How Blessed Are We | CSI

Hi friends,

It feels like absolute ages since I have blogged right here – and indeed, since I’ve spent time in my art room.  Life has been so crazy, but I’m happy to say that things are beginning to slow down and I can finally spend more time in my room.

TWO shares today – but my piece that I want to share with you right now, is for CSI: Color Stories Inspiration.  This is a colour palette that reminded me of macaroons!  Gorgeous icy pastels!  Em has designed yet another fabulous sketch for this one too; love that I got to use THREE photographs to create this piece.

Here is what I did.

Scheme : all there

Evidence : flowers & leaves, text print, cursive title, triangles, decorative border

Testimony : Weekend Mental Health writing prompt – The Healing Has Begun

Never in my wildest of dreams could I have imagined the journey that we had to take when daddy passed away.  I knew it would be hard – and it still is at times.  I knew there would be sadness – there still is.  I knew that there would be emotional troubles affecting us and our decisions – there still is, but we’re dealing with them as they come.  In truth, it is becoming easier as time goes by; as time heals all wounds.  I am blogging less and less on my Dear Beary blog.  I am crying less; though I have moments of missing him that knocks the breath from my lungs.  But I just cannot look past my blessings.  I have the most amazing child, who I love endlessly and would do absolutely anything and everything for.  I am so very fortunate to have a second great love.  A man that supports me, makes me smile, makes me laugh all the time, understands and accepts our situation and all the baggage that comes along with it.  A man that adores my daughter to the ends of the Earth and treats her as he would his own.  Family that support me wholeheartedly and I know are always, always there for me.  With all the troubles I have been through, I have the love and support to match it – and then some. I really, really am so very blessed!
