So my next post is just CSI Case File 151 and it includes a sketch by the uber gorgeous Em.
Here is what I did with it.
Scheme : Check
Evidence : frame, string, loops, texture paste
Testimony : I used the IW attitude and reluctant
My journaling is behind the pink "pouch"
A little while ago, when life returned to normal after the Festive Season had run its course and school started, I had the opportunity to finally have some time alone. The responsibility of looking after and entertaining Isabella was not consuming me, as she had been at school. I just sat myself down on the couch to be still - because I have been SO busy distracting myself from the inevitable - FACING LIFE.
I am reluctant to admit that there is a stubborn, headstrong part of me that is ready to admit “You Got This”. It’s during the odd occasions when optimism rears its head, that I feel like this.
I’ve put so much in place already and done so much planning for my and Isabella’s future. Control Freak, much?
I know that facing this mourning period is all about attitude. EVERYTHING is all about your attitude - how you approach it. I’m just finding it incredibly hard to have a good attitude. To find a positive side to the tragedy of having lost my one true love. My soul mate. My anchor.
I KNOW what you want from me. I just know it. I know you want me to be happy (eventually) and that you don’t want me to wallow (too much). I know you love Isabella and I; and that it is up to me and me alone to ensure that we can get through this.
It’s just really hard.
And now for some close-ups.
I love stitching. Love, love, love. The end.
The pink paper is almost like a thin tissue - beautiful. Chippie has just been inked.
I love this string - totally works with you - no fighting required!
The frame is also a chippie, inked.
I miss him so much.
