Strep Throat and DIY Camera Bag

I feel like I've kind of dropped off of the face of the planet. Planet Blogworld, that is. What have I been doing, you ask? I've been taking care of this:

Poor little girl! Her fever was up to 104 so I took her to the doctor. Turns out she had strep throat and hasn't let me do much of anything. But it's actually been kind of nice to be able to just hold her and love her while she actually holds still! I hope she can kick this illness soon!

Other than that, I've done a few guest posts on some great blogs this week! This one was posted a few days ago:

A Turtles Life For Me: Guest Post

and there's another one coming up tomorrow. It's so exciting! I can't believe people want to hear from little ol' me! :)

Oh! On another note...I made a camera bag this week! I had an old purse that has been sitting around for a while, and then I saw THIS tutorial on how to make your own camera bag out of a purse. Thank you, Crafter's File Box! :)

Here it is from the outside....lots of pockets and flat bottom. PERFECT for a camera bag.

And the inside. The tutorial was really easy to follow! I only have one other lens (for now...) so I only made one section to hold the lens. If I get more lenses later I'll have plenty of room to add more sections. I'm really happy with how it turned out! It'll be great for vacation because I can use it as my purse AND my camera bag! Yaaaaaay!

(picture credit goes to my 7 year old for this one! Hahaha!)

So...yes, I'm still alive and kicking! And praying my little Katesters gets better soon and I can get a full night's sleep tonight! ;)

Until next time...
