Pride comes before a fall...

Hi folks...heavens above I've just noticed it's Wednesday already...half way through another week and no-one was more surprised than me when I realised that 2 weeks today I'll be heading to the airport for my flight to Birmingham and 5 days of Fiskars Fun. The workshop kits have arrived safely and I have to admit to breathing a big sigh of relief on that score...I sure would not have been a happy bunny if I'd had to repeat that particular kitting marathon.
And I haven't been resting on my laurels since the weekend either...a sneaky last minute Fiskars magazine commission popped into my Inbox...that's done and dusted along with the dreaded step-by-steps and I've also been playing catch up with my homework from Creative Chemistry 102...still a way to go to complete the course but hey in this crazy place we call the cubbyhole I was feeling rather chuffed with myself that the techniques tags from Day 2 of Layering Stencil fun were under my belt...
and I'd be moving on to Day 3...but pride comes before a fall...yep...knock knock who's there...a gatecrasher has joined the crafty party...a nasty cold/flu virus has turned up to spoil the fun and he's being a bit stubborn about leaving despite Mr Lemsip and Messrs Hot Drinks doing their best to show him the door. My friends will tell you that I DO NOT do "ILL"...I'm not the most patient of patients...don't mind the odd feeling grotty day but more than that and Mrs Seriously Grumpy is on the warpath.  So if I survive the next 24 hours which by the way I have every intention of doing...I'll be back tomorrow to share...fingers crossed...the tags from Day 2 in more detail...once they've all had a bit more titivation.
Hugs Kath xxx

Poor girl...we have had that too...ugggggh...let me tell you. DH is still a bit ill with it and needs another round of antibiotics! We got it on the return flight home from England (Sept 1) and his is still hanging around...

Take care Kath as I know you do not have time to be ill that long.....so baby yourself a little bit...you deserve it!

Your course tags are gorgeous...so inky and wonderful.

Hi Kath, you really have had a bad do with this wretched virus, DH has been suffering - not nice and not welcome! Hope it goes very soon. Love your tags, I think I did the whole thing too quickly and may now re-visit Day 2 as it is one of my favourites. Take care. Hugs, Anne x

Hi Kath, be careful don't do too much too soon, or you may end up in bed and that would really pee you off. Love all the tags, my favourite tree stamps there and I love the bright red on the gentleman one.I wouldn't like to choose as I like them all. Take care...Trish

Your tags look amazing. Wonderful colours and layering. I have not really started yet !! Had a little play on Saturday but can't wait to sit down and enjoy the course with Tim.

Take care and keep warm
