Tuesday's Thoughts (or Monday's Musings a day late!)

This is was supposed to be last night's post but I got distracted by more pressing matters and it didn't happen! Stuff to share - I am pretty sure (positive actually!) that I have worked out that my recent allergies are due to Nurofen - everything fits symptom wise (hives and swelling of the tongue, lips and face) and I think in my case my intolerance has developed over the couple of years that I have been using Nurofen for my neck pain/headaches. But no more - I have to detox first but I will be avoiding NSAIDs from now on! Feels so good to have worked it out - I was starting to worry about when I would next feel unwell and have sausage lips!

Other stuff to share - these two pictures are of my pages in Jacky's Altered Book. I have had quite a break from Altered Books until this year and I must admit I want to do more! Might have to just work on some of my own that I started a few years back but never finished!! The first one has a Twinkling H2O background, white embossed stamped images by Stampin'Up and some doodling. The second one has a background made from spraying various products over a Tattered Angels Mask on a brown paper bag with some Tattered Angels swirly stamp images (my newest and current favourite stamps!!)

This is my ATC for a trade with Deborah K in South Australia (no blog, as yet). It also has a Twinkling H2O painted background with the same Tattered Angels stamp as well as my favourite Hero Arts text image - yet again!).

And this is Deborah's sweet ATC for me!

Your altered book pages are beautiful! I've got several 'unfinished' books too - I think I'll put it on my list of new year's resolutions to work in them more! The ATCs are fabulous too!

Those book pages are amazing! As for the allergies, glad you identified the source. I developed an allergy to several antibiotic types and had the same symptoms - NOT fun!!
