First Blog

Well, here we go... my first blog. My hope is to make this a place where many stories will be shared and in doing so hurting moms will be helped on their journey of healing. I receive emails every day from hurting moms who have lost their precious babies. And that is what Heaven Born is all about - comforting those moms and honoring their babies.

These photos are from the first annual "Sew-A-Thon" held at St. Louis Community College, Forest Park by a wonderful group of art students called "Creatives dot Comm". They help non-profits with whatever promotion or graphics they need. It is a wonderful way for art students to get real, hands-on experience and for non-profits to get the help they need at a price they can afford (Free!). So a big THANK YOU to all the wonderful people who made this event such a success!

Here are the talented art girls from Creatives dot Comm: Beth, Amy, Stormy, and Jillian

My speedy stuffers! These women were fast getting the pillows stuffed and ready to sew up.

The night was a great success! We had faculty, students, LOTS of Girl Scouts, sorority girls, and Heaven Born Craft Community regulars all getting together for a fun night of pillow making. And, it was a very productive night with just under 100 pillows made that night. What a help that was as I received a new order for 75 pillows for Barnes Hospital that had to be delivered by the end of the year. Perfect timing!

How awesome is this cake??? It is from McArthur's Bakery and they did a great job recreating the logo in such a tasty way!
