Sad news

Lauren Lane Decor - a fellow Canadian -  was the reason I decided to start doing furniture makeovers after reading an article on her a little over a year ago.  She was an accountant who decided to quit and follow her dream - and was very successful.
She was an ASCP stocklist - and her last post ( only on July 5th ) reflected her excitement on introducing Miss Mustard Seed's new milk paint line -
I don't know any of the details yet - ( a car accident I believe )  I only know that she has passed away - and I feel so so sad..............

I never met her
Never spoke to her
Never even communicated with her through an email - and yet I feel a deep pain - a pain that is so close to the surface I feel as though sobs are about to engulf me - and tears as big as the ocean are about to fall.

It's such a small world, this blogmosphere that when we lose one of  " us " the gap becomes huge.
Too big
Too fast
Too heartbreaking,

Gone. Too. Soon.

Due to a large amount of spam ( that I'm tired of going back to posts and deleting ) I'll be using comment moderation from now on !!!
Can I beat these spammers at their own game? Probably not - but I'm going
to try my damnedest !!!
