playing with zigs

Hi friends. It's been awhile, eh? When we last "spoke" I was heading to MI to be with my Mom who wasn't feeling well. Well that journey took a few turns ending with her passing peacefully on my birthday. Then there was Dad to get settled in his "new normal". And now I find myself in my "new normal" - back in Germany with my head in MI half the time AND with my baby graduated from high school!

Thought I'd share a series of cards I made before all hell broke loose in my life. I had been having a play with my Zig markers...and some fantasy coloring...



It feels nice to be back. Haven't quite made it to my craft room yet, but I will. I've missed you all. (Thank you to those who sent wonderful cards to cheer Mom up or comfort me and Dad when she passed - Shirley, Darnell, Ruth, Amy T, Bev, Shery, Cornelia, Bonnie ... and any others I'm forgetting. You're the best!)

  3. It's nice to see you back for a minute or two in blogland. Things will get to where they ought to be, and you'll soon be in the swing of your new "normal." My 'normal' changes every day, lol. When you do get back to the craft room, make another one of these. It's beautiful. It's breathtaking. It's just wonderful. Hope you and all your family are doing well. Bev

  4. Maria, how wonderful to see your post pop up in my Feedly and oh, what a lovely card you've shared with us: fantasy fabulous in every way. I second Bev: beautiful, breathtaking, wonderful. Time will help you to adjust to your 'new' normal and, as you already know, you'll experience the full range of ups-and-downs. Heal at your own pace; craft when the desire emerges. Whatever you need, we're here for you.
    Hugs and love~c

  11. And it's good to have you back blogging and on IG again! This beautiful watercolored flower really pops surrounded by the black and white ones!
    I can imagine it's hard to be so far away from your dad... It will take some time and lots of patience to heal. Thinking of you all...
