Something nice.

Something very nice arrived in the post this week. Of course, I had to buy it first, but I needed a bit of cheering up, so I decided to splurge on some inks.

I'm only beginning to get the hang of it, but it's a bit of fun :D  The horn is still in the wrong place though, sheesh!!!
I'll be doing a few more this week, so it should improve a bit (I would hope so at least!)!

 Handbags and funky baby grows now available :D

Today I have been mostly working from my bed! My legs hurt and I know a good walk might help, but I can't face it right now, so instead I've been updating my Etsy shop. The link is in the sidebar.

I need to clear out and get things moving but the urge to create pulls me back to my sketchbooks, crochet, knitting, felting.....  Oh the list is endless. I need to pack things away to stop these distractions :D

Meanwhile, I've been nursing my poor dog, Manchee. On Monday he was kicked in the face by Bo, my baby pony who has an overgrown aptitude for getting into trouble (remember the broken leg of last year?). Well, Bo has been such a pickle lately, swapping his muddy field for the one reserved for Spring, that we've yet again been threatened with eviction! 
Manchee meanwhile is suffering from a swollen jaw and a black eye worth of Rocky!!! He was extremely lucky not to have lost his eye and the incident is one of those memories I'll struggle to forget. He's on a lot of painkillers and a very mushy diet, but at least brightens up when I mention a Walk!

Aaah, the list of woes seem endless sometimes, but I will not be dragged down. I'll have a hot bath in Epsom salts (good for muscle pains), have a gentle walk and then create something arty. I've been playing with bleach art. It's not very good, but my kitchen is VERY clean :D I hope to share some pictures later.
