Energy kit

It has been so great to get life back to normal since our baby's surgery. She has been seizure free for almost 4 weeks now. YEAH!

After our big roller coaster event I have been able to just sit and relax at home and just be with our kids. One thing I have noticed is that they are full of life and energy. It's fun to watch our 7 year old daughter do tricks on the trampoline. I love to watch our 5 year old daughter put on her ballet skirt and dance around the house. And our 2 year old son has energy CONSTANTLY. I could just sit and watch him all day and never get bored.

And finally, it is a MIRACLE to watch our 6 month-old Claire have energy. Her doctor told us that every time someone has one seizure, it takes their brain 24 hours to fully recover. We were seeing at least 3 a day which explains why she was so tired all the time. Now that she has been seizure free, she is full of ENERGY!!!This kit is a dedication to my children. As I was thinking about which colors I wanted to use, I decided to just throw together all of their favorite colors and try to make it work. (I know Claire's too young to have a favorite color, but her room is pink and brown so I threw those colors in there a little).

I hope you enjoy this kit!

What an adorable kit. I love how you draw your inspiration...it makes the kits that much more special. I hope the best for your little one. The fact that they can do surgery and stop seizures from happening anymore (in some cases) is definitely evidence of God's power.

I am so excited that Claire is doing so well. Sorry for the early riser. I lived near the maritime time zone when we lived in Northern Maine and the sun came up at 3 AM in the summer! Of course, it could be dark at 3 PM in December! Hopefully, Brock will sleep in tomorrow...
Thanks for the gorgeous kit - I still don't know how you get done all you do! Your gift is a blessing.

Great news about your daughter - I have a friend whose son is getting ready to undergo a brain re-section to hopefully cure his epilepsy, which has not responded to meds.

What a wonderful kit - I love the combination of all the colors.

2BaBrineyToes said...

I can't get part 1 of your beautiful "Energy" kit; only 2, 3, & 4. All I get is an Internet Explorer page that says I'm not connected, which isn't true. Is there some other way? I sent an email to you yesterday....

Thanks for whatever you can do, and best wishes for your baby's full recovery.

I hate to bother you since I'm sure you get several emails. HOwever, I wasn't able to download link 1. It said it was invalid. Just wondering if there is anyway to get the rest of the kit. Thanks for all you do. I LOVE your work!

Meli_Mama said...

I used your kit to create my first blogger background. It's still a work in progress as I'm trying to get it centered and zoomed in, but here is my site http://surprisemeacham.blogspot.com. I also plan on creating a header. I gave you credit for the kit at the bottom of the page. Is that alright? BTW I just love all of your kits they are so pretty! What an awesome gift you have.

Frangipani42 said...

I am new to your blog, but I really like all of your designs. Just a quick question though, Am I allowed to use these papers nd elements on backgrounds that I make for people? They will be free, and i will give you full credit.

frangipanibackgrounds.blogspot.com (I just created it BTW, and havent had time to properly design it)

I hope Claire gets better:)
