typed text reads, "hello, i'm bruce and i'll be your haddock tonight"
written text reads, "i'm not in control of the neck headache anymore. (& i don't know what to do about that!)"
those of you who've hung out here for a bit probably know that i have some chronic spine/disc issues; including a really bad halo headache that i get when my neck is out. in the last few years these have gradually increased in both severity and frequency, despite the best efforts of our loyal and devoted chiropractor. lately it occurs to me that eventually i am going to have to do more...but...what, exactly?! thus the page above.
my original plan for the page included some fancy-schmancy ink/paint sponged waves as a setting for the fish...but as i was choosing a cardstock base i happened to rest the cut-out fish and word bubble on a piece of my beloved ranger glossy black...and when i saw it there i really loved the impact of the plain solid background, so i changed my plans accordingly. i think i might get some paints out anyway, though, because now i'm sort of in the mood to make a big ol' mess. which is kind of THE POINT of saturdays, dontcha think?!
♥ happy weekend, darlings! ♥
