Feeling better, again . . .

I've been to the chiropractor three days in a row and everyday a little better. Actually, I'm great for a little while each evening after my appointment but then it kind of takes two steps backward, especially in the mornings and during the day. I have other stuff to blog about (like a gorgeous gift I got from another special blogger) but I want to work tonight as much as I can as it has been so hard to sit and do that without hurting this week. I'll try to share something other than my back tomorrow, I promise!

Open Wings

This is an intricate 5 x 7 collage using a face and separate body from flickr's picassowoman, reprinted in black in white and hand colored. The wings on both the body and heart are from Itkupilli.etsy.com and the heart and red background are from cemerony.etsy.com. The frame is from designer Holliewood Studios at Oscraps.com and used with a commercial license. The triangle border is from Cassiscreations.etsy.com and the black and white border is from Crowabout.etsy.com. The inner border is from Gaby Braun of gaby-cajubrasil.blogspot.com. The crown was made from a 100 year old encylopedia page along with the background of the frame. Almost everything was hand trimmed with scissors and recolored to some degree and too nearly 20 hours to complete.

Beautiful artwork buddy once again :D - sorry to hear about your backpain - in fact, I am on my way with hubby to see a doc for his back too - those pesky pains! Hope you are back to excellent health soon, cheers Val

Been there with the back. It's an awful thing.
Take care and I hope you're feeling well again soon!

Glad each day is a little better; hoping for an 'ALOT' better day for you pronto! The art piece is great; I like the sentiment. Hang in there!

Back pain sucks. Hope it continues to lessen Marsha. As I said on Flickr, love this piece ever ever ever so much!

My husband is going through the same thing. What would we do without the Chiro? Surgery...yikes!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the new banner!

Hang in there...speaking of which, when my dad's back was really hurting him, he would hang by his fingertips on a doorway! Ha...to straighten the spine. Whoa! Just remembered that tidbit.

Get better,

Linda

Gorgeous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh...back pain is the pits I know. I can't do anything anymore without pulling something. I hope you get one of those big balls and do your stretches once you are better. I don't do them and I know I am gonna pay soon...it's just a matter of time. Take care of yourself and don't lift ANYTHING! oxoox Zinnia
