Thank-you!

First, I want to thank all of you that sent your condolences and prayers for my aunt. I appreciated them so much and my heart and prayers go out to those of you who have also lost loved ones recently...so many of you, like me, will be missing someone this Holiday and that makes it hard when it is so fresh in your minds.

My aunt was a great lady and so much fun! She never had any children so she really enjoyed her nieces and nephews! And, since she really didn't have to suffer the aftermath...she let us get away with and helped us get into so much mischief! She would just have her fun with us and then she would go home and let our parents deal with it! Never anything real bad just kid stuff since I don't think she ever wanted to admit she had grown up! Until about 8 years ago, she was living in Colorado and we convinced her to move here with us so she would be around family since she was all alone out there so we really got to know her on a more "adult" level and I am so thankful for that. It is some comfort to know that if she had survived this head injury, she would not have had the quality of life she would have been able to enjoy so, I think, this was God's blessing to take her so fast and peacefully. The day she passed, we went to the hospital after we got the call and I was standing out in the hallway and this cute little "angel" came over to me and asked if I was okay and could she get anything for me. She told me that she was my aunt's nurse's aide that day and wanted to let me know that she was with my aunt when she passed. She told me how she was so peaceful and how she held her hand, and how, when she knew she was gone, made the sign of the cross over her and recited the 23rd psalm. She hoped that I wasn't upset with her for doing that not knowing if we were religious or not. This girl touched my heart so much with those simple little acts of kindness and that is what I will carry with me when I think about that day. My aunt was not alone...she had an angel by her side!

So, thank you all for your love and support, and your understanding that I needed some time away.

BUT! I am back! And I come bearing goodies! Since you all were so wonderful how about TWO kits today?

The first is called "Christmas Comes Softly" So many of the Christmas kits are the traditional red and green and bold and fun so I thought I would do something a little different. I did add a banner for "Baby's 1st Christmas" in this kit since it would be perfect for that being pastels and soft!
Members can download Christmas Comes Softly....HERE

The second one is called "GingerBread Love". I love gingerbread but do not have the patience to make Gingerbread men cookies. I don't care how easy Martha Stewart says it is to roll out cookies...mine ALWAYS stick and come out looking disfigured! So this way I can still have my Gingerbread men AND my sanity!

And for my non members.....to thank you for being readers even if you cannot be members, instead of samplers I have given you 2 Mini-Kits of these two kits....MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Non-Member Freebie Christmas MiniKits are....HERE



I will be posting a link for 2009 memberships in the next day or two so if you want to get the kits that have been given out since July, you still have a little time. Once the new links goes up, the old ones will come down since it will eliminate any confusion with clicking the wrong link.

So, what are you still doing here? Go! Download! Enjoy!

Thank you for the two absolutely gorgeous kits. I love the pastel Christmas colors, perfect for my friends new grandson, just born two weeks ago. Love Gingerbread too, but can't bake those little men either. Thanks again.

Thank you so much for the kits, I have been thinking of you and praying for you & your family. My youngest sister died 2 years ago the 18th. Remember that as long as we remember them, a part of them remains with us always. {{{Hugs}}}

Thanks for the great kits! I agree about the gingerbread men. I found a store here called "You Bake It". They sell all kinds of frozen cookies, sweet rolls, etc. All you do is pop them in the oven and bake! And they taste homemade!

We got the best of both worlds. One dainty & one darling! Thanks a bunch for both!
