This Blog Has Moved!

I moved my blog on New Years Day, 2010. If you haven't come to see my new blog, head on over HERE now. This blog will be available for archive reading but I won't be posting here anymore. I hope you'll join me at my new bloggy home!

p.s. I am slowly but surely moving all the blogs I follow over to the new blog, so if I haven't come to visit you for a while, my advice is to leave a comment on my new blog, so I don't miss you in the shuffle!

About Me

My photo
I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...

Card: Long Stem Flower



I made this card for my auntie who turned 99 earlier this month. I made it kind of on a whim after making these cards. I had been drained of energy and ideas. I had made the flower part for another card but did not end up using it, and I had the leaves from another project as well so I ended up just taking a tiny little sliver from green paper to use as a stem.

I liked how it turned out and I think I might make a whole set of these with different color flowers to put on my etsy shop once I open it. I might even make a notebook with this. Simple to make, but pretty. Curious to know if you all like them as much as I do.

I love this card and it's simplicity. I would buy a set for my mom. She has MS and really enjoys keeping in touch with family and friends still via "snail-mail" even though it's increasingly difficult for her to write. Hope you're well!
