Getting Things Into Perspective ....

Having had a not particularly good week - stinking cold, one colleague at work with man-flu, another colleague off on holiday and generally feeling fed up, I came home from work tonight and settled in my armchair with a coffee and the latest edition of Craft Stamper ....
I couldn't believe what I was reading - Sarah Lawrence of Crafy Notions died suddenly at the beginning of December last year.
I can't claim to have known her by any means - but I have seen and spoken to her a number of times at shows when I would stand for ages watching her demo and looking at her samples on display; and, of course, she had been in my living room - when she was on the TV.  She was one very, very clever lady .....
The last time I spoke to her was at the NEC in November 2011 - when I spent nearly 20 minutes with her and she was giving me lots of hints and tips about various types of glue - of all things - and then she very kindly presented me with two tubes of her own Crafty Notions glue ....
This sad news has certainly put things into perspective .... You will be missed, Sarah

As you say, it puts things in perspective. Living my second life myself, I know to try to enjoy each day and live as if each day can be our last... May she rest in peace.
