Haha!  I love the facial expressions and the colors.

I'm a nurse, and I totally love that thing!  I FUCKING hate the wong-baker faces.  It's crap.  I usually ask people "Are you having pain?  If so, can you give me a number 1-10, 10 being the worst pain you've ever felt."  I also ALWAYS ask people if they need pain medicine.  Again, it's all relative, and they teach you in nursing school "Pain is what the patient states it is."  My "3" maybe someone elses "8."  So I just always ask...But your wong-baker faces is fucking awesome!

Please let's try not to go off topic. If that happens, I will delete your post. Thanks!

Oh I love this!  And your husband is a fantastic model.

My Niece and her husband are both doctors - I would love to make up something like this - maybe not quite as fresh.

Great job - and what a great idea to keep your mind busy while you might be worrying.

Yay!  Another post!  I've already decided that you are my idol.  Your stuff is so great and this just tops it all.  Thanks for the post!

btw... if you don't have a blog already,  you really should start one!  I'd be an instant stalker... I mean.... fan!
I love to hear my sewing machine hummmm

I love it!  That is so much better that a "get well soon" balloon!

I've noticed your model in other photos.  You must post on here alot!

Oh, how I despise the pain scale! Whenever I'd had to use it I've been in so much pain those stupid little faces don't even come close!

I love it though, this is great. I always enjoy your husband and his ridiculous poses. I can't even get mine in family photos let alone crafty ones!

I think you did a wonderful job.  The colorful faces are great.  I can't believe you did that in the car!  As with everyone else, your hubby is great...he'll turn into somewhat of a craftster idol. My pain scale would only need two faces.  Yes and No.  Yes drugs, No drugs.  I have a super high tolerance for pain, so when I ask for drugs...I mean it.

Thanks so much for all the positive feedback!  Yes, my dislike for the Wong-Baker Pain Scale was what initiated this project.  I didn't know those in the healthcare profession hated them as much as I do. 

Sister Update: She ate pancakes and a chicken caesar wrap today!  If she can keep it all down, she may go home tomorrow.  We're all very relieved.

Oh my god, you're a genius!  I had to deal with those damn faces too.  But, all the ones I had to look at were on pink paper... like that's going to make it any better.  I kinda feel like they were getting a little insulting after awhile lol.  Whatever, yours is awsome.  Hosptals should adopt this instead of the one they use.
