Sympathy Tulips

I always find it difficult to make a sympathy card.  It may be because the loss of a friend or loved one is difficult to process, or not knowing what to say to someone who has lost a loved one.

This past weekend I attended the funeral of a dear friend’s husband.  He had been a combat veteran and left behind a wife and kids.  The wife requested no flowers in lieu she requested donations be made to a Go Fund Me.  It is a very long and heart wrenching story and can only pray she and her children find peace and resolution to their struggles.

Since she requested no flowers I gave her flowers.  Well, my way of giving flowers.  Tulips because they are happy and hope they may bring a little smile to her and her children.

I made this card with Sue Wilson dies and the image cut with my Silhouette Cameo.  I, absolutely, love the PixScan mat!  Boy, does it beat fussy cutting images.

Thanks for stopping by my little corner.

 

Hugs,

Kim

Welcome!

Hi, welcome to my new blog, my Corner of Crazy. Well, that is my world.   So, why not share it.

I’m Kim, by the way. I am married with 2 grown kids and 1 grand daughter, who I believe is the best. And, a house full of fur babies who keep us laughing and busy.

My life is full of challenges and want to share how I cope and hope get feedback on how others cope with the same challenges.

I have Multiple Sclerosis (diagnosed 2006). Currently, I am doing ok, but have my ups and downs. I manage it with medications and humor. If I lose my humor, then I really have a problem.

I am also the caregiver for my husband with PTSD.   Believe me, it is an experience trying to get someone twice your size to take their medications when they believe they are just fine. Fortunately, we haven’t had this issue in a long time, but it has happened and let me tell you I didn’t ask for that “E” ticket ride! But, we got through that rocky patch and he is on a smooth patch right now (fingers crossed).

You will find me sharing pictures of my quilting and paper crafts. These hobbies keep me sane and I find some peace while working with them.

This is a short and sweet introduction. With each post you will get a larger peek into my crazy world.

This is one of the fur babies, Lucy.
