I'm Here

My sweet husband passed away March 11, 2013.  It was a short, but long, battle with melanoma.  I have not crafted since we found out about his diagnosis in October.  I have no desire to do so now.  However, I am told to not be hasty and to let life just take over for a while.  So that is what I am doing.  My craft room looks like it hasn't been touched in months!  (It hasn't!)  I haven't moved anything in there.  It is just as messy as when I left it so long ago.  Maybe one day the creative juices will flow again and I will jump right back into it, but until then, I just want to say thank you to all of you who have been visiting my blog.  There is nothing new here, but maybe something older will inspire you in some way.  Until I begin again, or if I begin again, happy crafting!


  1. Sending hugs and prayers, sweet lady! Just lean on the good Master, your family & friends and you will get through. Life will continue, albeit slightly askew for a while. We will be here for you when you feel like returning to play once again.


  2. Life is different, isn't it? It hasn't set in for me yet. I keep thinking he's here in the back of my mind. I'm not sure I'll ever come to the full realization.

  3. I was diagnosed in March 2014 with cancer, went through a 6 1/2 hour surgery, and I just finished almost four months of chemotherapy. I too haven't been on my blog or made any cards since all this started. I hope to soon, but it takes time to recoup. I feel bad that you've lost your husband...that's something very difficult to go through. Take your time and when the time is right for you to start crafting again, you'll know.
    Prayers to you and your family :)
