Well. Today is certainly turning out a lot different than it started. I woke up this morning with my back screaming. Anybody with degenerative disc disease will know exactly what I'm talking about. It's like sciatica on steroids, with pain shooting all the way down to my toes. Usually it's my left side, but the past week, it's been my right, and this morning it all went nuclear. So, instead of the IB flea market, I've been holed up with pain pills and a heating pad.
I finally came online late this afternoon after talking one of the kids into bringing me the laptop, and all of a sudden the clouds disappeared, the sun came out, and the birds started singing. Why, you may ask? Not only did I win one of my favourite challenges, (EtsyInspired - woohoo!!), but, holy Toledo Batman! I won the big 500 followers blog candy at Feline Playful!!
Thank you so very, very much to Karen at Feline Playful and to all the girls at EtsyInspired.
BTW, if you haven't checked out Feline Playful and you like challenges, go there now! Karen keeps a fantastic list of all the latest challenges, by day - and she even gives you a little bit about what the challenge is. I've been using her lists to hunt for sketch challenges and to remind myself about which challenges I want to play along with.
Also, I think everyone should be EtsyInspired every week.
