Birth Keepsakes

As I was flipping through old photo albums, I came across this birth announcement card and these hospital bracelets from the day my husband was born. I tried to imagine that top bracelet fitting around his tiny wrist. As I held the second, larger bracelet I thought, "This is something his mother wore." I never had the privalege of meeting my husband's mother and at the moment that I held that bracelet, I felt a connection to her as I imagined what she must have been thinking and feeling on that day so long ago. Love. Tremendous amounts of love. How fortunate I am that these precious keepsakes were saved over the years and that I was able to feel that love and connection through a small piece of plastic.

My name is Jodie and I am a wife and mother of four. I love to bake, craft, travel, exercise, hike and explore new things. I'm excited to use the SHOTBOX to highlight my creations and to show you how this simple tool can bring light and life to your passions too.

The SHOTBOX is a collapsible tabletop studio that uses high powered LEDs to create a perfectly lit “micro-studio” environment. They are now taking pre-orders to be delivered for Christmas.
