For Christine

Christine is one of the DT members a Studio Calico. She has very inspiring, beautiful work, and is a really sweet girl. I am happy to call her my friend.
Through her blog we have also gotten to know her family. Unfortunatley, her husband Eric has been battling brain cancer and passed away yesterday, leaving behind Christine and their young son. My heart aches for her, but I live so far away there isn't much I can do. That said, April posted this at Studio Calico:

Over the past several months we’ve gotten to know Christine Middlecamp through the message board, but even more deeply in the layouts and images she posts of her family. Not only is her talent amazing, but her strength in dealing with the battle her husband faced served as an example for us all. Our hearts are breaking with hers today with the loss of Eric last evening.
Many of you have expressed the desire to help in any way that you can. Because of that, we are offering a way to contribute toward a flower fund. Any amount beyond what is needed for flowers will be given to Christine to use as needed. You may send donations to the Studio Calico Paypal Account at Funds will be kept separate from regular kit fees (see instructions below).
Please title your donation “For Christine” in the email subject line. It is necessary that you indicate that on the email so that funds can be kept separate. Donations will be accepted until 10:00pm EST on Tuesday. Please do NOT donate after this time.
To send money to SC’s Paypal account, log into your Paypal account at
Click on “Send Money” in the bar on the top of the page.
Enter in the email line.
Enter “For Christine” in the subject line
Enter the amount you wish to donate.
Press “send”

Of course my thoughts and prayers are with Christine and her family during this difficult time in her life. Every little bit will help, but more importantly, please send positive thoughts and prayers her way.
