I was on blog break, but during the break I lost a friend who was super supportive & so friendly during my craft journey. I feel bad I read this news after a couple weeks of her death.. My today’s post is a tribute to her..
Kathreen Ricketson’s Sudden Death
Wonderful & talented Kathreen. The founder of whipup.net ..May Her Soul Rest in Peace..!
Kathreen Ricketson & her husband Robert were on a trip to Coral Bay, western Australia. she sting by a deadly Jellyfish while swimming at beach.. This is the most tragic news which saddened crafters all around the world.
I was away from blogland for about one month, I read previous updates at blogger feed yesterday & there I check a post about her sudden death.Its really was shocking to me because a few weeks back I was checking her daily updates at instagram where she was sharing her camping at beach & many adventures too..
I have been featured so many times at whipup & also been there as a guest poster from Pakistan in 2011,
In 2012 again I was interviewed in guests series of the year. Its an honor for me to be in her list while working on guest post series.
Kathreen was most active at instagram where she was sharing updates of her journey almost daily, I was following here there from up to one year, now I was checking her page & it makes me sad to see many of her sweet pictures with her kids.. I would like to share some with you too..
