A Birthday Gift for a Special Someone
Today is one of my employees birthday, Tristin. Tristin is one of the most beautiful, caring, and strongest woman I know. Over a year ago, Tristin lost her baby. Her husband and her only got to spend a few precious minutes with their beautiful baby girl when she was born.
I made Tristin a sparrow brooch/ornament for her birthday. The sparrow is holding a ribbon where I embroidered Khaylena, the baby’s name. I also stamped the sparrow on a burlap bag, painted it, and embroidered Tristin’s name on it.
I know she’ll love this gift because we have talked about it before. I just hope it doesn’t cause her to shed many tears.
