Friends who truly care
The August 2010 theme of the Hero Arts blog was to create anything about: "Back to school, keeping in touch or a stationary set".
I love this theme. Mainly because i love sending cards or letters and just keeping in touch with my family, loved ones and friends. Last Aug. 13, i bought a couple of stamps from a new store, Craft Fancy. I bought a HA "Friends background" stamp (G2991). I was so excited to use it and also try to add distress ink on it. As i always do, i added a quilled flower. I placed the Friend stamp off center to give a little bit of dimension. I added sentiments from HA clear stamps: "Thinking of you" and "i hope you know..."
I am feeling quite lonely today. I miss my family and friends in Manila. I miss my life, being able to drive myself around town with my mom and dad, chatting with friends and people from the hospital where i work at; i miss my colleagues, my fellow doctors and clinic office buddies, Philippine food, etc. My life in America for now is more than laid back - a little housework here and there and that's it. I miss interacting with people besides my family. Crafting and making cards make me happy here - though it is really costing me, my husband actually, quite a lot of money. Heck... it keeps me sane ☺.
Take care, my friend and know that i truly care for you.
Thanks for reading. Blessings!
