Today I wanted to share with you a special card drive that Jennifer McGuire blogged about a few days ago. This card drive really touched my heart because the purpose of it is to reach out to parents who have lost their babies.
This upcoming summer will be 3 years since my husband and I lost our first child, Isaac. I wrote about his story previously, and if you care to learn more you can read about it through this link- Isaac's Story. I'd encourage you to scroll all the way down the page and start at Part 1.
Anyway, the idea of giving hurting parents something special during this heartbreaking time in their lives is absolutely wonderful. I remember walking out of our doctor's office feeling like my world was turned upside down. If someone had handed me a little something special to let me know they were sharing my grief it would have definitely touched my heart.
So I made a quick video sharing a few of the cards I will be sending out. I hope you will take the time to watch, and if you feel moved to, send out a few cards of your own.

I just wanted to comment quick that I changed my mind about sending my "Hedgehug" cards. While I think they are adorable, I also think they are a little too lighthearted for this cause. I know my husband and I would not have been offended by receiving one, but I also know that everyone grieves in their own way. I definitely would not want anyone to feel I was being insensitive. The purpose is to send as much love as possible, which is something that parents truly need as they go through this dark time in their lives.
So glad you found me! This blog is my little space where I can share bits about my life and my latest crafting projects (mostly handmade cards). My goal is to share, inspire, and to be a positive presence in the creative community.
