My shoot at Children's went very well yesterday and I enjoyed meeting another beautiful family. We have 7 new families since the sale so its really busy here as we try to get things organized and tidy again.

Before I move on please remember to use Goodsearch for your holiday shopping as we receive a kick back for every purchase if you designate Soulumination as your charity of choice. This week is the biggest online shopping time so please shop using Goodsearch, its simple and quick and has most all the stores, Amazon, EBay, Gap, Barnes and Noble, Origins, Banana Republic and on so forth.

Shirley has worked long hours on the books for 4 days and she will be back on Monday to start wrapping it all up. I sold one more wreath that I made from a beautiful windfall branch that I saw when running errands and have one more lovely one available is you still need a wreath. There are a few more bead dolls that friends are picking up soon so a few little sales are still happening and the totals keep climbing.

I want to thank Andrew for his marvelous card tricks at the sale. I met Andrew when he was little and its been my pleasure to photograph his every year since. My pal, Grant who made the pipe cleaner creations last year made three more spectacular critters this you for the raffle baskets. I so hope he will have time to be back with us next year.

I wanted to share the words from Elizabeth Edwards, may that wonderful woman rest in peace: ‎"If you know someone who has lost a child, and you're afraid to mention them because you think you might make them sad by reminding them that they died - you're not reminding them. They didn't forget they died. What you're reminding them of is that you remembered they lived, and that is a great gift." Elizabeth Edwards

As I type this the wind is sending out so many prayers from the flags in our courtyard. I am so happy to have them up again. I am sharing today photos of my new pals Ruby and Tanner, Sarah's new babies taken by Dawn Lucrisia. I got to meet them for the first time at the sale and I think they are spectacular. In love and peace, Lynette
