You may have heard of the tragic loss of Kathreen Ricketson and her partner Rob last week. Kathreen was a pioneer of the crafty and blogging communities here in Australia, and around the world. I was so shocked and deeply saddened by the news of lives and an amazing family adventure cut short by a tragic accident. Something that’s still difficult to comprehend.
I had the pleasure of contributing to Kathreen’s four Kids’ Crafternoon books and her magazine Action Pack. Kathreen was always lovely, enthusiastic and a joy to work with. The founder of Whip Up, author, and blogger will be sadly missed by many, but none so much as her two beautiful children. My heart breaks for them experiencing such unimaginable loss. Whip Up have started a fund for the future of Kathreen and Rob’s children and I am doing what I can to spread the word. I know that our online community will gather together to help.
