Crochet Face Scrubbies and A Clay Mask Experiment

I recently made these face scrubbies- free crochet pattern here, courtesy of the Stitchin Mommy.  So easy and fun to make!

Then I came across this clay mask recipe using Bentonite clay and I thought these two would go so well together! So I whipped up some mask and got ready for a mini-spa treatment.  Fun stuff- except the mask kinda burned my skin, so beware.  It's supposed to "tingle" or so it says on the bottle of clay I have.

Photos of the Week

It's been another big week of change.  Which can be scary, but also good. 

 I turned 31, had fun celebrating with my family, and made some major health decisions.  After visiting my doc and finding out that I may have Adenomyosis in addition to Endometriosis, I'm pretty sure that hystorectomy is my best option. I need to be healthy.  I need to be able to do normal things-like sign my kid up for soccer. I have never been able to make that kind of commitment with my health problems.  They have ruled my life.  It's time to change that.

I never imagined having a hystorectomy at such a young age.  I never imagined that I would have just one shot at bearing a child of my own.  That I would only experience one pregnancy and one birth.  I will cherish that experience forever.  Morning sickness and all!  While I can't begin to describe the heartache that comes with the loss of fertility, I am certain that this is the way it is supposed to be.
