no more chemo - let's celebrate with a giveaway!!!

beautiful Audrey, age six

***This giveaway is now CLOSED. Thanks so much for entering!!****

Our sweet little friend Audrey is now six years old and is in the first grade. Sounds pretty normal, until I add the fact that she has just finished TWO YEARS of treatment for leukemia! She has a clean bill of health now. I can hardly believe that it's finally over. I'll never forget when my mom called me on the phone back in July 2008 with the news that Audrey had been diagnosed with leukemia. Our hearts broke. Audrey is one of my daughter's good friends, and Audrey's mom is one of my very good friends. I felt like I had been punched in the stomach. At the time, it seemed that October 1, 2010, would NEVER get here. The end of her treatment felt so far away. But now, thanks to the thousands of prayers to a faithful God, and the capable, loving hands at Doernbecher Children's Hospital, she has completed her treatment. WOW!!

And YAY for being cancer-free!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Love you, Audrey!!!! <3


  1. This is such a wonderful message to read.
    Yeah for Audrey and her family, it must have been a very tough couple of years for them all.
    They are lucky to have the love of friends like you around them, no doubt this has brought them lots of strength.

    Thank you for the chance to enter your gorgeous giveaway, your work is beautiful and it would be a real thrill to own some of your stationary.
    If I win I will choose, contemporary cluster or elegant scrolls.

    Here's to healthy, happy days!

  2. I'd choose the three wildflowers for both myself and my friend as it reminds me f when were children and used to go picking for wildflowers and would spend hours out enjoying all different ones that were around!!- Corinne corinne_akhurst@yahoo.com.au

  3. Yay! Cancer free! :-)

    I love the 3 flower cards in green for myself and the 3 flower cards in orange for a friend.

  4. First of all, YAY!!! My hasband has been cancer free for 5 years now and we count our blessings every day!!

    I love the Elegant Scrolls card! :)

  5. I posted this on facebook! :)


    We love you Audrey! <3

  6. How great!...and what an amazing answer to prayer for their family!

  7. You are the sweetest friend ever! Thanks for doing this! Ok, so while I am at it I like the roses or modern flower for me and the "happy" for a friend . . . or the other way around! I like them all, but I like you the best!!!!
    Love you!

  8. I would have to say the Iris Cluster for my beautiful friend Victoria and the Elegant Scrolls pour moi.

    Yay for your wee friend, cancer free. Blessings to her and her family as they move into a healthy and happy time.

  9. I would definitely get the contemporary cluster for myself and the three flowers for my friend. They are all so beautiful it is hard to decide!

    Many blessings to Miss Audrey! God bless.

  10. These are wonderful.
    I like the Contemporary Cluster for my self and the Iris for my mother. My mother loves Irises and well she has been a great help for me this summer during some stressful times.

  11. What a hard choice!!!

    I would choose the Iris cluster for myself (in a robin's egg blue if possible) and the 3 flower cluster (in red) for my friend Melissa (who's son just had his first clean scan after fighting cancer for 2 years and who had a relapse after his first round of chemo).

    Your work is so beautiful!

  12. Yay for Audrey being cancer free!!!
    I really like the black custom scrolls and the dusty orange modern flower notecards. Great work!
