Christmas Eve Giveaway



For the night of Christmas Eve we are not giving anything away... BUT our sweetest friend ever is!

Sue is literally an earth angel and I like to think of her as one of my partners in crime!

Sue takes finger prints from people who have passed away so that she can place their prints into silver for families who are missing them. She has done this for babies as young as 13 weeks gestation all the way up until old age. I don't know how she does it. So much sadness to endure each day. She does it though because she has a calling to. Sue first contacted me when she found my website. She placed some of Christian's ashes into a silver seashell pendent for me. What a treasure this woman is to me.

Sue is giving away this sweet silver butterfly pendent.


Isn't it gorgeous!

If you would like to enter this giveaway please go an "like" Sue-Ella Signatures on facebook! Tell her she is amazing - because she really is!

If you do not have a facebook account please still go and have a look at her page!

After you have done that come back and leave me a comment on here or on my facebook page.

Good Luck everyone!

How you can help ease the pain for a friend or loved one this Christmas


In the last week I have received numerous emails from people wanting to know how they can help to ease the pain their friends are suffering as they have to face Christmas and the holiday season without their baby/ies.

Firstly how awesome is it that people want to help their friends who have experienced such a loss? If you are one of these friends reading this, than you should know that this world needs more friends like you.

There are so many things you could do to help ease your friend or loved one's pain. Here are a few things you may find helpful.

Firsty, accept that your friend or loved one may not feel up to participating in family gatherings or events. Allow them to hibernate if that is what they need to do.

Make sure that in your Christmas or holiday card to them you mention their childs name. Even if you just say that you are remembering or thinking of their child. This will mean more to them than you will ever know.

Do not be afraid to speak their childs name aloud. You are not reminding them that their child died. They did not forget. More than often a bereaved parent wants to make sure that their child is not forgotten so hearing their childs name come from the mouth of others is the most beautiful Christmas Carol they could ever hear.

There are many things you could do in memory for your friend's baby. You could make them a special Christmas ornament with their child's name. You could release a balloon for them (make sure you get photos of the release for the family). You could light a candle for their child and photograph it for the family, better still you could give the family a special candle in memory of their child.

You could visit the childs grave site and leave flowers or some special coloured Christmas fairy dust. Write the child a little card and leave it there for the family to find. This would be such a gift to them.

All in all there really are so many things you could do but the most important thing is to acknowledge their child. This is the greatest gift.

Try to stay clear of comments like "She is in a better place" and things like that. Their child should be with them at Christmas time.

Wishing you all lots of love for this time of the year, and if you were wanting to help out a friend or family member this holiday season I hope you found this helpful.

It is so important.



Did you know that December is my favourite month of the year? Why?

Well. it is magical to me. There is something different in the air to all the other months. There is more general kindness shown between human beings. Whether you believe that Jesus was the son of God or not you have to admit that Jesus' teachings were pretty amazing. That is what Christmas is. The celebration of the birth of this incredible human being.

The true meaning of Christmas I believe is often overshadowed with stress. In my book, stress is not cool. So I have made an effort this year to do something that I should really do more of and that is nothing. Each evening, usually quite late, I light Christian's candles, sit on my couch and put my feet up. I listen to my favourite Christmas CD, Noel by Josh Groban. My mind calms down and I feel at peace. I feel that having this quiet time at the very end of each day has made this Christmas a truly beautiful and healing one for me.

I believe it is so important to take time out of your day especially at this time of the year to just sit, reflect and to just be.

Wishing you a peaceful week in the lead up to Christmas Day.

December's Pie Throwing Festivities



I am throwing a pie at the wind yesterday, no doubt this pie is going to come flying back at my face since the stupid wind was so strong that I couldn't keep my camera still at the beach. So yeah a Cadbury chocolate pie to the wind. Dude seriously calm down when I am working.

This second pie goes to my neighbour Adam for always letting River into his home. Seriously I can never get my kid to come home... THANKS for you help Adam! Cream Pie in your face!

My 3rd meat pie goes to the loser kid who beat up my River last week.

My 4th and final pie (a rather large rotten prawn pie) goes to the parents of the kid who beat up my kid. Seriously if you see your kid beating up on a little girl, how about stop them!

Oh that felt good.

Join me won't you?
