Surgery and more...

Pin It

It's been too long since I have posted, but I had knee surgery last Tuesday and was told I will be off limits for 6 months-but don't count on it. I plan on celebrating world Scrapbook weekend this Friday and Saturday and even doing a class- for those interested in joining email me at for more information.

In the meantime, I wanted to share a couple of "drawings" I did in honor of EDS:

This octopus is the way I think of EDS. Like octopus', EDS is very squishy and bendable and comes with many other problems that I put onto the arms

These images are available to purchase on shirts, mugs and many other items in my Cafe Press Store. I do not make a lot on proceeds, more to just get the word out on the disorder. 

I love his pic of Stryder, it shows his long eyelashes-
His chest is tarting to sink in, too. This picture doesn't show it too well, but you can still see. It feels like his body just can't hold itself together.

Please stay tuned, I have more drawings I will be doing for some digital stamps and also some other things up my sleeve, as soon as my knee allows me to sit at my computer for any length of time.

Love with CTMH and two others....

Pin It
I LOVE this stamp and can't get enough of it.

The house is sick, so I won't get into too much about it- please ask if you have any questions...
All products can be purchased at my CTMH site (

The next card I did was a "copy" of the current Spring/Summer Idea book-
I wanted to show the versatility of CTMH products. It looks pretty similar but I made a 6X6 card instead of a layout.

The last card is a simple three toned card

I would have loved to enter a challenge with one or more of these, but I just didn't have time....

Pin It
I have a card I made (well, actually two) but my picture taking machine is broke so I have no way to take a picture and upload it. I do have my phone, but it just doesn't take good pictures...
So in place of pictures today, I am showing you a few videos that Stryder is in, some of them showing how EDS effects his life.

The first is a fundraising request that the Ronald McDonald House does every year. For the 2011 year, the Rochester Ronald McDonald House asked Stryder to be their season of giving ambassador. I got several emails from them and they said it made more money than any previous year.

This next is a video done while at the Ronald McDonald House for HP because they donated computers to all 42 rooms in the house. He had a hard time saying "Thanks HP"- it shows how far he has come in a short time. Prior to this video he could only say about 20 words, he was just shy of being 4.

Thank You HP from the Ronald McDonald House from Shawn Fagan on Vimeo.

This next video features several kids with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and how it can effect their life:

Okay, I'll stop bombarding you- you didn't come to this blog to watch endless videos of my son, so I promise as soon as my adapter comes in I will post my newest projects for you....
