a new week. matt’s feeling better 😬 a family day (probably involving the beach). yummy food will be consumed. the week ahead will be planned. cuddles will be had. and there will be a fair bit of ✒️ action to ensure a smooth start to the working week tomorrow.
who remembers this heartbreaking song by wendy matthews from the 90s? how can a song sound so beautiful but it’s words be so crushing? 😓. i suppose that’s what is try to achieve with my work. i brush out a colourful array of requests... a lot of depth. from words of pure joy to mark a new arrival, a new beginning, words of companionship... to words expressing some really hard times. grief. heartbreaking grief. through loss mainly. but with each piece i pour my love into each s****e hoping that on the other side of these inky lines some sense of comfort can be found. to recreate the love within the memories (whether in times of joy or loss). i wouldn’t call it a pleasure as i do cry a lot and write certain pieces with the heaviest of hearts - some pieces leave me exhausted. but it is a complete honour and each piece made will forever have a place in my ever-growing heart.
anyhow. i slightly veer off track. so deep all the time jesselou 😂. i was trying to say i hope you all have a heart filled sunday and that you have a chance to reset for the week. big love. ll x💛💫
Yesterday to today has been a total 180! the flow found me today. i believe this piece (which may or may not be done) will be the bridge between my mind over material series and my next series on the grieving process.

#grieving is a process of ups & downs, forwards and backwards, feeling happy one moment and then bursting into tears the next....and when you go through something like this it really shows you who really has your back...i have a tattoo on the back of my neck that says “when it’s darkest, we see the stars...” and that is truer now than ever. i was so lucky to have a supernova of a star by my side when presh died, holding my hand, rubbing my back and comforting me in my darkest hour.....xxxxxx 💔🦊✨🌘✨🌘✨🌘✨🌘✨🌘✨🌘✨🌘✨🌘✨🌘
Chichi went to the rainbow bridge today. he's our first family cat. he's with us for 11 long years. we got him when i was still single. fast forward to how many years, i got married and moved away from home. i was only able to see him everytime i go home to visit my parents and my hometown.
chichi was with my mom when she got the big "c" until she passed away. it's been 2 years since mother's gone. maybe chichi missed her so much (because he always sleeps on her bed), that's why he decided it's time for him to leave, too.
i am heartbroken right now but it's okay. chichi had a great life with us. he also got the chance to meet and play with my toddler on his prime. and for that, it's enough for me to make me happy.
I love you so much, mamay. i will forever treasure the memories i have for you. i may not be good as you are but the lessons you taught me have shaped who i am today. thank you for being our hero. you were truly a super man! you may have passed on, but your memories will always live on within us. until we meet again. i just want to hide and block out the world for a week. 💔😭😭😭 #grieving#thestruggleisreal
