A quick update from me today. The hubby is still in the intensive care unit, slowly recuperating. He is still pretty heavily drugged up, and I have to laugh. He wanted his cell phone yesterday, so it brought it for him. So this morning he calls and tells me is no longer in the ICU.  Then he calls me 5 minutes ago and says he is still in the ICU. I think he was dreaming before. :) 
BUT the surgery went well. He is over the first day hump. Now he has the recovery road to go down.
There has been NO art time for me lately but I do have a few older journal pages to show you.
Here's my Halloween page. I was picking up my box of stamps to tuck it away on an upper shelf, and I just played with them before packing them up.  Yes, I have quite a few, which I have been collecting for the last 15 or so years. I can't help picking up a few each year when I see something interesting. They are rather fun!
Once things settle down I will catch up on my blog reading. Hope everyone is doing well.

WONDERFUL NEWS!! I'm so thrilled for you.

Love the witches, especially the ones on the bikes. Of course, I also adore the pumpkin with the cat inside.

Glad to hear your Hubby is doing well, on the day after the OP it's okay to be confused! All the best for you both, and please look after yourself. Thanks for the update, and for sharing your lovely journal pages. Hugs, Valerie

Hi there! I hope your husband is doing well. And you too - it can be tough having someone in the hospital. I enjoyed seeing your Halloween page and all of the stamps. But I REALLY love your new blog header! Hope you and your husband have a good week!

This is good news about your husband, Erika. I hope the road to recovery is smooth and no bumps. I'm sure you've been terribly worried about it and I hope as things move along you'll be able to get back into the groove.

I love the pages you showed. Made me smile.
