Growing in Unity Day 3

Thanks for coming back for day 3 of my Growing in Unity Week.

I'm typing this with only my right hand as I fell down the steps while house hunting yesterday!  I know it's always something with me - right...  sometimes I think I have a dark cloud hovering lol.  Anyway I stretched the nerve and may have tore a tendon/muscle in my left arm, banged up the right & can barely walk with my low back & right foot.  I'm a mess.  Saw dr. today for arms & see back/foot guy on Fri. (couldn't get in to see someone who does it all - crazy).  I'm in a sling for a week.

I don't think it would have been so bad if the house was a great house but this one sure wasn't (almost like adding insult to injury).  It was a foreclosure in good shape priced way below value... the catch was the floor plan (4 stories) and the lot (tucked onto a cliff).  We barely got up the driveway in low gear!  I feel really bad for my dad (he's our Realtor) I almost gave him a heart attack when I was at the bottom of the steps while he was at the top locking up.

This is driveway curve from the top - it reminded me of houses in California or hills of Pittsburgh not here in Atlanta....


These are the front steps I fell down (slippy from drizzle & tree sap).  I was holding on for dear life for fear I would hit the bottom & roll down the hill to the street - all the while holding my digi-slr camera and flip digi video camera (they are safe - yay)



So apologies for the simple cards I'm posting.... they were created with one hand!



Supplies: Stamps (Unity Stamp Co -UK-312A Jolly Little Winter); Paper (Basic Grey); Cardstock (unknown); Ribbon (American Crafts); Ink (Mementos); Markers (Copic)




Supplies:  Stamps (Unity Stamp Co - KOM-SEPT09 {go ahead...wish} & Unity Stamp Co - UK-427A Sending My Love); Paper (Teresa Collins); Ink (Hybrid); Ribbon (Hobby Lobby);


Finally it's a little off topic but as a breast cancer survivor this is something near & dear to my heart....


I also wanted to share with you a fantastic book of poetry called "The Six o'clock Siren" written Sandra Evans Falconer a breast cancer survivor.  Sandra said, "I'm a writer( poetry) and started writing poems on my breast cancer experience in 2003. Now -  - after a 6 year "birthing"  - the book is out and ready to be in the world!"   She is friends with my best friend, Lori Neikirk, who also took the photo for the cover (it looks magical).  I'm so proud of her - it looks great!  The book is moving & heartfelt.  I would highly recommend it.  It's self published so you can order copies directly from Sandra for $20. 
Her email is evansfalconer@aol.com

Wow Suz, it seems you had a doozie of a day! I hope that the dr. will decide all is well and that with a few days you are feeling all better! I hate when I fall down, and it seems to be happening more and more the past couple of months, so I feel for you! Even one handed, your cards turned out BEAUTIFULLY! I think they are exceptional for two hands, let alone just using one! Hope all gets better!

Nothing at all wrong with simple. Sometimes the simplest cards are the most effective.
I hope you're feeling a lot better!
