One of my favorite blogs is The Thrifty Chick. Stacey, a stay-at-home mom of four, runs this blog, and I love her ideas, tips, and tricks. I originally found her blog while looking for personalized board games - she's got great tutorials on making personalized checkers, Yahtzee, etc. I've enjoyed reading about all her projects, and there are many things on her blog I want to try.
She hasn't posted much in the last two weeks because she has a new baby, Greyson, who's only 14 days old. Today, when I logged onto blogger, I saw she'd updated. However, when I read the blog post a few minutes ago, it wasn't a post from Stacey - it was a post from her sister, saying that she'd unexpectedly passed away on Monday after having a stroke. Even though I only know this woman through blogging, I am so saddened by this! The pictures of baby Greyson she posted only a few days ago now just break my heart - he got to spend less than two weeks with his momma! Her four children are all young- 8 and under.
For all you crafters out there, I recommend checking out Stacey's blog while it is still available. I'm not sure how long all her great ideas will be there now that she's passed away. I will really miss reading about her new ideas. My thoughts are with the Wolfley family!
