Hi Lovely Blogging Friends...
Firstly, apologies as I've been MIA this week... I've not been getting to see any blogs etc as my mind has been elsewhere. Sadly, my eldest brother passed away on Monday - and it's knocked me sideways a bit. He hadn't been in the best of health for a little while - but we all thought he was invincible as he was managing to get through and live with problems that others would have given up on long ago. He was a fair few years older than me (he was 80), and we didn't see each other that often... but I'll miss him.
Unfortunately, my anxiety problem is rearing it's head because of this - it's something I'd so love to rid myself of, but it seems that it just lies dormant for a while till next it feels like cropping up to create havoc! I'm not sure how I'll face the funeral which is this Thursday... I'll really have to put on my big girl pants and a brave face!
So..... 'merry' is something I've not really felt lately - but decided to have a go anyway yesterday at getting back into my craft room. I'd bought this little robins stamp last time I was at Samuel Taylors - and I had this design 'brewing' - know what I mean?
Image - Wild Rose Studio Robins on Branch
Dies - Oval Spellbinders, Clearly Besotted 'Merry'
Colouring - Copics
Robins - E30/31/33/34/37, R24/46/20,
Hats - R24/46, C0/1 (for fur)
Holly - YG63/G99
Branch - E37
Mirri Card, Nuvo Drops (Berry Red), Gems and Glitter
The robins proved more difficult to colour than I thought they would - and I still haven't got them right (maybe it was the frame of mind I was in) - but they are the best I can do at the mo.
Right...... time for me to do some clearing up in my craft room - it looks like a bomb has hit it!!
Big hugs to all...
