This month’s theme is “Crafty Evening”, and the muted palette evokes thoughts of working on some project, a mug of some hot beverage nearby. I don’t have a huge kit for you this month like I did in December, but I broke out the watercolors and actual brushes and painted some things you can use as masks or mattes. I’ve been spending what time I’ve been awake working on a couple of other projects–a set of 8.5×11-format planner pages (which can, of course, easily be scaled to 50% to if you prefer 5.5×8.5) and a megakit that will be being released in monthly installments. I hope to have the planner templates in the shop yet this weekend, and the starter kit for the mega-collection will probably be released within a week.
The quest for real restful sleep continues–apparently part of the reason CPAP couldn’t be approved is that the more recent sleep study didn’t count because Medicare raised the amount of REM needed for it to be accepted. And, of course, the change was effective for all requests made after the change date, regardless of whether the study report met the requirements on the date it was performed. So I got to go and do yet another one…and wake up in the sleep lab on my birthday. *sigh* On the plus side, the sleep lab techs sang Happy Birthday after they woke me up (with an awkward look between them before they started and some confusion on words, which left us all laughing afterwards), and had a red velvet cupcake for breakfast. At least I started the day with a smile! Still, I do hope that the next time I see them, it’ll be bumping into each other at Walmart or something rather than at the sleep lab–I’ve had to be in there often enough over the last 6 months that they remember me!
Don’t forget to head back to the PixelScrapper thread and get all the other portions–there are some gorgeous submissions this month! I should be back within a couple of days to release the planner templates.
