After a really weird and scary week culminated by my son's ear operation to remove one of the grommets yesterday - he is doing fine, he woke up from the anaesthetic like he just woke up from the most invigorating nap he ever had!!! :-) - I find myself almost speechless for the generosity and wonderful words and prayers from the blogging and Etsy community. I've been trying to wreck my brains as to how I could possibly thank everyone.... so this is my feeble attempt because truthfully, no words could possibly ever convey how these people have lifted my spirits during this psycho week. Please go visit these people's blogs/shops. These are the creme de la creme of all that is good and wonderful about this wonderful virtual community, and please if I have forgotten anyone, forgive me! my head, although in a better place than it was a few days ago, is still very much sleep deprived.
Lets start of with the treasuries - only because they have expiry dates on them :-D:
