Today I come to you with a heart full of gratitude.
Most of you by now have probably heard about the
recent break-in that happened in my family's home
and the theft of all our valuables.
Well some dear crafty friends came together and
held a card/donation drive called Operation Safe and Sound
on both the Lawnscaping Challenge blog and
A Blog Named Hero as well as many individual blogs.
The drive lasted all this past week, and all together
a total of $498.83 was raised for my family!
I was just completely blown away by the generosity
of these ladies who hosted the drive, and the people who
donated, wrote kind words of support, or sent up prayers.
I feel so honoed and blessed to be a part of such
a loving, giving, caring community of crafters and friends.
The money raised will go toward replacing my
beloved MacBook that was stolen
and I will cherish it all the more, knowing that
it was this wonderful group of women who enabled me
to repurchase the tools I needed to continue my love
of papercrafting and sharing blog posts and videos.
Heartfelt thanks goes out to all of you dear ones!
And an extra-special thanks goes out to Melissa Shea
and Laurel Beard for organizing the whole drive
and just being completely wonderful, lovely friends.
Much love to all!
Thanks so much for stopping by.
