Today I am featuring Squishy Bee
Bunny RacerI have always been artistic and crafty. I went to college for Fine Art and came home with a BFA in 2005.
How did it all start?
Last year a friend told me about Etsy so I checked it out. Now I have my own little shop!
Simply Sophisticated Hand Dyed Burp Cloth
Tell me a little about your charity and why you donate.
My charity is Share of Lancaster. Share of Lancaster exists to bring comfort and understanding to families who have suffered the loss of a baby through miscarriage, pregnancy complications, prematurity, stillbirth, SIDS and any other cause. They stand by parents in their journey of grief, offering a helping hand, a listening ear and open arms. They also provide educational programs for health professionals and the community. All of the services are offered free of charge.
In 2003 I had suffered the loss of my second child, his name was Jonathan. Giving birth to my sweet stillborn baby, knowing the pain others had gone through and will go through, made me want to do something to help other families. So my "Angel Babies" were born:) For every angel baby sold $5 goes to this charity!
For my fellow Artisans: Do what you love and don't give up! It may take a while to get your name out there and known--just remember, it's work and not an overnight process
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I cannot imagine what it would feel like to loose a child. What a wonderful thing to pass along the comfort you were given in your time of need.
