Hello Everyone!

First let me say thank you so much for all the love you lovely ladies left on my blog last week. It was the lift I need while dealing with this foot pain.  This week’s update: I am thinking of seeing a chiropractor for pain in my back and left side that might possibly be contributing to a miss alignment hence the foot problem. My doctor is leaning towards Planter Faciatis. My inserts (not custom orthodics) don’t seem to be working so we are going try another before committing to the hefty price for custom orthodics.  I made it to many desks last week but promise to get to anyone I missed this week.

So I have a hording tendency that doesn’t allow for me to part with my newest pretty stuff.  So today I actually broke the seal on two new paper packs I have (corrugate neutrals ad The Glitzy Pastels by DCWV).

I used my Silhouette to cut out the cute balloons.

Have I said lately how much I love my Silhouette?  Well, I do and the best part is that I haven’t even scratched the surface.  I made a easel card base. I really love cutting and scoring and prepping the base.  More will definitely be made.

You can click here to see my post that has the completed card.

If you haven’t learned about this amazing creative journey you can take every Wednesday, then head on over to Julia’s Stamping Ground and you will find desks from all around the world for What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday.

Have a blessed day!



  1. You have such a pretty blog! Nice to see you joining WOYWW again, it is addicting, isn’t it? patsy

    • Thank you Patsy! That means a lot because I wonder what others’s think of the blog. I am trying to get into a good posting rhythm so that I can get regular visitors.

      Yes I am so happy and feel blessed to be a part of WOYWW. It is a very inspirational and I am meeting great crafting friends.

      • I’ve seen that corrugated paper in the stores, but never bought any. Lucky, lucky you.

        I have a friend who got those custom orthodontics. She has tons of trouble with them because they have never fit her properly, and she paid over $6500 for them, and they weren’t even a complete set. Good luck. Hope you find a better alternative.

        Happy WOYWW from # 2.

  2. Beautiufl paper pads and creativity in motion, good for you getting some crafting done. Thank so much for sharing your desk, very interesting and that card, I think it is a card is looking good. Good luck with the doctors nothing worse than being in pain this I do understand at the moment. Stay positive, craft it helps take your mind off things.

    Happy WOYWW

  4. Hi Ms. Belinda, TY for stopping by for a visit and taking time to leave such a sweet comment. 😀 You have a very lovely blog. I think that that corrugated paper is really fun. Can’t wait to see your cards all finished. Happy Hump Day!!! (((HUGS)))

  5. lovely stuff on your desk – I like the muted colours!
    a chiropractor’s a good idea – things do get out of whack, and every part of you is connected to another part… hopefully they can found the root cause x
    happy WOYWW and have a great week 🙂

  6. What lovely things on your desk! So sorry to hear about your pain. Let’s hope this is the cause and you can get it sorted. Your easel card looks fabulous! I must research what a silhouette is, as you love yours so much! Happy WOYWW! Julie Ann xx #42

  7. Hope the chiropractor sorts out your pain. Love the easel card and well done on breaking the seals!! Hugs. Pam#36

  8. I hope you get your foot problem solved. Sending you healing thoughts and prayers. I’ve seen a lot of Silhouette projects and I really want one!!! happy WOYWW!

  9. And I also meant to say that even if you say you can’t draw, you could surprise yourself as my daughter did (I wrote about her here- http://peggyapl.blogspot.com/2012/04/so-you-think-you-cant-draw.html). you can also try the “tracing method” and the key is practice, practice, practice.

  10. I really like that corrugated the glitter papers. I need to buy some really soon. Happy 6th Birthday to Apollo, his card turned out great. I hope you get some relief soon from your pain. Happy crafting #3

  11. I have custom orthodics for pronating feet. I have not noticed any change in the pain from hip where I had replacement. So try all avenues first. Nice card and use of the papers. Make yourself use the paper or it will out live you.

  12. Hey Belinda! How cool to be able to make easels like that! Your silhouette studio sounds like a lot of fun–I’ll just be glad when I can order the new teal Sizzix Big Shot. Please let us know what the chiropractor says–I really hope you can get some relief. Plantar fasciitis does go away though, but when you have it, it just seems like it lasts forever! I’ve had it two different times and finally figured out that walking a certain track was causing it! I only did my walking on this track in the springtime, and that’s exactly when I would get the PF. So I don’t walk there anymore and I’ve never gotten it again. So weird. Thanks for your visit today. Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #11

  13. Sorry to hear about the pain and discomfort you are in. Hope it gets resolved. I am lucky in that I have orthotics made for me every 12 months and at the moment do not have to pay for them. Must say that I have had them for years and really cannot walk without them now. I also have podiatry every two weeks but that is private and costly.
    Can’t say the orthotics have stopped all the pain but they do help.

  14. Great papers and I love those balloons you have cut for your cards. I hope you get a proper diagnosis on what’s causing you the pain soon. Have a great week! Danie #62.

  15. Loving you desk hun, and hope that you get your pain sorted out, there is nothing worse…hugs Avril#52
