happy friday!!!

well, it has been a week and i have been busy as i know that you have all been. i am currently working on Christmas, getting the house finished off on decorating, some gifts, scrapping, etc... you all know our routines!!

i have only done a couple of things that i can show as i have been working on cards for a charity that christa at the mosy scrapper selected. the name of the charity is 'make a child smile'. it is an organization for children with all types of illnesses, their stories and bios are available for each one. we were asked to make and write in cards for some of the children. well, it broke my heart...how could i choose 1, 3 or even 10 of the 38?? so i am currently writing in each of the cards as i have them all made. it just saddens me to read their stories (mostly from the mother's perspectives) as we have been blessed with three healthy children.

yes, i have so many things to do this month (as we all do!) but i believe that this is a very worthy cause and chose to do one for each of these precious children. so i will quickly finish this as the kiddos are fast asleep and i would like to knock off 10 or more notes in my cards...

i am continuing to be grateful, are you?? a few of the latest...
* an evening nap~i needed that!!
* the beautiful sunshine-y day!!
* time with caiti & taylor at michael's & starbuck's!!
* brunch date with denise & sonja~priceless!!

don't forget to write them down. if you didn't do this in 2008, why not consider it in 2009??

I love a little cat nap around 4:30 - 5, it revives me so I can craft all evening :-) and I'm thankful for that! Have a great weekend, love your pages!

Hi Lori!! You know, I'm not very good at cat naps. My husband on the other hand...is!
Love your work. The last layout you did for the contest is wonderful! I hope you had a great weekend!

Thank you for sharing all of your wonderful creations. I love what you have done and I always look forward to seeing what you come up with. I just wish I could have some mojo like you. I am so glad you had a wonderful visit with Denise and Sonja. I am still praying for her.
