Feed Yourself!

First layout done with Club Scrap Salsa kit, some stamps, CI Alpha stamps, a photo holder and the Basic Grey Notch tool. A big "THANKS!" to Yvette ~ see the curve on the layout? Guess what came in the mail today?! You made my day, girlfriend!

Second layout is again Textiles & Notions kit from Club Scrap but this layout is completely digital. I have been itching to try my hand at the digital stuff and so I decided to do this one from scratch.

Ricky had a lot of trouble doing many things. Gross motor, fine motor and so many other problems. Feeding himself was one issue that was especially difficult. We had a wonderful therapist helping us. And everyone in the family was so determined to assist Ricky achieve as much independence as possible. After many many months of hard work Ricky managed to start eating independently! He still has tactile problems with certain kinds of foods but can manage very well with cutlery.


A page in memory of Jill Wenzel. Called 'The Wenz' :-) She was really lovely and I was fortunate enough not just to know her online, but to be able to actually meet her. She even made the coolest PJs for me!

LOVE them both Aparna! That one about Jill Wenzel brings tears to my eyes. She was a fantastic person, wasn't she? So sad to see her gone.

Way to go on the digital! It's awesome!
