I'm Still Here, Alive, (not pregnant) and Feeling a Little Better!

Thank you to everyone who posted such nice comments while I haven't been feeling good!! It feels so nice to know that I am missed.
I went to the Dr.'s on Monday and they put me on antibiotics for a sinus infection. I went again yesterday, because I didn't feel much better at all. This time they did blood work to check for Lyme Disease, my thyroid, and some other stuff. Then she decided to check to see if I was pregnant (Very Mary's idea). I've had 2 tubals, but I did get pregnant with Jace after the first one. Anyway, Earl about died at just the mention of a pregnancy test, but much to our relief it was negative! I started feeling better last night, not completely better, but I can function now.

I have a ton of stuff to post so I do some today and some tomorrow.
First I got an Alice in Wonderland Shadow Box from my swap partner, Teresa. She sent it so early I was totally surprised!! This was the first shadow box she ever made and only her second time using polymer clay. Thanks Teresa, I really like what the shadow box you created and think you, you did a great job!! (my picture is terrible, I couldn't seem to get a nice shot)
I received some of the prettiest things from my swap partner, Leslie, from The Brown Paper Bag Swap.

This is a journal she made. On the inside cover is this little brown paper bag with the feather in it. It is so pretty!

Then Leslie made this cute hanging out of a decorated brown paper bag.

Then vintage sewing items were inside a brown paper bag.

and sew were these wonderful vintage earrings, beads, buttons, tag, doily, tickets, cards.

Thank you, Thank you Leslie!! You did a wonderful job and you are so creative!!
