One thing I have learned from having surgery is how weepy and vulnerable I feel after a procedure. I cry for no reason and my emotions are near the surface. Still, I am happy I have done these. My knee has been the most wonderful story. I am still a bit bruised and swollen (and not wearing makeup yet); so, the plastic procedures are hard to be enthusiastic about; though, even now they look good and I know in a few months will even be better. I am glad the eyes are done and I think no more procedures.) I feel more myself. However, my husband has been the most patient of men as I work through the emotional stuff.
Obviously, one procedure after another has had its toll on the blog. It's been hard to do more than Facebook recently. I am getting enthusiastic about scrapbooking again and I am looking forward to being done with school for the semester. I am producing a few interesting prints. I plan to post those when I have more done. My French has improved even though I have not devoted the time I should have to my lessons. Art history has been fun. I think I like studio classes best though.
I had some wonderful travels in October and hope to pull things together into some scrapbook pages. I did try to keep up on Facebook, as I took the trips; but, looking back is a lot of fun and I get to use my DSLR pictures!
Here are a few layouts from the past few months that I made for Get It Scrapped at http://www.DebbieHodge.com. It's been fun creating a variety with digital, paper and pocket pages.
Thank goodness for the Creative Team projects! They've kept me creating even when I've been challenged by the wear and tear of surgical procedures. The fact that I've been making art, too, has me reflecting that I have been busy! Just not blogging much. I've always found it a challenge to keep up even in the best of times but I do keep this for a personal record and like to look back. So, I am sure I'll keep at this.
