Sad News

Well I just found out that a "mini" friend passed away today from complications of pneumonia.  I am very sad to hear this.  I never met Jan in person but for the many years that I have been in miniature groups and swapping, I have had the pleasure of participating in a few swaps with her.  She was a very talented miniaturist. 

Just two weeks ago I received an amazing 1/4 scale doll from her.  It was part of an Alice in Wonderland Swap.  She made a Mad Hatter.  It's probably one of my favourite items that I have ever received in my years of swapping.

Tonight my thoughts are with Jan's family during this hard time.  Goodbye Jan.

Look how small it is.

  1. I'm sorry for your loss, Crystal. It doesn't matter whether or not you met Jan in person - sometimes we form special ties online and long distance.

    How nice that you paid tribute to her life on your blog.
