....A new website for our line of RE "darling(ed) "(as a verb) CLOTHES FOR
Small TREE Huggers!
Come say hello, beginning tomorrow,
We were sitting around with PILES of LOVELY, barely worn clothes ( baby and children's so far!) and wanted to do MORE than drop them somewhere to be resold"as is".
I can sew, I a EX-KINDERGARTEN TEACHER AND MOTHER OF 5 at it's largest,children,I love to play with fabric,glue,paint,stamps.anything hands on and messy.
In an hour, "Hello CUPCAKE" , our PREMEIRE
ReDarling outfit was BORN !(CREATED!?)
That was the beginning of the fun and the END of tidyness in our new, downsized empty nest.
Over a hundred Redarling outfits later, we are launching.
We LOVE doing special requests
( can you make something from my son's old football Jersey??)
and will gratefully pay for you to ship us anything you wish to have reDarling(ed)
Don't throw it out, don't let it get sold As is(all wrinkly and suspect)
Send it here, we will wash, itron and turn it into something DARLING!
See Blogspot for that, though.
But come visit the site tomorrow, and we will
give everyone who comments, and a coupon for 25% off in EARTH MONTH!
(Much of our proceeds~ exc;uding the shipping we do for other's Re doable's, shipping cost, taxes, and out of pocet, occasional but absolutely necessary things like replacement sewing machines, bits of whatever necessary to make something PERFECT, etc.shall be split between The Compassionate Friends and The Epilepsy Foundation)
****WE are specialists in remaking a treasured item of a child "GONE TOO SOON"
into a treasure for the family. We have lost 3 children , separately and unexpectedly and know how hard it is to do this yourself.
We happily do this at no cost to you. All we ask is that you package the item( clothes, photos, toys,trophy,jewlrey,WHATEVER combination, to us with a letter explaing ( it's hard, but try) WHO your Gone Too Soon Child WAS, personality, friendships, relationship w/family members, names of family members, best pals, fave toys/games/activities.colors, foods,
trips,vacations you had,special times of any nature ~ essentially all you can so we can make certain what we do is up to your standards. We'd love a phone call after receiving the letter and items to discuss details and ideas YOU may have. More on the Blogspot, too!
The photo below is that of a most unexpected, but now prized above all else, gift from a wonderful human being named
who makes these
One of a kind bracelets
for people who have lst a child ( small child, newborn, adult child-it matters NOT)
She is an important Board member of The Compassionate Friends whose yearly Convention
is being held in Arlington, VA
this July 2-5(I believvvve??)
She constructs these bracelets to YOUR specs ( fave colors, animals, sayings) then uses
handblowm Murano Beads,Silver Charms ,lovely spacers, etc.
For a meager 50.00
When MaryEllen heard of us and our loss of 3 children,
THIS showed up in my mailbox one day. It is indeed a one of a kind
"The L----C---,R---Memory Bracelet"
It is our smaller scale desire to create one of a kind
"Memory Treasures" for you!
