Hello, I've had to temporarily move my blog back to blogspot.

Last night my hosting company, Host Gator, took my site down with no warning. They said because I was using a lot of bandwidth, but when I log into my account I have not exceeded my bandwidth allowance for the month.

When I explained to them the situation, expecting possibly a little sympathy and the chance to at least retrieve my newest blog entries, they did not care. It was 7pm, I'd had orders rolling in all evening, and now my site is gone! I quickly tweeted for help on a new web host and a local angel directed me to got me in touch with Mark at Another angel who had an account set up for me with just a phone call from Janet and after one very late night on my end, my site was moved to the new server and all is well.

So if you're ever looking for a hosting company, designer, or anything please call Mark and repay him for being such a kind person to me!!

We are packing and shipping as quickly as possible. Please be patient with us. We're also adding just one big page of closeout items that we will post ASAP.

Also, I am just so moved & touched by all the kind words, notes, and prayers from all you dear people. Know that each note is read and appreciated.

Dear Gina,
I have not been to your blog before but heard about your loss on the blog, Knack. My heart feels so saddened for you. A dear friend of mine just lost her husband on Christmas Day to a heart attack, so your story hit my heart. I am praying for you and your family. Praying for comfort and provision.

My thoughts and prayers are with you too. xo

So sorry to hear of your loss; I am moving to Eureka Springs in a couple of weeks to open the Queen Anne Mansion gift shop, hope to meet you sometime. My heart goes out to you and your family.

Melissa from Inspired Room sent me over and I just want to tell you how incredibly sorry I am about your tragic loss. Sadly, I understand, all too well, the pain of losing a beloved family member at such a young age. On Feb. 17, 2008, my brother Robert, my only sibling, passed away suddenly from heart failure at the age of 41. He left behind his two young daughters, his wife of fifteen years, and my family. It has left a hole which can never be healed, but it does become less raw over time. Next month, he will have been gone for two years and I miss him so much.

We know what our loved ones would want us to do, would expect us to do, and what they are still pulling for us to do. It's just difficult getting to the point where we feel up to living up to those things. My heart is with you and your family as you gently make your way back into the world. That may take you a while, but know that it will come. People will tell you to call if you need anything. Take them up on it as much as you possibly can. And be honest about it. If you need someone to help with the grocery shopping, let someone do it for you...I know that you do not know me, as I do not know you, but I know Melissa. I am glad that she directed me to share some words with you. I am so, so sorry for your loss.

Gentle hugs,

I've been a fan/ customer of your shop in the last few years. I have featured Feather Your Nest on my blog. Imagine my shock and sadness when I read about your tragic loss on Melissa's "The Inspired Room." May God's love, peace and grace surround you and your family...

Dear Gina,
I was reading a blog when I came across your story and it made me stop in my tracks. I felt I needed to come and tell you how sorry I am for you and your family. I will be praying for you and hope you find the strength to move forward with your life especially for your children.
I cannot imagine what you are going through. May heart breaks for you. I do not live near by to help in that respect, but if there is anything I can do to help you I will, just name it.
May you find comfort in knowing that you have people who are thinking of you and praying for you during such a difficult time in your life.

Dear Gina,

I heard about Mike's passing from my aunt Debi back home. There really aren't any words to express how sorry I am. He was a good man, and I know you loved him very much.

I wish I could give you a big hug. Please, know that you're in my thoughts and prayers.

Love and Best Wishes,
Danielle Tatro
