Two Years ago on November 11, 2008, I had a benign tumor removed from my left temple. The side of my head swelled up and blood pooled into my left eye. I literally saw my vision change. I am now far sighted in my left eye.
Now, that may sound a little gross, and yes it was. But, I have made myself many eye glasses necklaces over the years. It is not unusual for me to forget that my reading glasses are around my neck, and run my errands with my glasses hanging in front of me. I made the necklaces, because I didn't want to look like the stereotypical librarian. You know what I mean, the one with her glasses hanging on a chain. These also work well with sunglasses.
So, in commemoration of this life changing event, why not have a giveaway. It is not your traditional giveaway, but I wanted to celebrate the fact that it was benign and not malignant.
You may be wondering about the picture on the top of the blog, yes those are my reading glasses. With the correction in one eye only. The bookmark is of my kids. I am not a scrapbooker, but I do take my kids pictures each year and make a new bookmark. I make copies and laminate them and put the originals in my cedar chest. Just one of those random quirky facts about me.
