So it’s a bit calm here on my blog lately…that’s because I’m really busy as we’re in the very last days of deciding which company will be building our house… In these busy times of change (and a lot is changing/is going to change, not just the house part) I find myself reflecting the past…and while I usually focus on the happy times, there are also some not so nice memories that are very dear to my heart…
…like the death of my Grandma, who I spent a lot of time with as a child. I still think of her often and sometimes still can’t believe I’m never seeing her again, even though her death was a decade ago…
You know, you just live with it and don’t get too involved with thoughts about how much you miss someone long gone.
But sometimes it hits you. To me it’s when I watch special movies or listen to a certain song…
…or when I pass the street where she used to live. It’s still a strange feeling to go there and I try to avoid it usually..
But a few weeks ago I thought it would be good for me to document my feelings, so I went there and took a picture of the door she used to enter everyday..and that’s what the following layout is all about.
I wanted the mood to be calm, but with some hints of colour and also a little vintage touch (had this plaque forever and a day and never used it)..
Used mist, enamel dots, a RubOn feather and lots of other small pieces..
Journalled about my feelings and how I still miss her and love her.. and forever will actually.. :)
So hope you have a nice Friday! I’m going to see a female comedian tonight with my Mum, hope it will be fun! :)
