...that's how it's spelled, right?....I think my entire body is filled with the goopy stuff.  I've been very fuzzy for 3 days now, and now have some good pharmacuticals to make me better.  I did spend the day in bed and my dear sweet hubby brought me Chicken Noodle Soup from Bob Evans...the best for curing what ails you...  I'm just waiting for them both to kick in.

Here is a little something I submitted to Paper Crafts Magazine for their last call.  This was for their Girlfriend Gifts and creative use of a die categories.  These are the Hot Air Balloon dies from PTI.  I thought it was pretty ingenius!

3. Slide a black pearl on 2’ head pin, then slide on the 3D shape, follow with pearl. Using pliers, create a loop at the top. Attach to earring form.
