Hello my friends. It's been over two months since my last post. That last post was of the Mother's Day card I crafted for my mom. The very day of that post my sweet mom, the best friend I will ever have, had a severe change in her neurological status. Melanoma had taken over her brain. I was blessed to receive a last hug, kiss, and 'I love you,' while she still recognized me. She slipped quickly into a coma and passed away in a Hospice Center eleven days later. She was never able to see the card I made for her. We held her funeral and buried her ashes the day before Mother's Day. I placed her special card and a long letter for her into her burial vault.
This is the reason for my long absence. I needed time to gather the shattered pieces of my heart and reassemble them as best I could. I'm still in the midst of that process, but am beginning to feel the urge to create again. My mom was the person who fostered my love of art and crafting from the time I was a little girl. I think she will be happy to see me working in my craft room again.
I'll be back in a few days with a new project for Frilly and Funkie. I hope these past couple of months have seen sunnier days for you all. I send you my love and wishes for all that is good and wonderful.
