Crystal Cave Creations Premiere Edition!

I have been inspired to get this site up and running now by way of an auction on Today's Creative Blog that is currently being held for the Nielson Family. Stephanie Nielson is a very creative and active blogger via her own site, The NieNie Dialogues. As written on the Nie Recovery Website:

"On Saturday, August 16, 2008, Stephanie Nielson was in a plane crash with her husband, Christian Nielson, and his flight instructor, Doug Kinnear, near St. John's Arizona. Doug Kinnear passed away soon after arriving at the Maricopa County Hospital. Christian and Stephanie remain in critical condition at Maricopa Burn Center. Christian has sustained burns on ov er 30% of his body. His wife Stephanie's body was burned over 80%. For the past four years, Stephanie has welcomed us into her charming abode through the NieNie Dialogues. Far from being a product of creative editing, the Nielson's don't just shine through the selective lens of a blog. They are ingenuous examples of family devotion, eternal romance, and Christ centered faith. This site is dedicated to their welfare and recovery."

Kim from Today's Creative Blog has asked that everyone who can, get involved in order to help the Nielson family - and one suggestion was to have an auction of hand made/crafty things. Here are my initial submissions to the auction - and if anyone wants to put in a bid on any of the items, write to me at CrystalCaveCreations@gmail.com and I'll make sure to send you instructions as to how to bid on them via Today's Creative Blog. All donations will go to the Nielson Family. If you'd like to donate to the Nielson family in any other way, you're welcome to click here:
