A call for help from Chicago

Never did I imagine I would post a request for help from the members of this blog for something so personal, but I must.  I think the universe has an unbelievable way of putting you in touch with people who need to be in your world at specific times.

Therefore, after seeing all the incredible work you all do, I hope you won't mind helping me out with this little request.

I want to introduce you all to a beautiful spirit named Elisa.

Besides scrapbooking, one of my other hobbies is Latin dancing (salsa, bachata, cha cha cha, etc), which is where I met Elisa.

A couple of weeks ago now, Elisa went into a coma unexpectedly from some serious health complications (as is always the case).  Knowing that there is nothing more that I can do for her health besides pray and support her loved ones, I am still left feeling pretty helpless.

So, rather than focusing on a larger sized crafting for a cause event (as I had planned for in the Spring), I asked the dance studio if they would be okay with me setting up a bin with homemade cards.  All proceeds from the cards sold would go directly to the family to at least help cover some of the medical bills.

And so, I have a call out to help me keep the bin full!

What kinds of cards can you make to donate:
- Christmas
- Kwanzaa
- Hanukkah
- New Year's
- Valentine's Day
- Birthday
- Thank You
- Get well cards (left blank on the inside)....people will then also be left with the option of addressing that card to Elisa so that we can deliver them to her at a later time.

The possibilities are endless.....just create!

I would be humbled and very appreciative of your support!

Please email me at if you are interested in sending out a card or two.  I will gladly shoot over my home address.  

If you don't have matching envelopes...I will take care of that.  Just please make sure no card is larger than 5x7 inches.

And if anything, some prayers would also be welcome.

Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!
