Many Thanks

Well this has not been a very easy week for those of you that know me well,with My sons Health issues and his ever changing operation date,it has reduced me to days of crying but still no end in site.We have been waiting since october last year,and with Private health insurance
I just want to thank you those have been there for me ,with a friendly ear,you know who you are and you are my strength.I will still fight on it is not over yet.
Enough doom and gloom from me.

These are the frames I have designed and were surposed to bring down to the art retreat to sell ,imagine my disappointment when I had left them home :{ I was not Happy Jan.
So here they are there are 8 in a pkt and they are $9 dollars if your interested plus postage .
You can email me at

These are what you can do with the frames , cover the chipboard with paper and age them make then into a book.

Below are some wonderful gifts I have received from the retreat from good friends and some I received in the mail this week.I think the book Spirit by the lovely Julie H as really helped this week
Thanks again

Eva said...

Keep smiling Jen ... life is full of 'challenges' and we, as mothers/daughters, pull through when the going gets tough. Though at times it may not appear so ... believe and stay strong.

Anyways ... use me for a good laugh - I'm OK with it ... 'special' me - eh!
