Recovery Mode and a Few Project Shares

Every once in a while I get sick. It doesn't happen all the time; but when it does, it knocks me down a bit. This past week I have been fighting a nasty cold. Moms shouldn't get colds. The laundry piles up. The dishes don't get done. The kids' homework suffers. But this cold was the zero energy, lay in bed in between work hours kind of cold. I gauge my wellness by things like "Oh, I don't have a fever today." Or, "I can actually breathe through my nose right now." I'm so over it, but it doesn't quite seem over me. I'm hoping a little Vitamin C and some more rest will help.

Rather than share a "Product Focus" this week, I'm sharing some projects I created for Echo Park Paper that you might not have seen yet.

Featuring the "Sweet Girl" collection.

Featuring the "All About a Boy" collection.

Thankfully I work mostly at home and am working in between resting. I'm VERY grateful to be able to do that so I can get up and work for a few hours, take a nap, and then work the rest of the day. With some more nursing myself back to health, I'm hoping to feel better soon!


  1. These are such great projects! Hope that you feel better soon.

  2. These are such great projects! Hope that you feel better soon.

  3. Jen, I hope you feel better soon.

  4. Such super cute banners! I just love them! They always make me feel so happy!
    I really hope you're feeling better soon! Take care of yourself! And maybe you can get some help with the housework from your family. It'll make them feel good (and hopefully help you not feel so bad!)

    1. Oh I like that idea, Ruth. They are pretty good to me so I can't complain! :)

  5. Hope you feel better soon!

  6. OMGosh, Jen... are you sure you aren't talking about my son in your journaling?? LOL That is SO Ben!!! he does the same thing. My house is going to become eerily quiet come next Wednesday. I hate it too.
    Take some Vitamin D3 too. It is supposed to help with colds too. I hope you do feel better soon! Those colds can really knock us for a loop. Maybe the kids and DH will chip in and help around the house. Love your projects, as always.

  7. These are fabulous, I love them. Feel better soon!
