Personal Musings

While I love having people stop by my blog and pick up any freebie I might be offering I have noticed that hardly anyone says "Thank You" and sometimes the comments are borderline rude. If I make a freebie and there is a reason you can't use it fine don't download it. To tell me you didn't download it becuase it didn't have enough photo holes or to many photo holes is just your opinion. Now if there is a problem with my download then let me know and leave an e-mail and I will fix the problem and get it to you.

I am not making as many freebies as I used to as you know my husband was diagnosised with stage 4 cancer in June and he passed away in December after a hard fought battle which he lost. His death has left a gaping wound in both my heart and that our our 8.5 year old son. We are trying very hard to get over his being gone when we miss him so very much. Mind you at the same time we are also trying to live life to our new normal. Which means my son has meltsdowns that will break your heart because all he does is cry that he wants his daddy back. I might think I have things together and I will hear a song on the radio and start crying. 

While I still enjoy scrapping my heart is not into 100% like it was before due to us grieving and my health. Life must go on and it will. We just took down our Christmas tree. Thankfully it is artificial otherwise it would have been a hot mess. My son didn't want me to take it down. We didn't even put it up until a few days before Christmas as neither of us really wanted to. We are basically depressed and you can't function being depressed. So I am sorry my "Freebies" are not up to your standards.

Sorry, I had to get that off my chest.

Our new normal.


  1. Dear Kimberly,

    I'm so sorry for your loss. I think you're doing an amazing job of moving forward and I sincerely hope that as time passes your pain will begin to lessen. I enjoy seeing your layouts at The Studio and I applaud your ability to continue doing them as you go through this sad period in your life. Be well, and be as happy as you can...big hugs...

  2. I am sorry for your loss. I can't even start to imagine what you and your son are going through. I totally enjoy your freebies. I pray that God gives you comfort and strength to get through this difficult time.
