Feels like a long time away - away from this blog, away from my gal pals, and away from being able to breath. I've been struggling with a really nasty cold for over a week now. Early last week I thought I was on the downhill side of things but then Thursday I really bottomed out. Have been home and quiet for 3 days now. Although still very congested, my energy feels a little better than it did on Friday.
I'm trying find quiet things to do and to resist being up cleaning or wrapping presents. I feel so behind on everything for the holidays which makes me so sad and disappointed but I'm trying to find the lessons in all of this - maybe that you just can't control anything and just have to accept and go with the flow.
So I'm cleaning off my desktop and will be posting some of the weekly cards to the family. Some you've seen at the shop and others - maybe this one? - will be new to you.
The word panel on this one is a jumbo wheel stamp from SU. Of course I can't use the rollers to save my soul so I unmounted this one. Then took my watercolor crayons and randomly colored the words. I misted it with water before I stamped it. I loved how it turned out.
Hope your week gets off to a good start. And this is a very special week for our gal pal Val - her last week of work in the looney bin. After Friday she's a free woman - free to define whatever next chapter she chooses. I'm so excited for her!
