Mr. Scott

As many of you may know, Scott was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year. The type of cancer was rediagnosed to be Cholangiocarcinoma around May or so.Early yesterday morning, Scott passed away after a courageous battle. Those of us who are fortunate to have known him will remember him as an infinitely loving man whose constant caring and thoughtfulness were inspiring. Most of us will never meet another person so generous and so committed to ensuring that everyone around him is, above all else, happy.

Since we’re not having a showing or funeral service, friends and family are invited to gather at Taylor and Lacy’s home to celebrate Mr. Scott’s life, as was his wish, and do what he would want for all of us- root on the Packers and enjoy each other’s company. The party in Poppy’s honor will be on December 30th, from 12P.M.-4P.M. If you’re not familiar with where the Party Mansion in Sheboygan is, please PM me and I’ll get you the address and directions. All are welcome (no Bears jerseys, heheheh).

In lieu of flowers or remembrances for the family, Mr. Scott asks that donations be made to the Cancer Treatment Centers of America where he spent a lot of the last year.

All Chained Up

In June while still in Wisconsin, we went to the Bead and Button Show in Milwaukee. I try to catch it each year. Always fun tools and beadies for jewelry making on sale at the Marketplace. This year we picked up a couple chainmail kits with the idea that I’d make a bracelet and Mr. Scott would do the same. He always wants to play along and thought that opening and closing rings would be an easy, fun task to do while watching TV or just hanging out. Well, I made my bracelet and his, too, since he never got around to it.

Club Scrap February Blog Hop

For folks new to “blog hopping”, this is an activity where a bunch of like-minded folks get together and blog about the same subject on the same day. Then everyone else (that’s you) ‘hops’ from blog to blog to see how each author interprets the subject of the day.

In this case, the subject is Club Scrap’s February kit called Succulents.

So, here we go . . . on with the hopping! Continue reading
