Open for Business.

First Some very Exciting News - Paperedthoughts @ Etsy Has gone Live! - So Race over & have a look!  I Would be so Grateful for any feedback/suggestions as well!

In other news, I am Back from NZ & Have gotten right back into my crafting & Letter writing (Oh How I've missed it) The first Order of Business was fashioning a rather spectacular (if I do say so myself) Fairy wand for a very special Little girl - Eva Mitchell.
While in NZ I watched a current Affairs program called 20/20 - The story was about a little (and absolutely beautiful) 4 year old girl, who had lived her entire life in Auckland Starship hospital as she was born without vital organs.. As heartbreaking as it sounds - It almost wasn't.. This little girl is so loved by her family & Extended family of nurses & doctors, She has so much fight & Hope its contagious! So I decided to send a little bit more sunshine her way!
