Donations for Kari and her kids

I just wanted to thank you all so much for your wonderful donations for Kari and her family. My sister was able to bring the money over to her before Christmas (and for those wanting to know, at that time we were able to raise $1,950.) And there have still been more donations since then, so thank you. I will accept those until this Thursday, December 31st.

I just received an email from Kari last night and would like to share it with you:

"I really don't know what to say. I cannot find the words to describe how grateful I am for your post and all of the money that has been raised from it. Such a simple act has made a huge difference in my life and my childrens lives. The money will eventually be gone, but the kindness and generosity will always stay with me. I really do feel the prayers of everyone and they give me great comfort. Thank you so very much.


I also wanted to give a big thank you to a wonderful person named Sarah Quilter. Sarah is someone who I love to order necklace pendants from, and has always been so wonderful to work with. Well, for Christmas I had her create some pendants for a necklace for me as well as my mother-in-law and friend (which you can view further below). But what was so neat was that when I received my order, she had made this ornament for Kari and her family. I didn't ask her to do it, she just did it out of love and I wanted to thank her for that:

If you are interested in seeing the pendants she created for me, you can go here and scroll down to the third and fourth pictures:

I also had her create these to hang from my sister-in-law's wedding bouquet:

Anyways, she is so gifted, and if any of you are looking for a gift to give for someone you care about (including yourself!), then I suggest you go through Sarah. The prices are amazing and the quality can't be beat! Here are her two sites:

Thank you again everyone. You have been wonderful!
