2010 365 art journal calendar

Well I'm happy to kiss good-bye to March & show you my completed pages. March is such a difficult month with the loss of my mum & her parents... my beloved grandparents.

My mum passed away on Good Friday & with it keep jiggling about it feels more real then than on the 21st March. I am dreading Easter. :(

Tom ended up in A&E last Good Friday. Thankfully not the same one where my mum died & my DD has been rushed in hospital on the same day too! It's really not a good day in our house.

Keep crafting that's my motto... Here are my March pages.

  7. Both March and April are beautiful, will be thinking of you tomorrow, believe me, it gets easier with time, but your memories remain with you forever. Hugs xx

  8. Those calendar pages are lovely Gez. April is a sad month for us too as we lost Dad at the beginning of April and his birthday is in the middle of the month.I can't believe its 21 years ago. He knew we loved him more than anyone else in the world and that's a great comfort. By working together and being the folk we are we are leaving the legacy of love he would wish us to do.I am a firm believer in living for today. Enjoy your Easter break! x Jo

  20. Hello Gez
    Your pages are fantastic - I love the doodling around the edges - did that stem fro the zentangling! Its addictive isn't it?
    I wish you a peaceful day tomorrow. This verse keeps scootching round in my head so I'll pass it on... weeping last for s night but joy comes in the morning. In time your sorrow will ease and you'll be able to smile at happy memories of your Mum. x x

  26. I loved your calendar pages Gez...your March ones were so full of sad days... unfortunately my last couple of days in March was like that too as a good friend of ours died and we couldn't go to his funeral as we were on holiday...he was only our age and has left 4 small children behind...take care and I hope April is turning out better for you...Kirsti x
