Crop and birthday celebration

come check it out!

Scrappy therapy

Have i mentioned how therapeutic scrapping is? There's something about taking your fears and concerns and inner thoughts and putting them on paper that just makes it that much easier to release them. Its a closure thing i think... When i find that i've prayed and prayed and prayed and talked to dh endlessly, and talked to friends, and still can't seem to get past something, its time to scrap it. That is why last night i made "Grieving an invisible person" Now i must warn you, if you have a history of miscarraige or are really sensitive, you might not want to look at this. I wrote a poem and its very direct, i think and i'd hate to stir up issues in anyone, but i wanted to share 1. for the benefit of potentially helping someone else learn to scrap therepeutically, and 2. for the purpose of finishing the closure process for me (and of course what good is making something if you don't SHOW others! :)

Anyway, here it is. you can click on the picture to see the poem better.

So much going on...

i haven't posted in a while. Life's been crazy. Grandpa Danny came and stayed with us for a couple weeks. My good friend Juanita was in the hospital for almost a week with multiple pulmonary emboli. She's out now but still has the same problem so please pray for her continued health. Its a very dangerous situation. Also i suspected i was pregnant last week, had the symptoms, was a week "late" and Saturday evening i began miscarrying. The big clot finally passed yesterday and i've been dealing with that basically since i realized what was going on, around tuesday. Thankfully i don't have to have anything medically done, which is a real blessing because i have "issues" surrounding strangers in my business. I'm struggling and trying to distract myself. If i think about it I get sad. WHat blows me away is i didn't WANT to get pregnant. We kinda dropped the ball on our charting this month, (we use NFP) And basically we are cool with whatever... we figure we'll probably have more kids and we'll welcome any that come, but i would love to lose some weight first... get in shape? pay off some bills?? anyway, hanging in there and today i'm going to make a serious effort to scrap. my mojo has flown away again. this might help though!! i have found this new kit club you all HAVE to check out!!!

doesn't it look FAB??? and the price can't be beat!!

Ok, so anyway, gotta run, lunch time. Take care all ye my faithful few :-)
