*when a friend asks for some hope...you make sure they get it* :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Hi all.......

My dear friend Sherry has been sick for months, the doctors kept her home bound for months and now she is on a no-talking order from the doctor to rest her vocal chords from all the coughing...and Sherry lives in Phoenix like me...and let me tell you, our air quality here is terrible....with living in a desert, you get dust, and no wind, so the pollution just sits on top of you, all the time....in fact I was telling Nikki Sivils once that our county actually sends out warnings to people here when the air quality is at its worse so that people with bad asthma and allergies and children to stay indoors to not have the bad air quality affect them in a negative way....sooooooooo my poor dear Sherry has been affected by all of this on top of being sick....and last night on her blog...she asked her friends for HOPE. I am sure after being home bound, and not being able to talk (you all know that would KILL me, right?? lol!)... has worn her patience thin...so HOPE is what she needs...and so tonight...I made her something that hopefully will give her that HOPE she has asked for........Sherry...I will have this off in the mail to you this week...and I HOPE you like it...you are such an amazing and BEAUTIFUL woman...and I am BEYOND honored that I know you...love you dear sweet Sherry... :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

The quote reads..."Hope is putting faith to work when doubting would be easier" :):):):):):):):):):):)

(Sorry for the shadowy photos...the sun was setting when I was taking these...)













A lot of the goodies on here are from my sweetest Diana's ETSY shop! :):):):):):):):):):):)

And I also wanted to share that ScrapbookCircle.com's August kit is now AVAILABLE!! WOOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOO!! I will be sharing my creations SOON! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Thanks for stopping by... I truly appreciate it! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  1. Julie that is so sweet! I read that and am almost in tears. Sherry...you are in my thoughts and prayers.....and I am telepathically sending you hugs and hope :)

    Our weather is pretty crappy in East Tn too......don't get me wrong...it's BEAUTIFUL here, but I read a study of some sort this year calling our area one of the worst to live in for people with breathing difficulties due to all of the allergans. And I HATE humidity!!!!! LOL

  4. My Dear Precious Julie...
    Oh Sweetie, I write this through tear stained eyes as I type. You have given me the most beautiful HOPE I have seen. Thank you from the very bottom of my heart.

    I will be hanging it right by my bed, so it is the last thing I see when I close my eyes at night, and the first thing to greet me when I get up each morning.

    I am sending you the BIGGEST HUG ever. I can't wait until I can come out and play. My Nikki stuff will be on it's way, and then you have a lot of teaching to do sweetie. A LOT...

    I love you girl. Many, many hugs and so much love, Sherry

  39. What a wonderful gift for your wonderful friend! It's beautiful. :) We have those air quality days here sometimes, not too often, mostly when it's real humid and the clouds are low and no air is blowing. My son has asthma so we know how that goes. He has to use his "puffer" on those days. Hope all is well with your family. I just finally had a few minutes to visit you today. Take care!! Hugs, hugs, Chris :)
