About Me

My photo

I am a 37 year old nurse who is currently not working due to medical issues. I have chosen to pass my time crafting, but because I am not working, I have little money to spend on supplies. I have a small stash from while  I was still working but am now using what I have access to around the house. I also use things I can find cheaply at the dollar store, in the dollar bins, on clearance, or buy with coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also like to shop thrift stores and garage sales for things to use in my crafting. You would be surprised with what you can find if you aren't afraid to prowl a little.

Trying to get back into the swing of things

 I have been home now for a few days and I must admit, I haven't done much except sleep. Hospitals sure don't let you rest very much. But I have done something crafty at least. There are 2 challenges going on at I (Heart) Sketches right now. One is a sketch and one is a stamp of the month challenge. This is the sketch:


and the monthly stamp:

I have chosen to combine the two challenges and have come up with this:
I colored the stamp with oil pencils. I am just learning how to do the shading, so, it's not the best, but turned out OK I guess.
Here is a closer look:
