I have been a bad poster lately... I have projects to share, some already even photographed, some still needing to have their pictures taken. I've been a little pre-occupied with work, income taxes for myself, for my twin daughters, for my father, dealing with my Dad's investments, renewing my GICs, house building decisions... the list goes on.
All that and the hearing is going to be held tomorrow in regards to the guy who beat up my aging father almost 2 years ago. I have to decide if I'm going to attend, since I'm the only family member here. I find it rather stressful... the guy who did it is not all there, if you know what I mean, with a history of mental illness. So do I really want to sit in a courtroom with him? No, not really. Anyways, I'm feeling a tad stressed with my decision.
I'll get to see my Dad this weekend. It's been about 4-5 weeks since my last visit. He's not doing very well, so I'm eager to see if he remembers me this time. Last time there was not even an inkling... I was just a stranger to him. Boy, dementia sucks! I really hope to not end up that way. Please let me go quickly!
Sorry for the downer of a post... maybe I should go eat all the chocolates in this Easter treat bag before I head off to work! Chocolate makes everything better, doesn't it? lol
For the bag itself, I used an old Coluzzle template that my BFF gave me. She was going to sell it at a garage sale at our LSS last summer, but I quickly grabbed that puppy up along with another one that I think makes a little box.
Other than that, for supplies I used White Daisy and Petal CS, Paper Garden B&T, Happy Easter and Springtime stamp sets, Blush, Petal and Black inks, Hollyhock dashed grosgrain, paper flowers from Big Pinks and Spring Blossom. The buttons are non-CTMH from my stash and the mauve keytag chain is from my LSS. Oh and I also used my circle Coluzzle to cut the window and some transparency from my LSS, too. I filled a little clear bag, that CTMH used to sell, with Hershey's Kisses and tied it closed with more of the Hollyhock ribbon.
