Some good news and some bad news...

The good news first...I made some creations with my first kit from Scrap That! Lots of Basic Grey Marrakech goodies in this kit, papers, glazed brads, chipboard stickers. What wonderful colors on the papers, rich and bold. And fun to work with!!

I love this photo of my son reading, he is SUCH a bookworm!!





My brother-in-law just started homebrewing and I was lucky enough to get a taste of his first batch. It was very good!!





And one card so far with the kit. I had to try my hand at making those accordian flowers i'm seeing everywhere!!





I have a couple more projects up my sleeve, so stay tuned!! Now for the bad news. My shin splints/sore calves/hurting-muscle-in-my-leg has come back with a vengence. I'm training for a half marathon and haven't run in over a week!! I went and got new shoes today and i'm hoping to get back on the road by this weekend. But my race is in 2 weeks and I haven't put in the mileage. So, we'll see how this pans out. Hopefully things will heal with rest and new shoes should help. Send me some get well soon vibes, will ya?? :-)

Thanks for stopping by!!

You are one brave woman! A friend of mine just did a half iron-man. He's nuts! I stick to about 6 miles or so. My knees are too flimsy and can't take more than one run a week, so I feel your pain. Good luck with training!

Oh no! Sending lots and lots and lots of get well vibes to you! Get that foam roller out. I heard it works miracles. Does it feel like another stress fracture? My training has fallen off too... darn work! LOL! We'll limp through the 13.1 miles together... I love the layouts and the cute pinwheel flower! Gett well soon!
