More Fun News - A giveaway and a discount. Unheard of!

Well can you stand it?  One more giveaway.
I have been reading and perusing Small Magazine since their first issue.  About 2 1/2 years ago.  It is full of  wonderful, quirky and delicious things for children and their families.   Art, clothing, toys, books, projects, recipes.....they cover it all.  If you aren't familiar with them run, don't walk,  to their site.  It is a feast for the eyes and it's is free.

So our friends at Small have a blog and the blog has a giveaway this week.  Can you guess?
Yup!  Dear Camille is up for grabs this week.  So also get on over (Monday morning)  to Smaller and leave a comment.  You could be the winner.

And finally.  There is  a discount code for you in the Smaller Giveaway Post.  I am offering a 20% discount for custom dolls ordered for January, February and March delivery.  This means a 17" doll is $132 instead of $165,  15" doll is $116 instead of $145 and the 13" doll is $100 instead of $125.
This code is good  till Sunday September 5th at 12am (PDT) or the first 30 orders.   Shipping is not included in the discount.
Get the code from the Smaller blog and email me directly for ordering a doll.

Mystery Solved

Recall the little lung thingy I was faced with last month?  If not,  I will sum up.  I acquired Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis.  This is a fancy term for very inflamed lungs that do not want to process oxygen therefore leaving me feeling lethargic and out of breath.  No fun.

I have been on oxygen and steroids for a month now and they are working their magic.  The steroids, of course, come with a price.  So far an additional 7 pounds have found me. I wake up most mornings around 4:30.  I am HYPER in the morning and into the day.  I often crash around 4pm.

I had my follow up visit yesterday and things are going very well.  They are dropping my dose by 10mgs a week till I am on a minimal dose.  I don't need the oxygen unless I am active.  Is sewing really very active?

The other good news is that they are certain of the cause.  This was a big worry for Mr. Hamby and me as we did not know if it was in our home or nearby environment.  The blood work revealed that I have the antibodies for the exact fungus that lives in air conditioning and swamp coolers.   The condition revealed itself soon after our visit to Las Vegas and, as you may imagine, we were in air conditioning the whole time.  We stayed at the Excalibur and they were working on the air conditioning system on our floor the whole time we were there.  Hmmm....

This is enlightening at best.  I still have to finish healing and I feel very fortunate  to be able work at home and feel secure the "itis" didn't come from my own environment. Life is still very good indeed.

On a completely unrelated note....say hello to one of my new favorite fabrics.
