In Loving Memory

I know I say this every year, but it’s hard to believe it’s now 12 years ago today that my son passed away from brain cancer and every year I’ve made a card in his memory with a memory of mine.

this year, I’m focusing on the closeness of big brother and his little sister. as a homeschooling family, we had more time for creative outlets and embracing our imagination. oh my goodness, the adventures they had and the stories they would tell were always entertaining and so detailed! for a long time there was a fascination with woolly mammoths, so as soon as I saw mama elephant’s mammoth love set, I had to grab it – I feel like it depicts my two children so well. I’m not a big fan of realism, but my memories took me there and I thoroughly enjoyed getting lost in the process of painting while I created this card.
