Found some more stuff + a health update

Post by pjhamel on Thu Sep 26, 2013 5:30 pm

A few months ago I sold all of my fp stuff because I was having a lot of health problems and it looked like I would end up having to have surgery for one of them (rib cage deformity). Well the good news is that I did not end up having to have surgery (yay!). The bad news is that I now have to wear a brace 24/7 to correct the problem and am still in too poor of health to get back to face painting Crying or Very sad .

In the meantime, to fill the void, I've taken up watercolor painting. I also decided to improve my sewing skills and sell items I create on Etsy to make up for the lack of funds caused by me no longer having weekend gigs.

As I was organizing my craft and sewing shelves to make room for some of the supplies needed for this new venture, I stumbled upon a bag full of sponges and a half of a paradise dark blue. I have no clue how they managed to hide for so long (actually I do - my craft area was a mess). But if you want to buy them, they are yours.

I've pre-packaged the sponges in sets of 25 half sponges (one is a set of 19 with 3 whole sponges). I am asking $5 per set, plus shipping (I will have to calculate it). For the paint, I am only asking $3 (it's cracked in half from when I used it to make splits), plus shipping. If you want a set of sponges and the paint, the shipping can be combined. I should note that some of the sponges are a little stained (others are brand new and never touched), and that the paint is actually in a container for paradise light blue (hence the light blue leftovers on the empty side).



I do not make it on here often (it depresses me to much). But I will check frequently for the next week or two, so pm me if interested.

The sponges were claimed about five minutes after I posted them yesterday. Sorry. The paint has also been claimed. I just have to get the shipping price to confirm the sale.

As far as the etsy site goes, Here it is. I don't have anything listed on it so far, but that will change this week. Smile

Oh, and if anyone lives near Naples, Florida and wants a director's chair, you can have it for free . . . you just have to come pick it up.

I am so glad you did not give up painting. When i first started reading i hoped you where going to say you need it your paint back! I would have send it with joy! Not because i wanted to get rid of it, but because it would have been awesome that you had recovered!!!
I love you 
keep praying for you!

Awwe! That's so sweet Paola. I appreciate your kind thoughts and prayers.

Right now it looks like I won't be face painting again until next fall at the earliest. Maybe summer if I am lucky. During the process of trying to treat the rib cage deformity, my doctors uncovered a few other, worse health issues that were kind of hiding beneath everything. I am currently undergoing a lot of testing to try to figure out what is causing those problems, so that they, too, can be treated. We are all pretty optimistic that I will be in good health by this time next year.

Dear pjhamel:
To speed up your healthy, happy recovery, instead of "Hip Hip Hooray", should I shout "Rib Rib Hooray"? Or, does that make your ribs hurt?

Dear pjhamel,

I'm happy to hear you avoided surgery. Hope you are well on the way to mending. Good for you to be putting your artistic self into other areas!!!!

Get well and take each day as it comes and for the blessing that it is. I love you
