Sad Times

Less than 12 hours after my last post, a close family member of mine passed away suddenly.  I am not even sure what to say, still.  And I won't know why it happened for another 1-2 months, though I like to say when people ask me "next year."

At the moment, all that matters is that she is gone.  I lost my best friend.

I've been fumbling through my days.  And just started working on my house ornaments again, last night.  And sculpting other mini items.  I've been sketching off and on since it happened.

Not sure if the Christmas ornaments for Co-op will be created this year.  I currently have 21 orders on my Etsy shop to work through.

I came back just in time to see peak foliage on the highways and in my town.  It's been raining for a couple of days now and the different colored leaves look quite nice in contrast to the darkened trees.

I have a lot of think about......

...happy birthday, dad.  miss you, too.
