It’s been more than 6 months since I cut anything on my Glowforge.
My wife was diagnosed with brain cancer on May 25th this year. Completely unexpected and out of the blue she went from working full time as a floor nurse in Orthopedics at the Mayo Clinic to having trouble remembering what she had for lunch. I believe that she could have passed her Nursing Boards again at any time but her short term memory really suffered.
We actually managed to enjoy a great amount of life even through radiation and chemotherapy.
Unfortunately, she passed away on November 19th. 31 years we were together and planned on so many more.
My wife had made it a tradition to get each of us (her, myself and our 3 kids) a Hallmark Christmas ornament every year. Cathy was an avid knitter. She has many works in progress which may or may not get finished now. So instead of Hallmark ornaments, this year my oldest daughter drew up a special one that I used the trace function for.
here’s the first go at it. Not sure if I’ll stick with wood or maybe do some proofgrade acrylic.
I hope to get back to creating more on my GF and try to keep myself busy and distracted…
