The Facts of Life

We had news the other day of the death of one of our friends.

She was over 80 and had a full, wonderful life on the farm she shared with her husband.....and she got hit by a pickup truck crossing the street, in town and was killed.

I mean, having lived that long and then dying that way, is just kind of weird for me to comprehend. I wish she could have died of old age instead of in such a traumatic fashion, but that was not in her plan I guess.

The image is from Papertrey Ink and is the Spiral Bouquet stamp set. Sentiment is from My Sentiments Exactly. Ribbon is from Jacksonbelle Embellishments.

On a MUCH brighter note, I have crossed the 5,000 hits mark, and so don't forget to add a comment on this post here to win some awesome blog candy! Click on the words "post here" to be taken to that post to enter your comment and check out the candy!

I am going to "The Town Scrapper" in Petrolia today!!
I might even buy something for myself!! YAY! I found out about her on Kim Reid's blog Kraftin' Kimmies Korner.

I've edited because I forgot to leave the link for Kraftin' Kimmies Korner! Sorry about that Kim, I guess I was in too much of a hurry to get to The Town Scrapper!! (and what a morning it was!! tee hee! -next post!)

Honestly, I can't believe that The Town Scrapper has been there all this time and only a few miles away and I DIDN"T EVEN KNOW IT!! Sometimes, right in your own backyard!!

and also I have absolutely NO willpower......hubby will KILL me.....

I have to go clean up my house??? because the cleaning ladies are coming today!

Honestly, after picking up, wiping up, throwing out and sweeping the floor BEFORE they come - WHY do I even need one!? Because I do, that's why! None of that stuff would get done if they weren't coming because I spend so much time in my stamp room - AND I LOVE IT!!!
