A rather melancholy day

Today was the day that my oldest son left again after having been home for two weeks over the Christmas period. This page was the result of me working through my feelings about it....

Love the colors and the overall aura of these pages Astrid!!! I can relate once youngest son is home on break, but I have about two more weeks with him! Love having both my sons home with me...Take care!

Hi, Astrid.

It's been a while since I've visited your blog and I have missed a lot of your wonderful work.
This page and the other work that you've posted, are all absolutely wonderful. I hope tht the melancholy doesn't last too long.

Ach, Astrid ! Hoffentlich bist Du nicht so sehr traurig, dass Dein Sohn abgereist ist. Ich - als Mutter - kann Deine Gefühle sehr gut verstehen.
Aber die Buchseite hast Du wunderschön gestaltet. Ein Gedicht !

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
