Mission Accomplished!

Cheers to you all! Lisa and I were able to deliver this precious bundle of memories to Andy on the day the movers showed up to his house to pack him back to the states. Whew! We made it, well almost. We still have a few loose ends to tidy up, mainly a few travel albums, but we did it! I feel so blessed to have been a part of such a special project, not only to do this for Christine's family, but to be able to meet so many charitable and talented women along the way!

So here are our final stats give or take a few:

11,391 original photo count
2,653 edited photo count
478 layouts completed . . . some are still trickling in
2,020 photos scrapped
633 photo's left to scrap for the travel albums

Lisa and I will never be able to thank everyone who participated enough, BUT, we did toast with sparkling cider to you all the night the last page was inserted! What a great feeling! I'd like to think Christine was smiling down on all of us that night too!

Here is the package of art supplies that were presented to Christine's children, made possible by all the generous donations toward this project. Hopefully they will take after their mother and create art for years to come!


  1. Congratulations! Job well done. I'm sure Christine is thankful and her family will treasure these books forever. What a wonderful way to bring so many people together.

    I'm proud of you!

  2. Thank you both for doing this for Christine and her family. I feel blessed to have been able to contribute!! Cheryl

  3. I, too feel very honored to have been a part of this project. I think a big thing has been done here for Christine and the kids and Andy. They will cherish these scrapbooks and connect them to their mother for the rest of their lives and that is one reason this was...big. I am proud to know both of you, this is what I mean when I say "making a difference while your here on this earth"--this is one of those things...

  4. Kudos ladies!!! I am so blessed to hear of this kind of service that goes around to those who will be thankful for eternity!! You are gems and angels and one angel in particular is so grateful to you in keeping her alive in all our hearts. Many thanks! & much love!!

  5. Lisa and Leslie and all those that helped make this happen...what a blessing you are to the Post family and to those you touch! It really is the small things that matter in this life, each little thing that we can do to make this earthly experience meaningful and you all matter much!
