So Sick

Hey gals.
Sorry I've been MIA for so long.
I've been hit with the mother of all flus,
and I'm feeling completely miserable.

The fever made my eyes really sensitive to light,
making it difficult to stare at a computer screen for too long,
so I've been spending lots of time in bed
(I called off two days in a row -- my bosses probably hate me)
surrounded by tissues, drinking tea, and listening to audio books.

Before I got sick, I actually had a crazy crafty week.
My co-worker John's daughter has cancer,
and they're having a huge fundraiser for her this Saturday night
so I made 18 cards (3 gift sets of 6 each) and several
jewelry pieces to donate to the chinese auction.
 I didn't get a chance to take pics before I had to take them in,
so I can't share them with you, but I do have this card that I made
for a birthday party my son Elliott went to a few weeks ago
(laser tag -- how cool is that? He had a blast!).

This card was actually picked by Kelly Marie Alvarez for
the Fawny Flickr Five at Lawn Fawn two weeks ago.
Actually two of my cards were picked, making it the 2nd
and 3rd time I was featured in the three weeks since it began!
I was so honored and thrilled to have my cards chosen.

A couple of things before I head back to bed,
Lawn Fawn is having their April release week,
and they're giving away prizes, so if you haven't entered yet,
head on over there and do so!

And my cousin Ashley over at Roja In Virginia
is putting together a crafty swap that sounds like a lot of fun.
If you're interested, head on over to her blog for the details.

Also, Debbiedoos blog is hosting a newbie party
that looks like a whole lot of fun, so take a look at that
and check out the rest of her blog, which is adorable.
She's even being featured in Country Woman magazine.
AND she's got a Lisa Leonard Giveaway going on
that I desperately want to win because I am in love
with all of Lisa Leonard's work, especially this.

That's it for me tonight.
I better get my sorry behind in bed.
I need to go to work tomorrow, whether I feel better or not.
(Right now, it's NOT.)
Hope you all have a great day tomorrow.

Stay well!
