Still recovering

I had no idea pneumonia could make a person so weak. One day I feel better and the next I feel as if I want to nap all day. I'm still working half time, which is nice. I'm hoping to work 6 hours a day next week.

Anyway, I have found some time to be crafty. I took a long nap this afternoon and evening, so I am still wide awake. Once everyone else went to bed, I played with my new chipboard coasters. The first project I made was an accordion photo album:
Delightful mini-album

mini-album inside

mini-album inserts

mini-album back

And I made a couple of folder cards to match:
delight folder
wrapped folder

I hope to make some more mini-albums with the chipboard coasters. I'm working on one now that I might post tomorrow.

I hope everyone is hanging in there!

Hi Rachel, I hope you are feeling better today. Your mini album came out really nice. You did a great job considering you were not feeling that great. The secret to getting better is to get lots of rest.

Take care,
Wendy

My dies made her blog die :-)

Why don't you just let me know which one you want and we can see about everything else later, so I can take it off the list.

Thanks for visiting my blog - I've incorporated my Swap Blog into my Scrapping Away Blog - I had far too many blogs on the go lol and besides Scrapping Away gets more traffic so hopefully more people will see the swaps ;)

Dude! Feel better soon! I'm battling pneumonia brought on my a bout of the flu after getting the stupid flu shot. It sucks ass. Can I say ass on your blog? Does Sophie read it? Sophie don't say ass.
