Free bone marrow registry

This isn't the normal scrap-related post, but I think it's important enough to post about in the hopes it will touch someone's life....

Now, through Sept. 22nd, Nascar is paying the $52 registration fee to sign up to be a bone marrow donor. You can register at a track near you, or online. I just did it online. The site is secure and the questions are basically what you'd be asked when donating blood, so you do need to be in relatively good health. Then they send you a registration kit to take swabs from inside your cheek, that you'll send back in. It's such a worthy cause, I thought I'd pass it on.

I just registered online and hope you will, too.

Yay! Exciting news! I'm part of a new shop...

... well, new to me. is a lovely site with a focus on scrapping your testimony of Jesus Christ. The kits, LOs and topics are not all Christ-oriented, but it's a beautiful, friendly site and I'm enjoying it immensely.

I've put a few new things in both FaithSisters and DigitalFreebies, and a fun new kit that's out in FaithSisters and will be in DigitalFreebies on Tuesday. Wanna see? Of course you do!

A little boy who refused to grow up, a little girl willing to tell him fairytales and tuck him in at night, and the power of fairy dust and happy thoughts. My children and I are having such fun listening to the classic story as we jet around from lessons to practices and back again. Here's what's come of it...The Papers ... I normally put 12 papers in a kit, but I had so much fun with this I just kept going. And you know what, I even took some out and will probably make an add-on of them.

The coordinating alpha (included in the kit)
This is a fun little element pack with slightly crinkled paper arrows and journaling-on-path
Fun, little snippets of handmade paper to journal on, use for blocking or layering and just to add a little extra to your layouts!
