Maja 'Thank You' Cards!

Hello my dear friends! I am back. It felt good to be creating in my craft room again. It is wonderful therapy, and I probably should have done it sooner.

I have missed you all! I thank you with all my heart for the amazing support and kind comments you have shared with me, both here and on Facebook.    

I have the honor of hosting the Friday Focus on Maja Design Papers at the Frilly and Funkie Blog this week. I crafted a coordinating set of  'thank you' cards showcasing the Vintage Summer Basics and Vintage Spring Basics collections.    


Your visit means so much to me! It is an incredible blessing to have such wonderful, crafty friends. I look forward to visiting your blogs as well. I have missed out on a great deal of creative inspiration these past few months.   

Hop on over to the Frilly and Funkie Blog for more information on Maja Paper collections and simple instructions for assembling these cards. 

Sending heartfelt wishes for your happiness and many joyful days of crafting!

With an aching heart...

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.
