Much better today!

I feel much better today. My nose quit running which is such a relief. The cough kept me awake all night and I still feel crumby but oh so much better than the last few days. I was just about to believe I had the swine flu. Hee hee.

Isn't this the cutest little guy ever? I found him yesterday in the Library of Congress so you are free to copy and use him. I love him! I have all kinds of ideas for him . . . we'll see what he says about them later.

I am going to get some chores done, take it easy, and above all play today. I am just going to play. I might even make some ATC's which I don't do often enough. They seem less formal to me somehow, kind of take the pressure off of making some best piece ever thing I get goin' in my head feeling too self important and serious about all of this. It's time to play. I'm going to be closing up my Etsy this weekend until I get back from my Dad's and things are a bit slow now anyway, so it's a good time not to worry about selling what I make and just make it cuz I want to.

Have a great day! I have a lot to do over the next few days but I always look forward to blog visiting you all more than anything else - I'll get by sometime today or tomorrow!

oh p.s. Scout, my dog that hurt his leg, got about a dozen or more stitches yesterday and spent the day at the Vet's. His gash was about 3 inches long and very deep. He was pretty loopy when he got home and very quiet today, but he's fine and loving the extra attention. I tell him in my "I love you doggy" voice that he's a pain in the neck and now wasn't the best time to cost me $200 but he can make up for it by not chasing the UPS truck anymore.

So happy to hear that the sniffles are on their way out! Love this little guy's face, Marsha! He's just chock full of ideas for many wonderful Tumblefish creations! Thanks for sharing this image too.

Poor Pooch . . . Poor Mom! Am happy to hear that it's nothing more serious.

Enjoy your playtime! You totally deserve it! Hugs, Terri xxoxo

Glad to hear that both you and Scout are on the mend! Ouch.
I can spend far too much time pouring over the Library of Congress pictures. So fascinating, especially when you look at some of them "large"
Cheers, Shelagh

Don't you love "Doggy Voice"? I might try it with my kids. "You'll just do your homework, yes you will!" (scratch under the chin) "You're just the best little teen ever!!!!" (give them dog biscuit).

Ok - it might not work.
Glad you are feeling better. And playing with art is when the good stuff happens. Play more!!!!! :)
