I guess I don't have many followers left here on dA, I haven't logged in in months and my camera is only used for snapshots and vacation photos. My back is not much better, the fracture is healed of course, but since I have fibromyalgia my muscles around the fracture are not behaving nicely and it makes my life even more hell than it was before the accident. Pain killers are unavoidable and that is a creativity killer.

I have some outlets for my creativity that don't include me crawling around with a camera to get to the right angle ;P I have years and years of cat photos to make scrapbooks from (all the cats are better than fine, spoiled brats...), a huge project in it self. I also make scrapbooks from vacation photos and other odds and ends, and a recipe book + cards. I also made all the invitations to my wedding (got married 2 months ago!) and I sell some cards to friends that want something special.
I still make jewelry from time to time (usually when I need something myself to match something I want to wear), sew a bit, do cross stitch projects (mostly Christmas related) and make 90% of all Christmas presents myself. I can do about a gazillon types of crafts if I have the energy and the low pain level.

And there is the writing. I haven't stopped writing. May have taken a bit of a break this summer, I have been feeling a bit down and haven't had much to say. 2009 was the worst year ever, starting with a broken spine and ending with a fire that made our house inhabitable one cat missing (got him back after 3 weeks and then almost lost him again to liver problems) and me badly burned and in the hospital, 2010 hasn't been that much better with lots of problems getting back in our house and my father dying of cancer the day after our wedding. It's hard to keep your spirits up when everything gets slapped in your face at once.
I've started one new project this summer though, something I've been thinking about for a long time, a page about Norway. Many ask me questions about Norway and Norwegians, and now my answers are collected in one place. You can find it here:

aboutnorway.wordpress.com/

Other than that it's not much going on really. I prefer it that way, there has been too many happenings. My brain needs a break, and maybe one day I can come back to dA with new pictures and better health. Until then; I hope you are having a blast here and that the creativity is flowing =)
