It's been FOREVER and a day since I have blogged. I have so much to update on!!
My grandmother, Mary Jane, just passed away on Dec. 13th. It was so sudden! She did have Alzheimer's disease, however physically she was in better health than most 75 year olds (or 50 year olds, for that matter). I lived with her from the time I was seven until I was fourteen. I used to sit with her during the day before she went into the nursing home. I would haul scrap supplies down to her house, and scrap in the floor beside her recliner. She loved to watch me make pages! She would ask me "Now, what are you making?"
Dad had to admit her into a nursing home, and my stepmother got a call that she had fallen. They did not divulge how serious her injury was, but simply told Lisa, "She just cut her forehead." We later got a phone call from the hospital, whose purpose of calling was to "gather the family". When Kaleb and I got there, there was no hope of recovery. They were "keeping her comfortable". When I saw that there was not even stitches in her forehead, I knew there was no hope. She had a "midline shift" and a very severe brain bleed. She died a couple hours later, and I am glad she didn't have any pain. And of course, the nursing home is giving us no answers....
Here is a pic of my little Granny. This was taken at Christmas of 2007. Needless to say, it was a sad time at Christmas without her.
I guess I have been in a scrappin' funk for awhile because of the sadness. I think I am finally getting my mojo back however. I am also busy with the new Secret Sister's Swap, and we have had a great turnout this time around. Hopefully we will be doing another circle journal. Here are some pages from my first one:

and here are some random digi pages. I have been a digi/hybrid MACHINE in the past couple of days:
Thanks so much for taking a peek!
