Scrapping and friends

Life for me at the moment is a bit of an emotional roller coaster. I'm in the process of clearing Dad's house at the moment as it has been sold so life is a tad weird.
Isn't it good to have lovely friends and crafty projects to lose yourself in?
last weekend was spent in the company of some very special ladies at Ann's crop. It was so nice to catch up with Deb and Karen
Ann had organised a lovely lunch and designed a gorgeous class 
We really had  a great day - penguin was very well behaved (most of the time) he did steal some of my crisps at one point though  tut......

I had a lovely delivery on Friday all the way from the U S of A and I'm dying to show you it..hope to get a photo today...and I will be name dropping !

That's hard. Very hard. I'll be continuing to think about you over the next few weeks as it all goes through..

Thinking of you at this difficult time and sending you crafty hugs. It's good you've been able to spend time with such a special bunch of friends. Keep putting one foot in front of the other and working on your new adventures.
Hugs, Buttons x

So hard, clearing a loved one's house! I hope you find some wonderful treasures to remember your Dad by.

Oh that is a difficult thing to do - it really makes your loss hit home even more. Consider yourself hugged and I hope your memories help to sustain you in the days, weeks and months ahead.

I know how difficult that is....sending you hugs.
A gorgeous LO of the two of you.

I know how hard you are finding things at the moment and hope that once the house is cleared it gets better. The name dropping doesn't involve the letters T H does it?

You have made a beautiful layout Denise. I do know how you feel-such a sad & difficult time. My thoughts are with you. Sx

Penguin's going to be beside himself when he finds out his photo is on your blog!
If you check out my blog today (Monday) you'll find an award waiting for you :-)

That is such a gorgeous LO of you & your Dad...try & remember the happy times while you're clearing out, I know it all seems so final but I'll bet there will be good memories brought to the surface too...thinking of you. {{hugs}} :)
