12 Kits of Occasions, a specail blog hop


Hello and welcome. As you may know, The 12 Kits of Occasions lost a member of the design team recently. Sharron Gregory passed away peacefully at home on March 30th. Design team members, past and present, are joining together today for a blog hop in honor of our sweet friend. 

Upon visiting the 12 Kits blog, you'll find a friendship card from each of the designers. When you follow the link to their personal blog, you'll find their card and a memory shared about Sharron.


My memory of Sharron comes from the 4th birthday card I had made for my granddaughter and shared on my blog. I mentioned we would be giving her a Calico Critters doll house, car and Sweet Pea bunny family. Sharron commented that she used to buy her granddaughter Calico Critters and so enjoyed shopping for her and all of the cute characters. From then on, every time I looked into the teepee at those toys, I thought of Sharron.

When my little Sweet P plays with her set (it's at our house) she has a mommy, daddy, gramma, papa and Sweet P bunny. There's one extra bunny and she always asks me who it should be. It's usually a pre-school friend or someone we know. When this pandemic is over and Sweet P can come to gramma's house again, I think that bunny will have a new and permanent name... Sharron

Your card is as cute as can be Lisa! I so love that you'll be giving that extra bunny such a special name. Sharron will never be forgotten. What a beautiful tribute to her.

What a beautiful post and card in memory of Sharron! I didn't know that Sharron loved buying the Calico Critters for her granddaughter...you got me hooked and now I buy them for every birthday and Christmas for my sweet Addy and she absolutely LOVES them!! And so sweet that you're going to name the extra bunny Sharron...what a great way to keep her memory alive! And Sharron would have loved this card with the sweet little birdies too...lovely, lovely card! Sending many hugs your way today dear friend!!

That is such a wonderful idea, Lisa! It brought tears to my eyes knowing that you are going to name the sweet bunny after sweet Sharron. And your card honors her completely as we all come together to sing her many praises! She would love the whole design with the darling songbirds. Sharron's words of encouragement and her friendship will be missed by me and so many others who were blessed to know her. Take care and be safe! Hugs, Darnell

Lisa a beautiful card in honour of Sharron, but your story about Sweet P and the Callico Critters and how the extra character will be named Sharron made me a bit teary eyed. Sharron would have loved this card!

Aw, what a sweet tribute to your friend, Lisa. And the card is beautiful, happy and light. The embossed stitching in the background reminds me of the musical notes, wafting high in to the air.

Sorry I'm so late getting here--not that I don't think of you, Lisa. What a wonderful post with your Sharron story & how sweet to name the extra bunny in her honor. Hope it isn't too long until you get to have Sweet P at your house again! The card you made is adorable & I love your coloring, as always!
