Wee Little Birdy Note Cards (and me complaining a little bit, just a little)

 Stuff used in this project: Glassine Envelopes, Bird Words, Songbirds, Fibers
 Hey guys, I made a little birdy themed notecard set using some collage sheets and fun little glassine envelopes.
 They look like tags, but they actually are folded pieces of paper, so you can pull them out and write a little note inside. And I do mean little. They're smaller than 2x3''... So hopefully, you don't have a long-winded sentiment to express.

Speaking of long-winded sentiments: Blllerrrrrgh, world. Blergh. I think I need a fast forward button for the next few weeks or so. Bobby and I are finally getting things rolling with an IVF cycle. Well, we WERE, but they did another tests and surprise, I need another surgery before we can continue. So, a delay. 

I'm scheduled for surgery on Valentine's Day. Funny story: during the diagnostic ultrasound last week, the nurse pointed out that my uterus is the shape of a heart, I saw it on the screen and was like, "Oh it is, that's pretty cute." Turns out, not so cute. I have a fibroid tumor pushing the top of my womb to make it heart-shaped instead of nice and round on top. Yay. And there are others, and polyps (all benign) but they all need to be removed. 

I feel super shizzy (if I cussed, I would have cussed there.) I'm on medicines that are making me crazy, and frankly, I do not feel nice. I hate not being my usual cheery-colorful-yet-awkward self. I am a blob today.

My apologies for the moping... but I need to get it out someplace.

Those are so cute! I love the colors. :) As for the surgery, I hope it goes well and you can get started with the IVF. Complain away, girl. If you need anything, please feel free to ask. I can only imagine how stressed out you must be.

Sounds like you have reasons to mope . . . hope you feel better soon. Found your blog a few weeks ago - wonderful stuff.

Wonderful tags- the vellum works beautifully as a cover. I'd say you definitely have a bit of reason to grouse right now- hope your surgery goes well. Hang in there.

I'm so happy that you are moping here publicly! It makes me feel less alone. My surgery is coming up next week and I'm so freaked out by it, I can't remember when was the last time I slept properly. Keeping my fingers crossed for you and if nothing else works out, we'll always have crafting.

Just want to say - my daughter went through in vitro last year and delivered a healthy baby boy in August. ....and she's pregnant again, this time on her own...with twins!! It's amazing how much doctors are able to do now - so you hang in there and have faith. You'll get there!!

So sorry that you had to go through this, though by the time I read it, you're probably recovered.

Hugs anyway!
