My Stepmom's Famous!

This evening, I had Christmas with my stepmother, stepsister and brother-in-law. My gift from Eileen, my stepmother, was a complete shocker! She's a cover girl!!! Our local chapter of Meals on Wheels together with Season of Suppers (a pet food drive for pets in need) created a calendar with photographs of Meals on Wheels recipients and their pets. Eileen's picture appears on April's page and on the cover!! What a surprise and such a wonderful gift! She said it took her over 80 years but now she's famous! Here's the cover picture:

Here's info from the calendar:

"The Pet Food Drive was developed after discovering that many of MOWAA (Meals on Wheels) recipients who had pets were sharing their meals with their dog or cat because they couldn't afford to purchase pet food. All the proceeds from the calendar will go directly to local Meals on Wheels programs to develop or sustain pet food feeding programs."

All Banfield pet hospitals have been collecting donations and contributing to the Season of Suppers. They are selling the calendar on their website and PetSmart is selling the calendar in their stores nationwide. It's a great cause.

I'm so tickled for Eileen. She's so proud that she's a Cover Girl!!

Hope all of you are having a great holiday season. Make sure to check back next week for a Victorian New Year's kit!

Blessings to all of you and have a terrific weekend!

How fun for your stepmother. It's a great photo. I will have to look for the calendar and get one the next time I am in PetSmart.

I have enjoyed working with you this year and am looking forward to more fun designing with your wonderful creations in 2008.
