More Flowers

Here's a look at a few of my latest masterpieces.

This was a glass cube arrangement I did. I think it's my favorite one so far. It contains 2 roses, several carnations, different colored daisymums, a gerber daisy, solidago, pittosporum, hypericum berries, and alstroemeria. Don't I sound so smart?! :)

These are the boutonnieres that I made. For extra credit we were told we could give them to people and write a little response about how they were treated differently by others because they were wearing flowers. I gave them to four of the women that I work with. They were excited to wear them, and it was fun to see how happy they were because of it. I love flowers!

One Year Ago...

I had a lump the size of a golf ball attached to my thyroid (my surgery was actually the beginning of May, so it's been a little more than a year). One of my biggest fears about the surgery was the scar it would leave (shallow, I know...).

And so, after one year and use of Mederma every now and then, you can hardly see the scar at all. At least not in the picture. I still catch people staring at my neck sometimes. When I went to the dentist in April he asked me if I'd had a tracheotomy...what can you do?
