Well its off to Surgery

I saw the doctor today and we discussed my grapefruit sized cyst. He suggested that I try to remove just one ovary instead of both. Even though I am 51 yrs old, my ovaries still produce a little of the much needed hormones. Better to have the natural one instead of the fake one hey. My right ovary will be checked out and if it doesn't look good, it goes too! My left ovary will be taken out on the 12th if I can get some medicare from the state. See my husband is still unemployed, he is working part time for a friend but it is not enough to take care of all those wonderful medical expenses. I will still get the surgery but I have to jump through all the hoops with the state and hospital first.

Anyway, God is so good. The doctor I am seeing is a Christian dr. and he is only charging me 30% $450 instead of the normal $1,700 to do the surgery. The hospital will charge me well you know, and arm and a leg and then some. Why I get charged $20 per pill is beyond me.

Once everything is taken care of (paper work) then I get my surgery which I need of course. I feel this thing in there every day. Some days it hurts alot. So it's gotta go now. Please pray for me gals that I can get all the financial help possible, that God will open all the doors so we don't sink further in the financial hole than we are already. Jobs here are sparse at best and I can't really get one right now. I still want to finish school which will open up more doors and help pay bills better than minimum wage will.

Thanks for thinking and praying for me and of course all your kind words and encouragement. I will keep you posted on my progress. Have a wonderful, creative night. God bless. Cathy

Been a Little Under the Weather but Better

It's been almost two weeks since my last post. I have not been well I'm afraid. I landed in the ER last Tuesday with unbelievable pain in my ovary. The last time I felt pain like that was when my gallbladder went out of control. Grrrrr!!!!! So needless to say I haven't been here to post. The doctor found a grapefruit sized cyst in my lower left ovary. OMG!!!! Right! The tests reveal it is NOT cancerous. Yippee!!!! But it needs to come out. I will see him tomorrow to decide how, where and what will be done.

In the meantime, I have been working on these silly little dolls and critters. I took a class on Paperclay with Nancye Williams and I still can't get my foil head right, so at this time, I'm using Styrofoam balls. LOL!



I was so unsure of myself that I did the head, neck and bust separately. Why am I such a chicken, hee, hee!


I managed to get a whole bust on each one except the Scrappy Cat. She won't be getting a bust but a body.

This is Scrappy Cat. LOL! I have a whole slew of ideas with this one. Lots of groovy Halloween ideas that I have sketched out and she/he is the first to be created. Time to finish up these little darlings hey?!?

Well I will keep you posted on my doctors visit, I go tomorrow. Have a wonderful, creative day.

Hugs, Cathy

A Funny Little Story of Pink and Blue

Once apon a time in a far away place called West Va. a woman was browsing one of her favorite blogs and discovered the land of Lollishops.com. "Oooooooh" she said with a gasp. "How very nice and what is all this pink and blue?" So she searched and searched and searched some more of this wonderful lolliland of shops, going to and fro loving all the wonderful goodies she found there.

One day she got the greatest idea!!! "I want to live in the land of Lollishops." So she set forth to create wonderful wings of blue and pink, sprinkled with glitter. She also made glorious paper music crowns to go atop each of her new creations.

Day after day she toiled and worked and toiled some more, working diligently on her newest creations. Some went to a magical place called "Petticoats and Parasols." "They will love it there" she said.

But some of her most special creations stayed home.

They stayed home so you could come and visit Lollishops.com too!

Some dollies are found there and some are found at another magical place called Etsy.com

Don't you want to come away with me to the land of Pink and Blue? I know you do!

My Wish List Gotta Lottery Ticket

Why are there so many things for me to buy? I have pondered this question. I have also wondered when someone will leave me a boat load of cold, hard cash so I can go on endless shopping sprees. I promise to invite you too!

Here is my first pick. This is a very colorful pin cushion, this designer sells fabric too! She also designs bags, bird hangers and more. Hum, I'm sure I could use just one more of these. Too cute!!!

Here's some adorable little creatures I've just gotta have, how about you?!? I'm digging in my wallet now!

Looking for that lottery ticket, got a good number anyone?

How about this adorable face, awh aint he sweet. I found some change in my wallet. How much did you say this little sweety was?

I didn't even know that I liked foxes. I do now. I have just the place for these darlings.

Sara Lechner created these, she is more of a fiber artist although she creates dollies too!

I'm not sure what this is really, but it is awsome and I gotta have her.

Well that is one of my wish lists. Maybe one day I will be able to buy all the wonderful creations that are out there, till then, I will be patient and tell my kids to get a job, mommy needs stuff now!!! LOL!

All the above mentioned are found at "The Paper Cake Finds" on my blog list to the right for viewing and purchase.

Hugs and Giggles...Cathy

Happy Easter


Prophesy: Isaiah 52:7 as a sheep before her shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth

Several thousand years later...

Mark 15:4 Pilate asked him, "arent you going to answer: See how many things they are accusing you of" But Jesus still made no reply and Pilate was amazed.

Prophesy: Isaiah 52:14 There were many who were appalled at him, his apprearance was so disfigured beyond that of any man and his form marred beyond human likeness.

several thousand years later...

Mark 14:64-65 They all condemned him as worthy of death, Then some began to spit at him; they blindfolded him, struck him with their fists, and said Prophesy! And the guards took him and beat him

Prophesy: Isaiah 53:9 He was assigned a grave with the wicked and with the rich in his death

Several thousand years later...

Luke: 23:32 Two other men, both criminals, were also led out with him to be executed

Matthew 27:57 As evening approached, there came a rich man from Arimathea named Joseph, who had himself become a disciple of Jesus. Going to Pilate he asked for Jesus' body and Pilated ordered that he be given to him.....placed it in him own new tomb

Prophesy: Isaiah 52:5 But he was pierced for our transgressions
Psalm 22:18 They divided my garments among them and cast lots for my clothing

several thousand years later...

Matthew 27:35 When they had crucified him, they divided his clothes by casting lots

Prophesy: Ps 22:14- I am poured out like water and all my bones are out of joint. My heart has turned to wax, it has melted away within me, 16: dogs have surrounded my, a band of evil men has encircled me, they have pierced my hands and my feet, 17:I can count all my bones; people star and gloat over me, 18:They divide my garments among them and cast lots for my clothing

Several thousand years later...

Mark 16: 4...But when they looked up, they saw that the stone which was very large, had been rolled away. As they entered the tomb they saw a young man dressed in white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed. Don't be alarmed, he said,. You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucifed. He has risen! He is not here.

Acts 4:12 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.

Happy Easter!
