A Flu, School and bein' Cool! :)

Hiya friends!  I've missed visiting you!  And I'm sorry I haven't been blogging either -- our lil 6 year old caught one hum-dinger of a flu and it got really rough on Monday - we were able to get his erradic breathing under control and the lovely projectile you-know-what finally subsided, but we'd be up for 12 hours with him before that.  Between lack of sleep, mountains of laundry and slinging batches and bowls of "mommy's homemade chicken soup", I haven't been able to even think crafting.   Thankfully his 72 hour bug is finally gone and he's back to eating solid foods and trying to run around - whew!  xxxx fingers xxxx ... now I'm doing this that it won't run rampid through the house!

Today also starts a new Pixie Dust Studio Challenge - School is Cool!  For this challenge, I decided to make a recipe card after finding this hilarious poem online ~ if you haven't read it, it's so funny and I want to know where I can sign up for this lunch!! :)  I made a little collage type recipe card and my favorite is lil Magnum Opus - our PDS resident bookworm!  I colored him with my prismacolor markers and added some elements in school colors.  I found the poem by K. Nesbitt at this site. 

Thanks for stopping by :)

Big Hugs,
Bigger Blessings!
