I have hesitated to share this with everyone for some time, but decided to share today. On March 10th of this year I was diagnosed with Stage 3a Invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC) ER& PR Positive Grade 2 breast cancer on my right breast, I have two tumors that combined are 7 cm with one lymph node at 2.5 cm. I have been going every year since I was 40 to get my mammogram last year my mammogram was clear and one year later they found the mass and the biopsy confirmed it. I am not one to do my month self exam so ladies please make sure you do your monthly exams and yearly mammograms. 
After talking with my surgeon and oncologist we have mapped out a treatment plan which started at the end of March. I had a PET/CT scan to determine if the cancer had spread to other parts of my body, which it has not. I will have two different rounds of chemo each lasting 3 months; the first round is Taxol which I receive every week for 12 treatments. My second round will be Adriamycin and Cytoxan this wi…

And A Child Shall Lead Them

Today is Election Day a time to make your voice heard a privilege we Americans sometimes take for granted. This is a privilege many people have died for to insure that generations are allowed the same freedom our fore fathers granted us. As a child my earliest memories of Election Day was going with my mom before school to vote the voting precinct was located at my elementary school. We would go behind the curtain as she explained to me what a privilege it was to pull the lever to make your voice heard. My father was the news junkie he is the one to teach me about politics we would argue as I got older about certain issues, but he also taught me that everyone has an opinion though you may not agree with that opinion you must respect that person’s right to have it and though the canidate you voted for is not elected you must respect the office and whom every is elected to it. He said it did not mean you could not bitch about it, but you must understand that the majority ha…

The Craftroom Fairy

I have been in a creative funk lately, the inter working of my mind has taken a vacation and left me with a dull do nothing attitude that is until I did my daily blog reading at Creative Breathing and Elizabeth had made a wonderful button keeper out of paperclay.  I bought some paper clay back in December hoping to create some fun snowmen but never did, so her button keeper inspired me to try my hand at it.  When I started I told myself to let it tell me what it wanted to be I worked on it one night, then two days later I painted it and so on until it said Hey Shean I want to be a craft room fairy to help you get inspired.  So here is my first paper clay creation with more to come soon.  Thank you Elizabeth for the inspiration it helped my mind come back from vacation.

Be a long time since I blogged, but life has a way of giving you detours.  In the last 5 months my great nephew has grown and many pictures have been taken of him, my son turned 21 and had his first shot while in South by Southwest pilgrimage and my nephew will be graduating from high school at the end of this month. So my plate has been full doing stuff around the house and relaxing. So I thought I would add a few photos from the first 5 months of 2012. These photos where edited by using Picmonkey.
