Well, there's another life experience under my belt. I don't think I ever need to repeat the questionable delights of catching pinkeye, thanks.
Now that I can see again, it's time to share the joy! Many goodies have been coming here in the mail as of late: some Christmas cards, two huge and delightful bundles of yarn for making gifties (I hereby promise this will not turn into a knitting blog), and a luscious parcel from the UK.
Thank you, thank you, a thousand thanks to Gretel! I love my "Three Kings" cards, and ate up the Schoolgirls' Adventure Library comic (it's a Nancy Drew-style story set in a '50s-era English public school for girls, and yes, our spunky heroines save the day). Too much fun.
Gretel was also kind enough to send me a set of upside-down cards from the "triple bugger in a marmalade sandwich" print run, and since she mentioned she was curious to see what I'd do with them, I hereby present a quick before-and-after photo:
On the back of each one will be the following verbiage, giving proper credit where it's due:

Hope that'll work. I'm thinking about mounting each one on a different-colored background, just to see how the focal colors of the artwork change.
Now I've got to be crazy busy. Christmas approacheth post haste, and I got essentially NOTHING done while I had pinkeye (not even the bills, alas). Time to play a frantic game of catch-up.
