Post Surgery

Hello Everyone,

It has been one difficult year for me.  After trying to save my thyroid for a year, it was compressing my windpipe so I had surgery to remove it. I am recovering and taking it easy. I am excited to get back into crafting again and am working on some new ideas and videos for the new year.

I also am going to dedicate a page on my blog to my thyroid journey. There are many who are like me struggling with thyroid issues and there isn't a lot of information out there to help. Even doctors are uncertain with regards to the thyroid. It's one of the most under studied organs of the body and yet is responsible for so much.  If you or anyone you know is struggling with thyroid issues, please check back soon to my thyroid protocol page as I update it with my journey to health.

Thanks so much for stopping by,

2 pieces of medium weight black chipboard 12x12 for the covers and the spine

Adhesive: Scor tape in 1/4 inch, 1/8 inch, 1/2 inch. Scotch quick dry glue, glossy accents

Embellishments: Prima and Kaisercraft flowers, prima pearls, Stampin up ribbon, suede for the buckle, Tim Holtz buckle, Tim Holtz ring Fastener, charms, button, twine in black
