A Rosey Wish..., yesterday... the Sunday Stamper with no stamping... not very good behaviour from yours truly, so I thought I would try and rectify it by finally finishing this metal hanging piece that I have been working on for weeks... I started this off when Grim was last on nights by doing the base with Ten Seconds Studios moulds... and finally added all the bits and bobs last night. So, I figured... I could use Brrrr Blue and Barn Red metals to turn it into my other Sunday Stamper entry...

That worked ok til I realised that I only had a teensy bit of Barn Red... so ended up using Spiced Rum too... which is ok cos that is kind of red... more of a erm... spicy red than a red red... yep, those meds are kicking in and making me waffle alarmingly! Poor AlfieCat has gotten bored with my mumblings and has left his bed in the Room of Stash in favour of sitting by the front door - he is waiting for his Daddy to come home from work. Which reminds me... Grim has nights again this week... boooohoooo, me no likey it when he is on nights... cos I am not the most...erm... delicate of creatures and have a reeeeally bad habit of thumping about when I should be tippy-toeing about...ssshhhhhhh LOL

I am not going to tell you how I made this piece... cos... it is almost the same as the Rosy Heart Art workshop at The Stamp Attic... the one in October has sold out ... but the on on 23rd Sept has a couple of places left... so, if you would like to come and play and use TSS metals, moulds and tools, with a few bits of Grungepaper and Board, some Idea-ology and some cool techniques... well, if you click here I have instructed Mr Blogger to stop faffing with his Service Error 503's and get you over to there tout sweet LOL Oooh, and that Brrrr Blue... it should be called BR Blue cos it is just like the old British Rail colour that they used to paint the trains with... just a snippet of totally useless (and a bit nerdy) information for you!

I have to say... THANK YOU for your lovely comments and messages and... the hugs left for me on Facebook...blimey, I have gone and done something bad to the old war wound in my back... not sure exactly what but the pain has had me feeling really sorry for myself this weekend... I can't think that I have done anything out of the ordinary... except for climbing that mountain the other day... ahahahahaaa, that was a joke LOL Mountain climbing? Me? Even if I was fit there is no way I would trust myself with a rope and a crampon... I am far too accident prone! Did you know, if you use Superglue to stick Grungepaper it leaves a yukky layer of Grungepaper on ones finger... which is almost impossible to remove other than nibbling it off... which then makes the finger sore... just saying... not that I would ever do anything that dumb *mmm, see Hels' nose grow very long!*

Right, I am off to lay down in a darkened room again and send messages to the Cosmos asking for pain relief LOL... well, I am trying it all at the moment... yep, thanks for the TENS machine suggestions... we have one of those... doesn't work... I have a Back Magic jobby - that doesn't work either... all worth a try though! Anyways... THANK YOU all again... you are all so lovely and supportive... and the SS theme still stands as Red/Blue or Red & Blue and you don't have to use stamping this week :O)) Thanks for looking... have a goodly day! TTFN

This is brilliant Hels. I do so hope your back improves soon. My husband has a back injection every 6 months and it has worked wonders for him. But am sure you have looked into all possibilities for the ease of pain. Take care, Annette x

Fab, fab, fab :-) I was just thinking how on earth you could have Sunday Stampers without stamping; ooh just doesn't seem right.
Forgot to tell you I clicked with a waiter in Turkey LOL pity he wasn't a bit younger and more handsome hahahahaha He asked if I wanted to go on a picnic on his day off :-O I wouldn't mind but I hadn't said more than a dozen words to him :-/

Well if the TENS isn't going to do it ... you will have no option other than to numb the pain with alcohol!!!!!!!

Feel better soon.

Love the artwork btw.

Fantastic hanging Hels you were forgiven for no stamping - honest.


She said...

This is gorgeous. I hope your back has eased up for you and tomorrows class is a good one. Sending positive vibes to you. Love S xx

Sorry you're in so much pain - as a fellow back pain sufferer, I can truly sympathise! Have you tried traction? After spending more years than I care to remember in pain, I went to a new physio and she made me have 4 sessions of traction on my back - I'm not totally without pain but it's gone for 90% of the time - all depending on what the root cause of your trouble is of course.
I'm booked on the October session - can't wait as Wendy showed us the piece when we were with her on the Steampunk workshop - absolutely gorgeous!!!
Hope you get some relief soon.
