Miss my blog... :)

Does not feel the years will soon change. A lot has happened this year. One is my mother gone forever. She died on 22 August 2012. I feel very sad, but I had to give that up. thankful at that moment I like being given the power by God so I do not dissolve in grief.
 That's why since my mother died I almost never blogging. I had to replace my mother's job to take care of the house and my lil brother. First two months I have not been able to fit in, I was too tired to crafting, because of the morning I cook for my brother who is still in junior high school, from morning till evening I cook and clean the house. it feels very tired. but gradually I started to find my rhythm in the works. I started to have me time.
This photo was taken 3 days before my mother died, this is the last photo with my mom. This photo was taken at the feast of Eid, where all the family get together. Luckily we still had time to pose with.

 Besides that, I also have to work on wedding invitations and souvenirs of my best friends. For two months I was working on it, helped my household assistant. At that time I could not cook and crafting often because of deadlines. After all finished I could relax.
This is the invitations that I made :

 In mid-December I started making cards again. I miss coloring, especially coloring Tilda. nearly four months I did not make a card, no coloring. And I miss participate challenge.
