Alive, I think

Still recovering from my cold. I haven't had anything terribly exciting to blog about and I suspected you could do without my reporting every sneeze and nose wipe. I am fairly certain we had a flu, don't sure if it was "the flu." (H1N1) But it was brutal. We did not go to the doctor though, neither J nor I developed any complications that I felt like I had to pull the parachute. We are finally recovered. J is about 95% recovered. I am about 90%, I'm a day behind him.
Still scrapping, though not as much since I've been sick. I've been doing more CMEs. It's easier for me to read in bed (and fall asleep). I did try to scrap on Friday night last week, but I was sitting leaned up against the closet door and I fell asleep. Scared myself silly when I woke up. So, I didn't try again until last night. I was in a Fall mood after walking the dog in crisp cool night air:
My Little Vampire
Supplies: American Crafts Glass Slippers Thickers Mulberry; American Crafts Hocus Pocus Thickers Accents Black; plus Pink paislee Twilight Eclipse patterned paper and punch out.
I love these thickers. Can you tell they are smooth? The glitter is encased. Love that, love the font especially. Definitely a new favorite of mine, and I'm not that much of a bling girl.
Things are still rolling along on the house. We probably will not move until Dec. or so. I was offered a really awesome guest design team position in the next month or so, keep an eye on this blog for a giveaway connected with that. It's something I've always wanted to win myself when I've seen it given away on other blogs. I wanted to give my regular readers a heads up before it happens. Happy, Monday! Until tomorrow.
PS If I didn't make it, I think this is heaven. They let me scrap here! :)
