Sew Good....

blogged by me domestic goddess On 3/14/2006 09:40:00 PM
What a frantic day it has been, I was in a phone meeting with Jo (Creative Scrapbooking) for the best part of 1hour 1/2, and so worth it. We have some fab articles and projects in the pipeline, I am so excited about them. Studio day to confirm in April, where the girls will be part of it!! Saying no more you will just have to wait for the issue to come out! But boy is it going to be worth it.
Waiting on a couple of more emails with regards to projects as well with another magazine, so a very busy day today.
I actually finished a layout and a matching coaster which I am really pleased with "Sweet Smile". Using lots of fabric, machine and hand stitching, Junkitz girl papers and Basic Grey Oh Baby Girl monograms. I love this range of papers, cant wait to scrap a LO with them.

Today , has actually been a tough one for our family, in fact a very emotional week or so.
Peters father passed away a year ago today, and all our emotions have been frayed and strained. Peter is definitely showing the signs of hurt and anger, and this has been the case with us all. It has been a hard week for me to keep in close contact with very close friends as we have all needed some space. As well as the sadness that has been with us, the jubilations of lots of things happening in my career, has meant a real roller coaster of emotions, as my dear neighbor found out this morning as I landed on her doorstep with a tear stained face, and 1 dressed Izzy. But you know, when she saw me later that day, she summed it all up. The operation, today and then the news I received last week, has been a tough emotional ride, and she is so right!!!
I will be glad to see this week out the way, so we can try and piece our family together, and I can stop smiling with joy one minute and crying the next, LOL
So back to life, back to reality........... And tomorrow is another day, another day in the life of a scrapping mum!

hugs to all

PS: excuse the quality of LO, just cant photograph white!

    Hugs to you hun,

    Take care and it will get easier. Bear with Peter he will be back to normal soon, men don't cope brilliantly with emotions but with your help he will be fine

    Hi Luv, I am so sorry to hear you are having such a bad week ... things will get better - I can understand cause I've been in your position. My hubby lost his mum the year before my operation, so I get what is happening - and I know from experience that it will all be ok, you have to look for the little "good" things and take baby steps. Keep your chin up
    luv Chanel
    p.s. and do things that make you happy, even if they seem silly - chocolate always helps too! :-)
