My favorite, and only, Father-in-Law had knee replacement surgery last month. He ended up getting a nasty infection and 6 weeks later they still do not know what it is, but he is still fighting it. He loves getting cards so I had to make him one to remind him that we are praying for a fast recovery. I bought this set just for the reason of Get Well cards. I want them happy and cheerful and I thought the kites did just that.

I try to buy only what I love from the Mini catalogs and try to hold off to see if they make it in to the big catalog. That way, as a demonstrator, I get more use of of the product. I only keep current merchandise. So if you are looking for anything retired please check out my store. I have many, many things for sale! This mini (good through April 30th) I was not so good at holding back. Even though I knew how little stamp time I would get due to my busy schedule with doctor appointments and the children's sports February through June I just had to make sure some of the merchandise was there for me when I did get a short break. One of the sets I just HAD to have was the Your'e My Type. It has so many possibilities for designs. It is so easy to cut out and looks great embossed. I also HAD to have the new Framelits. I cannot wait to play with them more and show you a great way to store them that makes them easy to use and keep.

Since my Mother's heritage book was so full of censuses and immigration information I thought it fitting to include a 2 page spread on Ellis Island, where some of her family came through. It was very interesting to study and learn about. It was fun to see the pictures and imagine your ancestors waiting in line to enter their new country.
