As many of you know, we recently lost a loved one back in October. His name was George. He was a wonderful father, of 5, husband and a great friend! I am best friends with his wife and I am quite close to a couple of his children. George was the sole provider for his family and his wife is having a hard time getting a job. This will be the hardest, both financially and emotionally, Christmas for his wife and children.

Therefore, I am asking for any and all help I can get from you wonder people in CRAFTSTERland. I am going to donate every penny I make (until christmas) to help give her family the best christmas they could have. I am also willing and would love any handmade items for any of them. You can pm me for any details. Thank you for all your help.


You can read some many wonderful things about him here.


go to obituaries

go to view previous obituaries

click on his name

you can also read his tribut book by clicking on sign tribute book. Many of his patients, he was a nurse, left wonderful comments about him.

Just a little fyi.

Josh is 6, Jordan is 9 and special needs, she loves all things girlie and princess like. LOL Rachel is 14. I really don't have much contact with the rest of his kids, they are 15, 16 and step daughter 21.

I think you're not getting a lot of responses because people maybe aren't quite understanding what you're looking for. Are you raising money for the family through your Etsy site, or are you collecting Christmas gifts for them, or are you asking other Craftsters to sell some of their items to try to raise money for them?

If you can clarify exactly what it is we can do to help, I think you may find you get a little bit better response.

In the meantime, they'll certainly be in my thoughts and prayers ... and just one more reminder of why I try to be very conscious of motorcyclists when I'm driving.
