Serene Garden – FREE Project Sheet! Life Update

Life Update: Five weeks ago, my mom fell in her home and fractured her pelvis.  She was in the hospital for a few days and was then transferred to a rehabilitation facility while she heals.  She lives two hours from me and I have been going back and forth for the past four weeks to visit her over the weekends to do her laundry, fix up her room and gather anything she may need.  I had just gotten home Monday and was planning to head back up there on the 18th for a few days.  However, plans change and I was contacted by the facility yesterday and told that they suspected she had a stroke and were sending her to the ER.  I gathered up my things and headed out the door.  Thankfully it was a TIA and there shouldn't be any lasting effects so she is back in the rehab facility for a bit longer.  I don't usually share personal stuff on this blog but I have been really lacking on the content and I wanted you guys to know what was going on.  I am still in business and would still love for you to shop with me.  I have things to share and am getting it up as I can.  Thank you for your prayers and support, I truly appreciate it!

Check out the super cool embossing die in the Serene Garden Bundle, you can find projects on my blog #stampinup #barbstamps #serenegarden Have you seen the new Serene Garden Bundle?  I have been playing with it a bit and will have an Online Class in the future with it.  The bundle includes the Serene Garden stamp set and the Garden Scene Framelits.  The set of Framelits contains five dies that cut and one super cool die that embosses a corner scene (check out the embossing in the photo to the left).

Here's a gorgeous card created with the stamp set and the butterfly die in the Framelits set.  I have a FREE printable project sheet for you below.

  1. Praying that the Jehovah Rophi(God our Healer) will bring healing and wholeness to your mother and Jehovah Shalom wil be your peace during this difficult time

  2. So sorry for your life upheaval….praying for your Mom and that she heals quickly.
    Inky hugs from your Canadian Stampin’ Sister in Winnipeg.

  3. So sorry to hear about your mom and her setback. Prayers are with you and her, and please understand that “crafters” support is given to you, with knowing that your place at this time is doing whatever is possible for your mom. I felt so badly for you, watching your FB live re-play and feeling your sadness and concern about not being able to be two places at one time–business vs. mom. My prayers for both of you will continue.
