Hello dear friends~ I am so glad you chose to stop in today, and I truly thank you for taking time to visit my blog.
There is something troubling me, and I really don't know how to approach this except just to say it;
My mother is very ill.
She has been weak for quite some time and very inactive. She has also battled cancer for years
and it is taking it's toll on her and my dad - her care giver~
Life has been so full of challenges for me; especially these past 6 years. So much "trying of my faith" and so much testing of myself- my courage and strength . . .
And all with 'just enough time' in-between to keep me from truly falling under the weight. Perhaps that is a bit dramatic; but maybe a little justified too.
And what of blogging? I've been away so long, and lately wanting to follow my heart and get back into 'creating' and sharing things with all of you. But serious and difficult things can re-align us!
and lead us "elsewhere" once again.
Some of us blog to share art, some to share life lessons and stories, and many - to do both! And my heart is here, but
my 'life' may not lend to it right now. We shall see~
I may need to go back to Colorado soon (temporarily) and help any way I can. I should know soon.
So for now, I will share 'past' posts and creations, and that will have to be enough for me : )
Thank you for looking!
They met in 6th grade. YES! And fell in love and never looked back <3
I made this collage as a small gift for her several years ago. A layer of cardboard & heavy cardstock, layers of scrapbook papers, lace, linen stamping and distressing~
Here they are on wedding day of course. Isn't she so beautiful!?
This is a page from a small album that I actually made for - - myself! It holds wedding pics from both mine and my late husbands family. Perhaps I can share more from the album another time~
My page here is a mix of ribbon, layered paper, a painted chipboard butterfly, and all the
flowers were hand made by me. I really enjoyed creating this.~ <3
I'm hoping to enter this page into Wen's Simply Neutral Tuesday party~
I wish you would take a moment and stop in to see what she is sharing from other bloggers in the way of "neutrals" just click on --> http://appleapricot.blogspot.com/
Thank you so much for peeking in! I appreciate you : ) and hope you have a blessed and beautiful day~
Love and hugs, Karen O
