Sometimes Real Life just isn't nice...

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Mine was very quiet and nice although there was a dark cloud hanging over us.

My aunt fell on Monday and sustained a very bad head injury. This was the second time in 4 years that she had a severe brain injury and that along with her age and failing heart was just too much for her to overcome and she passed away today. I am not sure what the next week or so will bring since she is to be buried in Kansas. Although I would like to be there, I am not sure that a trip right now is something that is possible. In any event between this and still not feeling well with my back. I think I am going to take a break for a bit. Not too long, I will be back in December but for right now with all that is going on and trying to help my Mom through this and my kids who are taking it hard, my priorities are my family. I am sure that you will all understand and I thank you for that.

I am posting the last November kit tonight and I really hope you all like it. We have only had one little snow flurry here but I am sure more are coming! So here is Flurries and Flakes...enjoy!

My heart goes out to you. It is so hard to lose someone, but when we do, we need to think of the loved one. She is no longer in pain. This comes from someone that is still having crying jags 4 years since I lost my Mom... I know she is better... I cry for me.. and you.. you still give us a lovely kit. Thank you
