Wishing you all a Merry Christmas. I really want to thank you all for your patience this past few months while we spent time with family during my Sister-in-law LaVone's 8 month battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. She lost her fight last Thursday, December 19 around 3 o'clock in the afternoon at the age of 47. Christmas was her favorite time of year, I can only imagine the celebration it is in Heaven. She loved stamping and was also a Diva in my Diva & Dudes Stampers Community. This is one of my favorite pictures of her with my husband's youngest brother (Todd) at their son's wedding.
I learned so much from her in the past 8 months. Never once when we went to see her in the hospital did she ever complain no once. She always would say "I am Okay" "I'm Good". She received amazing care at Mayo Methodist Hospital with the finest team of doctors. Many said they were touched in a special way by her and that their lives will be enriched because they knew her. So while my love of stamping and time to stamp has had to take a back seat – again I want to thank you for your patience and I hope to be back on track this next week, starting tomorrow (Thursday) with Technique How To, Week 41 Faux Silk! You won't want to miss it. See you tomorrow.
