An Unfortunate Event

Well it's been quite awhile since I posted last. Have had a fair bit to deal with lately.
One day last week, while I had popped down to the shops for about an hour, some selfish, uncaring parasite broke into my home & helped themselves to my laptop & jewellery.
I can't explain the feelings I've had since that moment. To have your safe place in the world, violated by a stranger & your personal belongings thrown around without regard, is really quite upsetting.
Now I understand that some people have it hard or are experiencing difficult times, but I myself have had to live through some very hard times too, & I never took something that wasn't mine or made someone else pay for my situation. It's just no excuse!!!!!
I truly hope that one day this person realises this, feels remorse & decides to make a more positive contribution to society through their own hard work & integrity.

I haven't created much at all lately, just haven't felt like it really.
I did get my Christmas cards done for a swap at Scrap Pile.
I also made this card last weekend from CPS sketch #86.
It uses some Kaiser papers, a flower die cut from the new Basic Grey range, Granola & some very cool trim from the shop my DD works at.

I'm also very happy to say that my daughter, Chloe, is still in the SYTYCS competition.
This week she takes on Round #8.
She has a little giveaway on her blog at the moment, so please drop by & wish her luck.
That's about it for me, take care :)

Jewls sorry to hear someone can stoop so low. Its such a horrible feeling to know someone has been in your house.
Hope you feel better soon.

There are no words to describe the disgust I feel toward the person who broke into your home, Mum. To have precious and irreplaceable things stolen from you, and to have your personal and private space invaded in that way is unforgivable. Whoever you are, grow a brain and some balls, and make something of yourself, because what you are doing right now is lower than low!!!

On a brighter note, love your card Ma! LOL!

Hey sweetie, My heart went to my throat when I heard about what happened, and couldn't stop thinking about you and your family.I am so glad that you are all doing OK.Just wish that whoever it was got caught.He will get his comeuppance one day.I reckon Karma will get him in the end.Love to you Jewls xxoo

Yeah, I know exactly how you are feeling about creating.Just take time away and you will get back into it when you are ready to.Mojo is a funny thing.You never know when it will go and then show its face again.
You have really been inspiring me to do more cards lately.I have been enjoying it a lot.Thanks for that.So glad that Chloe is still in the running too.
