Dedicated to my friend.....


My dear friend Suzy went to heaven this morning.
Thank you to you dear ones that lifted her up in prayer. 
She is in a better place rejoicing in heaven - out of her suffering. It is the ones that are left behind that hurt and grieve.

I want to dedicate this post to my dear friend:

Suzy and  I shared a common love of  making things, baking, planning parties and all things pretty, especially  Christmas - decorating, crafting and cooking. Last Friday when I saw her she was so frail and weak. She was whispering but she looked at me, eyes wide open and was so excited to talk to me about my website, Pinterest and my pins and making Cakepops. She was such an encourager. Always encouraging me with my creativity and many other areas in life.

Party Prettiness

I loved so much about her:

 Her enthusiasm for creating and teaching me a few things
Her gentleness and kindness
Her sweetness - My little girl described her Aunty Suzy as a sweet person 
Her thoughtfulness - sending handmade cards just to say she is thinking about me
Her sense of humour - even in her illness she still could laugh
Her love of prettiness - cups of tea and a cupcake
Her love of PINK
Her love of roses

I could keep making a long list... 


Girly Party Skewers - Suzy loved to plan parties


Suzy's favourite Gingerbread men

Her LOVE of cardmaking

Love you Suzy and thanks for the precious memories


PS - Colour Swap ladies - I will send out partner information on Monday or Tuesday of next week. I have nearly everyone paired up. Looking forward to seeing all your creations.
