This time last year I received this fabulous print through the post from http://www.nameart.co.uk/
Being a big Twitter fan I had followed Charis for a while and admired her fabulous work with names and art, during September 2012 she announced her newest venture 'Footprints'
I loved them and knew they'd be a great addition to our house and whilst I needed to include Alexander I wanted the acknowledgement that our circumstances were a little different.
Chatting with Charis she came up with the above picture including him as a member of our family, as Harrison's Twin and big brother to Joe but that his feet are millimetres smaller than Harrison's suspending him at an age always younger than his twin. His feet are a different colour to ours as he is different, I can't change this!
Since our commission Charis wanted to make these footprints a part of her site, realising there are many families in positions such as ours and so we batted a few ideas out on twitter and now Charis has created 'Never Forgotten' footprints and she has generously decided to donate 10% from the sales of these prints to The Lullaby Trust http://www.nameart.co.uk/themes/footprints/never-forgotten-footprint
I'd like to say a public Thank You to Charis for taking the idea for our prints and making them available to all families who have lost a member, we can no longer include them in photo's or watch them grow with us but the footprints are a permanent reminder that they were and always will be part of our family.
Welcome to our blog I will try as regularly as I can to keep you up to date with The Ball, The Charity and any other news !
