A little glimpse

Hi everyone!!!  I hope that you all are having a great weekend.  I did something this week that I have wanted to do a very long time.  

Can you tell by this picture?

This week I got braces!!  

  When I first married  my husband I told him that I wanted braces and he said that when we have the insurance and the money to do it, I could get them.  Well we finally have good dental insurance and I'm going to work really hard on this craft blog so I can pay for them.  So I did it.  And I'm super excited about it!!  I'm going to have to get used to them and get used to how I look in them.  I'm going to have to figure out how to smile for a camera again too.

After talking to my friend Emily who worked in an orthodontist office, I decided to go with the Damon System, not the traditional braces.  They are a little more expensive but they work faster and you don't have to get them tightened, you just get a new thicker wire.  Plus, they widen the arch of your teeth, giving you a fuller smile.  I ended up getting the clear ones so they aren't as noticeable.

I can't wait to see the results in 18 months :)

One of my favorite things about living in Utah is all the amazing, talented and crafty women there are!!!  I'm in a creative group where we meet up once a month and just talk.  It's AWESOME!!  This week we went out to lunch.  I had to bring three of my kids with me but it was still so much fun to get to know these amazing women!

Congrats on your braces! I got mine when I was 34 and had them for 1.5 years. It was the best money I have every spent. I still can't stop smiling!
Good for you. Janelle

Congrats on the braces, I always wished I could get them myself so I am glad for you that you are doing it! I am sure you will be thrilled with the results. I wish I had a group of ladies here like you have there, it must be so much fun and so inspiring as well! I hope you are having a great weekend.
