Joan

My daughter's grandmother, Joan, died last night peacefully at home with her family close by. She had been fighting a vicious battle with cancer for the passed three years.

Candace and I visited with her just last month. During that same visit, she decided to forgo any further chemo, because it was extremely harsh AND it wasn't producing very good results.

I had hoped that she would have had a little better quality of life for at least a few more months.

She was a great woman, mother, grandmother. Everyone is going to miss her.

Noone is going to feel her absence more than Jim, her husband, will. I feel such sadness for him. They've known each other ALL their lives. Married over 53 years, I think. I cannot imagine the strength it will take for him to pick himself up again each morning and carry on without her there.

For You My Friend

Dang is it ever hot, right?
Well, I spend some time crafting indoors close to the air conditioner vents.
And this little box is what I came up with.  Along with the gift inside!

Decorated and the final touch...that wonderful Pinque Peacock Stick Pin.

It matched PERFECTLY.
Anyway, hope you like it.
My friend did (and she didn't assault the box when I gave it to her!)
Have a super Saturday.
Drink lots of water....cuz if you spend anytime outdoors, it just evaporates right out of you!

Hello, everyone.  Over the weekend, I made this 12 x 12 inch printable page.  I will add another version later this week, that will have smaller and more numerous eyeballs!
