I'm back with a Cutting Cafe goodie and the flu!

We are back from our wonderful visit with our family but unfortunately, picked up the flu somewhere along the way. I've had a flu shot (reg.) but evidently this is another strain. UGH! Fever, body aches, chills, swollen glands, the works...my poor DH has it as well, but his seems to be milder...good thing as the poor guy had to go to work. The weather in KY is very unreliable...it was 78 degrees one day and in the 30's the next night. Our Florida blood has made us big sissies.

As soon as he gets the photos of our grandchildren edited, I'll post some...we got to go trick or treating with them! What fun.

Regina came out with this awesome Holiday Planner set just in time for the holidays...and it's just $2.99 for this HUGE set. I don't know how she does it! I braved my craft room and made this sweet little planner using a template I found free on Capture the Moment. I made a belly band to keep it closed. Regina even included a digi stamp for Receipts and this little notepad cover has a pocket that's just perfect for slipping those holiday receipts in so they don't get lost. Perfect for tracking what you've bought for each person on your list!

My posts may be a bit erratic this week depending on how I feel...thanks for understanding.

Supplies: The Cutting Cafe Holiday Planner set
Paper: PTI Kraft, Poppy Red,, Martha Stewart Christmas, SU white

Pin It!

Charlene, my friend, sorry to hear that you and your hubby are both sick. I'll pray for a speedy recovery. I sure missed you. Somehow I did not know that you were gone... just thought you were busy with other things. Anyhow, I am glad you are back, YEAH!!! Love this planner... super cute idea. I guess I need to get in gear and get some of these made for small gifts ;D. Hope you are feeling better real soon, my friend!! Hugs and blessings, Sabrina

How can you make such cute stuff when you feel so punky? You are impressive!
I hope you and hubby don't have the H1N1 flu, Charlene. CDC advises that you stay away from others for 24 hours after your fever has gone away to prevent spreading this virus.
