Good morning! I must apologize for the lack of posts recently and my inability to stamp. It’s been very hectic around the Cheever Household over the last few weeks and just when I thought things were going to ease up, we had another setback. Late last Thursday night we received a phone call that my mother-in-law had collapsed at church. While I made a pot of coffee and a go cup for Mr. Stodgy, he was getting dressed and heading out the door. It is a four-hour drive to where he had to go, and minutes meant a great deal at that time. Unfortunately my mother-in-law passed away early Friday morning, but all her boys were able to be by her side thank goodness. Today we will be celebrating her life and how she touched everyone she came in contact with. If you think of us today, think only happy thoughts . . . that’s what my mother-in-law would have wanted. She loved life and was always available with a helping hand and a kind word. I am so grateful this marvelous woman was a part of our lives!
Now let me get to my project for today. Last week I mentioned that I had been working on a special project. Beate Johns asked me to write a tutorial for Splitcoaststampers on how I make my snowflake medallions. I also had to do my first video so please be understanding when you watch it. Quite frankly I like videos but have been scared to do my own. Now that the jitters have been abated, I’m sure I’ll be doing more!
