It's Ornamental

I made it! 

Today's Advent Calendar brings you a big pack of Christmas Ball Patterns. As usual, it started out simple and then began snowballing. One little Christmas ornament soon turned into a massive pack of patterns, papers and overlays. But I guess you don't mind, right?

Here is what started it all:

A simple little ball from The Graphics Fairy. It soon turned into today's freebie containing patterns in 6 colours, 3 sizes and files in both PAT (patterns for PS/PSE), PNG (overlays) and JPG (example papers with white background). Furthermore, I have included the PATs as both individual colours and one containing all patterns in one.

Here is the result:

I want to end this post on a more personal note. Some of you have asked questions about the MRI scan I so casually mentioned yesterday, so let me explain:

About a month ago I was diagnosed with MS (Multiple Sclerosis) and that may scare the bejeezus out of anyone. But the fact is that I have been undiagnosed for the last 15 years with LOTS of visits to any specialist you can think of without any clear results, so it was actually a release to finally get a place to hang my hat. The state of my illness is on the mild side so I'm not suffering much from it and as I can now get treated, there is hope for no further development. On top of that, I was lucky enough to be selected to participate in a very promising research program for a new medicine and that is why I now have to go for MRI of my brain every 4 weeks. 

I hope that cleared things up - and in case you are wondering: The scan showed clear signs of life in my brain ;0)

See you tomorrow for the next Advent Calendar opening. Before you start playing around with today's material I want to reveal that tomorrow I will bring you the glitter versions. Don't tell anyone, OK?

I was browsing your scrapbook freebies and downloaded the adult back to school kit. Thank you! I was back in school, online courses mostly, and now I’ll return when I can find a job so I can afford it again!

I started doing some more reading when you mentioned having MS; I wondered when you were diagnosed and what type of it you have. I have Primary Progressive with the first symptom in 1996, diagnosed in June 2011. The symptoms can creep up and they can separately be for anything! It’s no wonder we both lived with it for so long before diagnosis. If you don’t mind sharing, email is fine, what medication were you trying in December and what level of success did you have?

I look forward to sharing information with you.
