After spending several hours struggling over designing memorial cards and being dissatisfied with the results, I was smiled at sympathetically by my two eldest daughters (and one lovely boyfriend!), who went click click click and managed to do in ten minutes what I had laboured over for nearly a day and a half !
I have now just finished printing out, glueing the sheets together, cutting them out individually and finally laminating the 120 memorial cards for my brother's funeral.
A friend is kindly going to "guillotine" the laminated sheets for me tomorrow.
It has cost a fraction of the price of having them professionally produced, and kept me busy. Today, whilst I was cutting, glueing and laminating, the lampada was burning in the icon corner and I was praying the Trisagion prayers and Memory Eternal
I am really pleased with the result, as they look nice and will be a keepsake for those who attend the funeral. It is a photo of my brother at his bubbliest and happiest, when he was much younger, and it makes me smile each time I see it :-)
I just hope I have made enough .......
