Hi Everyone! Sorry for so much time passing since my last post...a combo of things going on with me. I have been sick and fighting depression which is not entirely surprising. It hit me all of a sudden that I'm not going to see my Mom tomorrow, next week... or ever again. One morning, I was half awake and I said to myself "I'll ask Mom's advice on that" ... yup, the pain of loss can hit hard. My Aunt, Linda (The Milk Witch) stopped by this past week and it was so wonderful to talk with her. One of the things she suggested that I do is to burn some sweet grass and talk to Mom-mom whenever I want to talk to her. I got some sweet grass from my Dad yesterday and I know that will help - leave it to Linda to help me find healing....love her!
We drove home and the next day went to Uncle Barry's Birthday Party - it was so fun to see family and friends. Bonus: got to see Marcie Francis and her partner, Paul. Marcie is from Elsipogtog First Nation and I don't get to see her that often. We used to see each other more in Ottawa, Ontario (oh those Ottawa days!) where we both lived for a few years.
I have done a few YouTube videos because I'm still card making (even though I haven't been blogging lately):

This weekend has been another good one: Tony's Graduation Party was yesterday. We are all so proud of Tony - top marks in all subjects - now that's a huge accomplishment!! Again, friends and family aplenty, good food, good conversation ... I think of Mom and she would be so happy that we are all sticking together and celebrating life - I love you Mom and we wouldn't be who we are without you!!!
Final note: made a card for Tony's Mom, Chatawna who celebrated her birthday on August 7th:

This is the video to go with it:
