Me and Grandma at Niagra Falls

Hello Everyone - Sorry to have been MIA lately - but my Grandmother recently lost her battle with cancer.

My Grandmother was a huge inspiration in many areas of my life but I will especially miss her unfailing enthusiasm of crafting.  She was always my best cheerleader and was so happy to have something to share and to teach me.  Not only was she a big reason I got started in card making, but also taught me to knit and crochet. 

Growing up, my Grandmother, being Agorophobic, never ventured farther than her yard, but in the last year of her life, we were able to find medication to help her.  We were lucky enough to be able to open the world back up to her again, and boy was it fun!  I am so happy to have had the chance to have these memories to remind  me - I will miss her greatly.

Thank you Grandma - it was fun!


  1. I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. May the memories of your grandmother bring smiles and happy thoughts today and always! Praying for your family!!

    Lord, I pray for Tracy's family--as they are grieving the loss of their grandmother. I pray that she knew you and that they will meet her again in Heaven one day. Lord, I know you hear our cries and see each tear that falls...and I pray for your loving arms to wrap around this family giving them peace and comfort during this difficult time. I thank you for Jesus and his sacrifice for our sins! THANK YOU for loving us and never leaving us:) Amen.

  2. Your grandmother was so proud of the work you did on your cards. I'm glad to see you post more of your work. That would make her happy. You did a great job caring for her while she was still here. She always looked forward to Monday and Friday each week. I am also very proud of you!!!


Thanks for dropping by!
