BLESSINGS IN ABUNDANCE & THE BIG REVEAL OF NO BRACES!




















This month, I participated in a HOLIDAY GIFT EXCHANGE in the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Yahoo Group and my partner was Janette.

If you have never seen her work, you really MUST go to her blog -it is truly beautiful. She is new on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps DT.


I have participated in these swaps before and have been AMAZED and overwhelmed by the generosity and talent of these women!!! WOW!







In these photographs, I am showing to the best of my ability what was included and beautifully wrapped.




To see the TRUE beauty of these, you need to come over. LOL However, you could go look on Janette's blog for some close ups, but they really look even MORE beautiful in real life!









THANK YOU SO MUCH for your generosity Janette and for sharing your talent with us all!!!





I am blessed for so many reasons, but this package was FUN to open!


Now, 4 years and $8000- and 2 surgeries later Ariel has had her braces taken off. This before picture was taken RIGHT before she went to the orthodontist 2 weeks ago. She looks kind of sleepy in this picture.












Here she is all sassy on Thanksgiving after helping clean up the kitchen.



Have a great night! Thank you for stopping by!

Lucky girls! You received a great package of goodies and you and Ariel are glad the braces are off! I know how happy that makes her. Both my kids had them and then at age 42 I went through three years of them. Tell Ariel she looks great with that smile!
