If you haven't noticed yet (see link in sidebar), I decided to join the ranks of Etsy & opened my very own shop :) I'll admit, I was nervous at first, but I thought this would be a way for me to start selling some of the things I've been creating. I have a lot more stuff to add.....just haven't had the time to do it yet. So keep checking back & wish me lots of luck. And feel free to buy something, too if you want :)
Today's challenge on 2 Peas really hit home for me: "Do you try to memorialize someone that has passed in a special way? If so how..." I have a very special curio cabinet in which I display treasures & momentos of my sister Karen & brother-in-law Jimmy. Inside this cabinet are photos of them, a Coca Cola clock, a stained glass owl light, several owl figurines, jewelry, a Harley patch, Karen's Tupperware nametag & business card plus things from the funeral (a bag of dirt from the gravesite & ribbons from the flowers). I also have a t-shirt of Karen's, but haven't figured out a way to display it inside the curio yet. I miss them both so much! Not a day goes by that I don't think about them! Thanks for posting this challenge, Maureen.....it brought tears to my eyes, but sometimes I need that to cope.
This weekend, I'm doing some more organizing of my scrap space.....nothing major, though. I already rearranged my albums plus I went through some papers & purged. Then I'm also re-altering my Ikea Fira drawer units. I decided that I just didn't like the fronts of them anymore, so I'm changing them. My wonderful hubby even helped me remove the alphabets that I had adhered to them & then sealed with mod podge. Isn't he sweet??? :) I have so many projects going on at once right now that I'm probably crazy for starting those, too, but I just couldn't help myself.....not to mention, I'm impatient & when I want to do something, I want to do it NOW! LOL
Just a short post for now.....I'm pooped, so I'm off to bed. Hope you have a great weekend! I should have some new layouts & things to post next time I update.
