THE MISSION

Welcome Mothers, Fathers, Grandmothers, Grandfathers, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Friends and anyone else who needs an ear...Please come with an open heart.

This is a place for anyone who has felt the loss of a child. Treat this as a communication haven regardless of how or when you felt your loss. My definition of loss: miscarriage at any stage, still birth regardless of week gestation, infant death at any month, and loss of a child even if your child was all grown up. For me they all hold the same root of devestation. None are more profound or more "easily" dealt with than another.

Please cry if you need to.
Please connect with others who are in your same space.
Please email me if you feel led to
Please comment so we know what you need
Please tell your story

"If you aren't growing - you are dying" --January SSV Prize Pack Revealed!

I heard that quote at a seminar a few months ago. It is very open to interpretation, yet also a clear and finite statement.

I read it to mean, if the results of your actions were not what you expected, then shift your action and the outcome with reflect your growth.

Last month, we had a WINNER in the Share Southern Vermont Scrapbooking Raffle. As you might recall, I was overjoyed that she won, even if it was because she purchased the only ticket!
Obviously, that wasn't the goal. I didn't manage to get the word out effectively. So, I have sat with this and decided to make a few "tweaks".
  1. Tickets are now $5 instead of ten.

  2. Link to the blog using the slideshow or video walkthrough to earn a free ticket. (comment, then email me for the code)

  3. Write a post about SSV and the raffle and earn another free ticket.

Enter as many times as you like, and please...help me get the word out. I recall spending WAY too much money on scrapbook supplies. (I mean WAY too much! ...ok - I still do, a couple times a year) But enough about me and the ways I rationalize my hobby funds. For YOU to potentially win this fab prize pack for a mere $5 donation blows even MY mind! (Did I forget to mention these are ALL C.reat.ive Me.mem.ories products?)

Without further ado...
