a blue Friday

Interesting how often blue is used to describe mood, isn't it? Today is the last post in my spring colors series. Blue Friday.

Today, I found out a friend has just been diagnosed with (early stage) breast cancer. I find myself experiencing so many emotions for her and her family, and at the same time re-living some emotions from my own experiences.

I'm exhausted today. Last night we had a potentially life-threatening allergy attack in the house; lots of allergens in the air are the downside to spring beauty. I'm hoping for a weekend of rest, and hoping the rain clears the air at least a bit.

I've updated the shop with some spring prints. I'm not completely happy with the quality of the cards I ordered so I'm not offering them for sale, but will be giving away a few with each order.

I wish you and yours a wonderful weekend! xoxo

Your kitties are growing fast, Lecia. Such an adorable photo!

Sorry to hear about your friend; it must bring back some wrenching moments.

I was so looking forward to the note cards. What got screwed up?

Hope you're feeling allergy-free this weekend!

Francesca said...

So very sorry to hear about your friend. And I'm so sorry about the allergy attack, I hope it was just a one off thing. Happy weekend Lecia.

And I love the kitty picture. It's so very peaceful....when I know they are not always that way!

I forgot to say, allergies are better and I've passed on your well wishes to my friend - thank you.

Barbara: the print quality is poor on the cards and the paper stock isn't what I'd hoped (I guess there's really nothing good about them, sadly. Puzzling, because they did a great job on some postcards for me...notecards are not their specialty I guess).

Lecia, your friend and family will be in my prayers. My heart goes out to them. I like to think of blue as a peaceful and calming color to carry our sad moments.
I hope who had the allergy attack is doing better today.
I'm sending you many hugs.... xo
