Catch up

Sorry I have been away a while again and not commented in everyone's blogs lately, I just seem to meet myself going the other way sometimes lately. Anyway, here are the last few layouts I did at the Craft Den, I haven't found time to do any myself at home for a while, I may need to remedy that this weekend, although I've got another busy one on. My visits to Craft Den are a lovely bright spot in my week where I can relax and do a bit of crafting and have a laugh!

Last Saturday was the 1 year anniversary of my friend Caroline passing away at the age of 35. I saw a lovely quote on another blog today and I think it's a good thing to bear in mind when we have sad times: that having sad times also allows us to see the joy in life as well,and that life will always move on if we let it.

The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person, who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. Be ALIVE while you are alive.

The one thing Caroline was, was full of life, so I will try to remember her with laughter now and not with tears.
