Many of us are simply transients in the UAE. We are here for a few years or more than that and we build bridges, make friends, and live fully in this country. However, as they say, all good things must come to an end. People move on.
Our shop has been very privileged to know a group of ladies who are each talented crafters. This is not surprising since majority of them are teachers. They have been regular crafters in our shop, coming together every month or so to just be creative together.
Leanne is one among their group who has been in Dubai for more than 15 years. She has had a successful career as a teacher and has recently retired. As things go, she and her husband will be returning to their home country.
We were commissioned by one of Leanne’s close friends, Louise, to create for her a farewell scrapbook. Many of her closest friends and colleagues contributed photos and messages enough for 20 layouts in an 8×8 inch album. The sentiments and pictures tell personal stories of a woman loved and appreciated by many. We will miss this wonderful lady. But there will always be the memories.
Here’s Leanne working on some of the projects she has done with us. We will miss her humor, wisdom, and company. We wish her all the best as she enjoys her retirement back home. We sincerely hope that she will be able to visit from time to time.
