I wanted to share the pictures of the boxes with you because so many others helped to make them happen. Somehow I didn't take a picture of the actual baskets we used, and I hate that I didn't because my friend, Barbara C., really painted and decorated them up cutely! I did two - one boy and one girl - because I had expected to deliver a girl but it ended up being a boy, so JUST IN CASE, I wanted this sweet mama to have the right stuff.
|In the GIRL box/basket, we included a purple 8 1/2 x 11" purple binder with scrapbook pages inside.|
|Lynnette P. and I spent several hours making these pages used in the girl scrapbook.|
|We worked hard to make sure there were journaling spots, photo spots, and places for any more embellishments a mom might want to add to it.|
|In the BOY box/basket, we put these 12x12" scrapbook pages inside a book donated by Tracy A. Actually, Tracy donated the baskets, too!! And these pages were donated by Lisa P. THANK YOU LADIES for your help!!|
|Yvonne W. made this set of two blankets, 2 gowns/shirts, and 2 diapers using the Teeny Tears pattern. |
This was the BOY set.
|This yellow set of shirts/gowns, diapers, and blanket was also made by Yvonne W. |
Barbara C. and I made the bracelets. This was the GIRL set.
|This is the boy set of bracelets that Barbara C. and I made. The baby bracelets will be HUGE but they'll figure it out.|
|This is the GIRL burial outfit, hat, booties, and blanket made by Vicky N. of Paper Angel Designs. |
She makes fantastic tiny clothes!
|In the GIRL basket, I added this journal, two bunnies (one for mom, one for the casket), two packs of tissues, and |
the Scentsy travel tin (Sweet Pea & Vanilla for the little sweet pea) was donated by Natalie D.
|In the BOY basket, there is a journal under this blue/yellow moon blanket (Vicky N.), two bears (one for mom, one for the casket), two packs of tissues, and a Scentsy travel tin (Thunderstorm scent during a thunderstorm in life).|
|This is the boy basket, made with so much love, especially for angel baby Malachi Dexter Allred.|
P.S. Diapers made in memory of Seth were featured on the Teeny Tears blog this week.
