Fun Bugs

I love making these little bug stickers. I use a roll of gummed kraft packing tape, some sharpies and a little acrylic paint. I punch out shapes and decorate them with fun little bugs and flowers. I use some of the scrap pieces to make co-ordinating decorative pieces. I plan on doing more for my shop... maybe do some on moleskine books.

This is good work for me to do right now... I can just sit and draw, while I take it easy.

What a Week

So I've been out of commission for a week. Really out of commission. Last Tuesday, May 26th, I woke up not feeling too well. I had stomach and abdominal pains. As the morning progressed I began to feel severely chilled and light-headed. I put my son on the bus for school and called my husband to come home. I ended up in the ER, then was transferred and admitted to my original surgical hospital with a post-surgical abdominal infection.

The last week has been spent in the hospital -fighting the infection, having lots of blood drawn, pushing my I.V. stand around the halls and trying to eat the hospital food. The staff was wonderful, and really helped to make it bearable.

I finally came home yesterday. I am tired and hooked up to funky drainage stuff -ick!, but oh so glad to be home again!
