Oh boy. I have so many emotions running through my head right now. I'm upset, I'm shocked, a little bit angry, anxious, you name it. The state of the world today is crazy. I thought about my myriad of emotions and I realized that I was aware of what I was feeling. That's awesome because if I'm aware of it, I can deal with it. There are so many issues in this world that hang out in the background. Awareness is key. Awareness is power.
One of my latest pieces is an awareness ribbon wreath. I made this one pink because everyone is pretty aware of breast cancer and how to help protect yourself with early detection and testing. Although I made this wreath pink, this piece can be customized because there are plenty of issues out there that need awareness. I'm going to make a purple ribbon for domestic violence awareness, but that can also symbolize pancreatic cancer, Hodgins Lymphoma, and other forms of cancer. I think the most important thing is that the ribbons symbolize awareness and healing. Honestly, they can be any color you want, and they can represent any issue that you want. The important thing is to remain aware.
I'm proud of these ribbons and equally proud to share them with you. I'm going to be creating more meaningful and unique decor, and eventually moving everything from my Etsy shop and my old website/blog (www.mommycandoit.com) over to this site. Remember, if would like ANYTHING on the site to be customized, please just let me know. Which awareness color would you like to see in my shop? Feel free to sound off below!
