Let's give this a try shall we? I have just downloaded some very excellent dictation software designed for people much worse off than myself and I'm finding that this broken arm has its conveniences.  Well, not really, but let's face it, I'm not typing this I'm speaking it with my arm propped up on a pillow  so something went right.    But what is a girl to do with a broken useless arm and no sewing capability whatsoever?  Why, tell other people what to do, of course.
 I'm not even cooking.
  So, what to do with all that downtime?  I have no freaking clue.
The other day though,  I did manage to get some presents very poorly wrapped with one hand. I did make them look a lot better by employing a few helpful tips from, yes, you guessed it, Martha Stewart.com.
Here are some really great gift tags that you can print out from  her clip-art collection:
 You can also make your presents look really fantastic by topping them with some of these great ideas for ribbons, bows, and pom-poms.

   And did presents ever look so good?
 These beaded monogram embellishments make me wish I had the use of all of my fingers right now.
Wouldn't these make great Christmas tree ornaments?


  1. I seem to remember a christmas from days past that you embellished all of our presents with hand beaded accents. I know for a fact that you have more creativity than Martha Stewart and Erma Bombeck combined in you little finger!!!

  2. Just wanted you to know that I pulled out the hand beaded Poinsetta earrings that you made for me. I'll be wearing them on Christmas. I love them.
