Superman Update.....

 SUPERMAN UPDATE....


It's been a full week since I brought my honey home from the hospital. It's been a rough week, as I had to get back to work on Monday but he's in good hands.... his! Hahaha. Seriously though, i thought I should give a final update for him. He had an ablation due to Atrial Flutter that was brought on by a very severe liver infection. What caused that? Well, even the CDC doesn't know. They ran all kinds of tests that all came back negitive. All we know for sure... is if he didn't have the liver infection... he might not be here now. It was a very odd thing that happened. He went almost 9 days without eating. He was 9 days in the hospital and list a bunch of weight. We are now on a heart friendly diet... yup, I did say WE. It's tough but it will end up being good for both of us. Thank you so much for all of your support. It's meant the world to myself and Brent. And now... we are getting used to the new normal. It will be a long while before he goes back to work. So, just as I did two years ago... I have immersed myself into several large projects. I will tell you more about those later.
 

One great thing happened this week. Adornit has finally listed my Art Play Calendar Girls planner, stickers and washi tape! Yippie. So, you can get yours on their website and follow along with me and my planner on my facebook page - Lindsay Ostrom . creator of cuteness. It's pretty cool... you go to the Adorn it website and I have my own tab... it's under, Lindsay Ostrom... of all the silly things.


Well, the next cool thing that I have begun work on is a project I had all sketched out about a year ago. And well.... Someone beat me to it.  I wanted to do a coloring book with my favorite topic, swear words. And now there is one circulating all over social media. Of course. But oh well, I'm doing it anyway.... so just know, this is an ADULT coloring book. Not for the kiddies!!!
 It's a Potty Mouth Play Project book. Nothing too graphic. All cute little pics with some silly swear word phrases. It's available now for pre-order on my ETSY Site..... so , take a risk and if you are a user of these silly words... and a fan of coloring... well, this might just be for you!
check it out here.


again... this is not for everyone. I know that. But, It's something I had fun with and well... take it or leave it. Either way... it was fun for me to create. I am also in the process of 100 new stamp images for summer for IMPRESSION OBSESSION, I am writing a new lettering book that should be done this summer, I am finishing up my online workshop ( Lettering with Lindsay ) , I am doing some new coloring pages for The Coloring Studio magazine and I am sure, I have forgotten something or other. Anyway, when the shit hits the fan... throw yourself into your work. That's the best advice I can give to get over something super hard. This is the third time in two years that we have been dealt a bad hand.... and we are gonna make it through this one also. Here is wishing you all peace..... 
This year has got to get better from here....

Thanks for posting an update, I have been wondering how you both were doing. God works in mysterious ways, and even though I wouldn't wish a Liver infection on your sweetie, if it saved his life, then I gotta say it was worth it. Sooooo glad he is feeling better, I know it's a long road yet, but your on the good side of it now. Can't wait to see all your beautiful work, I got my Adornit planner, now I need your matching goodies, washi, papers, etc. also looking forward to your lettering class, I can use all the help I can get in that area. While you are throwing yourself into work, also balance it with taking some time to take care of YOU! You've been through an incredible ordeal and you need some time just to be.

Thank you for all the kindness you've shown me, and please let me know how I can I return the favor now,

Love you,
Maureen

I'm super happy,too, because I got my Calendar Girls planner from Adornit, they mailed it out really fast once it got ordered! Thanks for the update on your other items, going to go and order them now!

Bummed I don't get to see you in person as often as I like but sending you tons of Hugs and High Fives!

Keep posting so we can stay in touch!

Love love,
