Just hug her, a few minutes longer. . .

I have been wanting to blog for the longest time! Sorry I couldn't make it here sooner. Those on my facebook will already know this - my mom was operated on last Friday. Thank you guys for your prayers, kind thoughts and comforting words.

We were all there for her by the time she got out of the OT, that, I'm thankful for. That and a lot more, actually. I'm thankful that so many people love my mom. Never-ending visitors, hugs and kisses and baskets of flowers and fruits and soups. Thanks guys, really. I might have been annoyed with some people (outside of the family circle), some of the time, but all is good now. . :D
She is home now, recovering well. I hope she will be back to 100% real soon.

I was done with this page a couple of days before she was admitted, but the photo taking got delayed until this morning. Just a simple one, that title, though, loaded with love. My mom, she just loves and loves and keeps on loving everyone. She is strict at work and when we were young.. but if she was not, then I won't be here. The amount of heartache I gave her when I was growing up, wow.. I can't even imagine.

I don't wish I can turn back time and be a good girl, because.. DUH, that won't be possible, we have to be realistic, no? I am just gonna hug her that few minutes longer from now on. And let her know I appreciate everything that she has done for me, doing for me and will be doing for me. Sorry for the sappy-ness overloaded, ok.. now the layout.

Tied to her heartstrings

When i looked at this pic, this layout is kinda similar to my Night Owl layout, don't you think? :) Alike, but so different.

close up 1

Stampin' Up Scallop Edge Punch and ric rac, again.

close up 2

You can't find Hambly Dandelions paper in that purplish color, because I learnt from Dina (thank you, gorgeous) and sprayed glimmer mist on the Kraft Dandelions paper and then wiped it off to bring out the silver.

Then because I can't leave the layout alone, I punched some holes and tied red thread into what looks like bow, i hope. :D I'm hopeless with bow-tying. I don't even buy clothes with bows for my girls. Sham does.. and we only put it on when Daddy's around. LOL.

Okay.. what else. Oh yeah.. some links :)

Hambly's Earth Day giveaway. While you're there, scroll down a teeny bit and check out our amazing guest designer, Debee Campos, and also beautiful creations by Tulip Girls!

Are you a twitter-er? LOL that's a mouthful. Follow Hambly Studios! And not forgetting the Hambly Contest running at TwoPeas right now.

Saturday, I'll be in the company of amazing ladies at Creative Escape "Works of Heart" 2009, helping Kah Mei, Tia Bennet and Donna Downey teach their classes. Excited? LOL.. Are you kidding me? I'm beyond excited..! *grins*

So yeah, that's about it. I think I wanna scrap today, but I have mountains of laundry to fold. Oh well, they won't scream for attention, so I'll be okay, me thinks. :)

Thanks for stickin' with me this far out.. *hugs*

Sorry about your Mom...hope she feels better soon. What a great LO to celebrate her. Really love how you sprayed the flowers...I don't own glimmer mist but now that I've seen examples of it, it makes me want to try it. I just saw one sprayed over a stencil. How cool is that?

Denise said...

Sending you my prayers Sasha, hoping your mom has a speedy recovery! Your layout is absolutely beautiful!

Yep hug her a few minutes longer,,,that is too sweet!

Have fun scrapping!!!

Sue said...

So sorry about your mom but glad to hear she is on the road to recovery. When I lost my Dad on 12/31/06 I learned that time is precious and that I need to appreciate my mom even more than I already do and to make sure that I tell her how much I love her daily because that is the one thing I regret about not doing with my dad. So YES, hug her longer, tell her how much you love her (they can never get boared of hearing that) and spend as much time together as you can. Be blessed and I will keep you both in my prayers.

Benga said...

My prayers for your Mom for her full recovery, yep give her that power hug, wish I can do that to my Mama everyday.

Take care and happy folding ;) (hate that too LOL)
