Yes, this is a play on words (as you will find out)... If you know me personally, or if you have been reading my blog for a while, you know that back in January 2009 I was diagnosed with a "rare" (so they said, not so much it appears) kidney disorder/disease called Medullary sponge kidney (MSK). This basically means my body makes kidney stones all the time- I am fortunate in that I rarely, if ever, feel the stones. I have had to completely overhaul my diet as well as my activity in order to fight this and keep them from coming back and being larger than before (and I am okay with that- anything to avoid passing another stone-worst experience of my life!). Anyway, I wanted to showcase this a*muse|set in other ways- I wanted to show the versatility of it. Green is the color of the kidney disease ribbon (along with several other causes). I found a GREAT list that shows the causes with the colors here. I didn't have the kelly green- the closest I had was a*muse|studio's grass green so I went with it. And, if you haven't picked up on my play on words yet... rock is another name for... yep- stone. So, this is for all of the fellow kidney disease sufferers in the world- MSK is a hard one because according to doctors there should be no pain based on where the stones are located- well, I know what I felt and it was pain so... if you know anyone with MSK or another "silent" disease and they say they are hurting, trust them, believe them and most of all- support them!
Without further adieu here's my card and info. To find out how to get this set for only $3 you can go here and click on the Stamp out Breast Cancer link (and see- it works for other causes as well!) What a GREAT set!
