At 45, I picked up my first stamp and that was it: Now, I can throw the word ‘ephemera’ around with confidence, yet struggle with inappropriate feelings for chipboard. I'm not very polished and I'm still trying to get the hang of 'winning friends and influencing people', but for some crazy reason, this papercraft thing and I FIT! My kids are covered with glitter, my husband wonders how you injure yourself with Stickles, but we all agree on this: I'm a MUCH better person when I'm here!

CAS-3 for ME and a little bit about Dercum's Disease!!
Oh Lord, what a week. Kidney infection, non-existent Vitamin D levels (hmmm...wonder what in the world could be keeping me from going outside and keeping that old D level going?) and complications from Dercum's Disease.
For those of you who don't know what this is, or know someone that has been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, please check this out! Dercum's is the 3rd rarest disease in the world. The people I know with Dercum's were all diagnosed with Fibro and I'm convinced that DS isn't rare...it's just misdiagnosed as Fibro. Please....PLEASE have your fibro friends check this out! Dercum's Disease
I'm sorry for the seriousness but the truth of the matter is that the more people who are correctly diagnosed, more money is invested in treatment, research, drugs, etc.
Thanks for your patience and enjoy my CAS challenge. It's bingo time and I got Die Cuts, Bling and Birthday. I'm pretty run down but I PROMISE to be back to form tomorrow!
