View Full Version : Hello from a mad Brazilian in London, UK

So, I finally made it here.....
Have been following the posts of one of *my girls* (jenevang in CT member of team I'm leader) and drooling all over the pages she posts...so now that I have money to buy LOL I decided to come out of lurking land...and here I am :)
I will try my best to be at the SS tonight, and, though I haven't got much time at the mo, will try find time to post and browse the galleries....

there are a lot of things I could write about me, but the two most important (and so I don't bore you) are that
1. I m not in very good health, I was born paralysed, didn't walk until aged 5, my parents had me in a crystal box (meaning I wasn't allowed PE in school, no dancing, no climbing stairs) until I saw Hair when I was 13 and managed to get them to invite me to be in the play.... I had 30+ years of performing, travel the world and then, when (as I knew I would need since I was 16) I had a hip replacement in 2003 things went totally wrong. I had 4 other operations which failed to fix the initial error, so I was left with a leg shorter than the other and 24/7 excrutiating pain, plus a few conditions arising from this all.

2. I am totally, completely addicted to digi scrapping, but need no cure for it LOL

I m looking forward to my shopping now!

Welcome to the GingerScraps, Cynthia! Sounds like you've overcome a lot in your life and had some great experiences along the way. Sorry to hear that your hip replacement left you with pain and more problems. I'm facing knee replacement surgery at some point because my right knee is in bad shape. It's slowed me down to a snails pace and over the past couple of months, I have developed pain 24/7 as well.

Hello Cynthia! Welcome to Gingerscraps! I hope you feel at home here :) So sorry to hear about your hip replacemet surgery and all of your troubles along with it :( I too have suffered personal problems and I have to say that digi scrapping has totally changed my life... I often refer to it as my drug since it has helped me out so much along the way! I hope you enjoy it here!
