Losing Glitter has been one of the hardest things I have been through. The whole experience left my heart changed. At times I felt so alone in my pain, but every time I told someone my story, often I would hear that they went through a loss themseleves, or know someone who went through a loss. I was most certainly not alone.
Learning about all these lost babies, all these loved babies I wanted to do something. I wanted to hug all the families who went through this. But I was not sure how.
Recently I made some jewllery for a very special friend, my mom and myself. I ordered these beautiful feather charms. As I was searching the pages for the right pieces I stumbled upon small, beautiful, silver feathers. You could order a lot of them for a great price. And I knew what I had to do.
I wanted a physical, tangable way to connect with those going through similar pain. I wanted to show them that we were together in our healing, how ever that looked. And so The Glitter Effect was born.
To those that want them, that like the idea of a symbol of their loss and feeling a connection with others, I am giving away all these feather charms. I am also including a small bag of glitter with the feather. You can sprinkle it in remembrance (this was so healing for us) or you can glue it on a card with an older child or you can put the feather in the bag and put it in your jewellery box and every time you open it up you will see this little feather and know your baby is loved and that others are missing and loving lost babies too. I also include a little card explaining this all, in case you want to gift this small present to someone you think needs it.
I am not trying to offend anyone, or tell them how to heal. This is just something that was on my heart and wanted to share it all with you. I feel sometimes talking about miscarriage is a taboo, I don't know why. So maybe spreading these feathers around will allow for us all to talk more, maybe not.
Anyway, if you want one e-mail me, facebook me, comment here LET ME KNOW! I will send you one, in the mail, for free, with love. I have 50, but can easily order more. I can't promise how quick they will get to you, but I will try.
I love you friends.
