My Weekend

I wanted to share with everyone a blog that I spent my weekend reading!

As you can see I am fairly new to this blogging world and I am crazy gaga for it!  I spend an ungodly amount of time looking at every ones blogs and admiring all the great decorating and crafty items that everyone shares....it amazes me beyond measure the talent that is out there in the blogesphere (sp)!

Last week while poking around in one linky party or another I came across a post from Cheryl at My Sisters Cottage that was about storage for her multitude of rubber stamps that she has.  I sent her a message telling her about the "huge" box of rubber stamps that I found at GW and I dug through them and picked out a few that were really nice.  I also took her button while I was visiting and posted it to the side bar of my blog.  The next day Cheryl had a post about "Using the Fancy Towels" and it was through reading this post that I came to know her sister Nancy at It's Always Something and her battle with Ovarian Cancer.  This is a blog that was shared by the sisters and if you do nothing else but read the sidebar for the signs and symptoms of Ovarian Cancer then you are ahead of the game. 

Unfortunately Nancy Tufts lost her battle with Ovarian Cancer on November 14, 2010.  Needless to say I will be one person who will be using the "Fancy Towels" from now on!  As I told Cheryl in a message "Life is too short to only use the good stuff on special occasions"! Her story has greatly impacted my life!  Thanks Cheryl for sharing!

Sue,
Thank you so much for your kind words about my blog on yours...and especially for sharing Nancy's story. If we can save one more woman from going through what Nancy did it will be so worth it! She was so funny and I'm glad you enjoyed reading her story, even if the ending was a very sad one. She was so full of life for every minute she had.
I love your new blog and have become your newest Follower. If I can help you with any of the "techy blog stuff", just send me an e-mail and I'll try my best. I've added your button to my sidebar and I think I'll just have to start writing a post about your blog now!
Hugs,
Cheryl
p.s. You have a beautiful family...love the bling!
