Good Morning all you WOYWW'S......where are the weeks going ,my dad last night reminded me that we go down for crimbo a4 weeks Thursday...ARRRGGGHHH.Not prepared for Crimbo what so ever.
Firstly must thank everyone for there lovely comments last week i tried to pop over and see you all most i did but if i didnt im sorry.This was due to a phone call at 11am last Wednesday from my best Friend to say that her Daughters baby girl "Summer " had been found dead in her cot this morning only 7months .So the rest of the day was a blurr,and very numb.
Anyways please read the whole post as at the bottom i have some Candy for all you WOYWW bloggers.
Anyways if youd like to be nosey this morning check out the bosses Blog Here our Julia has all the info come and join the Wednesday nosey lot.
This week im afraid im still in the zone of the MESSY

The below piccy shows some wee Bags in abox sat on the tin .These are easy and fab to make if your interested on how to make these for any occassion see my below post.These are filled with chocolates and tag is enclosed in ribbon to match paper but you cant really see that.Next to that i have jusT made some cd covers which i have decorated .The one you can see has green ribbon and merry Christmas in green embossed on front.

The pile on the right is all the papers ive got out for the album yep thats the one piled high!
couple cards in the back ground made just drying old santa card to left and tilda with tree to right.

Biscuitlid said...

Fabulous space and creations to admire here Jude.

I am so very sorry to read about Summer, I know how it feels to lose a baby (my first son died at two days old) - all you can do for your friend and her daughter is just to be there for anything they need and don't be afraid to say Summer's name either, it will help.

Gentle hugs for you

Such sad news. I would urge hor to contact a local chapter of Compassionate Friends

They were a great support to us when our don died.

It's hard to make an upbeat comment in the face of such a tragedy, but your album is lovely. I am a huge fan of paper bag books in general.

Oh my gosh Jude, my heartfelt prayers go out to your friend and her daughter, that is just horriffic, makes my heart sink.xx
