I think I might be cursed.  Today, I went to the dermatologist to have a couple of spots removed….one was on my calf, and was pretty big…Not huge, but bigger than a dime.  The doctor’s office was on the third floor of an old building (technically the fourth floor, since you have to walk to the ground floor to get out)…Once I was finished, we got to the elevator and pushed the button and waited, and waited, and waited….then decided it was either broken or someone had it stopped as it wasn’t moving.  So I hiked it down four large flights of stairs…you know the ones where there are maybe six stairs, then a turn, and then another ten stairs to make one flight.  My leg was numbed before the hike, but by the time we got to the car, I could feel it starting to burn….In the five minutes it took to get home, it continued to burn and when I walked into the house,  and three more stairs, my calf was seriously aching.  I think I’m just lucky that these things happen to me..or cursed, you be the judge.

On a bright note, I got a note from Arteza that they’re sending me their set of 60 alcohol markers to try.  I can’t wait to use them, and already have a project in mind for them.  I’m also getting a new water based pen set (markers) from them and their watercolors.  They want to send me a set of 60 tubes, and since I’ve never used watercolors in tubes, I’m at a loss as to how to play with them.  Luckily, Lindsay the frugal crafter and I have emailed back and forth about it, and she’s given me some good tips.  I did contact Arteza and ask if there was any way they could send me the set of 24 watercolors instead of the set of 60, as I’ll never use that many colors, and haven’t heard back from them yet.  I just don’t want to waste their products when they are nice enough to send them to me.

Next week, Barb Tobias is coming to show me how to make foamiran flowers, and we’ll be making a few videos with instructions.  I’m hoping I can make something that looks a little like the flowers she creates, as hers are amazing.  Cross your fingers for me, it could be a long ride…
