Some of you know that this year has been tough for me. As a result, I am now being treated for a severe depression.
I am in a very dark place right now, and I am looking for the light at the end of a very long and dark tunnel.
So I’m taking a break. Taking a moment, pressing pause on my life; to figure out which path to take, and in what direction.
I will continue to blog, albeit sporadically, because I am still creating things. Crochet used to be what keeps me sane, and I’m trying really hard to find peace in crafting again. As long as I’m crafting, I’m alive, and as long as I’m alive, I might be able to find my way out of the darkness.
Thanks for sticking with me; I hope to be back in full force soon.

This is not Wink, but her little baby sister writing to you.
When Wink started this crochet blog back in 2011 she told you guys how crochet saved her live. As you might know Wink was in a dark period of her life the last couple of weeks. Unfortunately I have to tell you that last Friday it did not save her, her depression got the best of her and she took her own life. We are all very heart broken by this news, it was an absolute shock to all of us. She is leaving a mom, dad, little brother and sister and her loving boyfriend behind..."

Marinke, known to many as Wink, of A Creative Being, has succumbed to the depths of depression and taken her own life."
