Hi there! I'm a 56 year old lady from Wisconsin. Currently, I'm battling Stage 4 Breast Cancer, which is terminal. I've been living with this disease for going on 3 years. I was recently told, I've already beat the odds. I want to blog so I can leave my story for those who want to read it. It also keeps my mind off of cancer. Since I'm no longer in the work force, I do make soy candles, natural body care products. Please email me if interested or take a look at Calming Scents on Facebook.
Wow! I cannot believe how long its been since I posted. Then I come here, and forgot how to post, took me forever to figure it out, redo email etc. I bet a lot of you thought I had passed on to the blue yonder. Well, I'm still here, still fighting. I'm going thru a rough patch right now, have been since about march. I'm heading into the 2 year mark of dealing with the beast.
I posted this old picture of my little white Kia,because I don't have anything new downloaded AND simply because I miss this car! I miss it a lot. I miss a lot of things. Cancer robs you of a lot. I try to focus on the blessings and there are many. BUT....I'm tired, I'm trying to keep the hope alive. I have to tell you, that is not easy to do when you see so much death and suffering.
I cant promise I will get back to blogging. I do facebook but I don't even do that as often as I used to. I'm trying to find the energy to get back to making my candles and body care products AND figure out how to make attractive labels. That is the one thing that eludes me, labels!!!!!
I'm enjoying summer, I love it. I love being able to be outside. Much easier on a patient the being cooped up inside. I've done nothing with decorating my home because I've had no energy...well. not true. My husband did redo our main bathroom which was disgusting and is now spa quality! Hopefully I will get back to figuring out how to download pictures and get back here. What I miss the most, is recipes. I need new ideas as my taste buds are so different. I will get out and visit some blogs now!
These are wonderful. Made with a special wax that's moisturizing for your skin and other wonderful ingrediants to enhance the massage experience. You will feel like your in heaven after this, not greasy, not messy...very moisturizing.
I make 100% soy candles in my home. Please consider purchasing your need for candles from me! My prices are very reasonable. I'm no longer in the work force as my stage 4 cancer keeps me home. During the months of August, September, October, I carry my breast cancer candle. I donate a portion of these sales to assist others who battle cancer.
