Creamy Oversized Clutch by RACHELelise $25.00

This little guy will soon be a part of my life. I ordered it yesterday to go with a sassy dress for an up-coming wedding on Ono Island, AL. I think he will do just fine.

A little larger than most clutches out there (13"x10"!!!!!!) he will hold all of my must haves including camera, lipstick, and possibly a pair of cute flat sandals for when my dancin' shoes have worn out their welcome. ;)

A New Day Has Come

Print from here.

This best describes my mood today. (If this even describes a mood?)

As much as I miss Mom, I know that she would want me to "keep on keepn' on". I have so many creative ideas running through my head I can barely keep track of them all! Sometimes I wish I could clone myself to get everything done.

I hope to pick my blogging back up regularly (I need my daily creative escape) so for all those folks out there who are still keeping up with me, thanks for hanging in there. I have BIG plans for this blog and for Katie Company.

I have been struggling to write this post for weeks (hence my absence) so please bare with me...

On March 26 of this year, my mother passed away. She was been diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in December of last year. Cancer is a scary thing for everyone involved. I spent as much time as I could (even though now it doesn't seem like enough) with mom as she went through what we thought was going to be a fast recovery. As her health slowly started to decline I realized what was the inevitable-as much I didn't want to admit it.

She was my rock, my best friend, my creative inspiration, my guiding light, my home. I am dealing with so many emotions right now: anger, heartbreak & sadness to mention a few. I feel like a part of me died with Mom. I feel like every ounce of creativity has left my body. I feel like a shell of a person that I once was.

The past few months have taught me a lot about myself, my family and my friends. I have had the best support system in the world and I don't know how I will ever re-pay everyone who has stood by me in this time of darkness in my life.

Losing a loved one is never easy-losing my mother was/is the hardest thing I will/have ever gone through. I know that she is not physically here with me but she is always in my heart. I hope that one day I can be half the woman that she was.

I love you Mama and I will miss you forever.
