It's summertime!!

O my, I can't believe there's another week over..
It's been 30 degrees the past few days and I'm really enjoying the sun and our swimmingpool in the backyard. I also did some scrapping but can't show you anything yet. I didn't finish the little workshop yet, because I want to add something I still need to buy but I can't find it.. Grrr... hate that...
But I really like the result so far, so it's worth searching.

G45 the best of the best!

I've been a real bad blogger last week, I'm so sorry...
I really needed a break after being in an emotional rollercoaster the past few weeks.

But today I received some awesome news!

Graphic 45 is awarded for "Best in Show" at Summer CHA!!!!!
The Craft and Hobby Association (CHA) celebrated the best of the best in original product design and creative communication tactics at competitions held June 18-20 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. Judged by CHA Staff, consultants and members of the press, exhibiting companies were recognized for their outstanding efforts during special show awards presentation ceremonies.

"At CHA, we're continually encouraging our members to use their creativity and talents to enhance the industry and develop new initiatives," explained CHA CEO Steve Berger. "The quality and skill demonstrated by the innovative new products, incredibly designed and professionally staffed booths, and creative press materials submitted by our members helps set a high standard that motivates and spurs the industry toward excellence."
I'm so proud to be a part of their DT. Right now I'm working on a little workshop for the Graphic45 blog
Please stop by soon to join!

Last goodbye

Well.... today was the day we had to say goodbye forever...
Everything was perfectly managed, she would have wanted it this way...

Vandaag moesten we voor altijd afscheid nemen van oma.
Alles was perfect geregeld, precies zoals ze gewild zou hebben.
Geen poespas, eenvoudig maar absoluut waardig.

Oma is nu in ons hart

Dag omie....

I'm so sad to tell you that my grandma passed away Wednesday afternoon.
When I left Wednesday morning I was already afraid she wouldn't make it trough the day. I said farewell and that was so difficult.... but I'm grateful I had the chanche to do so.
I'll miss her, but I know she'll always be in my heart.....

I feel so sad....

I'm so sad... I feel like crying all and I can't focus on things right now.

My grandma broke her ankle three weeks ago and her condition is deteriorating real fast ever since. It's so sad, it breaks my heart to see her this way. She's really ill and isn't getting better anymore. She's is fighting and resisting but uselessly.. It's just a matter of time untill she'll pass away.

I said farewell to her this morning, because I don't know if she'll be there tonight. She hasn't eaten for over a week and can't drink anymore. She can't talk and doesn't respond anymore. If we're lucky we can see her eyes open just a little when we talk to her.

It upsets me that there is nothing I can do! It hurts to see my Mom cry without being able to do something.

I feel so so sad.....
