I make things.
A dear, family friend of ours passed away recently. To say the least we were unexpectedly overwhelmed with grief and, eventually, good memories.
I visited with the family several times and offered to bring by food, run errands, help with pictures... you know, all those things one would do for a grieving family.
But there was more food than you could shake a stick at - so offering meals wasn't necessary. Because of the nature of the passing - errands have been easy to take care of.
So what now!? I feel so useless and need a way to express my respect, love, and gratitude for a man helped raise me.
So I craft. But it has meaning, this one. This man LOVED to wear Hawaiian shirts. It was kinda of his trade mark as of late. I mean, the family asked that men wear Hawaiian shirts to the visitation in memory of him. So I used the tutorial from here to make corsages... out of a Hawaiian shirt... to accessories our funeral attire.
No one may be interested in wearing them. But my heart is now full. And I will proudly wear this somewhat symbolic token of my appreciation very close to my heart.
