Signing Off

Well, my dear scrapping friends, the time has come for me to sign off indefinitely. After a difficult pregnancy, my boys came 3 months early on November 10th. Our Dex didn't survive the journey and has returned to his Heavenly Father. Our life is (even more) chaotic now as we've circled the wagons a little tighter around our family, fighting the good fight alongside our Crew, who remains in the NICU.

I've felt very blessed by my association with you all and your kind and generous words over the last year. I plan to be back some day, with new layouts of our new little guy.

If you'd like to follow Crew's journey, he has his very own blog now: http://crewsjourney.blogspot.com/

I've had your blog in my digital scrapping feeds for awhile now. I'm so very sorry to hear about your precious baby boy. My husband and I lost Joshua, our first baby, at 26 weeks due to an incompentent cervix. May God give you special comfort as you mourn Dex and special strength as you continue to care for little Crew.

You are an amazing woman. Thank you for all you have shared with the scrapbooking community!

Thank you for sharing Crew's blog. I sat and cried while reading the whole blog. I am so grateful that we have a loving Heavenly Father that has blessed you with comfort and peace with Dex, and the roller coaster with Crew. Please know that you are in my prayers, as well as your family. Take care!

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. My firstborn son passed away almost 4 years ago and I am awaiting the arrival of my 3rd bayb in 6 weeks. I am going to read your son's blog now and I'm sure I'll have many tears. Thank you so much for the templates you have made for everyone. (((Hugs)))

I'm so sorry for your loss, how devastating. I pray that your baby boy will rest in peace and send his brother Crew many healing prayers.

Christine said...

Wow...I'm so, so sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you and your family. I will follow Crews journey and pray for you all along the way. I've enjoyed your creativity and hope you have the strength to return here when you feel up to it. I will watch for layouts of your new little guy!

I am so sorry for your loss. I hope Crew grows stronger and stronger each day! The twins' story touched my heart...

Just wanted to let you know that you and your family are in my prayers. We just lost our second son three weeks ago. I was only 18w4d along. I skimmed through Crews blog (I would not have been able to read through everything without waking the entire family!) and will continue to follow him.

Our Heavenly Father knows you are strong and wouldn't give you anything you couldn't handle - sometime it just sucks to find out how strong we can be!

Lots of love to you and your famly.

My heart goes out to you and your family as well as my prayers. While everyone pain is different I do understand as our Samuel was born into heaven in 2000. I pray for strength and healing for Crew that he might soon be able to be home and growing strong.

Melissa said...

Megan-I am so very sorry for the loss of your beautiful baby boy, Dex. We will pray for Baby Crew and your entire family. The NICU is really a tough place to be-may God sustain you during this difficult journey. Thank You for sharing your awesome templates with the scrapping world!

Good Lord, girl, you deserve the time off.

I'm reading through Crew's journey and I'm having to fight my tears (if I go get my husband from work with tears in my eyes, he'll suspect the worse and won't believe that a blog made me cry that bad.)

Your fans in Scrapland are waiting for your arrival back, but we all know that scrapping is the last thing on your mind right now.

::hugs:: I can't imagine the pain and you seem a long stronger than I could ever be.

Thanks for all of the templates and we all hope Crew makes it through like the trooper we know he is!

I can't even fathom what your family is going through right now. Our prayers are being sent your way. I wish there was something that we as a community could do for you as you have done for us. Please if there is ever anything we can do, please let us know. ((hugs))

In His arms--

I happened upon your blog today and just wanted to add my note of thanks for all the work you've done. I am fairly new to digi-scrappin and am falling in love with templates. Your site was a blessing and a joy. You have a great sense of style & simplicity, and I have loved seeing your colored versions of what you did with your templates. Thanks again, and I wish you much luck and laughter on this new road.

I've been following Crew's progress and he is just such a little cutie! I'm so happy that he's doing well and smiling up a storm for the camera. I know you're not designing for the time being but I listed you for an award anyway because you still have the best templates around. It's over at my blog whenever you have the time if you want to look. http://majortiggerscraps.blogspot.com/2009/09/and-winner-is.html
