some happy mail, and some much needed happy mail ...

the happy mail
I was thrilled to find this beautiful beaded bracelet in my mail box this morning ... this is a wonderful door prize that I was lucky enough to win from Maureen of Mrs. Beadsley of Maine during OWOH!  I know, how lucky am I!!!

I love the red seed beads and the beautiful clasps and findings ... don'tcha just love the heart shaped lock!
Thank you so much Maureen ... now off to find a spot to hide it from my daughter ... who is just itching to get her fingers on it!

told ya, honey gets into almost every shot ... she just wants to be the centre of attention!

the much needed happy mail.
I met Betty of Daydream'n World through Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-thursday meme ... Betty is a wonderful woman ... her Reid has been battling Hodgkins Lymphoma  for a several years now ... he is finally scheduled to for a stem cell transplant on March 11 ... It would be so wonderful if he went into this procedure with his spirits as high as possible ... so lets make this happen ... I know that most of my blog buddies out there make wonderful cards ... so if you can spare the time, please send Reid a card in the next couple of days ... you all know the difference a card can make in someone's day ...


Reid Martin

happy mail for you
and if you do send a card, leave a comment here and i will draw for a little RAK on the 15th of March ... you might get some happy mail coming your way ...

Peace love & paper

Lucky girl you are! Bet your wrist is going to look real pretty with that beautiful bracelet on it.

I'll be sending Reid a card too. Going through a loved one's battle with cancer myself I know how important those little things like a card are in giving one hope and how they can brighten your day.

I just read your post about Reid. His room setting looks awfully familiar to me ... two years ago, my mom had been staying in a room similar to this one for a month before she went to another world ... it's good that Reid has a chance for a stem cell transplant ... my mom was too weak to have one ... really hope Reid will go through it and have many years to enjoy life!
hugs, Yolanda
