Wanna see something POWERFUL? Look in the mirror.
Ever tried cutting glass and not know where to begin. I have. What a mess.
After the glass fiasco, I decided to cut an old CD. Much safer and a lot neater. It was hard avoiding those cracks but l kind of like the distressed look that was achieved.
My friend Christina gifted me with this cool journal she made. It has clay covers and
a great binding stitch at the spine. Isn't it wonderful? It's just the right size to hold
my inchies and perfect for some quick journaling too.
My daughter lost a friend. It was on the news yesterday but no one knew it was Lisa. No one ever knows who the victims are until the information begins to circulate among friends. Well, it was a shock to all of us.
Lisa was one of my daughter's liveliest friends. She was a walking party! LOL! Wherever she was you knew it cause you could hear her. And she was just as sweet as they come. So talented and creative. She designed t-shirts for Hot Topic and other similar stores. No one's sure what made her father snap. She loved him and postponed a trip to England so she could stay home to help nurse her dad back to health following his surgery in December. Unfortunately he took the life of his wife as well and then he jumped to his death. It feels very odd for me to be delivering this kind of news on my blog cause it takes away from the nature of it. But I'm upset and am finding it hard to understand how a parent, PARENT, could do this to his child. It's horrific enough that she died tragically but the fact that her father did it makes it worst to me.
Somehow this makes today's inchie word - POWERFUL - stand out and have a deeper meaning behind it. Lisa had a POWERFUL personality that drew so many people to her and this incident has caused POWERFUL pain among many. Rest in peace, Lisa. Your life had a powerful impact on many and you will be missed.
