Wow, this week has just begun and it already has become difficult. First, Keagan woke up with a swollen eye and gunk yesterday morning, but we thought it was just allergies. When we dropped him off at the sitter, we learned that another boy had pink-eye. After his eye ended up getting worse, my father-in-law had to pick him up. I stayed home with him today to take him to the doctor. Hopefully it will be cleared up tomorrow so he can go back to the sitter. Otherwise tomorrow will be another day at home. We'll see!
Then I get home yesterday and learn about the tragedy in Boston. I am not and have no desire to be a runner, but I have met quite a few through my weight-loss journey (mostly online). My heart goes out to all who were affected, and I am praying for their friends and families as well. Prayers that no more lives are lost!
My sweet friend, Holly, has been running this linky for a few weeks. I have done it once, but I just can't seem to get it together enough to join most weeks. Since I was home today, I decided I should at least make a short post about what I actually tried today (and next week's may be about what I'm trying tonight!). Yesterday I mentioned that I was going to try and make my own clipart since I couldn't find anything I liked for Cinco de Mayo. I'm still working on it because I can't figure out how to make the white background go away. Anyone that can walk me through that?
Well, I drew it by hand since I was testing yesterday and left my book at home. Then I scanned it and copied each item into paint to color. That's as far as I've gotten so far, but I think the items are looking cute! I'm going to share one with you as a free sample, and if anyone can tell me how to make the background transparent, I'll give you the whole set for free (that's 31 items - 10 black and white, 21 color)!!
