Saoirse's First Plane Ride

To get away from it all, we went to Ireland. We were excited and sad and frustrated and happy all at the same time. It was hard to go, and even harder to come home. We brought our Saoirse Pendants with us, and took pictures of them while we traveled around. We could have taken more photos of her I'm sure, but sometimes it was hard to remember to do. We have enough though, including her first plane rides!

Flying Home From Ireland February 15th, 2012

I will post more Ireland photos tomorrow. First I have to find them all :)

Being Passed Out...

So after an initial flop with one of the pieces I bought to make the molded resin into pendants, I have now finally finished the first round. They will be handed out within the next couple of weeks, with instructions on how to share photos. For those who receive a pendant, please respect the process and take lots of pictures. I am hoping to see her everywhere! 

Thanks everyone!

The Pendant Project....Remembering Saoirse

There were so many people that were important in Saoirse's life. Those that were the closest to her will be receiving a pendant that I made to remember her. I made these pendants from casting resin and embedded two things within them - 1: a bead from the beads program at the hospital (each bead represents a procedure or event in her treatment), and 2: a little bit of her ashes. I made them instead of finding vial pendants to put her ashes in. This is much more personal (and less breakable). 

If you receive a pendant, there is one requirement that comes with it - this is where the Pendant Project comes in. When you travel, whether near or far, take a picture of Saoirse's pendant where you are so we can keep track of all the places she has been. Email the pictures to along with the place and the date (month and year are fine). The images will be shared here, as well as put into photo books that will show all the places she has been. The goal? To have Saoirse be able to see the world and to spread her message of strength wherever she goes. 

Together, let's make Saoirse the most well traveled toddler ever!
