (like heavy lifting and driving). Today he goes back to see the surgeon so we will hopefully find out when he can go back to work (which he says he is ready to do) and can drive again. I don't know if the doctor will give him the go ahead or not, but my husband is convinced he will. :)
I have another collage page for you today. It has No faces, NO leaves and No wings. So I am linking up to Art Journal Journey, which is hosted this month by Susi. 
I made this page yesterday when I said the heck with the mess in my house and spent the whole afternoon playing in my happy place. I used up a bunch of die cuts and other pieces that were piled up on my table. I also had a mail envelope which I cut out the mail piece.
I'm glad I had this time, even better that my daughter took my husband out. he wants to go someplace every day as he is sick of sitting home. It is why I was out and about so much this weekend, but I had my stay home day yesterday. Even better I had some arty time which made me happy.
This week in the evening I want to work on getting the rest of my holiday decorations up. I think this is the first Thanksgiving weekend I didn't do that.
Oh well, things will get done eventually.
Enough said here.
Have a great new week everyone.

LOvely new page, so glad you got some time just for yourself. Good to hear that your hubby is doing well, and I can understand him wanting to get out and about again. Thanks for another wonderful entry for AJJ! Hugs, Valerie

It is good to have time for yourself - to play with art, to make a collaged page with interesting details. I like the two threads of wool that run on both sides of the page!

So glad your husband is feeling better. It's such a relief to you, I'm sure.

Had fun seeing your collage. It;s a great way to get rid of bits and pieces lying around on your work table, while making meaningful art in the process.

I'm like you. I got "most" of my home decorated, but not all. I'm having a hard time getting motivated to do it, with temps in the mid to high 60s F right now. I like your attitude at least!

Have a fun Monday.

It's a good sign that your hubby has cabin fever and is anxious to venture out. It's probably hard to get him to rest enough, I bet lol. I trust he'll get a good re-check from the doctor. I'm glad you're managing some creative time alone. I like how you put it: "playing in my happy place."

Pleased to read that your husband is feeling much better, you must all feel good about his recovery.
Love your journal page, 'me time', can be a therapy in itself.

I like your page very much and especially glad to hear good news on the recuperation front.

I'm in the decorating mode. Excited to do it and needing to but for whatever reason a little slower and more deliberate this year. still, enjoying a lot!

Have fun with it!
