Cards for a young girl- URGENT!!

If you're reading this post I have a huge favor to ask-as we know in this blogging community, there's nothing like a small card to brighten someone's day. We all have stashes of paper, glue, buttons, etc. and all of us have scraps laying about. Today I'm asking that you take 10 minutes of your time and make/send a card to a young girl whose parents just found out she has a brain tumor. This is not a family I know closely, but her father was taking part today in an activity to introduce children to the art of music and my son got to be one of the performers. We all know when someone cheers for our kids-whether it be at a recital, play, concert, whatever, our hearts swell up with joy at the excitement that someone else cares. Well, in this case, there's a young girl whose family needs cheering and support at a time when uncertainty is all they know. Please consider sending a card of encouragement at a time when they really need it. The address is :

Elizabeth Abbott Spencer
c/o Jim Spencer
p.o. box 1095
Pittsford N.Y. 14534

If you send a card, please e-mail me @  It would mean the world to me to know you've taken the time to care. God Bless-Raquel
*** Update: I was told the little girl is 8 years old. Thank you all for asking and offering to help!


  1. Oh, I hate hearing of these situations. I will send a card and email you to confirm it's sent. How old is she?

  2. Absolutely will send a card. How old is she?

  3. Of course, I will send a card, then let you know. I hate that these poor children and their families have to go through something like this. I will keep them in my prayers as well.


  4. On it!!! Putting it in the mail tomorrow!

  5. Sent a card out today with best wishes to the family

  6. Sent a card today. I will continue to keep this family in our prayers.

Cricut Explore Air 2 Dreamcatcher Tutorial

Thank  you for joining me!
Today I was inspired to create a Dream catcher with existing shapes using my Cricut Explore Air 2. This was brought about after a Facebook post that got me thinking..."I can do that!"
I hope that you are also inspired to create your own. I have made a 2-part video series to show you how you can easily make your own version of dies that you love, but might not be easily accessible, or if you're anything like me, you want to be resourceful!
