July 2016 Name Tag-Card Video

Hey Crafters!!  I’m going with a “Summer” theme for this month’s name tag and turning the same layout into a shaped card.  


I’be been working on my resume’ after years of being at home with my kids and most recently my grand babies.  Applying for jobs online, which is nerve racking when you can not see the people, their facility, etc.  Not to mention, taking timed online clerical assessments, eek!  

Then, the sudden passing of an aunt Friday before last (my dad’s sister and one of my favorite uncle’s wife, this uncle was my dad’s best friend and he was my uncle long before he married my aunt). Our big family on my father’s side is shrinking (we lost 3 last year and 1 this year) and even though I am a Christian, grieving takes its toll on me.  As my favorite people pass or loose their people, it somehow compounds what I’m feeling.  I worry about all of the firsts after their person is gone (birthdays, holidays, anniversaries and especially Christmas, etc.).
