Pink-eye

An Easter egg painted at the store. I punched circles out of sticker paper (just mailing labels) and stuck them to the egg. Then I painted it 3 times. When it dried I took tweezers and peeled off the dots.
This egg box was also painted at our store by Emily (and me). I lightly drew flowers, a sun, clouds, etc. and had her paint them in. I then did the other two coats and then I painted the inside lid.

Can you see the butterfly A & E?

This hideous fabric is a very stretchy polyester. I got this when I worked at Yardage City of San Diego so I've had it many many years. I think it was given to me. I'm pretty sure I didn't pay for it. I took it because I envisioned a shirt out of it. A short sleeve button up with a collar for Jon. I thought it woud be funny. I remember telling Corinnea many months ago that I had a fabric for her (this is it Corinnea!) to make something for Colin. Well I found it in the basement when cleaning. Shall I bring it in?



I have pink-eye. That's right, I'm 37 and have pink-eye. WTF? (Corinnea: what was your super nice definition of WTF? That's the one I mean). So I stayed home from work, sent the girls to Mary H's and I cleaned! I cleaned the basement storage 1st then came up and cleaned all over the house. This is what I discovered when I moved the couch. Nice! That's where my embroidery hoops are! That's cheese wrappers and other yucky stuff you see there too.

Wasn't That Funny??? You really shouldn't clean with pink eye. That could really irritate it!!! There's all that dust and random embroidery hoops that could get in your eye!!!

K, that fabric is CRAZY hideous. Bring it in, I must see it up close!!!!!!! We will get Collin's opinion!

And of course I love your eggs!

I know i'm over thinking this but my eyes have been itchy all day. So if anything happens i blame you because we worked together tuesday. Now that thats out of my system i love your easter eggs and lost cheese wrappers!!!

Corinnea: ohhhh, that's right! I really couldn't remember. I'll only bring the fabric in if Colin agrees to wear a big fat gold chain with it.

Katelyn!!! I guess we shouldn't have swapped eye fluids on Tuesday:)gaaa-rooosss! I would blame the cheese wrappers on Emily but sadly, I think they are Jon's.

Oh! And JOn wanted me to edit the post by photoshopping the crumbs and such on the floor where the couch had been. He said people will think we're pigs. What? My friends would never judge my crumbs or spelling for that matter!! ( I didn't photo shop the photo but I did fix two spelling errors I found). he he he :)

HOLY hideous fabric! That is so funny!! Glad you were able to get some cleaning done, as I just hang out and do nothing when I'm sick... What am I talking about, I do that now, that is why I'm on the computer, not cleaning :)

Ok, I have to say...as awful as that fabric is, it's totally making me homesick. I grew up only 20 minutes from the Kennedy Space Center! Seriously, we could watch launches from my back yard. And if we went out to the river, we could even see it on the launch pad. I miss Florida!

And BOO about the pink eye! I'm so sorry, Jen, that totally sucks! I was going to bring Elora in on Thursday, but decided against it, and I'm kind of glad that I did. How long does it take for pink eye to run its course? I'm thinking I'll try again next Thursday, if no new cases have cropped up...
