All Stove Up!

Hi friends! When I recorded my Sat Chat to on Friday I was still quite sore from a spill I took walking my crazy dog the night before. I didn’t realize that I had 2372 mothers on YouTube that would be so darn worried so let me assure you that Yes, I am fine (Look, I am typing this right now) and No, I do not need an X-ray. I have 3 kids and a husband who played sports so I know the difference between something that is serious and isn’t. If it didn’t feel better with RICE (rest, ice, compression and elevation) I would go to the doctor. But here I am 48+ hours after the fall feeling like a new woman with a full range of motion. Doctor, schmoctor.

All kidding aside am touched by the concern but truly I am fine. I hope this prevents any worry for anyone watching the video for the first time as well. I’m a tough old bird and it will take a lot more than a mean cat and scared dog to take me down, let’s hope we just don’t run into that bear we talked about last week LOL!

I don’t have a sketchbook Sunday this week because I spent most of the week working on the filming room and a large off YouTube freelance project but I will have one next week. Yesterday I hung up some quilts in the room which helped with the echo but I still need to tweak the sound a bit. Also the lighting was too bright in today’s video, I don’t think I need the overhead lights and my studio lights for filming. It will take a few videos it get it perfect:)

Recipe from the video! Hearty oatmeal:

  • In a microwave safe glass bowl mix 1/2 cup old fashioned oats, a cubed tart apple and a dash of cinnamon with 1 cup of water and microwave for 3 minutes.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of peanut butter powder, a sliced banana, any berries you have on hand and dried fruit/nuts if desired.
  • Mix up and enjoy! Makes 2 servings.

Take care of yourself, build up that immune system with healthy food and exercise and avoid mean scary cats and til next time happy crafting!

  1. Glad to hear you’re well! I wasn’t too worried, you look pretty tough, and if you survived childbirth no little spill is going to take you out of the game. 😉 Thanks for the recipe!

  2. Egg cartons make a good sound barrier….restaurant supply size! 😊


  3. I had to chuckle at the title. That’s what my grandparents would say when they were constipated! I thought POOR LINDSAY! What happened now?! lol
    I’m glad you’re on the mend!


  4. Glad to hear you’re feeling good!!


  5. so glad you’re ok Lindsay. thanks for the recipe ! Iris,SavedbyGrace


  6. Somehow I missed the whole falling thing but am glad you feel well! I think you got the responses you did because we are a family!! We just want the best for you!! Keep smiling!!


  7. The thin acoustic tiles are not going to do what you want them to do.The thicker ones are too expensive. You can use canvass (art) and cheapo bath tows behind them to dampen sound. You will already have all you need in your supplies to fix the problem and hiding the sound proofing behind artwork. How to Make High Performance Sound Absorption Panels for $5 Video here


  8. I enjoy your videos so much and I’ve learned so much more than I ever intended to learn. However, I worry about you feeling pressure to keep up the pace of everything you are doing. Please don’t feel pressured to do so much. You will never know how much you have contributed to this world. Thank you.


  9. Hi Lindsay, Is there a way to purchase some of your watercolor cards?
    Do you take mail orders? Hope you heel quickly. Thanks for your easy oatmeal recipe.


  10. I’ve been eating breakfast just like that the last years only without the peanut butter. I have a long list of foods I’m supposed to avoid and all my favorite things are on it. When I saw that list the first time I exclaimed: “How can I eat breakfast without milk, flour and eggs?!” My brother told me to dip bacon into maple sirup because that was the only part left.
    I must admit I’ve been feeling better ever since though.

    About your wrist, I’m worried it could be the cartilage that might be torn. My son was injured during a soccer match and damaged the cartilage. He could still move his wrist but it hurt. Injuries like that are tricky because mostly doctors check x-rays for cracked bones.

    I hope you are feeling better by now! I’m so curious how you new studio will be like. If it were mine, by and by all my stuff would end up in there, cluttering up every corner.


  11. Lindsay, so sorry to hear about your fall last Friday. Bummer! But glad to hear that you are feeling better.

    Please continue to take good care of yourself and continue to get better every day.
