Creative Journey Week 47

The year is winding down fast, I can't believe there is less then a month to Christmas and almost a year I've been doing this.It all started here.  I have been doing at least one creative act everyday for over 40 weeks now.  There has been days when I haven't taken a picture of what I have done every day but I have been creative. 

Recovery is going well but I do spend a lot of time seated. I was able to get rid of the crutches but the brace and I are still friends for a few weeks.The good news is this week I was able to fit into my custom brace. It makes life so much easier.

  My to-do list for this recovery period has these projects on it; Halloween costumes,  birthday invites, creative activity for the party, loot bags,Christmas cards, get my Etsy shop up and running, new blog, Christmas presents, inventory for the shop, sew a new purse etc. See big list, let's see what I actually get done.

  Last week I completed the a custom order hat and started another one, I finished the hat part for my Godson's present. Lots of party prep for Monkey's party. For some reason blogging is very low on my priority list. I'm so sorry but I just don't have the spark for it.

  This week I will be focusing on Christmas presents, Christmas cards, and maybe some blogging.

  If you want to see what I am up to on a daily basis you can check me out on facebook or twitter.

Made a pompom for decorations


Progress on the decorations, all handmade


For many, many hours I worked on baking layers for a rainbow cake and tie dye rainbow cupcakes

At physio working on another custom hat

cutting out cupcake wrappers with my new Circut

More decorations cut with the Circut

Stacking and dirty icing the cake. I hated working with the white cake it just crumbled, I lose so much of the cake, it was badly misshapen.  I had friends who told me to throw out the cake but I knew I could make it decent. Not my best work but presentable.


Skittles made the cake look decent and brought the rainbow theme out further.

And I iced the cupcakes

And I finished the last of the 3 custom order dinosaur hats. I think they look so cute.


The party set up. It was an art themed party. 

Not a creative act but one of my best projects to date, the Birthday Princess

The girls being creative

My rewards after a long day (2 parties) my feet up, ice on the knee, watching TV with Rock and some crocheting.
Today we did our Christmas family photos and here is a sneak peek at my loves

Crocheting, while uploading the pictures on the laptop and checking Facebook with the desktop.

So I have one more week at home before I go back to work, I still have lots I want to accomplish and don't know how I will adjust to not being as productive after that.

I hope everyone had a creative and productive week, and the upcoming week is as productive and creative.
