Hello friends, it's been a while
Do you like windchimes? do you have windchimes? I love them and have a few but my nextdoor neighbour who is of Chinese descent, tells me in her culture they are bad luck and that my problems are all down to my windchimes...Hmmm
I have a few cards to share and then I'll update you.
One of my drawn and painted leaves with more left over pieces
Sometimes I stamp things, paint them and then cut out just part of the image.. The grey/silver leaves above are from a large stamped image
This was one of a few mushrooms I painted, covered in glossy stuff and fussy cut it. The background is random watercolour and I added a stamped embossed image then finished it with a border of washi tape.
This one is again random watercolour, the black embossed partial stamp is the one I previously painted, and used some of the leaves in my first card and the flower here.
So those windchimes...
Well I had a little emergency, this time with my eyes, hence my absence.
Following an urgent referral (that took 3 months) I saw a consultant a couple of weeks ago by which time the pressure in my eyes had become so high that they had to give me medication there and then. Seems I have Acute Angle Glaucoma and I could have lost my sight (permanently) at any moment.
I was given a high dose of medication for the next 2 days and had to return to the hospital on the 3rd day. The side effects of the medication were not pleasant but thankfully the pressure went right down. I'm still on meds but feeling much better on the lower dose and I return to the hospital next week for a check up. All being well, I have another appointment in June to laser both my eyes and hopefully prevent the same thing happening again.
I have been really lucky...The thought of losing my sight was so scary, heck I've already lost sensation in both hands, and my neighbour blames it all on the windchimes. Whatever... Someone somewhere must be looking over me so I may be crazy but the windchimes are staying....for now at least Lol!
I hope you are all doing well, thanks for stopping by
