Joy and Sorrow of Life

in Blog on October 8, 2008

Have you been wondering what happened to me? I think our last few weeks could be summarized with the statement that “life happened”. It is with deep sorrow that I write about the death of my Father-in-Law, Earl P. Tocknell. Greatgrandpa was 91 yrs old when he died September 24th, surrounded by family members. Greatgrandpa suffered from metastatic bone cancer and was in much pain when he passed. We miss him dearly and it seems incomprehensible that he is not with us anymore. He has meant so much to our family. But we are thankful that he does not have to suffer anymore. A memorial service is scheduled for October 18th.

Around the same time our daughter Kristy announced that she would like to get married and we are planning her wedding for December 13th, 2008! And remember those renovations we were wanting to do on our house? … They, of course, still need doing.

I think you can see why there hasn’t been a whole lot posted on Oma’s lately. However, in my early morning hours when I wait for grandkids to wake up, I have been doing some digititzing and hope to have some new things up for you soon.

I am posting some photos so you can see what’s coming your way. My son is working on setting up a “design shop” section to my website where I hope to be selling some of these designs. I intend to be “reasonably” priced to help make this hobby affordable for many. I will continue to offer some free designs from time to time.

By the way, I enjoy the comments made by some of you visiting. Thanks for stopping by and thanks for writing. I also appreciate those of you who have shared photos of your projects. They are posted in the gallery. Any photos of projects you are proud of are welcome here. They do not have to be of projects with my designs only.

Have a great rest of the week.
