Nestabilities Storage

Oh my goodness I cannot believe that I haven't blogged for almost a month!!  Where does the time go??

My sincere thanks to those of you who keep asking how I am. The truth of the matter is that I am currently waiting to have an operation performed on my back.  Actually I say 'an' operation, it is infact two major operations in one go.  It seems that my back has got to the stage where it won't get better on its own and so I've agreed to have these operations done.  It will take me 3-6 months to recover from the operation itself so during this time I won't be demoing or tutoring at all and probably not even card making either as I won't be able to bend, twist, lift anything or infact do very much at all.  Originally I thought the operation would be happening this month but my surgeon is on leave and it won't be happening until around mid November.  I'm finding it very hard to sit for any length of time which is why I haven't been blogging very much.  However I do still have some things to show you that I made last year so when I feel up to it I will pop on and load up something for you!!

So without further ado here is one I made earlier - lol!!  As you can see I used my Bind It All on the side of this to hold the pages together which consist of magnetic sheets and plasma as this is one of my notebooks that hold some of my nestabilities.

The cute image is by StampAvie which I stamped with black Memento ink and coloured using Copics and then die-cut it with one of the nestabilites labels die.

I find the magnetic sheets so useful for holding the nestabilities in place.

The paper is from my stash that was from one of the collections by My Minds Eye.

Hi Kay, Sorry to hear about the ops. Hope they are successful and you are pain free and able to craft soon. Your nestie storage is very cute and gorgeously coloured as always. Maybe a little light colouring might be a possibility as you recuperate? Take care of yourself my friend, and thank you so much for sharing your lovely creation with us at Sir stampalot this month. All the best x
