New PTU Kit What Lies in the Ruins


:: WHAT LIES IN THE RUINS ::


Cast a spell in sacred form
Of druids, celts and witches scorned
That roamed the hills they once tamed
That leads us there on astral planes -
And so the ticking of the clock
Reminds us of a time forgot
That leaves us wondering if we dare
What lies amongst the ruins there!

The PUP has been busy and here is her latest gem - a gothic, mystical kit, with a touch medievil, suitable for halloween or those with darker tastes. She had loads of fun making it and hopes you enjoy as much as she did.

An Update on the PUP

WOW! The kindess of some people never ceases to amaze me...or more specifically, Susan. People have continually emailed me asking for updates on the PUP, which I then forward each and every message I receive onto Susan, and she is speechless by so many kind thoughts. So I thought it was about time I post an update.

Susan is doing OK. Some days are better than others, and today is not such a good day, as it is with the whole grief process. She comes online almost every day now (whereas before a couple would pass before I saw her again, leaving me worried), and she tries to busy herself with designing. Some days her mojo just won't kick in - and we all know about that, eh? - but the way she sees it now is that designing is now her "bread and butter". She needs to do this to make the extra money needed to pay bills her pension doesn't quite cover. As she was her partner's full time carer she was paid a carer's pension, however that has gone now, leaving a huge hole that once used to cover her living expenses. And having lost out on a store we were in that closed a couple of weeks ago and did not pay out its designers (for two month worth of sales for Tooty and I), reduced her to tears. She needed and still needs that money. However, many others are in the same or similar boat on that one, sadly.

As I said Susan has good and bad days. I talk to her every day online and phone her occasionally to check in. She told me her doctor almost had a cardiac arrest when he saw the state of her the other day - to which she told him that THAT was a good day. lol But in all, she is getting there. It is a slow process and at this time she still isn't ready to come back "full time" to stores. She is still on "special notices" and if there is anything important, I usually take care of it for her as well as forward it on to her (just to keep her in the loop).

I have been forwarding everyone's good thoughts and wishes as well as comments on her latest kits to her, and she is incredibly touched by everyone's kindness. She has asked me to thank you all. Rest assured, she will be back. In the meantime she works on new kits to keep herself busy and I add them to her stores and announce them for her. And let me tell you - she has a gorgeous one coming very soon!! So the PUP still has it. *s*

Thanks again everyone!

Cheers
Stina

A message from the PUP:
"Remembering the fairytales from my childhood inspired this kit. Goldilocks and the 3 bears. This is a beautiful kit with all the characters from the book, just with the PUP's touch added to it. I do hope you all like this as it was fun to put together. Thank you for looking. Happy Scrappin to you all. Hugs from the PUP."

Reflections


JUST FOR NOW I SAY GOOD-BYE

A peaceful serenity comes over all
As the days shadows now grow long
Covering the face of the deserts horizon
The sun now setting across the western skies
Casting a crimson reflection to every ones eye

A misted tear I now do cry
As I have to say my final good-bye
For your spirit is now forever free
To run with the rivers current
And upon the deserts breeze
I know now in spirit you will be
Always in the shadow close to me

I will miss you so much my dearest friend.
Our souls in time will join again
Somewhere on a different plane
My Love for you will never Die.
Just for now I say Good-Bye

Update from the PUP

Hey everyone,

Just an update on Susan (Tooty/the PUP).
I just got off the phone to her and she sounds better - more like her old self but still very down and all over the place. She told me she put a cup of tea in the fridge earlier... She was saying she sat down at the puter and opened her scraps folder and just looked it, feeling no mojo or inspiration at all. She started to sift through mail and read a few messages yesterday but found it too overwhelming for now, as I thought she might. But she did ask me to pass on her thanks to everyone for their well wishes, thoughts, prayers and messages. She is touched by everyone's kindness at this time and appreciates it very much.

As she was her partner's sole carer for so long, she now loses her carer's pension, and is having to cut back on a few extra luxuries. I have told her not to hesitate in calling me if she needs to or wants to, but she is having to "watch her pennies" (as I am long distance) as she says, which is why I don't hesitate in calling her. Though she did say the phone just hasn't stopped ringing, and she has been busy which is a good thing as that helps keep her mind occupied. Still she is finding the house very quiet, which it would be, especially when you are just so used to the sound of another person being there and suddenly they are gone. I have been incredibly worried about her as many of you are aware Susan and I are like each other's shadows here...lol Where one of us you will surely find the other. But I was relieved to hear her sounding much better today than when I last spoke to her Saturday.

She has one kit waiting to go into stores next week, which I will add for her, but at the moment she simply has no mojo or desire to do any others right now. She will be back though...but she just needs a bit of time.

The funeral is on Thursday morning (Australian time, which will be Wednesday afternoon in the US) so just keep her in your thoughts and prayers as she is dreading it and knowing it will be a tough day.

She has seen some of the messages on Facebook, and she thanks everyone who has done so, so that is the best place to leave your thoughts for her. Mail is just too much right now.

Thank you, everyone for your kindness and thoughts at this time.

Cheers

A Note on Behalf of the Pup

This is Stina, and I am writing this on behalf of Tooty, as she is not able to focus too much right now. As you know the two of us are like peas in a pod - where one of us is, you will surely find the other...always together and the best of buds. *s* So I am here on her behalf to bring you some sad news which has not only knocked the wind out of her, but her mojo as well.

Yesterday afternoon Tooty's partner of 20 years passed away very suddenly right in front of her. Although he had been ill for a long time and he was going downhill fast, the nature in which he passed was very sudden and very quick. He literally dropped to the floor in front of her after saying he wasn't feeling well and as if he was going to faint. In a matter of seconds he was gone. Tooty tried to roll him to perform CPR but couldn't move him as he was too heavy for her. I guess one consolation was that it was quick.

Tooty posted this on her Facebook profile last night:
"What's on my mind - well LIFE... today my partner of 20 years passed away. He was my best friend through the good times and the sad times. I miss him so much alreay, and it has only been a few hours. I feel so lost and alone right now. I am sorry, I just had to let you know how the PUP is feeling right now. Grief is a very painful thing. It hurts. I may not be around for awhile."

She just needs some time to herself, to grieve and hold onto her memories. She was his sole carer for a long time and now the house must seem very empty without him there. Though she still has Tootypup (her faithful and bestest friend) the whole thing has shaken her up a bit and she is a bit of a mess at the moment. She asked that I let everyone known that she will be out of action for the time being. She may or may not be around for a while, and I just wanted to let you know that she hadn't disappeared...but she isn't doing too well and is just grieving.

Let's all hold her fast in our thoughts and pray for strength for her. She will tell you that she is a "tuff PUP" but she's not so tough - not when you lose a loved one.

Thinking of you Toots, and sending tons and tons of love. (Stina)
