I have discovered that life is a roller coaster and I'm learning to enjoy the ride! I am a married mom of 4. I work part-time outside of the home and, of course, more that full time as a wife and mother! I do classes from my craft room in the basement...which is why we call it the "Craft Cave."

And now, for something different...

Any Monty Python fans? ...nevermind.

Julie created a really cute Get Well goodie last year, and I thought it was brilliant. ('Course, most of her ideas ARE brilliant.) Now, usually you just can not improve any of Jewel's ideas and they are totally worthy of a "direct case". For this one, I just tweeked her idea a wee bit.

I saw a couple other little gems while blurfing and had a "lightbulb moment" thought of just putting all of it together...
So...I added a bit to the "Get Well Goodie" with the throat lozenges and Emergen-C (or Airborne comes in individual packets now too!) and put it all in a cup holder designed by Lauren that was originally made as a Hot Cocoa set. And, what would be cuter than some tissues in a holder that says "Bless You," of course! Thanks to Dani for sharing the template.
Note: I had to adjust both of these templates a titch to fit the tissue packs & cups I was using, so check your measurments.

DANG!!! Now you all know my BIG secret! I just combine or tweek other fabulous ideas into something almost original.
Really though, big KUDOS to Julie, Lauren and Dani for sharing all that they share on their blogs (and myriads of others, too!). I'm really thankful that I don't have to take the time to make a tutorial or figure out how to share a PDF file for a template. And I certainly wouldn't want to do such a thing and then and pretend it was MINE!! Why re-invent the wheel? I'm ecstatically happy to "give credit where credit is due" and these fabulous truly creative ladies definitely deserve the nod! (Okay, I'm now stepping off my little soap box on blogging manners.)

Say! You know, now that I think about it...wouldn't this be really cute for a Thanksgiving (or Christmas) Hostess Gift with a quart of Apple Cider (or wine) on one side and mulling spices on the other? Yummy!!
Or, you could just give the bottle with a "hang tag pouch" with the same spices.
See...that's just how my mind works...running from one idea to the next...
Or maybe....nevermind! You can figure it out, hey?
