What a week it has been!

I apologize to everyone expecting artwork. It has been one of those weeks! I am sure most of you can relate at some level or another. :) I started a new medication the week before last and I think I am finally getting all the kinks (side effects) worked out with it. I have felt overwhelmed and have been fighting a serious case of declining mojo. I was all set to get up and get right to work in my scraproom this morning only to get a phone call with bad news. My ex-mother-in-law, Beth, who is very dear to me passed away this morning after a very long and courageous battle with cancer. I will miss her dearly. She has been a part of my life since I was 15 years old and taught me many things that my own mother didn't or couldn't. She was loving, smart, funny, and had a no-nonsense/common sense way about her. I knew I could always call on her for advice or help when I needed it. Even though my marriage to her son did not work out, because of her I am a better wife, mother, and person. I hope I can be as good as her when I "grow up". Here's to you Mom - I love you and will miss you very much!

P.S. I have a craft show next month that I REALLY need to start preparing for. So stay tuned for more artwork next week after we are back from the funeral.

Sorry for your loss Jen, We were glad that you were able to make it out to her funeral. It is hard to bury someone one that we love and respect.
