Wedding Bells and Memories

One of the most important things in life is the love and support of family.  Celebrating happy times and picking each other up during hard times is what family is all about.  This family is a wonderful example of what family means.

Although I have only met this family through Once Upon a Time, you can feel the love they have for each other.  In the spring, Brandis asked us to make a memory blanket for her sister-in-law, Kiersten.  Kiersten had lost her Mom and this blanket is in memory of her.  This colorful blanket exudes happy memories and we hope it brings comfort and smiles.Remembrance Gifts by Once Upon a Time Creation

As Kiersten is getting married in the spring, she came to us with a request…a handkerchief that her Nan could carry on Kiersten’s wedding day.  There is a special message just for Nan monogrammed on the inside.  I truly believe Kiersten’s Mom will be smiling down on her throughout her wedding day and will always be there in spirit to guide and protect her.

To share the love with more of the family, Kiersten had these ornaments made from the remnants of the clothing.

Remembrance Stockings

Remembrance Stockings by Once Upon a Time CreationThe holidays are all about sharing the love.  These stockings were created for Kelly from her Mom’s clothing.  Each is unique and hold quite a bit of loot:)  I think my favorite is the snowflake stocking, made from cozy jammies.

Sweaters, pajamas, pants, jackets, along with their buttons, belt loops and pockets come together to celebrate Kelly’s Mom and Christmas.

Those we love are with us always.  May Peace surround you as we approach this wonderful holiday season.
