A Reminder for Everyone

My Post today is not artful,  
It's more of a Tribute than a blog post.   

My daughter made friends with a hairdresser she had found who was wonderful.   She often talked about her in a glowing way.  Not only was she a great hairdresser, she was a great friend, wife, mother and only 41 years old when she was found to have a rare cancer.

She was the sort of person that lit up a room and made people smile.  This gal fought a valiant fight and had every bit of faith and courage to beat this crappy disease.   She has two children and a husband who were in her background fighting with her.  Her hair salon had fundraisers and events to celebrate her successes.    She just got word there was a brand new treatment and they were going to start it soon.   

Monica Feltes French

Yesterday Monica found her peace.  No longer fighting.

I shared this for several reasons, to honor a wonderful woman, to get my sadness out, (she was my daughters age, also with 2 children)  but most importantly..............

Call them if far away,  DO NOT WAIT.

MAKE SURE TO GET REGULAR CHECKUPS and insist that your Doctor orders tests such as mammograms, colonoscopies and pap tests.    YOUNG or OLD.

Be well and be Happy, Jean

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
