  4. Hi Marie~

    Wonderful finds! I absolutely love all of the wonderful paper projects. I really need some projects to keep my mind busy...we had to put our swI'm not sure sweet pup, Cole, to sleep on Tuesday, it was heartbreaking. I think it would be wonderful to do a few crafty things to keep my mind busy...I sure do miss my boy :0(

    Love you tons.

    Hugs and Love,

    1. Oh Barb, I am so very sad for you. It is such a heart rending time when we have to say farewell to our much beloved furry family members. (((((hugs)))) I read a talk by a BYU professor that said all dogs go to heaven, and right to the Celestial Kingdom, so your sweet little Cole is waiting there for you. I know the heartache only too well. Love and hugs to you always, and prayers too. xoxo
