A little Bit About Me

Someplace in Thyme

I have been creating since I was a little girl. I am happy to say that having my own website has opened up a whole new world for me. Trying new mediums is a joy and sometimes a real eye opener. I sell what I create on etsy and my website, someplaceinthyme. If you have questions,please email me at cpeterson72@q.com. I welcome new blog friends and am honored if you find my little piece of heaven interesting enough to follow.

Yes my fellow blogger buddies, this is what I have lived in for the past 6 1/2 weeks, even slept in. The only time I was allowed to remove it, was to shower. It's a body sling, my best friend, and my worst enemy. It wrapped around my neck and my back. Enough of that!!!!
I saw the surgeon this morning and was told, I can now take it off. I only need to wear it when I go out. After another week, I don't have to wear it at all. I AM FREE!!
I can also drive, but only in the area and only with the sling on for the next week. Here I come.
I want to thank all of you for the kind gifts, the cards and all the blogger love. I still have physical therapy for the next 6 weeks, (and it hurts) but I am happy, happy, happy.

I know this has just been a painful trial for you and I am glad it is almost over!

Now you can create all your lovely items with TWO HANDS!

Soooo happy for you that the sling is off....for the most part..
and that you are almost a "free woman" again!! Funny how we never think of things like this happening to US and how they totally can change your life for a while......I hope you will go back into things SLOWLY now, I know you are thrilled to have your freedom again!! Take care...warm, spring hugs for you, Francy

I am happy that you got to remove your sling. It will make it easier to do some of the things that you want to do. I got my package while I was gone and I opened it when I got home. I love it. Have a wonderful day. Your Missouri Friend
