scratch, scratch, scratch

Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream, remember that campers for the next time you get a case of Poison Ivy or Oak. Remember all the yard work I did with number one son and Zeus? Well, Zeus got into something and I managed to get some on the inside of my arm, I suspect from carrying his work clothes into the laundry room.
We tried the usual remedies and nothing seemed to be stopping the spread. One trip to the doctor and a prescription for this cream and we are both in a comfort zone now.

First sunny day in a while, I'm off to take some photos, walk in the gym, pick up some frames and mats for framing and then out to the studio. Time to get busy with my Full Moon doll for the month and some other projects.

Picture day for the Hanging Out The Laundry is Monday. I did cut three feet of clothesline and hang it up in the studio. I put some tentative things on it to see how much I could hang and it looks like five to six items. I have to condense my storyboard a little. My plan is to have each item hanging tell part of the story. I also want to use different mixed media techniques for each hanging piece. This may take longer than the four months I had slated for it. We'll see how it goes.

Riley has started stringing sounds together into what sounds like a sentence. She has the cadence going. I find the development of language fascinating. In another life I would have studied this.

I hope you all have a creative day.

:)Bea Create, throw yourself into it.


  1. OMG! I'm so sorry you had to deal with poison ivy or oak! I haven't had it since I was a kid and I plan to keep it that way! :)

  2. LOL I had completely forgotten about it over the years. If he hadn't of wandered into uncharted prairie he wouldn't have gotten it and in the interests of sharing, with me. :)Bea

  3. I am soooo allergic to poison Lupus makes me spread the reaction through my whole body. Steroids are somewhat helpful!!! Riley is at that delightful age and every day is an amazing revelation to those around her! Have a great weekend! Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

  4. yuck - PI!! my cat used to bring it home, I'd pet him and get it between my fingers. awful!!! but at least something is helping.
    have a lovely weekend

  5. That stuff sounds awful, I'm glad the cream provided some relief. You'll laugh at my tic story. I picked up a load of them in the grass at The Burren. I must have had about 10 of them and they were so tiny Jim could hardly see them! All gone now thank goodness.

    I too adore the development of language. Kitty is saying 'Mom' and 'Dad' and 'Jack' very clearly - she'll be one on Thursday can you believe? Oh, that's today!! Poppy's speech is just enchanting though.
