Happy Thanksgiving

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Hello Blogging Friends! It has been such a long time since I have posted on my blog. I am not sure if everything on blogger remains the same so I thought maybe I should do a trial post! I remember some talks about changes to Blogger but I have not done anything different. I hope some of my friends will see this and will comment if you do.

My family really went through a lot last year and this year. My husband passed away in February this year after a lengthy but courageous battle with cancer. My mother-in-law had been sick most of this year and she died in October. It has been hard to deal with loss and changes. But through friendships, prayers, and strength from God, I am doing ok. Thanks to all of you for your prayers and support!

I have been crafting some and wanted to share a couple of projects that I completed. Above photo is the results of my first try with burlap. I like the way it looks! The flower on the the B is also made from burlap. Below is a pin using one of my red burlap flowers and a Battenburg doily. Just perfect for a Red Hat Lady!

My next project is a scarecrow wreath made using a straw wreath which I cut into at the bottom to make arms. The sleeves and collar are from an old flannel shirt. Gloves are stuffed with poly-fil for the hands. He looks quite handsome on my patio!

Wishing you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving! Hope to be back soon sharing some Christmas cards!


  1. Yea, you are back! What a lovely project! I have missed you and it is great to see you post something! Love ya!

  2. Your projects are beautiful. I'm so sorry to hear about your husband and mother-in-law. I've checked back every few weeks to see if there was any posts that just didn't get to me. You've been through so much in the last year. I'm glad you had a support system. Maybe crafting will help. It's like therapy to me. So glad you feel like coming back.

  3. So sorry to hear about your losses Glenda but I am glad you are back to blogging as it is therapeutic and will give you some solace . I love your wreath it is so elegant and beautiful

  4. glad you are back my friend and I am always here for you love your beautiful projects. thanks for stopping by today. hugs

  5. I am truly sorry for your losses Glenda. I can say I know what you went through as I am going through the same things. Hubby is still fighting his battle with cancer and we are starting to get low on our options. MIL has cancer now too but isn't going to treat it. But I'm glad that you are back to crafting, it can be therapeutic and give you something to focus on. I hope I can take my own advice if I lose my husband! Which I pray doesn't happen for a long time!!! I love your beautiful projects, your wreath is amazing and look beautiful hanging and your scarecrow is adorable and makes me smile. Big hugs to you Glenda!! Brenda
