yummy Lunch

Today I got a little crafting in. Unfortunately it wasn't something that I looked forward on working on. It is a sympathy card for my nephew and his wife, for the loss of their baby.
As I was working on it I had so many thoughts going in my mind. I didn't want the "in sympathy" to stand out, even though that is what the card is. I felt like if it wasn't prominent that maybe it wouldn't be as sad. Then I realized that I did it in pink. Maybe it should have been in a different colour. But I just grabbed the colour without thought.
I had to walk away from this for a bit as I started to really cry, and get upset. I said to myself, I should be making a Congrats on your new baby girl, not a sympathy card.

I was debating on sharing this on here today, but this blog is also about my life and these were my thoughts and feelings today.

On to some happier thoughts.
I did go out for lunch with my SIL, Sharon. It was delish. Love Montana's. I brought my camera in order to take pictures of our meals. But I forgot. I guess when I saw the food all thought flew out of my mind and focused on eating.
After lunch we went to Michael's. I got a green distress ink as I don't have this colour. Actually green and orange are not my favorite colours. But for some reason I want to make a mini book in greens. Go figure.

Ashley and her friend Lisa did another photo shoot today. I have no idea what the pictures are, but I can't wait until she uploads them.

I did a boo boo today.
Kristy had a dentist appointment at 4:15 today. She gets home at 4:10. I forgot to tell her I was picking her up from school. I asked Ashley what time high school gets out. Well Ashley was incorrect. LOL. I phone Kristy, thinking she is waiting for the bus. She answers the phone and I tell her that I am coming to pick her up. She whispers "Now". Yes I reply.
Well it turns out she still had about 20 mins of class left. Ooops.
So after school I phoned to apologise to the teacher.
Teacher giggles. And tells me she is the last person I have to apologise to, as she also checks her texts in class. Oh Okay.
I know Kristy should not have had her phone on in class, let alone answer it. Believe me I do not condone that. I hate cell phones in general. I know they have there place, but it seems that there place is more acceptable everywhere and at any time.
Ok rant over. As I could go on and on and on. LOL

So that was my Wednesday, hope you had a good one.



  1. I just want you to know that your blog is good enough. I enjoy your posts.


  2. I can't even image, my sympathy's to your family. Your right, it should have been Welcome Baby, so hard. It's a lovely card.

  3. I'm so sorry for your family's loss. How sad.

    (I enjoy reading your posts, too!)

  4. Hi Tracy
    The sympathy card is lovely, but such a sad time. I like stopping by and reading what you've been up to.
    Happy crafting
    Tracy x

  5. Your card is quite lovely. It is nice of you to make one for them even though this is such a hard one to make!

  6. Still so sorry, Tracy. So very difficult for everyone. A pretty card. I am sure they appreciated it. It is hard any which way.

    Cell phones in our schools, the middle school...can't have them on you at all. If it even looks like it, they will search you. If you have it, they take it away and only on Thurs. it can be picked up by the parents at a certain time, no exceptions. If your parents can not pick it up at that time, too bad. You have to wait until next Thursday.

    The High School, you can have them on you, but off. You can use them in a certain area, during lunch, that is it. If you get caught, it will be taken away as well. Very strict here.

    I have always hated cell phones, but now....I am one of them (so to speak). I have it for safety first of all, living out of town...but also for convenience. If we need something while the other is shopping, etc. My kids have one for safety and when going to friends or call me to get them when they are ready. No TEXTING for any of us thou. I had it disabled. They love me for that one. HA! I can't stand that texting. I see so many other obsessed with it and I said if I ever got one, no texting. I told the kids if they want texting, they have to pay for it. Mean Mom, I know. LOL

    Have a great day, Tracy.

  7. I am very sorry for your family's loss.

  8. Your card is lovely and sweet and I am sure that they will appreciate it very much. I am so, so, sorry for your family's loss.

  9. I am so sorry to hear about your nephew and his wife. The card is beautiful. Thank you for your kind comments on my blog about my mini, I appreciate it!

  10. Tracy,
    your card is beautiful and I am sure it will touch their hearts that you took the time to tell them you love them and wish there was more you could do.
    I love the honesty of your blog and yes, I agree you don't even look forty. So NOT fair!


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
