STAY STRONG AND RISE AGAIN PHILIPPINES!
Hey guys, I never do this but as someone who was born and raised in the Philippines I just could not pass this up. I’m sure many of you guys have seen the devastating reports from Philippines because of Typhoon Haiyan. Hundreds of thousand are said to be displaced and it has been estimated that up to 10,000 people may have perished. I know your donations is needed and would be appreciated.
If I have any Canadian followers out there, the Government of Canada will match dollar for dollar any donations made to a registered charities on top of the $5 million they’ve provided for relief support.
Here’s a link of some registered charities in Canada:
Doctor Who Finales 1-7
"What Mary endured psychologically and physically before Katherine’s banishment from court in 1531 was trivial compared with what followed Henry’s marriage to Anne and the birth of their daughter Elizabeth on 7 September 1533. While Henry had risked his throne for yet another girl, he could still hope for a male heir; but Mary, who defied her father and fought the succession of humiliations that followed, risked all with little hope for the future. She had acquired a firm identity as a princess from her early years at court, and when denied that status she acted every inch the Tudor.
From the outset she refused to relinquish the dignity of princess, of which she was deprived after Henry announced his marriage to Anne in April 1533. Her very serious illness that summer demonstrated the personal cost of defying her father. After Elizabeth’s birth, the council again ordered Mary to stop calling herself princess. She continued to refuse her demotion to the status of ‘lady’. Henry, enraged by what he repeatedly called her Spanish stubbornness, failed to recognize that she was as obstinate as he.”

Oh Happy Day has put together an amazing round up of her paper crafts and I’m so inspired! My sister is having a baby shower and I’m thinking the giant paper flowers would be super fun to have dotted around.
