For Kari

Kari visited my blog a few weeks ago for the first time and stopped in on our fundraising site, Wishing Star Designs to have a look around. I have to admit I haven't updated it in quite some time, as this wait is looming longer and longer and I simply haven't had the energy to raise funds for something that is still such a long way off.

While visiting Kari saw a couple of things that she liked and generously ordered them and asked me to whip them up for her.

Here is the wall hanging I made for her. She loves dragonflies and purple like I do, so she wanted something similar to the one I made for our Sophie.

The poem reads:
We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life.
But those who make their journey home across time & miles,
growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them,
are carried on the wings of destiny and placed among us
by God's very own hands.
--- Kristi Larson

This is one of my favorite adoptions poems.


Kari also ordered a Mother's Bracelet but I am still waiting on some beads that I ordered(tapping foot impatiently) so I can start on it.

Thanks Kari, for the order, and also getting me to start crafting again after a very long dry spell!

I have also been working on a cute bow hanger for Grace and a friend's little girl.

I am wondering if people might be interested in these LID plaques since the wait is getting so long? They can be personalized and done in any color scheme you prefer.

We have ours hanging on the door to the nursery. They are $15.00

they are lovely. But, unfortunately my head in just not in the adoption thing at the moment.

Those are so adorable. And I love that adoption poem. How fitting.

Lea-I hear you. Been feeling much the same lately.
