good medicine recipe swap

“I don’t feel very much like Pooh today,” said Pooh.
“There there,” said Piglet. “I’ll bring you tea and honey until you do.”
~ A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

Catered Crop Recipe Swap ButtonPoor Pooh Bear. I know just how he feels.

I spent half of the first grade stuck in bed. Strict bed rest was standard treatment for rheumatic fever so the most exciting part of my day was moving from my bed to the couch. My only visitors were the nurses who came to give antibiotic injections. Oh yeah! That will traumatize a little kid.

While my adorable twin sister was out playing, I was stuck inside staring at the ceiling. But, I made her and all my little friends jealous when I got a package in the mail from my Mom’s Cousin Helen Luth. Mom’s cousin sent me a box full of little presents with instructions to open only one a day. It was the best medicine Ever! – better than all the shots and bed rest. There were enough presents to last a whole month. I got well before I opened the last present so, of course, I always thought it was Cousin Helen who cured me.

For this challenge we want you to make a little good medicine – a get well card (or care package).

new again recipe swap quickfire

Don’t throw the past away
You might need it some rainy day
Dreams can come true again
When everything old is new again
~ lyrics by Peter Allen, 1979

Catered Crop Recipe Swap ButtonA thread at the Splitcoast Stampers forum, Stamping Graveyard, made me nostalgic for paper craft supplies, embellishments and tools that have come, gone, come back, or left for good.
