January 20, 2010 my life was drastically altered. I gave birth to a miracle baby girl taking me & my husband on a wild ride that has forever changed how we think, view, & respond to life.
Her first 2 years of life have been filled with multiple surgeries, including an open heart surgery as well as a liver transplant. As we approach the 2 year mark, we’re hardly “done”, but we’re adjusting. We welcome prayers & encouragement on her blog: www.lilsophie.wordpress.com
This experience presented many idle hospital hours where I used my time to make hair clips for our little girl who battled to live. I’ve also met numerous families with so many heartbreaking situations.
God has shown me how fragile & quick life is – I plan on using my precious time working to encourage others through the talents He’s gifted me. I now make hair clips, jewelry, art, etc with inspirational messages. I sell them in local shops and online in my Etsy Shop. As you’ll see my pieces often contain text from recycled magazines or greeting cards – encouraging words mostly – things hard to say to others in the midst of their dark place.
