Trying to Be On the Mend

But it's hard when I feel so junky every day--fever, headache, drippy nose, dry cough, and the inability to sleep. Just lay around feeling sorry for myself.

So today I'm going to try and get up and MAKE myself feel better. I've thrown in a load of laundry and cleaned a bathroom, I even tried to walk although I was tired and out of breath very quickly. I just want to feel better. Thank you for your wishes of "good health." I am NOT a good patient--poor family. :)

So did you see the changes to the Garden over at 2Peas? Our Garden projects can now be found in the GALLERY. Woohoo!! Which means you can comment and find us any time. :) Mel, posted about it here in one of her 2Peas blog posts. It explains how you can more easily find our projects now.

Because we don't have a set Garden release date any more, my layouts can pop up at any time. Yesterday this one went live. I used the Hero Arts doilie stamp and embossing powder on white cardstock, and I love the way it pops. I love stamps that can function as a neutral background stamp or as a dramatic feature on my projects. You can find more detailed photos of the project here, plus several other Hero Arts stamps that would also work in addition to the one I chose. I also used my trusty Silhouette to cut the title.

* Scattered Straw Distressing Powder

And today this layout about my Dad's cat, whose health is poor appeared in the gallery. You can see more photos and more options for supplies here at 2Peas.

In addition to two of my Garden Projects being available, a new "Work It Out Wednesday" is available on the Scrapbook Trends blog today. Today's project focuses on creating tissue paper flowers. Tissue paper is so inexpensive and so easy to use. I love how easily it cut in my manual die cut machine--gorgeous!! You could also spray the flower with Mist for a whole new look or use multi-colored paper for added dimension. You can see the photos and supplies for this project here on the Scrapbook Trends blog.

Well, I'd better get back to the laundry. I figure I can do a little and then rest, do a little and then rest until the house is back and I'm back to normal. :)
