Friends of our good friend Marsha, who became our friends, moved interstate last year to be near family. A sudden heart attack and her husband was gone — just a few weeks ago.
We decided to make a small junk journal instead of sending a sympathy card.
Well, it’s not that small!
The cover is a watercolour painting I made of an historic church in the main street of our village. Kay loves gardens, painting and colour.
First the couple
The first signature has little activities under flyouts for simple grief activities.
One is for Kay to write, on the pretty floral paper, a secret letter to her husband telling him her feelings.
Now her alone
The pretty card that starts the next signature has a tag with the first “job” for healing. There a few more in this part of the journal.
We hope this new life gets a bit easier with our love.
