Nie Nie Auction

I know many of you inside and outside of he blogging world have heard of the tragic events surrounding the Nielsen family. On Saturday, August 16, 2008, Stephanie Nielson was in a plane crash with her husband, Christian Nielson, and his flight instructor, Doug Kinneard, near St. Johns, Arizona. Doug Kinneard passed away soon after arriving at the Maricopa County Hospital. Both Stephanie and Christian were severely burned in the accident. They are on the road to recovery, but still need help as they have four children and medical bills continue to mount.

QuicKutz, Inc. would like to help out in some small way, so is donating the ultimate Silhouette Package to be auctioned off to the highest bidder. Included is a Silhouette Digital Craft Cutter, vinyl in black, red, brown and white (perfect for vinyl wall art), 3 packs of transfer paper, scraper, universal hook, extra blade, a set of cutting mats and a $25 digital download card. Every last penny from this auction will go directly to the Nie Nie Recovery Fund. This package is valued at $600.

I have heard about their story many times, but I had no idea you actually knew a family member! Such a sad story, but such amazing people!

Yup, we'll be in Lakeside-Pinetop for Christmas! I was so excited when you told me you'll be there too! We'll be driving there this Friday, the 19th, and we'll stay through New Years! We totally need to get together and play! Call me when you're there- my number is (210) 247-7712... we should go sledding or to see Twilight again, or to lunch or something! If my cell doesn't work, you could look up my in-laws in the phone book under Verlon and Viola Neill...

How long will you be there??
