The Whimy Shop, check it out

One of my wonderful sponsors, Janice, is off of maternity leave and ready to rock out some orders. 

Her most popular necklaces are the birthstone necklaces, and the remembrance necklaces. 

The birthstone necklaces are stunning. So simple, yet so meaningful. 

You have the option of silver or copper colored wire, and of course, she has the option of all birthstone colors available. What a great gift for moms, grandmoms, etc.
Her remembrance necklace is her other popular seller. Janice explains it more beautifully than I can.

"After losing our own baby, Jack, after complications from a heart surgery I designed this remembrance necklace. It reminds me of something precious being encircled by two arms. The necklace is hammered to represent the beauty which comes from going through difficult circumstances." 

Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day is on October 15th.  The purpose of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day is to promote Support, Education and Awareness for grieving parents nationwide (and worldwide).

Miscarriage and infant loss affects so many families. 
According to a national report in 2000, 1 million of the 6.4 million pregnancies in the US ended in either a miscarriage or stillbirth;  and in 2003,  27,500 babies died before the age of one.

Parents who have lost babies love to hear that others remember their children and miss them.  If you know of anyone who has lost a baby, give them a call or drop them a note on Saturday.  It doesn't have to be anything special.  Just let them know you are thinking of them and their precious baby.  It will mean so much to them. 

Janice can do this precious necklace with one, two or three birthstone charms. 

With Remembrance Day coming up, and Christmas right around the corner, her etsy shop is definitely worth checking out.
