Be careful you don't catch it...

...you might need to put on one of those little paper mask thing-y's to protect you from this horrifically contagious disease as you read this post.

Because I've got it. And got it bad. It started out with a little tingling on my scalp and then my brain began racing and before you know it I had it!

The dreaded.... SPARKLER BRAIN! I woke up this morning all excited about something I invented in my sleep. You're gonna be impressed. You know how they have all those mini-vegetables now in the produce department? Well, I invented baby celery! And let me tell you, figuring out to make teeny, tiny celery bags made the whole product marketing and development thing difficult. But it was all worth it when Martha had me on her show to tell about the product. And I was one of the nice guests who took baby celery samples for all the guests. Yea, I'm cool like that.

Plus, sometime in the night I woke up thinking about shutting my computer screen down. And how when the screen goes from pretty blue to faded out gray it is really a metaphor for life. But when I tried to take a picture of the screen fading to gray this morning I smashed my glasses into my nose so you'll have to settle for this visual representation of this deep, serious metaphor.
And lastly, just to save this entire post from total unmitigated weirdness (what's that you say? Did you mumble it would take a miracle at this point? Well! humphhhh!!!)

Oh, and as I was saying...in conclusion, I would like to share a picture of the Thanksgiving cards I made yesterday. OK, these are super, super cute! And if you click on the picture you can read the funny little verse! Yes, I know this picture is sideways and I have absolutely no idea why it is. It is not sideways in the file but every single time I post it, it goes sideways so you'll have to tip your head...

I'm sorry.

It's a side-effect of sparkler brain.

Being unable to figure out things like sideways pictures.

So...I am off to put a damp towel on my head in hopes of taming this raging case I have.

And you might want to rub your scalp vigorously with some anti-bacterial soap just to be on the safe side.

Sigh...

Sparkler brain! Oh no. I hope it's not too contagious!
Happy to stumble upon your blog this morning, and sorry for the loss of your sister. But it was lovely of you to share such personal and beautiful things.

I could use a full blown case of sparkler brain right now. I am so unmotivated about things today...

Just stopping back over...Luckily they didn't spend more than I made, but did manage to spend a fair bit...and boy do they eat!

I make coffee cozies, bookmarks, gift card wallets, first birthday bibs, burp cloths, pillows..I'll post some pics on my blog later and you can see. I LOVE to sew! Have a great day!

I have sparkler brain all the time. I love your Thanksgiving card, even if it is sideways. I just tilted my head so I could read it. I'm sure I looked funny to my coworkers.
