Good News! and Cuteness too!
YAY! Something good finally came out of Dh's diagnosis. He got admitted on Friday(that's not the good part) for having an allergic reaction to one of his seizure meds. He developed a rash so hot you could almost cook an egg on it. Poor guy, but he's home now and feeling MUCH better. Anyway, they finally told us what he has. He has anaplastic astrocytoma. I don't know a whole lot about it, but I am sure we'll know more tomorrow when we see the oncologist. The dr. said it's a Grade III, BUT, with treatment he should live a long, and great life. So that's AWESOME.
We are so relieved and happy, of course!
Anyway, I was doing a photo shoot for my Etsy shop. Miss Princess Nosy Pants had to be nosy and get a few shoots in there too. I like how many of them came out-the lighting, the cuteness on her face (even though I know she's thinking of her next plan to destroy something) and the way she is laying. She drives me bananas sometimes but her cuteness takes the cake! :)
I took a trip to visit my mom and stepdad about 6 years ago. I had lots of memorabilia from that trip and decided to make a scrapbook. I enjoyed making those first pages, and since then my style has changed so much. I never knew how much joy I get out of making things out of paper. It also is very relaxing for me when I am under stress.
I found the Etsy site through another website I frequent that is for scrapbookers.
I decided that, in addition to making my own albums, and gifts for friends and families that I could make some money doing it too, and that's how www.paperika.etsy.com was born!
