We haven’t been writing lately because sadly, we have experienced a great loss in our family. We lost a mother and aunt last week and have been trying to make sense of this great loss in our lives.
My mother was very sick and taken away far too soon in life from complications due to a long existing disease with the acronym C.R.E.S.T. associated with scleroderma and pulmonary hypertension. She always looked at her health ailments as obstacles which she would overcome and fight with determination and great strength.
We are dealing with this loss in our family as best as we can and will be celebrating her life this coming Sunday.
Throughout all of this time, we are able to honour her memory by continuing to make things beautiful. Idle hands have been put to use assembling photo boards and family and friends will be fed with homemade desserts from family recipes. We have also been receiving many beautiful things in return including beautiful flower arrangements, gift baskets, homemade meals dropped off, sympathy cards… and the list goes on.
Thank you to those who support us and know that we’ll be back on here soon with great tutorials and how-to’s and updating you on our projects and love of beautiful things.
We lost a beautiful person, a close follower of our blog and someone we love dearly…
