I am scrapping again - WOO HOO

This was the fabulous Kit I had to work with this month in Treasured Scrapbooking

And these are the creations I made with it...

My Altered Photo Album from the dollar store - turned into a desk Calendar

Maybe not my very best work, but I am proud of them anyway. I definitely struggled to get back into scrapbooking again - it seems my creativity was missing for a little while. But I have more to show and some more I can't show yet...I will be back with some more stuff very soon.

Trying To Heal

Thank you again to all of you that sent well wishes and prayers - I am hanging in there. I still have some pretty bad days - I suppose I will for awhile yet - but it is getting a little better. I miss my hobby...or addiction better known as scrapbooking - I haven't played in a couple weeks now. It is rather difficult jumping back into it again - mood has so much control over us - but I am going to attempt to EASE back into it. I do have some super delicious NEW products from my DT kit at Treasured Scrapbooking that is calling to me - time to get back a few pieces of "me". Wish me luck - and hopefully my next post will be happily showing off my creations. I am going to leave you all this week with a couple of pictures of my family - have a great week.

New Year 2009

So today is the first day of 2009 - so many mixed emotions for me. My life has changed drastically in the last few days - and it is changed forever. My son was in a severe car accident in the early morning hours of 12-28-08 - and yes alcohol was involved. My son will be ok physically, he is banged up and bruised - but he will live. One of his friends - a boy that I have known personally for 18 yrs now - was not so lucky - he passed away on 12-29-08 from extreme head injuries. My heart just aches, I am so devastated - EVERYONE is so devastated. The ripple effects of this accident are tremendous - and there are so many unanswered questions. I don't know who was driving and it really does not matter at this very moment - all of those boys made very poor decisions that night. I do know that the boy that died has a 4 yr old son that will never see his father again. I do know there are a lot of angry - hurt people in this small community - I do know that our lives will never be the same. There is so much more than what I am writing - I just don't know how to write it.

I want to thank everyone that has reached out to me, sent messages, and said prayers. You all have been a great comfort to me and I feel the love. I have not taken the time to talk to very many people or answer emails, etc. But I am reading them and I do appreciate them greatly. I have to end this message with a strong warning...DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE - and DON'T LET YOUR FRIENDS DRINK AND DRIVE!!
