I decided that since the weather was stormy and windy today, that it would be a great day to work on my newest endevor, "Handmade Cards from the Heart!". I have decided that I will use up all of the store bought cards I have around the house, and then never again buy a card. I will be making all my cards from that point on.
Today, my focus was on BLM cards. I made a total of ten cards today and of course, I photographed them so everyone could take a peak.
Each card was made with love from the heart. I have decided that I will be including a card, like these, in each of the "Angel Care Packages" that I make for the Children's Hospital of Pennsylvania.
On the back of each card, I have added a simple and very plain symbol to show that I created each card. If you have received a handmade card from me in the past, you probably noticed the symbol on there also. I will continue to use this symbol for every card that is made.
Of course, I have my favorite! The favorite card was made with one BLM in mind, for I thought of her little girl the entire time I made the card. This card had a lot of love put into it and I know that when the BLM receives it, she will appreciate it!So, that is what I did with my first vacation day taken after the loss of my son, Wyatt James. I currently have 17 vacation days left, with the next one being taken tomorrow. I plan to continue to do something in honor of my son on each of the vacation days I have this year. For, I would have been spending time holding him, playing with him, teaching him, and loving him if he was with me on this Earth right now.
