In Memory of Jennifer
I have created an art doll that I am donating to a local Relay for Life auction. The art doll was created with my dear friend Jennifer McClain in mind. Jennifer passed away February 16th this year from Breast Cancer. She was a kindred spirit and was always very supportive of my crafting creations. She not only purchased my artwork for herself, but also as gifts for others. In every room of her home was something I had made for her or she had purchased from me. That means so much to have someone think your creations are worthwhile.
Jennifer's husband and 2 daughters are putting together a basket to be auctioned off at our local Relay for Life event this Friday night. The basket includes things that those of us close to her thought she would like. When her husband asked me to donate, this doll immediately came to mind. I set to work on her with Jennifer on my mind and heart the entire time.
I miss you my friend and I hope you would have liked our girl I created.
