I know that many of you have chosen to use the blinkie that I made for Pregnancy Loss but I know that recurrent losses isn't the same as just one loss. I would very much like to create a blinkie in honor of all your lost children. I need ideas for colors & sayings. Any ideas will be considered & probably used. I hope I'm not intruding, just wanted to give you girls a "gift" of sorts.

Love you all!
Astrid

I'm a rainbows and butterflies kind of girl. I also like the size of the Pregnancy Loss blinkie, it goes well with the box style tickers.

Astrid,
Thanks so much! Unfortunately, I am not a visual person whatsoever, and I have absolutely no clue what to do as far as design is concerned (I seriously think that part of my brain doesn't exist ). I would be okay with a box that had the words of the board on it, but I'm sure that's no fun to do!
Thanks again.

It's so sweet of you to offer to do this for us... I'm really big on butterflies because I think they're so symbolic of the end/beginning of life idea.. It brings me some comfort.

But as always, I'm sure whatever you make will be beautiful!! Thanks again, sweetie!

I liked the last line of the butterfly poem on the labelledame website.. "Each flutter in my heart is your wings." Then maybe "Recurrent Loss Board."

Just another idea.. Thanks again, Astrid!

Excellent idea Nicole!!! Let me run it by Beck since she is the host & I will get on it! I'll make a couple of different ones so that you can choose.

I am thrilled with the idea & have pm'd Astrid that as well. I am so glad you all put so much interest & thought into it. I think it is perfect.
