I am still alive…

Hello My Friends! Sorry for being so quite lately. Our Munchkin (Sergei) was not feeling very well, and of course I couldn’t be creative. Last week Sergei woke up with a pain in his stomach. Looks like it was one of his Pancreatitis episode. He wasn’t eating at all, just laying with a pillow on his belly. We were giving him lots of liquids; this helped him.Two days passed, he woke up with a very red eye. After visit to the doctor’s office our suggestions were proofed:”Pink Eye”. From one eye it went to another. Two days later, Sergei woke up in the middle of the night with a ear pain. He was crying, and nothing could help him. Went to the doctor again… Ear infection… that is what we need to add to the Pink Eye. But that is not all. Today he wasn’t sleeping again. He got some rough cough. Cough drops didn’t do anything, but I decided to give a try with an inhaler. After 30 minutes my baby was asleep. So all of this really worn Sergei, Ken and me out (plus I was working two Sundays in a row having only one day off during the week). Hopefully our sicky child will be back to normal.

Marci brings you Sunshine

Anyway, today I had some time in my craft room before work. I played with the brand new La-La Land Crafts digi-stamp. Did you hear that Irina (store owner and amazing crafter) just created her very own character. If not, please stop at her blog and look at this cuteness. Isn’t Marci is a real doll? She will be available in rubber in September, but if you can’t wait to play with her she is available in digi format in the store for a limited time only. Irina keeps surprising us and today she showed another sweetie Marci Ballerina! I am very happy that Irina’s dream came true, and she draws her own stamp design. I always believed in her and admired her talent.

I had a really good time coloring Marci, even though I am not as good at this yet. I stopped at Taylored Expressions blog and tried her sketch for this week. After I finished my card I asked my son what does he think about it? He told me that it turned out very cute. His opinion is so important to me, because he is the one who brings a sunshine to my life.

Thank you so much for stopping by and listening to my life rumblings. I wish you all a wonderful day,
