WOYWW 4-5-17

Well,  it's been a while, and there have been a lot of changes over here!

First, I changed the name of my blog from Papercrafts by Suzanne to Ingleside Home, after one of the Anne of Green Gables books. I eventually want to write about other things besides papercrafts, so a name change seemed to be in order.

I deliberately put aside writing and crafting during the holidays. Some family illness took care of January. Then in the middle of February,  I got a call from my sister-in-law that my brother had been hospitalized and was not doing well. To make a very long story short,  my husband and I made an unexpected road trip to California and were with my brother when he passed away on March 3rd from a very aggressive cancer. So that took care of February and March. And here we are in April.

I can't say I've been working on any cards, though I should be making an Easter card for my mother-in-law, since she always sends us one. We are having a memorial service for my brother in early May, so my writing/crafting abilities are going to that. It will be at our church, and I want it to be nice, since it will be the only one he'll have. Relatives are coming in from out of town to join us. Here is a picture of the photo collage I'm working on.

It's not really done, the pictures and writing are not pasted down yet. But that is the general layout. I think I will add some blue cardstock underneath the photos, and embellishments. I'll post a picture when it is done.

Here is a photo of my workspace, soon to be only our dining room.

My youngest daughter will be moving out soon, and I will take her bedroom for my office/crafting room. It's a small room, so it will require careful planning,  but I'm excited about decorating it. It's nice to have the distraction right now.

Well, I hope your Wednesday is going well. Please stop by to see some really talented crafters. Have a great week!
