Everything has an End

 I hope you had a great Christmas time and a lot of love in your house.
For the christmas card it´s a little to late, but the gift bags are for the whole year :-)
I´m really glad that the 2013 comes to an end! It was a very stressful year, full of disease, grief, despair and worry.
People like to say, everything has a reason why things happen .  And I often hear me say this sentence .  But sometimes when you have no more time to think about the reasons, because everything is going much too fast, and a horror follows the other, you can not hear it ! You want only that it comes to an end .
Sure it’s always nice to scrap the good side of life. But even the bad times want their place in our memories and remind us of what we have left behind us . What we have already achieved .
This year reminds me that we are held together despite all the worries , our love has grown and how incredibly important family is! That it is important to forgive not only others, but also ourselves.
We are good, even when we make mistakes .  Parents can not be perfect.  Parents can make mistakes.  People are allowed to make mistakes. Because only from our mistakes we learn.
The steampunk heart was perfect for my layout! It symbolizes the pain and loss in my heart. One half symbolizes the heart attack of my father and my fears of losing him. The other half is for my daughter. She broke up with a very painful way of us and went to live her ​​father. The dark background represents the sorrows, disease and unrest. The photo shows that we never lose our sense of humor.

I have used:
That´s one of my christmas cards. I love to play with the Christmas word tree stamp! At first I embossed it with the green glitter Embossing powder from Tim Holtz. Than stamp with black over it.

I have used:


Theses are my two Gift bags.

Wish you all a fantastic, health, creative, successful and satisfied new year!
