Nicole contacted me a few weeks back to participate in a wonderful and inspiring project, The Wellness Tree. Touched by a comment she once received from a woman named Kelly, she pursued to know her better and she did. Kelly blogs with her best friend Kandyce at Notions and Threads and also has cancer. Here is what Nicole shared with me:
Natalie wanted to make an owl for Kelly (since we all know that owls are our favorite). She picked gray for the color (felt glued to cardboard cut in the shape of an owl) and glued on glittered red buttons for the eyes. She drew a heart on a piece of gingham fabric, I cutted it for her and she also glued it on.
I decided on a white bird, like a dove I suppose. Doves usually carry the symbolism of peace which I think we all need within our hearts, especially when times are tough. I also thought of grace while making this for Kelly as well.
These little tokens of love are ready and being shipped to Nicole to get them ready for Kelly. Please stop by The Wellness Tree to see all the wonderful ladies who participated in this community of inspiration and love.
