If at First You Don't Succeed...

Yesterday was a tough day.  John's Aunt Gerri passed away. She was always smiling, always caring, and didn't take herself too seriously. If we ever wanted to feel loved, all we had to do was call Ma tante Germaine. She was always excited to hear from us and showed how much she appreciated our time together.

I tangled for hours and it helped.  I finished the 10 ATCs and then was able to talk about it.  

So, today I decided to try the Diva Challenge again.  This one I like.  Hope you do too.

Have a joyful Thanksgiving.  As always, thanks for visiting and happy tangling.

  8. I am sorry to read about your loss, Chris -fantastic that you have fun memories like this recorded to reflect back on. It's great that you had another go at the challenge, particularly if you weren't happy with the first round - I have trouble letting a challenge go if I can't nail it. LOL. But that may be just me.Your peanuckle/well combo looks terrific. I love how your photograph has caught the glittery goodness.

  9. Oh, my, that's hard. So sorry. I love the colors. I didn't know her, but anyone who'll wear a duct tape hat with a genuine smile is "good people".
