Smile Book Box

This is a box I made for Jeanne along with a set of thank you cards which I will show at a later date. She proudly displays this box in her living room filled with the lovely items you all sent to cheer her up!! While I'm talking about Jeanne I should give you an update. She is halfway through her chemo treatments (she needs 4 total and just completed the second round) and is doing very well. The first week and a half after a treatment is a bit rough but then she said she feels pretty good. She is staying extremely positive and she continues to thank each and every one of you for your support! You have no idea how much the items you sent mean to her!! :) She did lose all her hair before the second treatment but she was prepared for that as they told her it would definately happen. When I first saw her bald head I couldn't believe how perfectly round it was and no moles or anything...I actually thought she looked really good!! So I told her atleast she has a great looking head for being bald!!

OH I love this box idea, so great!!!

So glad to hear your Aunt is staying positive and happy.

I certainly wouldn't do well bald, I have lumps and bumps! hehe!

I am so happy that she is doing well- I would love to send another card for her- could you forward her address again?
Can't believe I misplaced the envelope from her.
Let her know I am sending positive thoughts.

Ah Stacie this is a nice idea. I'm happy to hear that Aunty Jeanne is taking it all so well; I had the sweetest card from her. Tell her please that it wasn't necessary but such a thrill!
