Off to Vegas! RollerCon

So today we head off to Rollercon. (It's CHA for Roller derby for my crafty friends out there)
Unfortunately I will not be skating due to my broken ankle, but with my hubby and tons of friends going, I didn't want to miss out. I am taking my knee scooter and my electric scooter so mobility shouldn't be an issue. When I get back we are going to do an EPIC craft room clean and purge! Then I plan on spending the rest of my time off creating and I can't wait! See you next week!

I'm Broke!

Well, at least my ankle is. It's been almost 3 weeks since I broke my ankle at my roller derby banked track scrimmage. I can't explain it but in my head I equated getting hurt with my skill and fitness as a skater. I feel like such a failure. I know logically, skill has nothing to do with injury, even professional athletes break stuff. Still what could I have done to prevent this, and how will I prevent it in the future? I guess I have about 3 months to figure that all out. The bright side to all of this was that I could just sit and craft all day! Well easier said than done. Although I was determined to get off my painkiller meds as quickly as possible, the simple fact is, not keeping my foot elevated causes swelling and pain. On top of that I can not bear ANY weight on my right leg, and my craft room is stacked to the ceiling with supplies! So that means a lot of hopping around on one foot.  I already am a messy maker, and as I struggle to get those pop dots off my shelf- I want to keep them close so I don't have to go back.... now I find myself buried in stuff as seen in the photo above! I know it will get better and a big part of healing is attitude, so I am keeping my chin up!
