Things are looking brighter...

I am finally starting to feel a little better after coming down with the stomach flu. I slept so much yesterday it was crazy. At one point I had a dream that I ran into this lovely gal at a huge thrift store and we talked for hours about crafting and crocheting. Ha! The blog world even is a part of my dreams!
I woke up this morning and was finally able to eat some cinnamon toast...my favorite. I sat down to do my daily blog reading and I was so excited when I saw that these were heading my way from the very talented Janel.



They are going to look so cute displayed in our beautiful new bedroom! She is running a special this weekend only. She will do a custom drawing for only $10!!! That is a steal people!! And this includes shipping! She is wanting to buy an afghan and all she will need is 15 people to get a custom drawing and the afghan is hers!! I am sure she will have no problem because her artwork is amazing! So help her out!!

Today I think I will try to stay out of bed and finally read some of my book



and work on my granny squares for the Great Granny Square Swap. Speaking of the swap...Stephanie made the cutest little illustration for it!



I have had such a great time hosting this swap. I love meeting so many talented ladies. It still amazes me everyday all the friends I have meet from this little blog. I can't thank you enough for stopping by my little corner of the world. Your comments mean the world to me and I read each and every one of them.
XOXO

I know what you mean about being amazed by how many friends you have made from your blog. I never knew the internet would be such a facilitator for bringing me and people who share the same love and passion for creativity together! Thanks for sharing my illustration. So happy people are enjoying it.

PS. I agree with Kjirsten, you should make the granny square pic a widget so we can put it on our blogs!
