I still find it hard to accept let alone write about the saddest news, one of our beautiful DUST Team leaders, Julie-Ann, lost her recovery battle on Monday, after the horrific Angel Flight plane crash two weeks ago, that claimed the life of her gorgeous daughter Jacinda and the pilot Don Kernot.
This weeks Wednesday Wishlist focuses on Australian ETSY Handmade, the colours - the browns, oranges and greens of the DUST Team, and to me symbolises Julie-Ann's passion for local crafters.
I will remember Julie-Ann for her infinite wisdom, willingness to embrace a handmade life, the wonderful craft swap that we recently had together, her tireless work on the DUST Team with Melanie, her friendship and guidance. I feel incredibly blessed to have known Julie-Ann and will always treasure the friendship that we had.
I invite each and every one of you to leave a comment, a thought, a message, to create a written tribute to this wonderful woman, Julie-Ann you will never be forgotten.
My heart goes out to Julie-Ann's family, sending much love and a wish that Len and family find peace in the knowledge Julie-Ann and Jacinda are reunited.
