Life is heavy....

Yes, life certainly seems heavy these last few weeks and if I get one more phone call with bad news I might just break. Well, I don't think I will break, but I certainly do feel fragile emotionally. I can't stand to get up in the morning and look at myself in the mirror. I have swollen eyes, red eyes and I feel like I look. Usually a good hot shower with some more crying in it helps, well, emotionally helps, doesn't so much help my looks!! LOL..... Tomorrow I we bury my ex-husband and my girls father. I was married to him for 17 years. I have had to plan his service and it has been way harder on me then I think anyone can imagine. I hurt for my girls and we all have a flood of emotions that I am not sure we all quite understand at this moment. Please hold us in prayer.


This lo was done for Tricia's Ready Scrap Go Contest. There are 10 categories that people send in items for and then they hostess divides them up and each person receives a kit to work with. Everyone also sends in 5.00 worth of goodies for the winner to walk away with. You are not allowed to use anything else outside the kit except stamps, ink, paint or anything like that. You must use 80% of the kit. I used 100% of the kit, which means that I used something from each category. Also, I painted my circle purle and inked it to add more purple to my lo. The smaller letters (font mini monograms) I cut out on my cricut and added the lime green stickles. The orange dots are french knots made from the floss. WOW! I finally get to post this to my own gallery! And I have to say that I am thrilled because I won all the goodies for this swap/contest. So, thank you to everyone that voted for my lo. (link to the ready scrap go gallery: I really do love how this turned out! I can't wait to see the goodies I won and to put them to good use!! I REALLY needed a pick me up for my spirit and scrappy tresures always give me a lift!
