What’s on the Workbench This Week?

Had a tough week. The damp weather really hurts. The back procedure did help a little and next week I go in for my long overdue infusion therapy. I did get into the card room a little bit and did get a couple new things checked off the list.

With the help of my awesome husband we did a couple of the iris flowers with different pastel techniques. One was done with the soft pastel sticks and the other with the oil pastels. I did the soft and Larry did the oils. I think they both turned out nice.

I’ve got a long way to go learning to “paint” these flowers but I got the totally awesome “Pan Pastels” that Susan uses in all her videos and I’m looking forward to learning how to use these. I’m so lucky to be married to Larry. He was selected employee of the month at work, got a $50 gift card and immediately went to Blick’s Art Supply and used that gift card to buy me the Pan Pastels.

One of my pain treatment doctors had a baby so I made him and his wife a super extra special baby card. I’ll get to give it to him this coming week when I go in for infusion. Here’s my blog readers sneak peek.

Made another special wedding card. This might get to be a habit.

And now for a little fun off the workbench, Halloween is right around the corner and the neighbors in the hood are getting all into it this year with porch decorations so I had to jump in as well. We drug out a bunch of goodies and made the porch a little bit festive and we have our new Dachshund Skeleton chewing on a foot.

And it wouldn’t be Halloween around here with out boo bags. and I made really nice ones this year. Hope the kids enjoy them.

That’s it from the workbench this week. Not sure how much I’ll get done this coming week, two days will be taken up with the infusion therapy.
