good medicine quickfire

“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 ButtonIt’s week two of our good medicine challenge. This challenge is inspired by a care package my mother’s cousin sent me when I was a little girl stuck in bed with rheumatic fever. I was convinced her box of little gifts were what got me well – not all those penicillin shots. It was good medicine!

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

  • Include a link to us at Catered Crop or add our button, which you can grab on our sidebar or at our {button gallery}.
  • Link up and link often, but be sure you link up by 8:00 PM EST on Saturday, September 27.
  • Keep the party hopping by visiting the other players and leaving comments.
  • Check back with us on September 28 to see if you’ve won an opportunity to be a guest designer.

Here’s a Pinterest board of suggestions: Get Well. And, as always, our fabulous designers are here to offer their therapy of get well cards. Just click on the pictures of the cards to visit their blogs and say hi.

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
