Good thing : Recipie for a flu remidi

As per my last post i am under the flu attack but one thing that saved me from flu turning to cough and a longer illness is a recipe which i have found very practical and i thought it is a good thing to share with other too.
For kids all ages over 2
1 tsp honey
pinch cinnamon powder
small pinch (bearable) black pepper
1/2 tsp ginger juice , (can be obtained by crushing 1/2 inch piece of ginger and then pressing between your CLEAN fingers)
Mix and give 2 times a day.

Cinnamon and ginger have expectorant qualities and black pepper and honey help sooth the throat while drying up the flu.
The Ultimate Flu Prevention tea
Mix all the above ingredients , instead of cinnamon powder add 1 stick of it , instead of crushed ginger add 1inch piece of it and a few noncrushed black pepper seeds. Add water bring to a boil and leave to simmer for 10-15 minutes take this tea as many times as you can
it is Very effective. Try it let me know if it worked for you !

Product update :- Not much happening still loadz!

I have down with flu and temperature for the last couple of days and i think during this time i have created more colorful graphics than the usual days :) . While browsing my latest find is a very yummy blog which i think i found at just the right time when i am exploring colors and trying to find inspirations. The blog is Simply Hue . Although i haven't browsed through the past posts but the flickr collections of color inspirations are just so very lovely!.
Maybe i will get some more inspiration and create some color swatches from these collections later on.
Latest on the store front has been a few products additions which i would really love to share with you . The one that took a little time for me to create is the Calender 2010 photoshop brushes set.

Creating a calender is just so easy with this one with unlimited possibilities! and if you are a bit crafty soul , print them out , cut them out punch a hole on top and hang it anywhere!
And after this two new additions are brand new sets set for the holiday season "Tis the season" Added to the Etsy store check then out here.
