More Catching Up and a Dick Blick Giveaway

Feeling a little yucky the past few days, not sure if it's a bug or a cold...just stuffy and fuzzy, a little stomach and headachey...I'm still trying to manage this heel spur that's kept me from running all winter, but after wearing my tennis shoes all day the last two days rather than going barefoot, that's seemed to help. I can walk on it better in the morning instead of hobbling painfully, gimping down the stairs. Maybe there's hope for me at last...fingers crossed! The weather is starting to warm up and I'm dying to get out and run again!! Not to mention I really need to get back in shape before beach weather and bathing suit season hits...Aaahh, beach!!!

After a quick bit of cleaning in the morning and a couple Aleve to stem off a threatening headache, I sat myself down to play for a while. I did another postcard for Mail Month and a couple pages in my Tangle a Day calendar:

Funky Town and a sample of Scales (originally created by Lyn Philips, I believe...)
I've been wanting to play with these three patterns for a while now--left to right: Puf by Carole Ohl, Cloves found on Pinterest, and Socc by Erin Olson
Still have quite a bit of catching up to do in the calendar, but it was really fun to tangle away the afternoon again, Order of the Phoenix keeping me company in the background...I do love Harry!
Today, more of the same after a trip to the grocery store. Ash is stopping by after work so we're having an early St Paddy's Day dinner, corned beef and cabbage--yum! That's about all the Irish I have in me...And I'm realizing I really need to get on the ball for Easter or a certain Mr. Bug will be without a basket this year--where is the time going?? 2013 needs to put on the brakes at least a's all flashing by entirely too fast!
Oh! Before I forget--Dick Blick is giving away five $50 gift cards!! Click here to enter to win! Yay!
Because the Father never closes out His passion for reaching people, I pray that today you will pray for those in your world who have yet to meet Him. As you offer up the names of family members, friends, co-workers, may God see your heart for sharing the message with them. He will hear your earnest plea.
“God is fair; He will not forget the work you did
and the love you showed for Him by helping His people.”
Hebrews 6:10


  1. I agree that 2013 needs some brakes........
