Two years ago about this time my daughter got diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. I was diagnosed with MS about 6 months before her and we both have Rheumatoid Arthritis as well. I have a few more auto immune diseases to go along with those two. So far, she only has the two, but she still has littles at home. Her youngest is 5 and will go to kindergarten this coming fall. I understand, first hand, how difficult these diseases can be and I try to encourage her every chance I get. We got matching tattoos last year of a feather on the inside of our wrists so when I got these two stamp sets, I knew I wanted to make something for her. I did some other cards using the Feather Finery Stamps and coordinating dies here, which she saw and loved. We live in different states so she doesn't get to see my work too often except here on my blog and on my Instagram.
Whenever I see feathers I automatically think of a poem and a bible verse. The poem starts like this:
I love this verse from Emily Dickinson so much that I've sent it as a suggestion to one of the Papertrey Product Designers who always does the most incredible typography. The verse goes so well with Feather Finery and I hope she will consider it. I might have to break down and order it if that doesn't happen. I'm not going to link products in this post as you can easily look them up on the Papertrey Website. Have a great day everyone!
