Here we go--

Cryotherapy went well on Thursday. Now I have a big blister next to my left eye. It will scab then fall off. Visit the doc in 3 weeks to make sure it was all caught then clean bill of health. Using sunscreen and looking for floppy hats!! I don't look good in hats! I also told my friends that I DID NOT want to end up with 50 hats for my 50th birthday! Seriously. Not funny. Ok, maybe a little bit.

A funny thing happened the other day. I was reading Scrap Scene and saw this really cool recipe kit. So I went to . I ordered it because it is adorable and I thought it might make a cute Christmas present for my mother-in-law. She's very difficult to buy for so I usually make a home decor item. Then, lo and behold I get an e-mail from Lisa Falduto the owner of the site and it turns out that I know her!!! We were 2 of the original 12 doing the Cricut demos at Costcos! How cool is that?? I mean, she is such a cool designer and her blog is awesome and so are her kits. And I know her! You HAVE to go see her website. I can't wait to see what the July kits are going to be. What's cool about the kits is that you can order the one(s) you want but you aren't obligated to get them all. So you aren't stuck with something you don't like. Yes, when my kit comes I will take a picture and post it here. My web techie Corinna will do the putting of the picture on since I'm still learning, but it's exciting, isn't it??

See a Spot, Call a Doc

Just a little reminder to everyone that since the warmer months are upon us to keep an eye on our skin and if you see any unusual spots on your skin please contact your doctor. I had a spot near my left eye that made me uncomfortable so I made an appointment to see a dermatologist. Am I glad I did. She took a biopsy and it came back early stage cancer so I am having it removed next Thursday. Some of you may know that my sister passed away 2 years ago from ovarian cancer but she also had melanoma. If she had caught it in its early stages it wouldn't have advanced to that stage. I'm not a big sunbather tho I did do my share in my teen years and when my friend owned a tanning salon years ago but I'm bored easily and need to be doing something instead of sitting there. So, I don't want to be preachy, but please, it's better to be safe than sorry. Keep me in your thoughts next week.

Have a great weekend!
