Horror post but with a little sugar at the end

Good afternoon crafters.

Well, I am knee deep in washing and ironing this week-end with my son back from his holiday and wet weather last week. Luckily the sun is shining so I am making good ground but hate the ironing, although I love to see all the clothes clean and ironed in the cupboards :).

My first Warning.... do not leave 6 year old girls unattended near your stash. I lost a sheet of A4 kraft stock and half a roll of pink washi tape when Phoebe felt she needed to be a little crafty this morning (pic to follow in another post). I have asked her not to use anything before asking me and normally I don't say no. I did hesitate a little when she wanted to use my markers but said yes as long as she sat next to me lol.

My second warning ..... look away now if you are scream'ish. This is a photo of my upper arm with the insect bites my doctor says have become infected. I have a few more bites on my arm, neck and shoulder. Not only are they very painful but they look horrible. I am hoping the penicillin will kick in soon.

So, this is my little sweetener, isn't she adorable?! Found this on etsy yesterday and love it. Her glasses are soo cute.....

Materials used: Groovy Love Girl from The Doodle Garden - Papermania card-stock - kraft - Echo Park papers - buttons - twine - sentiment from TGF

Thank you for dropping by and have a great day. Hugs, Mette

Wow, Those bites look more like they caused an allergic reaction than infection. Some one in my family gets really bad welts when she gets bit by mosquitoes. I hope they are getting better. We have also had a lot of hot weather and my son got heat rashes that looked like he was having a reaction to bug bites but when I cooled them down with a cold press they went away.
Your card looks really cute. I agree those glasses are very cute.
