Paperthreads Customer Appreciation Day

It’s that time of year again!  Can you believe it?

Paperthreads Customer Appreciation Day! It’s time to show you that we appreciate all of your support.  And I have so much to be thankful for from the outpouring of love that I have received from this community!  I just couldn’t let this day go bye with out joining in on your special day!

I am at awe with the with the response I have received form the moment my husband was diagnosed with small cell cancer.  First of all from Michelle Hessler, owner of Paperthreads who acted so quickly when she heard the news to calling upon the designers to put together a fundraiser for our family. The Vacation and Getaway package helped our family make our mortgage for three months as we waited for disability benefits to kick in.
It raised over three thousand dollars which allowed me to focus on the needs of Scott and my family rather then to worry about some of our bills.  From November to December we had some relief after the MRI showed that tumors where gone. 
In January as I was preparing for my turn to host the membership club a new scan showed numerous tumors in Scott’s brain and spin. As I shared the latest news with Michelle she once again pulled together the designers of Paperthreads and began the Scrapbook Cards and More Quarterly Club Membership to benefit our family with love from designer friends of Carrie Schwartz.  The support once again is tremendous just knowing so many care gives us much comfort. 

As I heard plans being made for CAD I just had to find the time to show my appreciation to all of you who have supported us here at Paperthreads and for  those who have showed their support by purchasing and donating to help our family in this difficult time that we are facing. It’s your day! I hope you  enjoy the sales, challenges and free files.

Friends Mini-Album

Inspired by the outpouring love from friends, I designed this little mini-album. Most of the pages and albums that I have created are from my family. Well this year with the reuniting of so many high school friends, the caring friends from Paperthreads I thought it would be perfect to make a special album about them. Fill it with pictures, quotes and saying from those friends who are so near and dear to you.  Add some fibers, ribbons and you will have your very own special memory book.  EnJoY!

awe you ladies are all so sweet! Scott continues to have good days and bad, he is tired today but he wants to fight this as much as he can. Next week we go back through chemo treatments, in hopes that they will shrink the tumors. God bless you.
