Crazy week & NEW {CU} Products!

It has been a crazy week for me. My uncle passed away this past week. He was only 58 and had a major heart attack. He was not in the best of health, but this was still a shock to our family. My sister flew in from Oregon for the funeral. I haven't seen her in about a year and it is so wonderful to have her here. On Friday she and I went to DD1's school to surprise her for lunch and then my sister stayed and read a book to her classroom. I am so glad that she got to do that. She was so very close to my girls before she moved out west 2 years ago and I'm so happy that she got to be a part of my DD's everyday life this past week. She's here for a few more days and then flies back west for 2 months. She'll be coming home at the end of June and will stay for the entire summer so that she can finish planning her wedding!

On Thursday, SM had our big Grab Bag reveal... I worked on a CU collab Grab Bag with my friend Tracy of Trixie Scraps Designs.

And here is my part of it....

Love your releases- beautiful! I am very sorry for the loss of your uncle. I lost my dad the same way almost a year ago. I take comfort in knowing he didnt suffer.
