Whew! and randomness.

1. The power is on. (A co-worker hit a cable, apparently, when he was setting up his fish pond.) But now our water is out...and water everywhere on campus is pretty low - sure need a good rain.

2. The phone is back in service, and the internet is on. All good there.

3. I'm feeling a bit better...but the virus has settled its little snarky self in my right sinus, and is putting lots of pressure on my cheekbone, teeth, and ear...which hurts...and though the decongestant I took helped a little, it made me feel all happytinglyweirdfuzzy, which is not a good thing at the moment! Never had a virus before that made my teeth hurt...

4. I got the Flourishes stamp sets 2 days ago that I won at the beginning of July - sooooooo happy about that! I made one card with the Strawberries set yesterday:The image is colored with Prismacolor pencils and Neopiko markers, with some touches of gel pen here and there.

5. On another happy stamping note, Mitra has posted all the new Fall and Winter releases on the Impression Obsession site - you can click here <---------- to see all the new rubber and supplies (Mega Mount block and shaker card pouches!!(preorder)) in one place, and click here <------------ to see the new clear sets.

6. JAYMACK - I'm still waiting to hear from you! I drew your name for the candy jar stamp set from I.O. (Or if you are one of her pretend stamping friends, can you email her for me?)

7. I was thinking........I still have I.O. stamps and some smARTworks and Our Daily Bread sets that I'd love to give away, but all the international postage is sure adding up..... So I was thinking about putting them up for auction one set at a time, starting at $0.00+postage. Anyone into that? If more than one person wants to bid on them, that's fine with me too, and my credit card bill will thank you! LMK.

That's all I knows!

  1. I hope you are better now? Still pray for all of you! God bless you! Nika

  2. I'm glad to hear you're mostly better, but sorry about the remaining tooth/sinus issue. :( Whenever I have sinus issues (which is most of the time) I regularly have tooth pain. Weird, huh? I don't blame you for not wanting to give so many stamps away with shipping costs as high as they are...I don't think anyone receiving a free stamp would mind paying the shipping (I know I wouldn't).

  3. GAW-GEOUS girlie! You are one talented color-er! :-)

  4. I say 'let the bidding start' :)


  5. Dina,
    Hope everyone is feeling better and better.

    I'm keeping you all in my prayers!

    Take care and STAY POSITIVE!

  6. I have prayed for you and yours. It would be okay with me to start the bidding! I pray you will feel better soon. We have a similar bug here in the Carolinas. Seems very contagious.

  7. Dina, very nice...your coloring is superb. Love the plaid paper and how you have captured the colors from that paper on the background of the Strawberry image.
