Back to my First Love


Hey again, I am finding much needed comfort in my blog these days. I am dealing with the loss of a family member right now, we were close as kids and then you kind of go along your own path. But.. We always had a special connection that began from the time he was born, and that will never be forgotten. I think just knowing I won’t be able to say remember when… or make new memories is what makes my heart ache most.

It’s all been a bit crazy, and today I just had to STOP! I needed half hour for myself, and I thought what I could do in that short time that makes me really happy. The answer was simple.. Create something pretty. Then my son reminded me out of no where how the cute little notes I put in his lunch bag always cheered his day, when he started his new school. So I thought creating something small, maybe for my daughter’s lunch sometime soon.

My cousin was an artist, he painted beautifully, and my jaw always dropped when I’d have the chance to see his stuff. Maybe that is why I felt sort of connected to him tonight.  Here’s my beauty:


I am entering this in the Saturated Canary Challenge theme is Shaped card, It’s a circle and I layered all kinds of other shapes over it. See what happens when a girl doesn’t get to do what her heart loves best for a very long time. I went a bit overboard with the embellishments; the only thing I kept in mind was shape and happiness. Hope you all enjoy, and hope to be back soon. ~ Angela
