Drawing tonight, swine flu, & Collage Dreams on Paper

Don't forget! The Halloween drawing will take place and be posted here tonight! Comment the post below to enter to win one of the published original Good Little Witches collages! I'll post the winners tonight!

Our daughter probably has swine flu! Eeek! Actually, my son and husband probably had it last week but their cases were very mild. We had to take our daughter to the doctor early Friday morning after she had 2 asthma attacks and a very high fever. She has never had an asthma attack except in the midst of a soccer game and it has been a long time since that has happened. To have two pretty bad attacks in one day, just laying in bed, scared the pants off of us. So we were told to go to ER with her. She tested positive for influenza A which more than likely means she will test positive for swine flu - we will know in the next couple of days. But, she is home, really, really sick but home and soaking up the TLC.

As I keep an eye on her, I am getting caught up with my homework. I've been taking Nancy Baumiller's (aka Crowabout) Collage Dreams on Paper online class. I have already learned so much! We haven't gotten to the main image or adding lettering (which scares me to no end, I'll tell ya) and details, but here is what I've done with the first three lessons. This class is great, and I mean GREAT! So glad I took it!

I hope your daughter kicks the butt of the swine flu and gives it a big swift kick in the behind. And sends it packing very soon.

Sending warm fuzzies and virtual chicken soup.

Hi Marsha! I'm hoping that your daughter has a speeding recovery! Love popping in and seeing your beautiful art. Take care.

OMG Marsha! I found your blog because you're in my art journaling class...you are SO talented...honestly I asked myself why you would be taking an art journaling class...you should be teaching! Thanks so much for sharing your art with us! Hugs!

Marsha, I'm sending positive thoughts your daughter's way.Keep her close and any changes get back to the ER quickly. Poor thing. My daughter gets asthma with any respiratory virus and I know the swine flu packs a punch with those who have underlying lung issues. We will get the vaccine as soon as it is available.Thinking of you...
Love the collage so far!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey Marsha!
I hope your daughter is feeling better! I work with little walking petri dishes everyday (3rd through 8th graders), I'm thinking it's only a matter of time before I get it!
Smiles-

Hope your daughter is well very soon. I have a cold/flu but don't think it's very serious. DH is coming down with it now and I hope he has it easy as I have so far. I can only imagine how scary an asthma attack is! Sending lots of warm wishes and get well vibes your way. Have fun with your class; I'm waiting for you to teach one too!

Wishing healing to your daughter. Not fun having an ill child. Love the witches. Might win, who knows.

What a year you've had! I hope your girl is feeling better soon. I had it earlier in the year and it felt like it took forever to get me back to 100% Of course her age (and loving care from her Mom) should help her rebound fast!

NancyB said...

Oh my gosh! So much love and hugs to you all...Send her my good wishes thoughts and prayers to get herself better! Hope all is feeling better as I type this to you! Your doing an awesome job in the class...I love the background and border you have done! Makes doing this class all the worth while! Excellent work and a massive amount of shiny sticker stars for you! xoxo
