Heartbroken!

Hello lovely peeps,
I have just a quick post to share tonight & am sending my apologies for leaving my little blog idle  this past week.
Some of you will already know that my beautiful mum passed away last Thursday at the age of 65, leaving us all very shocked and heartbroken.
 
My mum was my number one fan and kept every handmade item I created for her, even my feeble attempts at card making when I started this hobby we love. Mum always read my blog & was so proud of me designing for the wonderful Simon Says Stamp.
I know if my mum could she would be telling me to dry my tears, publish some blog posts, get out my copics and make something beautiful :)
 
 
I will be back with you all soon

 
Gareth, Mum & Jodie

  1. So sorry to hear your news Mandy. It's so nice to hear your mum loved what you did and enjoyed reading your blog. I lost my dad last year so I know how you feel. He too was so proud of my craft magazine work and my blog. He always said I got my art/craft skills from him, he never drew or crafted anything, ever! :) Give yourself a little time and you'll know when the time is right to start crafting and blogging again. x Colette
