Fear of Spiders....

Coffee of the Day - Maple Pecan

I wanted to share with all of you that I am stepping down from almost all of my DT commitments since I am not getting any better right now. haven't been able to keep food down for going on 2 weeks & my fever just won't come down. blech! it just isn't fair to the stores and challenges that I was with to have someone who can't give them the full attention that they deserve. When I am healthy, it is no problem, but man, when the illnesses hit, my body lets me know that crafting falls to the bottom of the priority list. on a positive note, my term was almost complete with several of the teams, so I did give it my best shot of making it through. I really do hate leaving. it's hard for me to write that email to someone telling them I am stepping down.

I was finally able to do a bit of crafting yesterday. it felt good, but it took me not just all day, but into the late night to finish one card. I loved this cute senti that Paulette from Create with TLC released as a freebie last week about spiders. while Mick and I happen to love spiders in all shapes & sizes, Ryan and David are scared to death of them. I mean, seriously freaked by them. (kinda like me and monkeys!) so it just seemed perfect to use this senti on a Halloween card for David. I combined 3 wonderful images from Tammy over at A Day for Daisies with Echo Park Apothecary Emporium papers, authentic vintage seam tape (from an antique store even!!), rhinestones, gorgeous trim, and Prima rose. the seam tape, senti tag, and rose were sprayed with glimmer mist.
