Amazing Etsy Monday!

Welcome to Amazing Etsy Monday.
I feature undiscovered treasures just waiting for someone to love and adore them.
  I try to do this each Monday, but apparently I have slacked a bit the last 2 or 3 weeks.  Sorry

So anyway..... as of the moment I searched through Etsy, none of these shop owners have had any sales in their stores. There are so many amazing Etsy items available,

these just need a little extra attention because they really really deserve it.   I also try to choose items with very reasonable prices.

If you aren't familiar with Etsy, you have been missing out.

It's a super fabulous web home to crafters & artists of all types.

You can find something for just a couple bucks to something a few hundred dollars. Who knows, maybe even in the thousands.

I know there are some one of a kind large paintings and sculptures available.

Hopefully you like some of these awesome finds...

(all item descriptions are linked so you can easily shop)

I'm also including the list prices too.. some are fabulous bargains!

I hope you enjoyed my newest finds.  
ok... so have I spurred you to do any fabulous Etsy shopping this week?

Valley Fever 411

hey friends...

If you saw my retirement post, then you saw that I was diagnosed last Thursday with Valley Fever. It was pretty ironic that it was the same week as Valley Fever Awareness week. It's a fungal airborne disease that is primarily in the SW of the US. Unfortunately it is very commonly misdiagnosed and many doctors don't even test for it. Most of the cases of pneumonia in the SW are actually Valley Fever (fungal, not bacterial).

After having a dry cough off and on for a really long time one of my co-workers suggested that I might have Valley Fever. Well, I didn't know much about it so I googled it (with Swagbucks) when I got home that night. I found out that it mainly attacks the lungs, but it could spread to several parts of the body, including joint issues. Well, my knees and ankles really started bothering me a few days before that and felt really heavy. I went to my dr. a few days later, had lots of blood work done, and tested negative for Lupus, kidneys, and Rheumatoid Arthritis. He said I was an interesting puzzle and that it was probably just viral and would go away by itself in a couple weeks and to come back and see him in a month if I was still having issues. He also wanted me to continue taking the Nuproxin he prescribed. Instead I went to a different dr. for another opinion. After our consultation, she decided to test for Valley Fever and Lyme Disease. She also took me off of the Nuproxin and said that Advil should be fine.

I also realized since all this that I do have a shortness of breath sometimes and that I have been pretty exhausted (when I stop and allow myself to have a little downtime). Tonight it's 12:34am and probably the latest I've been awake in quite a while.

Sooooo... now ... it's been five weeks since this all started. Last Thursday I was diagnosed with Valley Fever. Today I was prescribed Diflucon. I have to take 400 mg/day for a month. Since it can mess with my liver I have to go back and have my blood drawn again in two weeks to make sure the meds are cooperating ok with my body. In a month she is hoping to decrease the dosage or stop it completely. She is hoping that the Valley Fever will be flushed out of my body within 1-2 months. YAY! It will be so nice when my knees and ankles are normal again.

Luckily I have a somewhat mild case of it.

I'm retiring!!!!!!!

yes... November 30th is my final day.

I am retiring from designing (for the most part). This is the time for you to grab my goodies for dirt cheap. Nothing in my store is over $2. Most everything is $1.25 and under. (my collab, Rockabilly Tweets is excluded)

I will be still designing from time to time and offering my goodies on my blog and advertising them on my Facebook Fan page.

I'm looking forward to no deadlines, blogging about my bargain finds, Valley Fever info, and whatever else I feel like.

(I was diagnosed last Thursday with Valley Fever and I find out Tuesday morning about my "treatment options". I'm hoping it's something very reasonable)

*ETA - I'm not retiring only because of having Valley Fever. I've been thinking about it for a little while before this even happened. I am just ready for having the time to possibly scrap again, having no design deadlines, being able to start a new blog about misc bargains & information - including designs on there from time to time.,,,,, and just feeling like I have more freedom for whatever.

Thanks so much for supporting me at SDD, my previous stores, and in our digiscrap community. I truly appreciate it!
