Raffleness

Crumbs, we have got a LOT and I mean a flippin ton of stuff for one very very lucky winner.
Ive only had the raffle button on this blog 1 hour and already we have sold 12 tickets. I wish I could buy one and keep the lot myself! Im going to run this raffle until the end of April - plenty of time to buy them when you get a spare bob or two.
I want to share pictures of some of the prizes we have so far and there are more to come. Just take a look at this lil lot of fabbo chipboard.
Embellies, Bare Elements, trinkets and gems - oh yeah!
Kits and paper packs ranging from Elsie to Scenic Route to My Minds Eye, Jenny Cocks and 3 bugs in a rug. Slurp!
Stamps - lots of Fancy Pants gorgeousness and other wee needables.
A flippin MiMi tote - a big one too!
Alphas - a daily essential.
Love stickers and epoxies - you got a ton here!
Tools - lubs tools. LOOK!
I have a list of the donators right here - please show your support by visiting their respective blogs and shops :)
Scrapbook Sisters
The Scrapbook Shop
Banana frog (prize on its way - over £130 of stamps!)
Story of my Life - USA
Sparkle the Imagination
ScrappyDo's
Scrummy Stash Cafe
Scrap Magic
Scrapshed
Make The Moment Last
Jenny Cocks
Laura Fiore
Persephone

And finally I want to share this. 'Tis hardly a piece if art but this piece of paper is like being giving a certificate that states you were actually quite RIGHT and your child WILL get help.
This is the little baby that we fought 6 shitty years fighting for.
I urge you if, like me, you are a mother of a child with needs - keep fighting.
Even if you cry into your pillow every night and nobody wipes them away.
Do it even though you know that nobody in the first stages gives a damn.
Do it as you beat the keys on your keyboard knowing that your email or letter will never get to its final destination or opened by anyone who understands.
Do it knowing that your look of desperation is construed as you being paranoid.
Do it even though those bruises on your forehead hurt like hell. Yep - keep banging your head on that brick wall for a little while longer.
Do it as you keep your head held high knowing that other people think you are an interfering cow.
Do it as you try to pretend that the mothers who run a mile from your approach are doing it because they are "late" getting their kids to an after school class.
Do it as you try to bare the bleeding as your knuckles drive into that cement wall knowing that the answer lies on the other side - its a million miles thick but it IS penetrable because if you have love and hope in your heart - YOU WILL SUCCEED.
And wonder about this...... Are you strong enough to batter the phone lines of the Local Education Authority, your kiddies specialists, the Disabled Living Allowance and any subsequent tribunal services? Can you try and reason with a headmaster who's sole drive is not based on special educational needs? Can you approach a teacher who YOU KNOW realises there is a problem but is the weak link in a chain with absolutely no authority other than losing her job if she speaks up?
Because if you can do any of this, you have my total and utter respect.
Been there, done that and got the ill fitting t-shirt.
And whilst it was bloody awful, that piece of paper is proof that persistence works.
Go Team Wiseman.

Massive congratulations on the certificate Kirsty, you and your family have worked so hard getting Ellie everything she needs and this just goes to show that persistance works. Sending you tons of hugs.

Congrats - having been there, done it and got the same ill fitting tee, I want to say how glad I am you didnt give up the fight.
Its worth all the blood, sweat and tears just to get that legally binding piece of A4 which will ensure Ellie now gets the support she is entitled to.
WTG!
T.x.

Hurrah on the SEN! I know how hard it is to get through that process, especially with no diagnosis (and therefore no convenient "label" for the bureaucrats to get their little brains around! ;)).

My younger brother (he's 25 now) has Downs and my parents had to fit for EVERYTHING back then. Makes me sad that things still haven't changed that much. Grrrr.

I once heard a keynote speak at a conference say that being a parent of a special needs child turns you into a guerilla warrior. Never a truer word spoken I don't think.

Here's hoping the SEN can lead to the right and best help for Belle.

Just found your site recently and went back and read as much as I could. Your amazing daughter is so blessed and so loved and you are an amazing mom. I am in awe of not just everything you do for that beautiful little girl of yours, but all the other gorgeous crafts and scrapbooking you do, and your amazing photography, and teach as well! I have twin daughters and I would move the world for them, but I don't know if I'd have time for the other stuff as well, my scrapping is so far behind as it is!

I can see that God is working through you and little Ellie is obviously thriving with all the love you and your husband pour out to her. You are in my prayers and I look forward to seeing how the trip to the states works out for all of you.

Well done Kirsty! Keep fighting cause she is soooo worth it. Total respect for you and your fighting spirit!

I think you should have it framed! After 8 years of going to the endocrinoligist, my son will start therapy next month hopefully! We have also been referred to a geneticist. It only took us 8 years to get here! I'm so excited for you and for me!

Debs said...

Hunny I am so proud of you for being who you are, even when I know you feel like you are alone and noone gives a hoot. We do, I do and the responses here proves you have a lot of us onside....dont ever give up, and dont stop being your lovely self...no matter what :) xx

Way to go Kirsty! Told you to keep at it!!! Been there, done that , got the T-shirt! Just don't let them wear you down! You are only human after all! It does have a habit of catching up with you, so keep your eyes peeled and get help if you need it! Keep fighting!
Love Caroline X
