For starters I wanted to say how thrilled I am to see the Minimalist Beauty Community growing, and how much I enjoy reading your comments and kind words. This week I spent hours looking through all of the DIY articles that I’ve written since the beginning in 2010, and created a new system of organizing these articles so that they would be so much easier to find.

With all of that said, I also wanted to share some really sad news with you. Yesterday my father-in-law passed away suddenly. It was very unexpected.

It may be a week, it may be two, I’m honestly not sure. I know that sometimes putting yourself in your work is also a good distraction, but I truly don’t know. During this time Twitter and Facebook will most likely be very quiet as well, yet please continue to share your thoughts and new discoveries with each other there if you like.
