Queendom Relics by Rea'

Tuesday, May 31, 2016

Hello everyone ! I'm stopping in to "dust the cobwebs " LOL ! It has been a long time since I have posted. I'm missing my  Challenges and my Tim Tags  :(  . I have quite a few new UFO's in my attempt to keep up BUT life kept me from making deadlines.

As many of you know, for the past three years I along with my wonderful sisters have been caregivers for my brother who was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer three years ago. He out lasted their predictions ... they didn't expect him to live this long. As a family we prayed ; God saw fit to Bless us with three years to make some precious memories ; and that we did. It was a long life changing, challenging  battle . Last Wednesday May 25, 2016 God called my brother home. No more blood draws, no more chemo, no more infusions, no more transfusions. While we are saddened by his absence here ... " To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord !" Ross' assignment here was completed.

While I miss my part-time twin , friend and neighbor dearly; I'm grateful for the time God gave us and I celebrate his  Graduation !

Thank you to all of you who faithfully prayed with us and for us. We felt your many prayers. May God continue to Bless you richly !

With some luck I hope to be back crafting next month Right now I'm cleaning up my area... it's a little messy ( okay... so a lot messy LOL ) ! My goal is to play catch up with my Tim tags. At the beginning of the year I had decided I would just sit on the sidelines and enjoy all the creativity of the Tim community... BUT having done tags for the last eight years I was feeling a little lost... so see you come June !! Yikes ... tomorrow is June 1st, can you believe it ??

 I will also be taking Tim's Creative Chemistry Classes  too ... Woo Hoo !!!

Well that's it for now... see you soon !


  1. Blessings and condolences to you and your family. May you find peace in your art. Looking forward to your new creations.

  2. So sweet Thank you Sharon :)

  3. A big hug to you, and I am so sorry for your loss. It's so admirable that you are already cleaning up your space. It is good therapy too. Prayers for peace for you and your family.

  4. Thank you Anita ( I'm just now seeing this... sorry ) ! I was checking my blog because I had trouble trying to put the badge on my blog last week; experiencing weird computer problem... nothing indicated it was working ... hahaha I discovered it went on SIX times ! I'll learn it all eventually I guess. I've got to set aside some time to tweek my blog ... BUT Tim is keeping us busy with Creative Chemistry :)
    Thank you again for your kind words :)

  5. Hey Rea....just wanted to stop by your blog and say THANK YOU so much for the lovely comment you left on my blog. I'm not sure if you have a new blog....since you've not posted on this one in a while. But I see you on Facebook...so we're still in touch. THANK YOU for your friendship and your always positive comments! <3

  6. Hi Candy ! Thank you for stopping by. No I don't have a new blog. I just have not kept up with my blog and my crafting... I'm still trying to find my new normal. I'm getting better, I've been doing some crafting trying to do some challenges ... but never making deadlines :( I need to get a new phone so that I can post again without all this other "stuff" . My phone is antiquated ( but I love it) ... AT&T no longer supported the "program" I had, then we set up Bluetooth and after a few months that was dropped for this phone ... so I cannot do the things as easily without my husbands assistance AND that a whole 'nother story !!! I am beginning to adjust to not having my brother... but boy is this a new territory ... never imaged it would hurt like this or be this difficult. I thank God for my crafting ... it keeps me sane ... or at least I think it does hahaha
