The new phone book's here! The new phone book's here!

Okay, not really! I just really really want to use that line from The Jerk!
On the other hand, my Sampler did arrive

Standouts are: my anywhere clip, the card, the ziney goodness, and the cool magnet which has currently taken residence on the fridge. The nurse doll is a bit ironic though. I have the urge to stick needles in her. Probably that's because the last nurse I saw, that's all she wanted to do to me! :| At any rate, she's keeping me company on my bedside table.

I've been distroed!

Okay, I didn't want to say anything until the zines were available for purchase, but distro e is now carrying my zine! I did a reprint just for them so if you want a copy, head on over there. Oh! Even if you already have my zine, check it out because there are lots of other cool zines available, including All Strings Attached. You'll wish you'd done it sooner! :D

Here are some ATCs I've created. I can't really say what I was thinking when I made some of them, but, oh well.

I see you, butterfly...

Not sure where I was going with these...

So, I'm up for trading ATCs again. For other trades, wishlist is coming, possible later today. :)

I only wish to catch a fish so juicy sweet!

Okay, the title is from Gollum, not me. I just started reading The Hobbit to be followed by Lord of the Rings since I bought a boxed set. I've seen the movies umpteen times and since the rule of thumb is that book is generally a lot better than the movie I finally decided to pick it up. The Hobbit reads pretty well, and although I love to read, I just can't seem to really get into it for more than a chapter. Loss of concentration or something. I don't think it's the book's fault in this case.

Anyway, since my swap from Wet Canvas has been received I can finally post a piccy

My swap partner really liked it so I'm a happy camper.

Spicey Creations is back open with lots of new pretties. Here's one of my faves:

Oh, by the way, my oher half did tackle honey mustard chicken and it was magically delicious! ;)

Here's a bracelet I made with some beads I got from my swap with Pimientanegra

I'm a bit tired today. Perhaps I should take a nap? I doubt it. For some reason I feel I should be working on my samples for April's Sampler. I think I must have fallen on my head at some point. ;) By the way, this week Marie is raffling off some February back-up Samplers so scoot on over there and buy a ticket! :)

Today, I received my Craftster Earrings Rock Swap

Pretty cool! :D

Now you're cooking with gas!

Well, my other half is anyway! He's been in charge of preparing meals lately and yesterday, in the interest of varying things a bit, I decided to teach him to make a spinach quiche. Annoyance was limited and the quiche came out yummy so a win-win situation basically. He'd like to try honey mustard chicken next. It's really easy so I think we'll give it a go. If I get really ambitious, maybe I'll try teaching him to make brownies, but maybe not.

I've got lots of lovelies coming for Spicey Creations re-opening. I think it will make it worth the wait! :)
I do have some things to swap and will get them listed along with my "wants list" after site is back up and running with new goodies.

Here's a couple of ATCs I made:

Home Sweet Home

Well, I finally got home yesterday. A bit longer than we'd originally thought, but I'm doing okay. I can't do a whole lot at the moment like well, go anywhere, but I can do most any sedentary stuff.
It actually snowed the day I left and I could see it from my hospital room window. It snowed a bunch. It was white everywhere! It made me so happy to see! I just wish I'd had my camera. Today is strange as it has gone from hard rain to blinding sunshine 5-6 times this morning.

I received a few of RAK ATCs. They are really gorgeous! I hope to make some more tomorrow to send out so perhaps my muse will visit me later today? Well, one can hope. I will post pics of whatever I make.
Spicey Creations will be open again soon with new goodies.
I will also try to finish a "wish list" to post for trades.
Lastly, I want to say thanks for all the kind words and well wishes.
