My first handmade card!

I just love the way this turned out! Close to MY Heart has a product called Liquid Glass! I love this! you can put it on anything and it will dry clear! I used that Spiral clip and added some beads, applied Liquid Glass and let it dry. It appears that the beads are floating! I also used CTMH acrylic stamps for the card! It was so much fun and so easy!

It has been a very emotional week in our small town as we have been trying to come to terms with the violent murder (yes I said it). No one wants to say that Steven was murdered, they just say he is gone. The truth is Steven was murdered along with his girl friend Jennifer, by the hand of another 18 year old boy. Not just two young lives but three have come to an end by the jealous rage of Reyes Carrillo, after hearing the news of his sisters death, Jennifers brother Billy was driving home to be with his mother and crashed his truck and died.

My heart goes out to Steven parents & Jennifers mother. I can not even begin to imagine the horror and grief they must feel.

Steven was taken from this life on May 11, 2008. He was born Oct. 12, 1989, in Chico to Dan and Denise.

Steven was a senior at Willows High School where he was a popular student, played lead trumpet in the band, and was a member of the Willows Honkers football and golf teams.

Steven was a dedicated Boy Scout, achieving the highest rank of Eagle Scout in December, and continued to be a mentor for younger scouts. He enjoyed all things outdoors and lived his life with an open mind and heart. Steven was a very loving and caring young man who was generous and giving with his family and friends.

A new chapter..

Today I feel as if and old and I mean really old chapter in my life is finally closed. I took my first step into my fathers house since his death, almost 2 years ago. It has been a long and unnecessary legal battle, that at this point I don't even care to think about. I just know in my heart that its over, and I did my best to do as my father wished. I actually smiled as I pulled into my driveway tonight and was glad to be home and I felt at peace. So after Christmas I will help my sister move into the home built by my Grandparents and handed down by my father to her, and I hope that each night as she pulls into the driveway she smiles and is happy to be home................

I'm Haning in there!

Sometimes I wonder how....I do have to admit things have been really crappy since the death of my father and with the passing of my Grandfather 10 months later and to top it off in April 07 I lost yet one more important person in my life. Jack, he was like a father to me and also my neighbor for 9 years. It just seems like death have been following me around and I wonder who death will come for next. It has been such a roller coaster of emotion for me. Just when I feel my grieving process has reached an end I have to start all over again.

I'm broken and am trying so hard to come to understand all that has happen. I feel that this is a first step...reaching out and posting bear with me if I ramble....screw it! Its my blog I can ramble if I want.

So I guess I'm back...kinda...
