Part of the healing process included making a card again. I honestly thought a few months ago that I would never want to craft again. I cleaned out my craft room, stored my craft stuff in containers and hauled them all out to storage. I also started selling a bunch of my craft items on Ebay and I am still selling them. A few days ago, I thought of making a card without feeling sad so I decided to take a crack at it. I actually felt good making the card.
I've decided to sell at least half of my craft stuff and keep the ones that I really would have difficulties replacing. Fortunately, I left a few items at home rather than storing them but the amount of supplies I currently have are quite limited. No Spellbinder dies, Cuttlebug embossing folders, Copic Markers, etc. They're all in storage. What I do have at home are a few card stock, rubber stamps that I was meaning to sell, a few designer papers, a few ink pads, a limited amount of ribbons and embellishments, paper cutter, tape and paper shaper scissors. It's interesting that with a limited amount of supplies, it's really quite easy to make a card. I found that I really don't need all the gadgets and tons and tons of designer paper and tools to make a card.
This card I dedicate to all my friends and family who have been such blessings to me. I've received such wonderful support and I am so grateful for them. They've held me up in my darkest moments and with the grace of God, I am actually doing okay. Life is moving forward. . .although, I still have a lot of things to do and a lot more changes will occur in my life, I am managing pretty well and I still have a lot of good moments. A few months ago I really doubt it could happen but with lots of prayers, my faith in God, friends and family support. . .I believe everything will be all right.
I decided to re-open my Etsy Shop and also continue to sell more craft items on Ebay. Please stop by and check out the items I'm selling. I'll be listing new items on a regular basis so if you don't see anything you like at the moment, please check in regularly to view any new items I've listed.
The card sentiment says:
Thank You. . .
For always being there
and for your love and understanding
I dedicate my card to all my friends and family. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
