Papercraft Star 78


Winter is the theme this week at Papercraft Star !!
The photo for us is ......

Gorgeous, huh !!  

The background paper is from theHouseAcrosstheBay, our weekly sponsor at Papercraft Star.

I am spending the week in downtown Portland, Oregon, while my husband undergoes surgery for Achalasia.  If you have never heard of that before, welcome to the club !  In Brazil it is a bit more common, as it is attributed to a parasite that lives in the walls of mud huts.  How he got it is extremely unclear.  He has a 50% chance of this surgery working, or else they will have to remove his esophagus.  Please send us your prayers and thoughts (good karma if you are a Eugenian) as he hopes to begin leading a normal life once again.
