Keeping Busy

I had a very sad loss last weekend, my mum passed away last weekend very suddenly. It's hard to deal with, my whole life is upside down as I have looked after her everyday for the past 6 years since she lost her leg. I've been numb but that is slowly wearing off and so what better way to keep busy than to try to craft a bit.

I made this 'doll' of my mum to use in an art journal.
 and here is a (not surprising) tag for the Lunagirl Moonbeams theme of Alice.
oh and I'm starting a challenge blog ~ just for tags.... here's the link. It's starting on Thursday 29th August.
