Some cards are harder to make than other. I’ve always had mixed feelings about sympathy cards because I felt those of the hardest words to share with the other person, don’t necessarily need dressing up. The tragedy that made this particular card happen affects me personally and the recipient is very dear to my heart. I felt the need to create for her, and include a message inside that would be well composed, saying everything I want to say without struggling to find the correct words in a face-to-face conversation. I created it having a very dear person in mind who is here no more, and it was beautifully cathartic.
I haven’t checked in for another long week and while there’s been plenty of valid reasons, I’ve been itching to stamp. This time just as much a creative therapy as a source of relaxation, because a recent death in the family shook my world quite hard. Yet again crafting proved a soothing distraction.
Hello, good to see you after a long-ish break! Today I’m pleased to join my talented friend Tracey McNeely for a Day #4 of 25 Days of Christmas Tags feature on her blog.
Popping in quickly to announce the winner of the two stamps sets of choice from the Altenew October release blog hop (post here).
Hi guys, first of all thank you so much for the comments left for my Altenew Blog Hop post below. It’s not as much as the sheer multitude of them, but the thoughtfulness and the fact that so many took your time to leave meaningful feedback, means a lot to someone who knows first hand how much effort it takes to fit commenting in one’s busy life. Muchos gracias, amigos!
Welcome to Altenew’s third Blog Hop! It’s my pleasure to join Tasnim and Jennifer this month, along with some fabulous creative minds.
