Great News

We saw Dr. Delashaw, a neurosurgeon with OHSU today. He says that Brett does not have a colloid cyst. He said he does not know what the film shows but that it does not look like a colloid cyst would look. He had three other surgeons looking at the film and they were all scratching their heads. He also said it does not look like anything to be worried about at this point. We scheduled another scan for June 4th to see if it changes. If it does change then he would want to do surgery. If it doesn't change then they would continue to monitor it. He said that it is possible that this is something that has been there Brett's entire life and it may just be there and maybe nothing would ever have to be done to it.

Updates on Brett

I have decided to use my blog to keep friends and family udpated on Brett. He has a colloid cyst deep in his brain. This is not cancerous but it is a concern because it can cause complications or death if left untreated. Surgery is another concern and can also cause all sorts of complications. We are meeting with a neurosurgeon today at OHSU and should have more information on what will be happening. I will post updates as I know more. We appreciate your prayers and positive thoughts.

Super Cute Halloween Cards

These are two really great Halloween cards that I have recently received. The card on the left came from a recent meeting and I believe this is a copy of a card front received as a swap at Convention. Sorry but I don't know who to give credit to for this idea. The card uses the stamp set 'Halloween Frights' and the 'Modern Label' punch was used to make the fence. The card (with the candy) on the right was created by my upline and friend Susan Rodgers and uses the Sweet Centers stamp set which is in the Holiday Mini Catalog. We will be making these cards at my Fall/Halloween Workshop on September 17th. If you would like to attend please RSVP at

Gift Tags/Card Candy

I made these for a swap next month. The idea was to make something (other than a card) using new product from the Holiday Mini Catalog. These are small packages of gift tags and I thought they would make great hostess gifts.
