I had previously released a blue and yellow kit in honor of my grandfather's love for the Parramatta Eels (here), however the kit was torn to shreds for the bright colors, and probably the whole thing really lol so I took it down and have instead made a small mini using a lighter shade of blue as a neutral with the blue and yellow more as little color pops if that's the correct way to describe it lol
One of my fondest memories of my grandfather was when I was a little girl. I was born with a lazy muscle in my eye and surgery that was supposed to correct it when I was 3 instead made it worse, so from the age of 8 to 11 I had to go all the way from my home town Kyogle to the Royal Far West Children's Hospital in Manly, a suburb of Sydney. I spent 2-3 months alone in this hospital each year and because Pop was living in Sydney at the time he would come when he could and take me out for a few hours. These are some of my most cherished memories as it was very lonely for me at the hospital.
Two years after his passing the grief is still very strong, I don't know how long it will take for it to soften. Pop's favorite football team was Parramatta Eels who were commonly known as the Underdogs, I'm not really a footy fan so I don't know if they still are lol
Here he is with my son in 2007:
Since I wanted to honor his memory with the colors of the Eels I am still going with that....just toning it down a lot lol
There are 5 patterned papers, 3 solids, 3 frames, 3 ribbons, 2 flowers, 1 bow, 1 binder clip and 1 button in this mini....I hope it is better liked than the previous one lol
