In Memory

I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend! I got to spend lots of time with my family, which to me is what any holiday is about...FAMILY :)

I got a neat request the other day to replace a part on a wind chime. The buyer had ordered the wind chime with a custom hanger, but didn't like at all how it turned out. She sent me a photo of  the original and told me what changes she wanted made and I created her a new hanger. She loved it :)

I got a very nice message from my buyer telling me how perfect the new hanger was and that it saved the wind chime that she would be giving as a gift.I then got a little teary-eyed when she told me that the wind chime would be given to her friend in memory of her 2 day old baby that had just passed away last month! I was so honored that I got to help make this gift so special!

Any time I think I'm just creating scrapbooks and engravings, I get a message like this that reminds me that I'm helping to preserve memories! And it makes me stop and remember my own family and give them an extra hug when I see them!


  1. I wish my family lived closer.
    I'm glad you got to save the gift and make it extra special. As always your work is amazing!

  2. Very special.

    Your work is always wonderful, I can see why she was so happy with it.

  3. This is so sad. Family is so important. We never know when a tragedy can occur. I am glad to hear you had a fullfilling holiday.

  4. What a nice gift and way to remember a loved one.

  5. Oh my. That's so terribly sad. But your work will be so loved:)

  6. so perfect! --your work, the memory you've helped preserve, the help you gave the family friend. This makes one's work so special and meaningful.

  7. How awesome! It is really special that you got to be involved in preserving that precious memory.

  8. How lovely! It is nice to know your work is a wonderful way for memories to be preserved.

    I hope you had a wonderful day with family and friends!
