Well, as most of you know,
I have been laid-up for 8 weeks, with my broken ankle;
non-weight-bearing and elevated above heart and hip.
It has been the perfect opportunity to get creative.
That is, once the depression and “poor-me” wore off!
These are some of the things I decided to do.
The Grandies especially enjoyed them
and the Christmas Tree looked great.
I crocheted my niece a bobbly scarf,
taught Whitney to bake spicy biscuits and fudge,
and decoupage herself a salt box
to hold her handmade lavender bath salts.
Creative, productive and thoroughly enjoyable!
BTW I hope to do some tutorials on these and other crafts this year! Lol

I have been Decoupaging for about 10 years. I started on wooden objects and moved on to Fabric, Glass, Enamel, Metal, all kinds of surfaces! In fact, if it stayed still, I wanted to decoupage it! They make wonderful gifts, decor items and are lovely to make.
