Free DVD, Monsoons and Fabric

A few totally unrelated things today....

Each time my friend Nancy has undergone chemo, she has taken on a project that helped keep her mind off of herself and helped her to focus on others. Her first project was a Yoga DVD for Breast Cancer Recovery. She worked with a friend of hers, received some funding and created a wonderful DVD to help people with the negative affects of chemo and to help increase arm mobility through yoga. I have 3 of the DVDs that I would like to give to anyone that needs them. The DVDs have always been free and I will pay to send them out. So, if you or someone you know could use one of them, please e-mail me at Leave your name and address and I will get it in the mail to you next week. If I have more than three requests, I am able to get more. :)

Mother Nature is very angry with Illinois this weekend. In fact she is darn right pissed off! She has been raining on us all weekend and I'm not talking about a little shower here and a little shower there....I mean we have the start of a small lake in our backyard and we rarely have water in our back yard. There are flood warnings all over the place! Poor Wrigley doesn't really care for water all that much and she is a bit confused by it all. My thought though, is that if we get all of this nastiness out of the way this weekend....then next weekend will be beautiful for the wedding!

As you know I am making ceramic tile coasters for MyOtherShop now. I have done paper on ceramic and paper on glass, and now I am doing fabric on ceramic. I had so much fun buying fabric last weekend and I have so many awesome ones that it's hard to decide what to use next! I have three sets almost done that I hope to list later this week...bold colorful flowers, gorgeous dogs and an awesome black and white floral print. Here is the fabric I am making a set out of now. It is unreal and I can't wait to get them done!

And lanyard answer your question about whether I will be blogging next Saturday....if I can find a computer can be sure that I will be dropping in to say hello!

Hi Kathy, I would love a copy of the DVD. Maybe you can pop it in with the coasters:)
My m9om had a mastectomy and a dear neighbor of mine did. I walked the entire road with her and it was a very difficult one that we ended together.H er daughter has since been living with another neighbor friend of mine.A long and interesting and sad story. A
Anyway.... I would like to donate it to the "sunshine" room at our local hospital on the chemo floor. It is a spot where massage therapists, Reikei practioners, hairdressers etc. volunteer their time to help make the lives of patients undergoing treatment better. I think it would get some good use there. thanks for your offer.

I just LOVE the good you're helping Nancy spread to folks that need a little positive energy! I came here to let you know that I've nominated you for a "Lemonade Award" and this post is a perfect example of why I chose you!

See my blog for details. :D
