Fun fact ... I love crafting ~ specifically memory pillows using favorite shirts from a beloved family member or friend.
Holding these precious garments is an incredibly personal experience for me. It's like I have been allowed a tiny little glimpse into the life of a person whom I've never met. These shirts once covered a beating heart. These shirts once covered arms that hugged loved ones. These shirts once lived a life.
Often the shirts are received still holding the scent of its owner and I love that. Scents can provide such sweet memories and comfort.
My dad was an Old Spice and tobacco kind of guy and every once in a while, I allow my senses to remember his fatherly hugs. Sweet memories.
Every pillow has a story of a life lived and loved and I'm always honored when asked to create such a special keepsake.
