When the husband of one of our stamp club members died instantly from a completely unforeseen heart attack, I was once again reminded of how helpless one can feel at a time like this. Whenever possible, that's when I head for my stamping table . . .
Pouring your heart and mind into sending comfort by making something as beautiful as possible can do a lot to deal with those helpless feelings. All of my cards are wrapped in love – and never more so than during these crushingly sad events.
