OCTOBER TICKLE A TEAPOTTER CHALLENGE!


The Destination this week is each other! Once a month, we send our cards to each other! A little payback and reward to the teapotters for always sending their cards to the recipient of the Destination Station.

It is our goal to surprise each and every Teapotter that is participating in this monthly card swap by each of us sending a handmade card to another! You know, give em a little tickle! Ha! Tickle a Teapotter!

This week is Tickle a Teapotte Tuesday!

To accomplish that I have started this new thread Tickle a Teapotter ~ (WILHEMINA ANN WITCHYPOO HAS HALLOWEEN TREATS JUST FOR YOU!) in the Teapot Tuesday Challenge Forum. If you are participating in the card exchange please go to this thread and follow the instructions.

Important:
If you choose to participate, please mail your card shortly after you have received word (a pm) from me regarding who you are tickling! Everyone is excited and looking forward to getting their card! If for some reason you cannot get your card off in the mail or will be really late in sending it, please let me or the person you are tickling know.

When you receive your card from a Fellow Teapotter, please send a pm to that person so they know their card has been received! Just a little Teapot Tuesday Tickle a Teapotter Etiquette!

Heart MMTPT223 ~ DESTINATION STATION.

MMTPT223 ~ DESTINATION STATION

This week our destination is Winnipeg, MB Canada. If you would like a destination for your card, how about sending it to Bob? Bob was brought to our attention by his daughter, our fellow Teapotter, Charlene (crystaldolphins). Many of you are familiar with her gorgeous creations. Here is a link to her gallery, if you'd like to see her cards!

Charlene's father has had some health issues that required emergency surgery during the summer and under the care of specialists recently underwent an all-day, high risk surgery. Things went well and an update from Charlene is as follows, in her own words:

Dad had surgery on Oct. 16th and the doctor is very pleased. Although he has quite a recovery period ahead, they removed all of the cancer! He will be in the hospital probably until the first week of November as they have to ensure everything is working as it should. We are very thankful and so relieved that they did (and were able to do) the surgery. There were numerous ways this could have gone bad but it didn’t!

Get Well, Thinking of You cards are all appropriate! If you want to include my mom on the card, that would be fine! My mom is a HUGE, HUGE fan and supporter of our teaparties! The theme will work for both as well as the scripture.

Big hugs,
Charlene


Charlene's parents have been living in the city while he has been under the doctors care but they are always anxious to get back to the country. Bob loves being at their place in the country surrounded by birds, chipmunks, deer, rabbits.

He has a wonderful sense of humor! He is definitely not a ‘frilly’ guy so masculine cards would be ideal. They are Christian so any scripture would be appreciated. He also enjoys woodworking and amateur radio (ham radio) although hasn’t done much with either in awhile.

Here is the address:

Bob (and Carolyn) Mitchell
403 – 204 Burning Glass Rd.
Winnipeg, MB
R3X 0H2
Canada

Thank you from Fran, Charlene and Me!


Update from Charlene as of November 6th:

Dad was released more than a week early (he has been home since October 27th). I like to think it’s because he’s doing so well (but I do know it is also because they need the bed!) He is doing well though. He is dealing with an infection but has nursing care in every day to deal with that. They are in the city for the winter now so he is going to absolutely love these cards! He does not know they’re coming. My mom knows but may have forgotten the date and I’m not reminding her! My mom LOVES looking at all the beautiful cards of our oh-so-creative Teapotters! Big hugs again to everyone and thanks so much.

Charlene (crystaldolphins)

This week our destination is Welaka, Florida. If you would like a destination for your card this week, how about sending it to MaryLou? MaryLou was brought to our attention by fellow SCSer and Teapotter, Sonja (Soni B). MaryLou is the sister-in-law of Sonja and is struggling with multiple medical conditions. Due to her illnesses, she has difficulty breathing, walking, and unfortunately is in and out of hospitals quite often.

As the wife of a Minister (Sonja's brother), MaryLou has a strong faith, loves life, loves to listen to Gospel hymns, and loves teaching children about Jesus. She loves cook books, especially those from churches, she loves good Southern food, and colors in shades of blue and purple. Oh and one more very important thing!

She absolutely loves, loves, loves teddy bears!

MaryLou has always loved to get hand-made cards from Sonja and will so enjoy the happy mail about to come her way from the Teapotters!

Here is the address:

MaryLou Williams
P.O. Box 100
Welaka , Florida 32193

Thank you from Sonja, Marie and Me!

MMTPT225 ~ DESTINATION STATION

This week our destination is Meadowbrook, PA. If you would like a destination for your card this week, how about sending it to George? George was brought to our attention by fellow Teapotter Fran (philsmom). Some of you may know that Fran is an avid owner and breeder of Jack Russells. Fran's friend, George is also a Jack Russell owner and a breeder. He has also battled cancer and was given the all clear last year. However, upon reexamination in October of this year, the doctors determined that the all clear given was in error. As of this writing, George has opted to have surgery, a very risky one requiring months of recuperation away from his home and his dogs.

George put out the word that he needed to find homes for his dogs and puppies. The Jack Russell community responded and a few days after, George said good-bye to all but four of his lifelong fur babies as he prepares for the battle for his life. He raised most of his dogs from puppies and he has produced many Nationals champions in a variety of events that the JRTCA hosts, as well as Bronze Medallion dogs (the highest honor a Jack Russell can achieve). Can you imagine the trauma of having to give up your dogs when you will be going through such a difficult time. But George lives alone in a rural area and the dog's happiness and welfare comes first in his mind. His 4 remaining dogs have gone to Virginia where his niece will care for them. If all goes well, they will be back with George in the future.

Please note that *Get Well Soon* sentiments are not appropriate.
If George does not have this surgery, he has only been given 6 to 20 months to live.

Here is the address:

George Anderson
c/o Margret Anderson
1310 Michael Road
Meadowbrook, PA 19046

Thank you from Fran and Me!

This week our destination is Durham, California. If you would like a destination for your card this week, how about sending it to DeAnna? DeAnna is the daughter of fellow Teapotter CarrollAnn (Mrs. Boz/CA). DeAnna is CarrollAnn's best friend as well as daughter. DeAnna has been diagnosed with HeR2 breast cancer and already has had a double mastectomy. She will be entering into the stage where her life will be filled with chemotherapy sessions soon. It's going to be a tough year or so.....

DeAnna is married to Greg, a 6th grade teacher. She is a teacher as well, although she put her career on hold to be a stay at home mom. She’s very involved with her three beautiful children. They are: Emily – 11, Andrew – 9 and Abigail – 7. Actually she has been doing some substitute teaching in order to pay for music lessons for her kids.

DeAnna loves to take her kids to Disneyland, especially around Christmas time which is about now! What good timing for us to take DeAnna on a trip to Disneyland through her mailbox filled with our pink Teapot Tuesday Disneyland themed cards!

The attached picture is DeAnna and her kids the day she got home from surgery after her mastectomy. Such a loving family!

Here is the address:

DeAnna Holman
1785 Garden Road
Durham, CA 95938

Thank you from CarrollAnn and Me!

MMTPT228 ~ DESTINATION STATION

This week our destination is DeKalb, Illinois. If you would like a destination for your card this week, how about sending it to Marlene? Marlene is the mother of fellow Teapotter Gabby (Gabalot). Marlene and Gabby are extremely close. Gabby would like to share her mother's story with the Teapotters in hopes that the collection of homemade cards/happy mail, will lift her mother's spirits during a very difficult time!

Marlene's health-battle started with cancer at age 24. She was given a 50-50 chance in the day when they operated and hoped they "got it all" cause that's all there was. She made it through but had a major set-back four weeks later with another major surgery. After many grueling months, she returned to her old-self once again--a super Mom, wife, daughter, sister, friend, and all around person. A few months later Marlene began having trouble with her back and neck and had to go to the chiropractor regularly. The pain and problems were ongoing and migraines then began. There were no treatments or medications for that at that time. Then sciatica followed that and she found herself confined to sit/lay on the couch. Her pain was so bad at this time, it brought her to tears and limited her mobility.

By age 40, she had gone through eight major surgeries and her body scars looked like a road map. Despite all that, she bounced back and had many "good" periods/times when she looked as "healthy as a horse" and no one who saw her knew any different. Her attitude was positive, upbeat and she was ready to deal with whatever came next.

In the last eight or so years, along with a couple of minor surgeries, she has had to have seven bypasses, two carotid surgeries, and a main valve replacement. Some of these surgeries had negative, permanent after-affects, which left her with more illness (i.e. COPD, choking reflex, chronic sciatica, chronic pain, osteo and rhuematoid arthritis.) In addition, she suddenly lost her dear son at age 42 and her best friend/little sister to cancer at age 49. Marlene's husband has had several bouts of skin cancer requiring surgery and treatment. and a heart attack with complications and hospitalization twice.

Marlene just had kidney surgery a few weeks ago and is scheduled for another surgery in January and another after that. After going through everything written here, she has finally gotten to a point that she is discouraged and "down." She hasn't given up totally but is having so many more "blue" days than not. She has always LOVED Christmas but she can't seem to find the spirit this season. She is important and vital to Gabby's family and is the glue that holds the family together. She needs some Teapotter encouragement and love and, if she can't find the spirit of Christmas this year, she needs us to bring it to her. So let' rally around Marlene and bring Christmas to her the only way the Teapotters can!

Here is the address:

Marlene Jones
1604 E. Dresser Rd.
DeKalb, IL 60115

Thank you from Gabby Rosalia and Me!

MMTPT229 ~ DESTINATION STATION

This week our destination is Eaton Rapids, Michigan. If you would like a destination for your card, how about sending it to Terry? Terry is the husband of fellow Teapotter Charlene (LilLuvsStampin). Terry has had some pretty significant health issues most recently but he is facing even more and is in the midst of an incredibly hard game of waiting......waiting for a kidney he needs very badly.

Back in October, as Terry and Charlene were dealing with trying to determine if any family members were a match to donate a kidney, he had a stroke and was hospitalized for two weeks. He has been in and out of the hospital and has been struggling with blood pressure problems. He has recently lost 35 pounds which unfortunately is not good since he is so thin due to his kidney failure. His medications are altering how food tastes and he has to force himself to eat.

The search is on for a kidney, the wait for one continues as he spends three days a week, four hours a day on dialysis. His medication also causes him to be drowsy, so he sleeps a lot. He longs to have his quality of life back and its difficult to keep his spirits up. Charlene is optimistic and keeps a positive attitude. She knows its just a matter of time until he gets his kidney. In the meantime, we are providing a little happy mail to give him something to look forward to each day, and then one day, they will get the phone call that is so important at this time, one leading to a new kidney.

Here is the address:

Terry Merrick
8830 Island Highway
Eaton Rapids, Michigan 48827

Thank you from Charlene and Thank you from me!

This week our destination is Greeley, Colorado. If you would like a destination for your card, how about sending it to Erik and Andrea? Andrea is the daughter of fellow Teapotter Marilynn (APandi) .

Erik and Andrea have been married 19 years. Andrea has had miscarriages in the past and at age 44 has given birth to not one but two healthly little babies! After a pregnancy watched by doctors pretty closely due to Andrea's age, on December 19th, the babies came into the world! Andrea did good and gave birth to a girl and a boy. The boy is named Theo and the girl is named Sopris after Marilynn's husband's grandmother. Theo weighed 6 pounds and Sopris weighed 4 lbs 9oz.

I don't think we could ring in the new year in a better way by celebrating the birth of two new precious little babies! You go Andrea!


Here is the address:

Erik and Andrea Truchses
1804 15th Ave.
Greeley, CO 80631

Thank you from Marilynn, Fran and me!

MMTPT232-Destination Station

This week our destination is San Antonio, Texas. If you would like a destination for your card, how about sending it to Sherry. Sherry has been brought to our attention by fellow Teapotter/SCSer Phyllis (SparklePlenty 1000).

In Phyllis' words:
Her name is Sherry Bevan widow of Norm Bevan. They were the happiest, most in love couple I have ever known. They had just sold their home in Houston Texas and were moving back to San Antonio after about 25 years of being away and were on their way to look for a new residence when the auto accident happened last February. His birthday was Jan 2 and the anniversary of his death date is Feb 2. Going to be tough month for Sherry! To add insult to injury Sherry broke her wrist in November and that required multiple surgeries. I think a bunch of beautiful flowers and "thinking of you" mail would be just the ticket to help cheer her up!

Here is the address to mail your card:
Sherry Bevan
17411 Canyon Hollow
San Antonio, Texas 78248




Thank you from Phyllis, Marie, and me..

Destination for teaparty #233

This week our destination is Pearland, Texas. If you would like a destination for your card, how about sending it to Martha. She has been brought to our attention by our very own Mothermark who is her loving niece.

The details:

Shortly after Thanksgiving, she and her husband went on a short, spur of the moment, trip to New York with another couple. While they were there my Aunt's husband all of the sudden said.....I don't feel so well......a few minutes later, he was gone! He had a massive heart attack and could not be revived! Not only to loose your husband so quickly, but to also be in a strange place and have to deal with transporting the body back home for a funeral. I can't imagine the shock that would be...its a very sad thing. Needless to say, my aunt's life has been turned upside down! Jim was 68 and was a wonderful, fun, loving man who was loved dearly by his grandchild.

We are all still in shock to know that Jim is gone. I don't think I will let Martha know the cards are coming....I think I will just let them happen.....she will know I am involved in some way........after the teaparty I will llet her know how all of this works. She has always loved my hand made cards....and I know her mailbox filling up with cards will be a wonderful thing at a difficult time!

Destination Station-MMTPT#234

This week our cards are going to Oak Brook, Il. to Becky who was brought to our attention by SCS member Carolyn (cspessmeg).

In Carolyn's words:

Becky Wilkie was diagnosed with Leukemia (AML) in Aug 2012 and has since undergone several treatments of chemotherapy, radiation, medication & recently a Bone Marrow Transplant on 12/12/12. Mother of 6, grandmother to 3+, wife, sister, daughter, aunt and friend to many.

Since her transplant, Becky is on an upward trend of recovery but every precaution still needs to be made to free her from infection since she has NO immune system right now. For 2 weeks after the transplant she was taken care of well at Loyola Medical Center in Maywood, IL. She has a total of 100 days of isolation before coming home to those that love her. She needs to stay close to the hospital in case she gets ill so she has taken residence with our sister Kim at a special hotel in Oakbrook, IL. During her 100 days she is prescribed several medications to protect her from infections, lessen pain, stabilize the rest of her body and most importantly, prevent her body from rejecting the donated bone marrow

Default MMTPT#236 ~ Are the ladybugs sedated?

This week our destination is Lake Mills, WI. Marian was brought to our attention by her daughter Mary Marysmessages.


Marian Tandetzke
Willowbrook Nursing Home
901 Mulberry Street
Lake Mills, WI 53551


Marian has broken bones in each of her legs.This is the second time she's been in rehab for broken legs; the first was one day shy of two years ago that she broke both femurs in a fall. This time it is her lower right leg and left ankle. She's been in a wheelchair since the first breaks and will continue to be. She's got a great outlook on life and has a positive attitude. She'll be going to assisted living after the nursing home (hopefully by beginning of June)
Marian will be 83 in April and she loves daffodils, cute things, lady bugs, dark chocolate, coffee, and collects apple themed items.

Mary let us know Marian got a tablet for Christmas and she loves it - she only uses it for games. She is an avid knitter and also crochets and has generously donated her time, talents and creations to those in need.

Marian has been a little down as therapy has not been progressive as fast as she would like so hopefully we can cheer her up a little

We're throwing a Valentine's Day party for Sara and Leavie, who are so in love. According to her Daughter Nancy nwilliams6:


She loves cows - especially red Angus and especially her favorite bull she calls Little Archie (he is her baby although he is up to about 700-800 lbs now). She loves flowers too - plants tons of them all over her front porch, in barrels in the back yard, and in a little garden she has on the side of her house. And she loves puzzles - watches wheel of fortune every time it comes on, does crossword puzzles, and puts jigsaw puzzles together too.


Sara Hodge just turned 77 but looks a lot younger. She married my step-dad, Leavie, 4 years ago. THey are so in love - he is wonderful and I consider him to be my father. Leavie is my best friend's dad and my next door neighbor so when they got married, my best friend became my sister and my Mom became my next door neighbor.

She was diagnosed with breast cancer about 5 yrs ago and had chemo and radiation treatments. They have watched her closely so it was a shock wheShe had breast cancer about 5 years ago and had a mastectomy and n they discovered the first tumor in the same spot as her mastectomy. It has spread to all the bones in her upper body - but most spots are small and the largest tumor is in her shoulder blade. THey are trying hormone blockers, bone strengtheners and iron. They say it looks promising so far. If it doesn't work they will do chemo next. At first she told me she wouldn't do the treatments but I think she has tried her mind. She also has COPD and does breathing treatments during the day and before bed.

She has such a sweet spirit, loves everyone, has a great attitude through all this, and laughs all the time. She is a smart cookie too. Qualified for Mensa (wish I had inherited that), worked as a labor relations officer for the Air Force civilian personnel department, and also helped several bases correct discrimination problems. If you can't tell, I am so proud of this lady!!!

Denise Maurer is having some serious health issues and needs a little love from the tea party. About 10 years ago she had a hip replacement. Recently they have found that an infection has gotten in to the area due to treatments that she had to take because she also has had Rheumatoid Arthritis for over 20 years. Her doctors had to replace the artificial hip and try to clear up the infection. No luck in that department yet. If they can not clear up the infection they will have to eventually amputate the leg at the hip. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers. Any words of encouragement for a full and speedy recovery will be greatly appreciated.

Denise is an artist and paints a lot of trees and landscapes. She likes cats and flowers especially tulips and roses and she likes a lot of color. Her style leans more toward the tailored side.

Mar 5 ~ SIL of teapotter Octoberbabe

In Mary's words:

I have a dear dear sister-in-law that found out she had colon cancer last April. She went through a long period of chemo and finished just before Christmas. Last week, they found another tumor on her ovary and that too is cancerous. She is such a wonderful person, always doing for others and I just think if we could overwhelm her with cards, it would just make her day. She loves the homemade cards I send her, so I know she'll love any she gets and it'll lift her spirts tremendously. And as a side note, she has macular degeneration too. She can't knit or do any of the crafts she so enjoyed in the past.

Jean was a hair sylist all her life and owned her own shop. She loves the mountains, flowers, and Wisconsin Badgers. And scripture would be wonderful, as they are active in their church.

This is Jean's information:

One of our very own citizens from Teapotterville has been fighting cancer and going through chemotherapy which has left her with little to no energy to enjoy many of her favorite pastimes including card making. She has been keeping up with the goings on in Teapotterville via e-mails just hasn't been able to participate. She could use a HUGE dose of teapotter lovin. Lets let Linda know that we haven't forgotten her and we will be keeping her in our thoughts and prayers for healing and strength. She goes by Zgirlsgranny here as that is her most favorite title of all time. She states that her biggest joy in life is from her daughter and 3 darling granddaughters....

wonderful man in our church, who is suffering from a Muscle Degeneration Disease. And the doctor has said there is nothing they can do except make him comfortable at this point. He is a Deacon, and has been a huge pillar of another church prior to this church he is part of. His wife has gone back to work, and he is a father and grandfather, who loves life. One of the things he loves to do is garden, work out in the yard. Planting, mowing etc etc. He has a deep love for the Lord, and just a wonderful person all the way around.

His favorite color is Blue. The info to send the cards to is:

This week our destination is Perryville, MO. If you would like a destination for your card, how about sending it to David. David has been brought to our attention by fellow Teapotter/SCSer Sylvia (Sillyfilly) .


David has been diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer two years ago. He has had several rounds of chemo. It has shown up in several other major organs but they have been able to keep it at bay until recently. It is now in his brain. Please NO GET WELL wishes.

David went to the University of Miami, their colors are orange and a medium hunter green. He is a big Miami Hurricanes fan and of course he is a Saint Louis Cardinals fan. His interests are golf, camping, DIY projects (he has redone several old houses back to their original glory) his dogs and of course his wife. He is a devout Christian so scripture is great.

Here is the address to mail your card:


David Pearce
208 E. North St
Perryville, Mo. 63775

Thank you from Sylvia and thank you from me!

This week our destination is Evansville, MN. If you would like a destination for your card, how about sending it to Barb. Barb has been brought to our attention by fellow Teapotter/SCSer Dorothy etsdes who found an article about her in the local paper.


Since 1995, Barb and members of her club have spread sunshine by making and distributing more than 47,000 greeting cards to people who are ill, mourning, lonely or struggling with other adversity in their lives. For Barb, helping students become more caring and kind toward others is part of her calling as a teacher.

“God gave me a job to do teaching these kids how to read, write and do math, but I believe he also wants me to teach them how to treat others,” she says.

The Kindness Club started in 1995 in Evansville (pop. 612) when Barb’s fourth-grade students decided to make get-well cards for a retired schoolteacher who became ill shortly after visiting their class as a guest speaker. Her subsequent thank-you letter prompted smiles and thoughtful reflection from the children.

Eighteen years and 316 students later, Barb now teaches first grade and is shepherding the school’s first-graders as the newest ambassadors of the Evansville Kindness Club. Inducted as lifetime members on the first day of school last fall, each student was presented a certificate bearing the Golden Rule: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

During their twice-weekly meetings, Barb and the children discuss the importance of playing together, including others, following rules and complimenting people. The club’s primary activity, however, continues to be creating handmade cards to lift the spirits of others—often with life-changing results.

Barb recalls how one former student disliked making cards and displayed a poor attitude and sloppy work during club meetings—until his babysitter was killed in a car accident and his class responded with a bundle of sympathy cards. “He delivered the cards and saw what they meant to the family,” she says. “The next year, he often stopped in to let me know about someone who could use a card, as do many other club alumni.”

So we have decided to make her an honorary Teapotter and send thank you cards to her for her dedication to teaching the Lord's way.

Here is the address to mail your card:

Barb Bratvold
c/o Evansville Kindness Club
P.O. Box 40
Evansville, MN 56326

Thank you from Dorothy and thank you from me!

In Redi2stamp's own words:

My son has been physically impaired for 15 yrs. since a service injury in the Army (from a night jump that went badly) thus has had to adapt from very physical to less active. He loves movies, and playing cards, and playing any game with his children! (He has a wonderful sense of humor) so even medical humor is ok. Deep faith base, always putting others first. Has a great love of country and greatest respect for men and women serving.
Now has a chronic and incurable form of Leukemia and he is in and out of the hospital as needed.

May 14 ~ friend of teapotter VickyDee

Marie has been my best friend for years. On Thursday, Feb 7th she developed a bad cold. This led very quickly to bronchitis. On Tuesday, Feb 12th she was admitted to the hospital just before noon. By 1:00 pm one of her lungs had collapsed, by 2:00 pm the second lung had collapsed, by 4:00 pm the family was called in to say their final goodbye’s. It turned out to be H1N1. She was in a drug induced coma for 5 days but has pulled through. She is home now but faces a long recovery. Additionally, an IV was inserted incorrectly, causing medication to leak into her hand resulting in a severe burn to the entire top of the hand. She will require plastic surgery to repair the damage & perhaps even need the veins reconstructed in that hand. And more recovery time. Marie is finding it difficult to be inactive & would be cheered by some happy mail.


This address is for Vicky and she will get them to Marie.

Send to:

Marie Champagne

c/o 46 Nichol Ave

Winnipeg, MB R2M 1V9

May 21 ~ Daughter of SCSer Pam Dotts (ClearlySouthern)


She is 22 years old and is coming home from an 8 month Missionary trip, traveling to 8 countries. I thought it would be really cool to have some cards at home, giving her encouragement. She is physically and mentally drained from the experience. Any scripture would be much appreciated.
She is coming home, April 23rd. Her address is:
Jessica Francis
1407 Baileys Barn Court
Spring Hill, TN 37174


She loves Photography, writing and traveling. She loves to serve the forgotten people (children especially). Children are drawn to her like a magnet. Her favorite color is blue. Our family has a dog (Yorkie-Bella) and a cat (Reina).
She has been to Malaysia, Vietnam, Cambodia, Australia, Rwanda, Kenya, Uganda, Nepal for this mission trip.
She is a young woman with great faith. Her Dad died when she was 16, so I think that gave her courage.
Hugs,

June 4 ~ friend of stamp300



His name is Jesse Diaz who has cancer & it's now metastasized all over his body. He went off chemo because he couldn't handle it so he's pretty much living day by day & enjoying life as much as possible. He's getting ready to have some cancer removed from his intestine.

He owns his own motorcycle shop in North Carolina. He custom builds motorcycles & sells them plus he even
donated a few to his church. He has a big farm with lots of horses, pigs, cows & etc. He felt like he needed to sell some of his horses due to his cancer because he just doesn't know when that day will come when he'll be going to
heaven.

I thought this would be a great gift to give to Jesse as he loves my cards & I'm sure he'll love all the Teapotters.

Donna is a 2 time breast cancer survivor, and now has some other kind of cancer. (They are not sure where/what, and Donna is not seeking treatment). She will go into hospice when "it is time", but for now is enjoying her friends and family while she can. Donna loves that she has 3 daughters. And that she has 3 grandsons and 3 granddaughters. She most recently sold clothes (until she was 74 years old), and is very good at putting outfits together and knowing her stock to fit her ladies' body shapes/styles.

UPDATE:
Today we were advised that Donna has taken a turn for the worse, so we thought that we would continue in the spirit of this tea party to celebrate her life and send cards to her daughters at the following address. Elise will share them all with her sisters so they all will feel the Teapotter love.

June 18 ~ Cousin of SCSer Momof3boys

My cousin Karin was admitted to the hospital for a bowel obstruction last Wednesday but they have had no chance to fix it due to fluid build up. Now she's developed pneumonia and had to be aspirated with a breathing tube inserted . Now she is running a fever and is in an induced coma on top of all that her husband hit a deer today on his way to see her and totaled his car!


Karin c/o
Renee Miller
955 sterling Circle
Folsom, ca

Her favorite colors are pastels but also love red and blue!
She is a scrapbook/stamper and she loves to read.
Her house is decorated in the country theme and her walls are a very soothing yellow.
Karin is a Christian and very spiritual.

She also loves quilts.

Today we learned that Karin has taken a turn for the worse so cards will be focused on support for her family

MMTPT #256 ~ DESTINATION STATION
June 2013 TICKLE A TEAPOTTER CHALLENGE!


The Destination this week is each other! Once a month, we send our cards to each other! A little payback and reward to the teapotters for always sending their cards to the recipient of the Destination Station.

It is our goal to surprise each and every Teapotter that is participating in this monthly card swap and send their card to in this monthly Tickle a Teapotter card swap with a handmade card from another Teapotter! You know, give them a little tickle!

To accomplish that I have started this new thread : Tickle a Teapotter ~ Sum Sum Summertime: Fun in the Sun in the Teapot Tuesday Extras Forum. If you are participating in the card exchange please go to this thread and follow the instructions.

Important:
If you choose to participate, please mail your card shortly after you have received word (a pm) from me regarding who you are tickling! Everyone is excited and looking forward to getting their card! If for some reason you cannot get your card off in the mail or will be really late in sending it, please let me or the person you are tickling know.

When you receive your card from a Fellow Teapotter, please send a pm to that person so they know their card has been received or post a comment in the Tell a Teapotter About Your Tickle thread! Just a little Teapot Tuesday Tickle a Teapotter Etiquette!

Mary Jane (sweet as can be) sits in front of me in church, she suffered a light stroke and is in the hospital. She will be moving to a place where she will have therapy done. I know without a doubt she would LOVE to receive cards, as she makes them herself - although she is not online

public health nurse in her career, and worked in the elementary schools.

Since her last name is Lamb, she puts a little lamb on the back of all of the quilts she makes. She loves to play bridge with her friends. She likes Judge Judy, Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune and all the animal shows. She has a dachshund, Willy.

Her favorite colors are peach and sage green.

Hi Sheri!
Thanks for remembering We moved her to assisted living in San Luis Obispo in March. About 2 weeks before her move, Willy her dachshund succumbed to cancer very suddenly. Mom has adjusted fabulously to her new apartment and plays bridge 3 times a week, and bingo twice. She is still making quilts, although finds it easier to work on lap quilts instead of the big ones she used to do. She was on hospice care for awhile but has been discharged because she no longer "fits their criteria" so that's a good thing! Too healthy

The family, including the Tennessee cousins, are all gathering during the birthday week (14th-22nd) to celebrate. It will be a grand old time!



Her address is:
Evelyn Lamb
475 Marsh St. #224
San Luis Obispo, CA 93401

His name is Trent (Trenton) Baker

In May of 2012, he physically retired from the Navy after serving for over 23 years. He worked on planes, jets and helicopters as a trouble shooter on the electrical side. He also served 2 wars and was deployed. He was officially retired in August (because of how much leave time he had on the books). He decided to take some time off and visit with family before he started looking for a job at the beginning of this year. But he found a knot on around his shoulder blade in November. They removed it (this time 4x1 incision) and found it was cancer surrounding a lymph node and was told he had skin cancer. Due to the treatment he cannot work. He has spent 15 days in high dose infusion therapy, before his kidneys and liver show signs of shutting down. He immediately had to stop treatment. After a month of watching his blood numbers, he has started his low dose treatment a couple weeks ago, where he gives himself a shot 3 times a week. He will continue this treatment for 10 months, as long as his body can handle it. Just like any treatment he has his good days and bad, being tired and nauseous.

He birthday is in August and he will turn 42.
He actually has a green thumb and his favorite are the 30 plus orchids he has in his apartment.
He likes sports cars, cooking and wine (even though he cannot have it during treatment). Of course Navy, planes, jets are perfect too.

thank you so much for doing this!!
