Prayers and Good Thoughts Needed

Could you all do me a huge favor?  Yesterday I got a text from one of my old co-workers at Caribou, Heidi Jo, telling me that another old co-worker, Elizabeth, was in a car accident.  Elizabeth survived and from what Heidi told me she has 5 broken ribs and a bad concussion.  Elizabeth was driving and her friend Anna, who was a passenger, died.  I found a news story about it here.  Anyway, if you all could please keep Elizabeth, her family and her friend Anna's family in your thoughts and prayers I would really, really appreciate it.

Elizabeth and me - fall 2008

I'm kind of freaked out right now.  First Jake, who also worked at Caribou, and now Elizabeth.  I hope Jake was looking out for Elizabeth and maybe that's why she'll walk away from this okay.  I can imagine, though, that losing a friend will not be at all easy for her.  I know everyone involved are going to be in my thoughts.

Before I go, I do have a giveaway winner to announce.  I used to pick a winner of The Little Illustrator giveaway and the lucky winner is...

Congrats lady!  Shoot me an email and I'll let you know how to collect your goodies.

Lisa from Lisa's Yarns

Oh my gosh, that is so awful. I will pray for her recovery - both physically and mentally... I think the mental battle will be the worst of the two... Dealing w/ the grief and survivor guilty would be so tough. What an awful thing to go through. :(


Sometimes we just need to know that people care.
If this is one of those times,
I'm one of those people!

Much Love xx
