UPDATED: I have trouble following Jen Sue's amazingly brave and heartfelt post as well as Jen O's equally touching comment. I have never experienced loss like that. I can't say I relate or "I know how you feel." But I have experienced sadness in my life. I have had my heart broken not by boys but by so called friends. It has made me weary of people. But with the help of true friends and family I'm working on it and starting to come back out of my shell.
You never know what your heart can take until you've pushed it to it's limits. Losing a child must be like pushing the heart to its breaking point. And the only thing keeping a heart from cracking in two is Love.
So that's why I chose to the word LOVE for this Tuck In Idea. This apron swap is all about Love. You spend time and money on a project for some person you've probably never met. You go searching through their blogs, reading their comments, and find out all you can about a person so you can make them an apron that truly makes them happy. This is my first time doing this and I'm already having so much fun getting to know not only my swap sister but the rest of you.
So here it is - LOVE
L - Lollypops, Light-up ornaments, Lily, anything Little, Lights
O - Off white, Opener, Origami, Oven mitt (with tutorial!)
V - Votive, Vanilla scones, homemade Vanilla extract, Vintage ornament
E - Evergreen, Eclairs, Estrellas (stars ;0), Earrings, Envelope Pillow cover! (with tutorial)
(P.s. these are harder to come up with than you think, hence a few repeats on O)
And now for my sneak peak...
