How do you mend a broken heart!!!!

It has been a really hard and long week for me. I have been so blessed by my family and friends. I love to create and it is very healing for me. So I've picked back up where I had left off on my sewing and creating. My Mom was one of my biggest fans!



This is my newest Crow Doll. Once again I hand stitched the entire thing. I baked her up real good in my special coffee spice mixture. She smells so yummy!!! I made her a slip out of real grubby muslin and her dress is real prim with vintage buttons. I love this Crow Doll!!! She will be listed in my Etsy Shoppe soon!
I loved making these little shamrocks by hand from grubby green homespun. These will be listed in my shoppe too.
This is a tag I made for St. Patrick's Day from a manila folder and a Beer advertisement I picked up at Sim's store from the beer display. And a flower out of grubby green homespun and a button from my jar.
I signed up for a winter stick pin swap over at Tee's at www.thealteredpaper.blogspot.com. I loved doing this swap! I tried to make mine as prim as I could. My partner Oliva likes snowmen and prim.
These are the pins  made to go in the little snowman pocket. I really loved making these pins.



Here are the pins I received from Oliva. They are so pretty.

I have so many ideals in my head to make. LOL I am drawing out patterns for more Raggedy Fran's. So I guess I am mending my broken heart by sewing and creating and going through my Mothers things and photos. I am falling in love with my Mom more everyday.
Thank you so much for all your prayers. XO Love, Fran.

Dear Fran, I am sending much love and prayers to you. I am so sorry to hear about your mom. I think mending a broken heart takes just the right amount of prayer, faith, family,love, and spending time using those wonderful talents that God gave to you to keep making your treasures.

How do you mend a broken heart? You go to the one that loves you most...JESUS.

I'm so sorry Fran. I can feel true empathy vs. sympathy. Anyone who has lost a mom can.
My love,
Jackie

Fran, I know Jesus will mend your broken heart--"The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit." Psalm 34:18
Love you and are praying for you!

I'm so sorry about your mom. I know that pain and how lost I felt (and sometimes still do...). My prayers are with you.
Hugs,

I'm so sorry Fran. It's good to see you back. I love that last line... falling in love with your mom more everyday. I'm thankful that you have such treasures of photos and memories to keep her with you always. That's very sweet.

Your new handmades are wonderful, love the crow! What a fun swap with the snowmen and pins, very cute.

Have a wonderful week, my friend~
