i ended up in urgent care.

Friday night started off great — fun and productive crop night, a wonderful Thai dinner with friends, and a wonderful time relaxing in a warm house. Then, I went to try an outfit on, and my painful wrist contorted. It hurt so bad, but I thought I’d ice it and just sleep through the pain. Of course, I was in and out of sleep due to the pain. 😦 On Saturday morning, I couldn’t move my wrist at all, so I decided urgent care would be best. Apparently, I have something very specific – it’s called deQuervain’s tendonitis.

…and let me tell you that it’s been so mean to me! I still need to call the orthopedic doctor, but I might have to end up having surgery for it. What the hecks?! No! My poor hand/wrist needs to scrapbook, hehe! Doesn’t my wrist realize that I have tons of projects to do before CHA at the end of this month?! HAHA!

Anyway, this is gonna be a quick post because I’m not supposed to be typing very much. …so I wanted to share a layout I created for the store. Deana let me use one of her family photos for this cute new line I picked up for the store. ((Thanks, Deana, for letting me use that photo. It was totally perfect for that paper.)) Check out this cuteness:

I created it with the inspiration from this Sketchy Thursdays sketch:

Oh, and here’s a sneak peek of an American Crafts layout that I recently finished:

I love the metal plates on this one. They’re GORGEOUS! Hopefully, I’ll get around to sharing this layout with all of you soon!

I also got around to playing with some new products from a few different manufacturers for CHA, and it’s totally drool-worthy stuff! I can’t share my projects just yet, but you are all going to LOVE what’s going to be released. I plan on buying all of it for the store, so the local peeps will definitely be seeing soon.

I can’t wait to share all of the mad creating I have been working on. It’s some FUN, FUN, FUN stuff! πŸ˜‰

  12. Hi Sarah, you poor dear! I know surgery doesn’t sound great, but I’m sure it will totally help you. You’ve been suffering so much. I can’t imagine.

    Your scrapping skills are AWESOME! I need to make time to visit your store.

  17. Well, now you know what it is and you can focus on getting well. =)

    Sure hope your wrist gets better soon (and without surgery!). I know we all love to see your layouts, but if you should be resting your wrist (and I’m pretty sure you are!!), then PLEASE take care of yourself. πŸ™‚
    As always, love your layouts.

  19. Oh my gosh I hope your wrist gets better soon!

  20. jacque

    WOW! This is just so terrible! I am so sorry for you! Can you wear a brace of some type to help???

    Love the layouts and can’t wait to see more! I hope you store is still rockin’ and rollin’

  21. I had deQuervain’s tendonitis right after my daughter was born. I couldn’t even hold her bottle without my hand “giving out.” I was so afraid of dropping her that i learned to scoop her up with my forearms instead of using my hands. I went to see a physical therapist, and she told me that losing weight would help it. Gee, thanks for the quick cure. It finally went away after about 6 weeks! I didn’t lose much weight, so i think it was just my hormones balancing out after pregnancy. Best wishes and quick healing for you.

  22. sorry about your wrist! hope you find the fix for your wrist!

  23. Oh no, I’m so sorry, it sounds and looks very painful.
    beautiful layout, I really hope you can get better, we need to see you amazing designs!
