Christmas Donation to the Children’s Hospital

Today was the day I made my finals donation of the year to Brenner Children’s Hospital.

Thanks to two craft fairs and special orders that I received, I was able to donate 121 items, this ended up being 31 sets<3. IMG_0352.JPG

I knew it was a lot, but seeing it all come together was just amazing!


As we drove to the children’s hospital, I had the local Christmas music station on, and it happened to be the big funding drive for the children’s hospital….you know, where during the music, they interject with stories from families.

I couldn’t believe how much I was moved to tears. I was warned how when you become a mother emotions can hit you strong, but man!

I glanced in my passenger mirror and saw my healthy happy son in his car seat, dancing away to the music. The fact struck me that I’ve taken him 4 times now to the children’s hospital but never because of him or my daughter needing to have attention there…we’ve only ever been there purely for donating items.

I cannot imagine how hard this season must be on parents who are going through the unknown with their child. Sigh….all I can do is continue to say little prayers for the people there and for continued health. I also say thanks for all of the support people; doctors, nurses, receptionists, valets. They all work in concert to create as welcoming and loving environment as possible. It shows.

I am grateful that there are such exceptional facilities out there to help not only the children, but the families as well.

I hope that they will enjoy the peg people and homes I’ve made for them. I hope that these things, while material, will bring smiles and joy to those who receive them.

I love so very much the fact that I am able to create for these special people.

I will always keep to heart that…They Will Love Your Effort<3

Hi! My name is Dominique and I'm lucky enough to be the wife to my True Love and mother to a little girl and a little boy. I grew up in the Midwest but have loved living in NC, our new home. I'm actually an Industrial Engineer by schooling, but am now a domestic engineer(Stay-at-home-Mom) and feel very blessed to have this job. I have always loved the challenge in making the most of things...whether it's figuring out that a filing cabinet , a $10 piece of countertop and a few scraps of wood can be turned into a desk, that a curtain sheer, some ribbon, and a square piece of fabric can be transformed into an Elsa-like dress, or how to provide an interesting lunch for my little girl who is in a peanut free classroom. I love to figure things out and to create. I hope you enjoy reading my posts. I hope that my posts will inspire you to create. I hope that with my posts you will see that They Will Love Your Effort, whether things turn our perfect or not;-)
