Today I feel kind of okay and trying my hardest to get back to normal. I went back to work yesterday and just throw myself to work. Not easy, I am telling ya. I'll be in the middle of typing something and holly molly I just burst into tears. What helps is every time I did that, part of my brain start saying, you know Ling, dad probably watching from above and he probably rolled his eyes and said again??! :) And he'll say something silly to make me stop crying. As I think of what he might say that makes me smile. I really think laughter or humor is important to maintain even when you go through tough times. I think it's going to be like this for a while.
So, to cheer myself and to distract myself, at night when it's calm and quiet, I just put all my focus and energy into card making. I recently found Market Street Stamps and won this Slow Movin' set from their February release. I love snail images, so of course, I was excited when I won this.
And, when I get inky and play with it... oh my... LOVE....! It stamps smoothly and the quality of the rubber is so awesome. Seriously, my heart leap a bit when I stamped and saw the result. After just trying this one set, I am a fan of Market Street Stamps. What I love even more, this snail made me smile. It's just so sweet.
I decided to make the snail movable. And here's the result.
Paper Take Weekly - 3 of Something (mine: 3 stamped items)
Stampavie and More - Spring/Easter
The Outlawz - Animals
I love this snail so much, that I inky another one and play with glimmer mist as well (my first time and I love it!). Yesterday, I found out that Latrice, whom I met at CHA last year is collecting card for one of her co-worker who's son has leukimia. You can find details about Gavin HERE. I am sending this card to Gavin and hopefully this will make him smile.
As these cards brings smile to me, I know with time, slowly the healing process will continue and things will get better. Like my dad used to say, "Everything will be okay." :) As always... take the time to tell your love ones you love them! Have a blessed day.
