A Tribute to Mary

A few weeks ago, I was asked to make a trio of dolls to symbolize a very special friendship. Mary, one of the group, was suffering from ovarian cancer and died a few days later. Mary loved to read, journal, play the flute and had dreamed of walking again along the beach and putting her feet in the water. This treasury was created in honor of Mary and her very special friends. To learn more about Mary, please visit a comfortable cup of tea . Mary's friend, Sarah, is a beautiful writer and her words will touch your heart.

I have begun offering Mary's fairy at huesofnature. Five dollars from each sale will be donated to Gilda's House in Detroit, a favorite of Mary's.

September is ovarian cancer awareness month. To learn more, visit ovarian

Back to school with a brand new do!

Our daughter learned that starting school with a brand new do and a donation to Locks of Love, a public non-profit that helps disadvantaged children in the U.S. and Canada who are suffering with long-term hair loss, makes you feel pretty good! The hair pieces are created especially for each child and are vacuum sealed so they can only be released by the child. No fear of losing one in gym class or on the playground! Kids can be kids again! Minimum length for donation is 10 inches. Visit Locks of Love to learn more!
