The Sunday Showcase No. 232 in memory of Michelle Edwards | Sweet Something Designs

Last month we lost a very dear friend and blog colleague, Michelle Edwards.
Michelle was exceptionally talented and a beautiful person all around. Her work, creativity, courage, and strength have been a huge inspiration to me, as well as many others, worldwide. She has touched so many lives not only through her blog, Sweet Something Designs, but on the pages and covers of multiple magazines and publications. Michelle will not be forgotten.

We love you Michelle and will miss you dearly.
My thoughts and prayers are with Michelle’s entire family.

“….I think about things in a different perspective. I’m not the young go-getter with non-stop energy working all the time and trying to build a brand and get my foot in the door of a world I thought I wanted to be in….Maybe that is what God is trying to teach me? To slow down, look around and enjoy what I have and stop the incessant need to be constantly moving forward, perhaps in the direction He doesn’t want me to go. To be at home, to spend time with my boys and family….to…COOK, for crying out loud! :) To teach me to except who and what I am right now. Right here. And not think about petty things that really don’t mean anything….” – Michelle Edwards | Sweet Something Designs

  11. I am so sad to hear the news about Michelle. It’s funny because I was just thinking about her last week and thinking that I needed to check out her blog for any updates. Such a courageous battle. Cancer is never kind but it is always so much harder when it hits at such a young age. My thoughts go out to her family and especially her boys.

  12. My prayers are with Michelle and her family.

  20. My condolences. I am sorry for the loss of your friend.

  21. I hadn’t “found” Michelle yet, but thank you for telling us about her, and of her passing. I went to her blog and it’s a beautiful blog, but appears to be nowhere near as beautiful as she was. What a story she told–candid and bold and brave and scared. My condolences to her family; it’s a huge loss. Thank you for being here still, for us to share. ~Zuni

  22. when I saw the post her husband put on her blog to let us all know the sad day was here, I truly felt like I lost someone I knew. michelle was an inspiration in not only her blog, but in her outlook after her diagnosis.

  23. A beautiful tribute. Thank your for sharing.
