Sappy Sunday


Hi friends....
Today is officially my Sappy Sunday. I occasionally have
a girly moment where I really would like to lock myself in the bathroom with 
a Pepsi and a hot bubble bath, and cry myself to sleep (most of the time that room is the 
only room in the house that no one else comes in while I'm in there,lol)

Little story (if you're not interested, just skip this part).
My oldest brother lost his wife to brain cancer about 16 years ago. She was one 
of the kindest, most soft spoken, loving people I have ever known. Corinne taught 
me so much about grace and acceptance. I miss her! Today I miss her a lot for some reason.
Anyway, she loved dolls. After she passed away, we all got to choose one of her dolls
to keep. One of my most loved treasures by the way. 

Anywho, in memory of "Auntie C", I am going to start a new series tomorrow.
Corinne's Raggie Babies:)
Remember!!!!! Each image is posted for ONE DAY only!!!
If you miss one you can buy the bundle after I'm done with the series.

So far, they're looking SUPER cute:)
I don't usually give a heads up when I start a series, but I needed to let you
know where this bundle came from.

I'm having a sappy day, too, although mine is probably a little bit more "woe is me" although I need to snap out of it. Cancer is an awful thing! I think that's awesome that you are doing something in her memory. Saying a prayer for you right now!

Nikki,
What a beautiful and wonderful way to honour your sister in law. I can't wait to see the Raggie Babies. I am so glad you shared the meaning behind the images--it always means so much more that way.

Also never worry about having sad moments or days. We are all human and all understand.

I hope your happy memories fight to the surface and help bring you back to your happy place.

Oh Nikki, Thank-you so much for telling the store behind your upcoming series and I'm so sorry that you lost such a beautiful family member.
It doesn't matter how long ago it was...they will always be missed.
I'm thinking of you today and always and am grateful for all you do!
Take Care!
