I was very saddened to hear news that talented and lovely fellow crafter / blogger Gretel from the Middle of Nowhere blog had tragically lost her long term partner after he took his own life. This has left Gretel, not only devastated but in real danger of losing her home. If you follow her blog you would see that this is a home that they had waited a long time for and had not long lived there.
Some very kind friends of Gretel's have set up an amazing artist's raffle to raise money to help her in this time of great need.
The raffle prizes that have been donated are stunning and there are so many of them! Many many well know crafters/bloggers have donated including Viv from Hens Teeth, Kirsty Elson from Sixty One A, Tif from Dottie Angel and the list goes on and on... You can see the full list of prizes and read about the fundraiser on the Funds for Gretel Blog Page.
You can enter the raffle via this link ...Indie Gogo. For every pound you donate you get one virtual raffle ticket.
Also, please do visit Gretel's blog if you would like to learn more about what has happened and about Gretel and her amazing work too. Here blog can be found here... Middle Of Nowhere

Mental illness can be such a cruel and devastating illness and my heart really goes out to Gretel and all of their friends and family. It is so very heart warming though to see how so many people have offered help and messages of comfort. I'm sure its been a small ray of light during a very very dark time.
