Locks of Love!

I just wanted to share with you what I did yesterday (Friday)!
Went and had the hair all cut off to donate to Locks of Love so that Cancer patients can have real hair wigs created for them!

I did this to honor my friend Sally, in the hopes that her cancer is still in remission. God Bless you darlin and I am praying for you.

The cut was free because of it being for LLL! But I did give the sylist a good tip and still spent $10. on a hair care product, so the salon still made a little $$$ from it.

This first picture is how long it was before it was cut.

This one is the hair that was cut off! They took 10-1/2 inches!And below, you can see the final result. Oh.....look at the Gray! Won't be there long though!
I really am glad to have it short. My hospital stay a couple of months ago made it really aggrevating to have and my hair grows so fast that it will be back in no time at all. I did this 3 years ago and they took 12 inches and left about an inch and a half left on my head. So you can see how fast it grows. I average about 4 inches a year. That is a lot of growth!
Thanks for stopping by! Hugs Lori

Had to share this great gift!

I had a swap on my group called "Mystery Scavenger Hunt Christmas Swap. I have run this swap numerous times and it is a loved and very successful swap! The way the swap runs is that once sign ups are complete, each week I call out 5 items and the players are to pick one of the 5 and place it in a box. At this time they have no idea who they will send to. I give them their MSH at the end of the swap. The MSH has no idea who sends to them until the package is delivered. It is such a fun swap, but since I am running it, I can't play (no secrets for me! (LOL)
List Mom's out there feel free to use the concept and if you need more info just send me a post!

Anyway, as a thank from one of the members "Jackie" who played she made and sent me these great note cards!

Here are 2 pictures...please forgive my crummy editing. Still need some practice here!

This one below is more of a close up! She also made me envelopes! Aren't they great!Jackie made this with her Justrite Stamper Monagram set (sorry, don't have the link off hand). I really want this set now! What a fabulous gift! I probably won't have the heart to ever give them to anyone! Thank you so much Jackie!
