Been that long?

No card,ornament or other to show. I cannot believe it has been this long since I have posted anything on my blog. I know I promised to show more of the christmas ornaments I have made, but just haven't taken the pictures and life has been really CRAZY right now!!!!! So please bear with me and I will get them posted.

I have not even visited my fellow blogging sisters to leave comments and certainly need to visit everyone and will do that this week I promise.

I did have a nice surprise from my sweet hubby..he purchased the Cricut Expression for me along with 6 cartridges and the studio. YIPPEE!!!! I have yet to play with it and figure out how it all works, but I know once I learn it will be smooth sailing.

I hope you all had a restful weekend and that you were able to get some projects done. I cannot believe we are two months away from Christmas!!!!! Please continue to visit as I promise to have more items to show.

Breast Cancer......Men?

I don't have a card today, but just wanted to make sure that all you gals are having your yearly exam of your ladies. I read more and more of this terrible disease taking lives of younger women and have personally lost a friend to this disease. Be proud to wear pink all month long and pass the word on to others, even if they are strangers. I have a button that says "Have your ladies been checked?" Of course you can imagine the looks I get from people especially the men, but it is food for thought and hopefully it will make a light bulb go off in their heads. This year alone 1500 men will get breast cancer and of that 1500, 400 of them will die because they didn't realize they can get breast cancer as they believe only women get it! Cancer knows no gender!!!! Be sure to have your hubby's checked as well! My sweet DH thought it was just a sore spot on his left breast, he mentioned it to the doctor when he went in for his annual exam. The doctor began feeling his right one and then pushed on his left breast which about sent DH through the roof from the intense pain; the doctor immediately had him sent for a bioptsy and when the results came back it turned out to be cancer and was at Stage 2. My husband had a radical left masectomy 3 years ago and remains cancer free..praising God for his goodness!!!! You still are asking yourself "men can get breast cancer"? Yes men can get breast cancer. It is only a percentage of 5% of men who do, but they have all the same glands as we do as the doctor explained to me, they just don't develop because of the testosterone. I just wanted to give you all a friendly reminder to remember to get them squished and examined and make your hubby do the same! He may laugh at you, but share this story and it will make him think twice about having an exam this I can guarantee.

Lots of love and prayers to each and everyone of you who have beaten this and to those who are going through it!
