Sorry for the brief delay....


Hi there!

I'm so sorry that I haven't posted this week...the migraine "issue" that I mentioned last week has taken its toll on me this week. I did have an MRI done this week, and it was normal, as I assumed it would be. I have been putting it off because I knew it wouldn't show anything and they are s0000000 expensive!! Anyway, I guess now we know for sure. I had malignant melanoma (skin cancer) in late 2006, so it's best to be safe now.

Anyway, I made this card a few weeks ago....I love how it turned out!! It is Papertrey's Out On A Limb set on the main image. Such a great set! The sentiment is one I picked up at my local stamp store and is from Penny Black. And all the little bling the middle of the flowers are little stickers by Stampendous. Very fun! :)

Thanks for stopping by and visiting me!

This is my first visit to your blog and I LOVE it!! Also wanted to send positive thoughts your way with all the health issues your family is dealing with. AND, just so you're absolutely sure I'm stalking you...I wanted to share my "secret migraine cure" with you. For about 2 years I was having chronic migraines (averaging 2-3 a week) and had just about every test you can name performed. Never found anything wrong. No over-the-counter pain killer worked when I would get a bad headache. Then I switched docs and my new doc suggested trying feverfew (an herbal supplement you can buy at GNC or any health food store), that there was some new research showing good things with preventing migraines. This was my last attempt before trying stronger prescription drugs for prevention (I do take Maxalt when I get a headache) and it worked amazingly well!! I take 2 feverfew caplets a day and now I only get a migraine once every few months (usually menstrual). It changed my life!!! Soooo, if the migraines continue to be a problem, look into the feverfew. Of course, check with your doctor first, especially if you have any weird allergies. And don't take it if you're pregnant. Good luck!!
