Home Sweet Home ...

Back to my comfy bed, and ownspace with my gorgeous family to love on :)

But gosh and goodness I had me some fun!!

I love getting together with the LSBS girl's, it's like family really. I have been so blessed to be part of the teaching team for the last three years. This year I taught a mini album class made from scratch. It is one of my fave sizes for a mini album (12 x 6). We used some yummy Sass Lass papers, Vintage fabric and dictionary papers... YUMMY!!!!

Such FUN!!

So big hugs to all the girls, for the hugs and the laughs and the crazy fun you added to my weekend.

Love Lisa

Looking good!

Some of you will know that I have had a major health battle for the last six years, some of you will have no idea ! As the years have gone by I have been a little more open telling people what's going on, but I am still fairly carefull with who I share information with....

so when I started losing my hair 6 months ago, and it was starting to look like I couldn't hide it anymore, I totally freaked out.

You probably wonder why it has taken so long to share on my blog about my health. There are so many reasons. The main ones being that people just don't understand Rhematoid Arthritis, they assume it is an old person disease, they assume it only affects joints, they assume I have "sore knees".....blah blah blah.... they also have plenty of wonderful ways to cure me... *sigh* I get really really over it all.

ANYWAY.... six months ago I started losing my hair, and managed to lose over half of it, including a very very large bare spot on the crown of my head. EEEEEKKKKKKKK. Thankfully it is growing back and I have lots of lovely fluffy re-growth going on.

But everytime I looked in the mirror, because I was forced to cut my hair I saw a sick women, I saw an old women, I saw someone who wasn't me. So with encouragement and support from my hubby I had extensions put in my hair.

I can't even explain how wonderful it feels. I just see me now, not the disease and it is wonderful!!!

Onward and Upward!!
