In Memory of Mrs. LAUGH as well as Updates and My First Shop Live Experience!

Hi everyone!

I have not gotten a chance to blog for the last few days because I have been very busy with my teaching and wedding planning, which is good and bad. I also have been bummed lately with the unexpected passing of a fellow staff member of my school who I interacted with pretty much every day I was there. I will call her Mrs. Laugh to respect her privacy and the privacy of her family. 

It has been very sad for my staff, her family, and those who knew here. Many students were greatly affected by this news as well. I have fortunately not had to deal with death too many times in my life besides one set of grandparents (my grandfather died last week). It is hard at any age to deal with death and I am not a big fan of the feelings and visuals that come along with funerals. I am not sure anyone is comfortable with those things. Tomorrow is going to be very hard for me to attend the viewing, but I really want some closure and to express my condolences  to her family. In her honor, I will be creating an inspirational artwork piece this summer. I have an idea of what I will do, but it will be my little way of remembering her and passing on her memory.

Well.... I got a little of topic there, but I wanted to mention something about her and what has been going though my head. Blogging at times for me is a way to vent, so there you have it...

Tonight I participated in my 1st SHOP LIVE event thought ETSY! This event featured 30 products, 30 Etsians, and in 30 minutes (items were all at a discount and some with free shipping). I would highly suggest attending the next one, which I will try to post when I find out. The host, Marichelle, did a wonderful job!

 I have fellow Etsian, Savor, to thank  for my finding this event because they twittered about the event right before it started. I did make a purchase (seen up top) from Savor, who was a HUGE supporter of me when I was going though my rough patch. Check out Savor's shop and the  limited sale price of their Coconut Mochi Cream Fraiche in their Etsy shop! 12 left when I last looked (I was the 1st!).

I am also offering 20% off ANY item in my shop (except memory blankets) thought Midnight TONIGHT (THURSDAY). Just type in "SHOP LIVE" in the message to seller section when checking out!

Thank you so much for reading and your support during this time of saddness. Keep the family of "Mrs. Laugh" in your prayers please.

Hello fellow hoosier artist. I really enjoyed your Etsy store (especially the Italy prints), so I followed the link over to your blog which is fabulous as well. :-)
