Spread the Love Blog Hop

This is a VERY special post, PLEASE read fully.

Background info:

"On October 4th, 4 teenagers armed with knives broke into a home in a small town in New Hampshire. Alone and sleeping inside were a mother and 11 year old daughter. These 4 boys broke into this home with the intent to rob and kill anyone inside. They stabbed the mother, Kimberly Cates, to death and left her daughter, Jaimie, for dead in their driveway. It was a completely random act, their home was chosen only due to its secluded surroundings."

My husband read this story in our local paper and when he told me about it, it broke my heart. As soon as my mom told me about this blog hop, I knoew I had to do it and make sure Jaimie and her father feels alot of love from our crafty commumity.


If you did not come to my blog from the Wags n' Whiskers Challenge blog, please start at the beginning of this blog hop at Katharina Fei's Blog .

Next spot is Shannon's Blog
