I'm Back! ...sorta...


I'm really sorry for my lack of posting on this blog.
My Mother in law, Susan had been really sick for the last few months
and took a spill a couple of weeks back which landed her in the hospital.
We found out that she had pancreas cancer and it was terminal. While she was in the hospital, I got most of my tears out.
I was a mess. I also discovered my "true" friends and bonded closer to family.

She came home from the hospital to her home which was ready with a bed and hospice things.
I visited her a couple days later and while she could not talk with her mouth, she spoke with her eyes when I told her how much I loved her and thanked her for my husband Brian. I said my goodbyes.
Dyllan came with me the next day and whispered that he loved her and he also said goodbye and she smiled.
I sat in her room that day with Dyllan, making wire art together.
I like to think she was glad we were there.

A couple of days later she got worse and then a week later, last Friday , June 18th, she passed away in the morning.
I'm still freaky sad.
I'm gonna really miss her.
Now some of my creative mojo has hit a speed bump,even as I've been pushing myself extra hard to finish things due at the end of the month.

So I'm back. Sorta.

I have tons of things to share with you, but not enough oomph to write with, you know?
The above photo is from this post where I had a tutorial and a giveaway.
The below photo is what I made for the giveaway.

I just wanted to have something to share with you as I know it's been awhile.

Wednesday is the last day of kindergarten for Dyllan so this week is crazy.
I won't have another post for you until this Saturday June 26th, which is the day of Vanessa's Mad Tea Party!
I've been planning this for weeks and am totally unprepared (due to current situations), but I promise it will be magical on my end with plenty of surprises to share and giveaway!

So please come back for the fun!
(and thank you for your support) :)

So sorry Michelle! I can't imagine how hard it is to know that the person you love is going away and just sit and wait for it to happen. I am sending my hugs and thoughts to you and your family. I wish I could give you a big hug in person.
