Simply Lovely

I'm glad it's the weekend!  Lots to do in a couple of days that always see to fly by, but I appreciate the weekends now that I am back working again.  I've got a layout to share that I created using the November kit and layout sketch from Artful Delight, along with the November #4 challenge board at 1 2 3 Get Scrappy.  I went diagonal with their board and incorporated a stencil/mask, circles and leaves.  I created this layout for my dear friend and best hairdresser ever.  A sweet picture of her and her husband.  

For more details on the Artful Delight November scrapbook kit you can check out the details here.

I'm working on another project, a canvas which I will share with you later on this week.  Seems like I've gotten my mojo back and am excited to be back into my hobby!

Thanks for stopping by!

Life's Journey

My poor neglected blog and hobby. . . As most of you know it's been a rough couple of years for me and so many changes in my life with my Mom's illness.  I've traveled a path of pain and sorrow for the losses in my Mom and have now embraced where she is at and realize that it is all in God's hands.  I miss the Mom I had terribly and there isn't a day that goes by that I would give anything to sit down and talk to her. To hear her say I love you.  All that made my Mom the wonderful loving and caring person she was is gone.  All that is left is a shell that holds a lost person.  I've learned that the brain is so powerful and when it doesn't work as it should it takes so much away from a person.  I am not the same person I was a year ago and am painfully working to find myself.  I struggle with my creativity and I worry that it's lost.  I don't want to give up, but struggle with how I hold on.  I've neglected so many of you and for that I am sorry.  I always felt like my blog friends were my second family.  I thought about taking some time off but fear if I do that I will never come back.  I am fortunate that the design teams I am currently on are understanding of me and understand where I am  in life.  A big thanks to Leeanne and Barb for being there for me.   I realized the other day that I had created a layout for the October sketch challenge at Purple Pumpkin that I never posted on my blog.  I guess better late then never.

I am working on a couple of projects.  What use to take me a matter of hours to complete now can take days.  I am hoping to get them completed and posted this month.

Thanks to all of you that understand where I am at in life.  You never know where the path will take you or what it may hold.  One day at a time . . .
