Deanine's Cranes, Part 2

Deanine's Cranes were shipped today and will be delivered tomorrow. Aunt Carol did an amazing job of folding cranes and organizing the effort, assisted by Cousin Scott. They came out so beautiful! Check out the pics! I love the basket and the interesting colors and textures of the paper.

The cranes will arrive just as Deanine is starting her treatment. Deanine, we hope these cranes bring you good luck and health and happiness. Every time you look at them, remember that we are all thinking about you and wishing you well.

Anyone reading this: If you'd like to post your thoughts, you can do so below!

Deanine loved her Cranes! Julie thanks so much for all your help and the wonderful idea.
We all put our love and best wishes into the basket and sent them off and I believe in my heart they will make a difference!
I sent out a small basket of cranes to Deanine's daughter Alexa today so she could have some of her own good luck cranes and that her moms cranes could stay together.
I am working on more cranes for the next person on the list and will send them up to you as soon as I have a good amount.
Aunt Carol
