A lot has happened......

.....I owe all of my blogging friends an explanation.....sorry I've been MIA without posting any creations for way too long.
My son was involved in a house fire in December. His house caught on fire around his fireplace in the wee early hours of the morning. To make a long story short, my son caught on fire, was critically burned and transported by helicopter to a burn unit. My son fought very hard to recover from his burns but lost his life after 30 days in the burn unit ICU.
I have been struggling to be creative .... I am getting better every day. Cutting paper, stamping images, laying out ideas for cards and scrapbook pages is starting to be the perfect therapy for me.
I will be posting and sharing my creations later on this week....that's my promise to all of you. I am also planning to post teaching tutorials in the future. I also have been creating handmade cards & albums for customers & craft fairs. A few of my long distance/online card customers will place an order and supply me with an address for me to mail it for them.
I have been meditating, praying and healing since my son's death. I apologize to you all for being absent. I promise to be making & mailing cards, creating scrapbook layouts, and sharing with you here on my blog.
Thank you for stopping in....thank you for understanding.
