TIO #89 - Pressing Matters

My tag for TIO this week, is very simple, for a change... Helen asked us to emboss this time, so I decided to do dry instead of my usual stamping or triple!!! I did minimal stamping, actually, just some circles to enhance the embossing... then I just found circular metalic stuff to echo those circles...

So this is how I am feeling these past few weeks, as if going in circles - mum is getting worse and rings me constantly, crying and shouting... she can't help it, but it's very distressing... need to begin to make some hard decisions next week. My, but crafting helps to take you out of yourself, eh??
Thanks for looking and leaving your comments
Love and light

Frankie hun, if someone who has already trod the same path you're on can help, even if its just someone to have a dam good steam venting too, don't hesitate, aj.wiseman@btinternet.com, its a long and bumpy road and its not without an extra 3 tonn of chit gathered along way.

Thats it, you've sold me on the charms i was looking at earlier, they look fantastic on your tag.

Sorry to hear your mum is still causing distress. I know from personal experience what it is like and it's NOT fun. Love the circles theme to your tag, and the circle charms to carry through the theme.
Sorry to hear VV2 has died. I read that Hels had to have hers replaced too a few weeks ago.
