Well, I made it through tax day without turning to drugs or alcohol! 

I woke this morning and my cold is gone...gone...gone. It lasted from the day I got home from the beach last Tuesday until evidentially some time last night. I did wake with a headache but I'll take that over the nasty cold I had. The only thing with headaches and me is that I thankfully get them so infrequently and when I do my mind starts getting the best of me....is it an aneurysm? a tumor? is this the beginning of the end?? HAH! I think this is the part of my hospice volunteer work that is not good for me, it makes me think some crazy (and deathly) things sometimes!!

I've really been doing well in my book binding this week, I've listed 7 new ones. I just may be ready for my first art/craft show in June after all! Of course in keeping with my deathly visions today, I was looking over the books I have ready to go and wondered what in the world are my kids or husband would do with these things if I kicked the bucket?!? Please, before anyone gets depressed about my death talk, don't, I say it all tongue in cheek, not to mention I have no fear of death so it's all good. OK?  

I wanted to share a giveaway I entered, it's for a custom made rubber stamp at olive bites blog. I would really like one to use for my shop. Have a look! But I hope I win. No offense.

Let me take you back to 1978 in honor of my "I'll Take New York" book above that I just listed...break out your platform shoes and think back on that awful curly perm you were so proud of.......
No one knows who she is or what her name is..............at the Shores
