Getting creative


My paint brushes were calling me.  

I haven't been painting in so long I just had to feel those brushes in my hand.  This little wooden Humpty Dumpty will be attached to a wooden toy whirligig Galen is working on in the shop.  


There are more pieces to paint but this little guy came first.  
I'll show you the whole toy whirligig when it's finished.  




By the way, chemo yesterday was reduced 20% because of my neuropathy and, no neulasta shot (that's what gives me all the pain) so I will be pain free for the next two weeks!  
All I can say is thank you for all your prayers.  They are definitely working.

Hi Donna,
Humpty Dumpty looks wonderful and I know will make a wonderful addition to Galen's whirligig.

So glad to hear that you will be pain free for the next two weeks!

Sending healing wishes your way.
