Unicorns are a reminder we are all special and very unique from one another. My newest kit is called MagiCorn.


This month is  Arthritis Awareness

” Over 50 million Americans have arthritis, making it the number one cause of disability in the country. That means 1 in every 5 adults, 300,000 children and countless families. These numbers are only going to keep growing—unless we take a stand. The first steps in conquering arthritis are learning the facts, understanding your condition and knowing that help is by your side.”

How do we diagnose Vasculitis?

Patients with vasculitis learn that making the diagnosis is sometimes quite difficult. Many endure numerous doctors’ visits, tests, and hospitalizations before the pieces of the puzzle are assembled. The diagnosis of vasculitis usually requires a biopsy of an involved organ (skin, kidney, lung, nerve, temporal artery). This allows us to ‘see’ the vasculitis by looking under a microscope to see the inflammatory immune cells in the wall of the blood vessel. Although, making a diagnosis of vasculitis can be quite involved, this is very important for two main reasons:


What are the symptoms of vasculitis?

The symptoms of vasculitis depend on the particular blood vessels that are involved by the inflammatory process.

Different types of vasculitis involve blood vessels in characteristic locations throughout the body. For example, Giant Cell Arteritis typically involves the medium– to large–sized blood vessels supplying the head and neck, but rarely involves the blood vessels of the kidneys. In contrast, Wegener’s Granulomatosis (GPA) frequently involves the kidneys, very often the lungs, and almost always the upper respiratory tract, but rarely blood vessels to the brain. As depicted in the image below, Buerger’s disease involves the fingers and (toes). Gangrene can result from a profound lack of blood flow.

My latest kit is called Passing Moment – I was planning to create a steam-punk type kit or a wood veneer type with this color scheme. However it ended up with 2 sheep, 2 bunnies, 2 piggies, and 4 girls. I’ve also included some layered paper flowers (its my new thing – they are just fun to make).


I too have joined the Planner Addict community and created these printable sheets. The labels are measured for the ECLP, however I use these goodies with a little washi tape in my Happy Planner.


Matching this months blog train color scheme is this planner sheet – Lemonade – perfect to start your summer!!!


And matching kit which includes a set of lowercase alpha!


For the real reason why you came to visit – here is my contribution to the blog train. Sampler includes 3 papers and 5 elements.

iNSD Weekend over at Wilma4Ever Store


International Scrapbooking Weekend runs from May 5 to May 8, 2016

Our theme is “International Woman”
Think of a smart and clever gal, who is worldly, street smart, super fashionable yet sensible, and knows what she wants out of life. She is wise beyond her years, well-traveled, and she and her friends know how to have a good time. She is good at everything she does, and on the off chance something doesn’t work out, she doesn’t give up! She’s the best of best friends and loves animals and the environment. She works hard and plays hard.


I created a mini collection for each of the colors – Sampler kit includes 1 pattern paper, 1 solid textured paper, 1 frame, 1 layered paper flower, 1 word art flair/brad, and 1 set of lowercase alpha.

During iNSD weekend these sampler kits are on sale for $1 (reg price $2.50).
