Designing under the weather......



Well, whether it be a bug or fatigue or just the *Mid-Winter Tummy Grumbles*......your gentle blog-mistress is under the weather today, and I do apologize for all the other blogs I have NOT read and left comments on.
Yesterday I wasn't feeling too good, just exhausted mostly, and then this morning, helloooooo Mr. Bug! So to kill some time I started piddling around with something specifically for Valentine's Day in the Zazzle shop---not that I think the world will SWARM to this---but it gave me something to DO.   ;-)  The opposite side has the "Java Love" on it, with the print in between, so this is a full wrap-around mug. And for a brief moment, it was actually featured on the front page of Zazzle under Valentine's Day items! (I am sure it is waaaaaaay back in the pages and pages of mugs by now! LOL! and boy, there is a lot of just stuff on there.....) Actually, if you're curious on how the whole design looks, click the text for the shop up above.....it was kind of fun laying it out as a whole. I wouldn't mind one of these myself, plus I left it so it could be put on any type of mug, travel mug or glass mug. The white travel mug looked pretty good!
Now I am off to rest and try and figure if I'm really *sick* or just completely worn to a nub. I am sort of voting on the second......
To all of my blog-friends, I will be around to visit as soon as I can! I miss hearing from everyone and seeing what y'all are up to!
Till later.......when I am better rested and pithy and perky.......(or snarky and sarcastic, as the case may be!).......

Pax.

Well, I was about to alert Tristan & form a search party to find you!! I figured between the 2 of us we could sleuth the mystery & locate you!!
Sorry to hear you are not feeling very well..... I have been playing around with a headache that I thought was sinus but in the last few days I find it is stress that turns into a walking migrane. ((That is what I call a tolerable migrane...))
I will be so damn ((oops...darn)) glad when this whole biopsy is done next week. Then I can have my life back!! I have been "jerked around" with this since the end of October & my good nature is about to run out!!#*$%$#
Sorry...rant...headache....
Love,
Marilyn
xxoo

Oh Marilyn!!!
Honey you can rant here all you want!!! I don't blame you; you have every right to be angry and yes, I get the stress migraines. Gave myself a low grade one before the Dr. visit but afterwards it was gone.
What I've found is I am still WEAK from all this crappola, and that makes me mad! I know I expect too much, but then, that's me. Yesterday I completely crashed, trying to sleep, a ding-bat girlfrien that calls everyday when she knows I'm resting.....DAMN!
Thene there have been server issues, with a competing company trying to BLOCK my broadband signal (and they were too stupid to do it so it couldn't be back traced...DUH) so there was a half a day dealing with techs, etc.....
I have had no time for anyhting other than WORK.
And it's caught up.
So it's a pajama day!!!
I highly recommend these! Very therapeutic.... ;)
Sorry I drifted without leaving a note.....

XXOO!!

Cute Valentine mug!!! Catchy phrase!! ♥
Being wore out is a drag. When I'm sick my mind wants to DO but the body says NO, NO, NO!!! It is difficult to do nothing. Not in our makeup!
I guess you have no choice but to take it easy till you are back to being yourself. Hang in there!
♥ audrey

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Audrey,

I'm just fed up with laying around, but after two days of *going*, laying around is looking better!
I don't learn unless I've been hit in the head with a rock.....LOL!!!
I have done NOTHING today! and that's okay.
Going to go torment the birds a bit, i.e. sing along with them. They enjoy it......oy.

XXOO!!
Anne

Mary Helen-Art Saves Lives said...

I LOVE this new Valentine mug...we use ours every day and please you have been healing and that is work Lady! Stay warm and find some boogey music and dance in your chair if you need to...I am sending you a HUG and a KISS! Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Mary Helen,

Sitting here chilling to good be-bop era Jazz.....can it get much better??? (well, yes I suppose, I could be in New Orleans listening to it...LOL!!!)
Just resting.....it's so ODD. <:)

XXOO!!

{{{{{HUGS TO YOU THIS DAY}}}}}

I'm so sorry to hear your feeling under the weather. I know how hard it can be. After 21 surgeries and looking down the road at least to one or two more, I know how depressing it can be to want to heal quick and knowing it takes time. Rant rave kick or scream if you must. Then inhale nice and deep ... and take a nap!! *wink*

I love love love your mugs. I thinks me gonna sneak over and get the hubby one tomorrow!! :-0)
Tammy

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Tammy...holy cow....21 surgeries. I cringe to think.
rest has been great today---abput three or four more days and I should be abck to my *normal* state...whatever that is! LOL!!!
Just kicking back and kniting, and a little snoozing...the good things in life!

XXOO!!
Anne

Ces said...

DITHERED?!!!I will only use that term for a data field, not for someone beautiful and magnificent as you! Oh poor baby! I hope you feel better soon. Are you having chicken noodle soup? Ugh and it's winter up there with all the frigid temperatures. Do take care please. We want beautiful people in this world!

Leslie said...

Take care of you! Love the "Bean".

Sleep, sleep, Sleep
Soup,soup,soup
Nap, nap, nap
Feel better soon

I think you should remove the word 'overdo' from your personal dictionary. Once it's not there, then you won't be tempted and you won't get in this state. Lay low and rest up and get your 3-V's back (vim, vigour and vitality).

yoborobo said...

Feel better, Anne! I am behind on all things. Tomorrow I will catch up and be all sorts of fun to be around - HA! Love the mug - xox Pam

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hi Ces,

Feeling a bit better today; I think another day of NOTHING will help! LOL!
And we have more snow coming in, and we need groceries, and I am NOT going out! DH is going to have to figure this one out! LOL!!!
Back to the couch and rest today....

XXOO!!
Anne

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Leslie,

Yes, behaving.....that *bean* was all that THIS bean could manage.
I just want my creative time back.
WAH!!! ;)

XXOO!!
Anne

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Ooooooo KAte,

That sounds perfect.
I think my day is planned! :)

XXOO!!
Anne

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey MA,

I'm pretty sure *over-do* is the only word in my personal dictionary! LOL!!!! That is my LIFE!
The only difference is now I have enough sense (sometimes) to stop and rest..... ;)
Doing that again today, and going to try and keep the computer off...hahaha!

XXOO!!
Anne

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Pam!

HA! You sound like me! I was looking at the kitchen as I got up and that almost sent me back to bed. Then there is the tiny christmas tree that's still up, but it's red and I think I will just stick hearts on it and avoid the work for a while longer! LOL! Yes! I admit that!
I just want to make art---the house is on it's own.
So I have to get well...NOW!!!
But for today, I'm thinking it is back to the couch..... :)

XXOO!!
Anne

I was visiting over at Marilyn's and noted you were not feeling good. I know I will feel a lot better when this particular winter is over. I know I am old, winter used to never bother me. I am trying to redo a painting I did for my GD and I got the wrong green on it, so into that today. I like that mug too. Did you see all the stuff Mr. Tea sent me? Tea, tea, tea, come over for tea with me.

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hi QMM!

I've just done too much. I have no sense in pacing myself and my body finally has gone on strike!
Ah, tea. I love tea. Cold in the day, hot at night. I'm thinking later, with the knitting.... :)
I'll be okay---I think I got worked up about the Dr. visit (a very long day due to the drive) and the freezing cold. Normally it doesn't bother me--I love it--but I've not been out all winter!
So I had a little studio time today! That was good!
Will post more hearts in a couple of days.....

XXOO!!
Anne

Deborah said...

Poor poor Anne...surgery AND a bug. Boo Hoo. I adore this cup! You are so clever. Bean. teehee.

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

But I am TOUGH Deb!!! I will torment the big till it leaves!!! Muh-HAHHHAHA!!!!! (in best Pirate voice, with a little squeak....)

XXOO!!
Anne
