I didn't know her very well - we met during the CBC's destash event back in August and we shared a few late-night chats (I'm a night owl and she was on the other side of the world, in Thailand). I bought some beauties from her - including my precious Larimar cabs and some gorgeous rubies and we talked about life and humanity...
I knew she was sick and around December she posted less and less - which is never a good sign. But I hoped she'll get better. Early January we received the sad news: Tanya is not with us anymore, she has moved in spirit and hopefully she is not in pain anymore.
After the shock dissipated a little bit the idea of an event to honour her memory and her incredible love of life was formed. We have decided to have it two ways: a blog hop and a simple Facebook event (on the group she founded a few months back) for those who have no blogs to post.
The rules are simple: make a piece in her memory. It can be made with materials you have bought from her (God knows many of us have an incredible amount of such resources) or not. She loved life with passion - and that's should your piece show: life & light!
The date of this Blog Hop & Faceboo event is is Sunday, February 17th and the sign-ups are going to be open until a week before (February 10th).

- Create a piece that will honour Tanya's memory - there are no rules here! Your choice of piece, materials, theme. It doesn't have to be jewelry either - maybe you're a fabulous painter or drawing artist and you knew her... by all means, create something from the heart!
Most of all - remember her smile and her love for life! Hugs & love, Tanya, wherever you are!
