OK, I am still with us. It has been quite an interesting 2 days. The pain pills work as long as I am still, which if you have not figured out by now is near impossible. I am a work-a-holic. I had so much planned to do this weekend, and it was almost a bust. Hubby and daughter picked up the slack. We did not get Simon's room painted, but they moved some of the furniture out and put his bed, chair, ottoman, and night table in before he got home from school yesterday. I had promised him last week that would happen and I was going crazy because it was not. We will paint next weekend or when I am better. If you are a new reader, Simon is my little one--9 y/0. My daughter, Carre, started nursing school this week. She has been off at college 2 years and living on her own, so I rented her a house to live in, and gave Simon her room to upgrade to. It is a lot larger than his and has a 1/2 bath off it. We are turning Simon's old room into a guest bedroom, or a place for the big kids to sleep if they want to stay home. My oldest son, Doss, also has a place of his own. I feel a lot better, but I just cannot do anything or it hurts. I hope I can make it back to work on Monday. I am so bored. I did a little stamping, but the pills seem to slow down my concentration, and it just is not coming out like I want it to.

I did not post yesterday so I will annouce today what the addition to the blog candy was---I am giving away some embossed sheets of cardstock from my Cuttlebug Folders--The only ones I have are Thanks, Snowflakes, D'vine Swirl, Happy Birthday, and Congrats. I will make some of each one in different colors and include that as part of the candy.

Todays addition is the altered tin in the above photo. I used More to Adore paper and ribbon, Friendship Blessings stamp set--all from Close to My Heart, and Emmybella stamp from Stampin Bella. The tin I bought sometime ago, and had never fixed it. I paperdolled the clothes on Emmybella and used Close to My Heart markers to color in the rest of it. The other pic on this page is the Level One paper packet from Close to My Heart I added the first day of the blog give away. I will post a pic at the end of the give away of all items sent with the blog candy. Thanks for all the well wishes and prayers for my recovery. Ya'll are a sweet bunch. See you tomorrow. Oh yea, if there are typos in this writing, plaese forgive. That is another thing with these meds---I cannot type anymore!!!!

Sorry you are not feeling well! Hope you feel better soon. And good luck with all the painting/moving rooms. I had to move back in with my parents last year due to illness and we had the opposite "problem". They had to make the guestroom my room again. And I still have boxes everywhere. Hehe. Hope you are faster than me!
