I find that as we swiftly go through life I often need to pause and figure out what is most important. One of the things I get great joy out of is giving back to community. These are a couple of projects that I have been working on over the summer. A memory box program that supplies the hospitals with hand painted boxes for the mothers to take home and cherish the memory of their deceased newborn. The other is a wildlife conservation fundraiser where we painted feathers that are to be put up for auction.
